If you need to make a compensation claim, you need to employ the services of an injury lawyer. Castle Donington may have plenty of legal firms for you to choose from, but not all lawyers deal in personal injury law so you may need to find a more specialised company to deal with your claim. All personal injury firms will ask for the same three criteria to be satisfied before you can make a claim.
The inside track on claiming with an injury lawyer in Castle Donington
- The accident must have occurred within three years of the start of the claim.
- The accident must have been someone else’s fault. This does not have to be an individual — it can be a company or individual — but it must have been their negligence that caused the incident.
- You must have suffered a personal injury as a result. This injury must have received medical attention and you must be able to prove that you sought medical help.
- You must have details of the accident, including any witness contact details, details of medical appointments and photographs. The more detail you can give your injury lawyer in Castle Donington, the better your chances of success. If it was an accident to which the police were called, you will need the incident report number.
