Injury specialist in Sowerby Bridge
Are you looking for an injury specialist in Sowerby Bridge? If so, then this handy Q&A can help you find your way through this often complicated minefield.
Personal injury law is a vast and complicated area with all sorts of uncertainties. Making the wrong choice when selecting a lawyer can lead to many problems down the line. So, what should you know now to ensure you’re forearmed?
When can I claim?
You can claim for almost any type of accident, from slips or falls in the street to injuries in the workplace, on the roads or in public places. The two main factors to look at are:
- Blame – was it someone else’s and not your own?
- Injury – was the injury serious enough to warrant a claim? In other words, what kind of an impact has it had on your day to day lifestyle? Are you spending money to treat the condition or have you lost money through an inability to work?
If you can answer ‘yes’ to these two questions, then you will have a very good chance of claiming compensation for your injuries.
I was hurt four years ago – can I still claim?
Oh dear, we’re afraid not. Under UK law you can only make a claim for those accidents which happened within the last three years. Anything further away than that and regardless of how good your case might be, you will not be able to make a claim.
The other side is contesting blame – what do I do?
This is quite common. In many cases, the issue of blame and culpability is far from clear cut. The other party may well think they were not at fault, and in some cases may even make a counter claim against you. In such cases, the courts will look carefully at the case and decide whose version of events they find most compelling. In doing this, they will probably rely heavily on independent evidence, such as witness statements.
