If ever you find yourself in a situation where you have been injured through the fault of someone else, you might want to consider making a personal injury claim for compensation. This can be a daunting prospect for victims to undertake, but can be simple, quick and efficient if you use an injury lawyer in Tillicoultry.
Take a step at a time with Accident Advice Helpline
The law of the land says that if you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, if your injuries needed medical attention and the accident took place no more than 3 years ago, you are entitled to claim compensation from whoever was responsible.
Making a personal injury claim is a legal process that needs working through by people that understand the complexities of the law, such as Accident Advice Helpline. We are personal injury specialists and can help you with one phone call if you’re looking for a lawyer in Tillicoultry.
Before the claim is started, our trained advisors will first of all need to check that you fit the criteria for making a claim and if you do, they will then go through all the evidence you need to support your claim.
This could be:
- Details of any witnesses that saw the accident
- Photos of the accident scene, perhaps taken on your mobile phone
- Police or HSE reports if either of them were called to the accident
- Medical reports to prove your injuries
- Anything else you feel may help your claim, no matter how trivial it may seem
These things are not always needed, if for instance the guilty party admits they were to blame for the accident that caused your injuries, but they can still help your lawyer in Tillicoultry to get you the best compensation they can.
The next step
So now we know you fit the criteria and have evidence you were not at fault, the next step is to look at what things will be included in the personal injury claim, such as:
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- The impact on your life
- Your prospects for the future
- Loss of earnings
- Extra medical expenses
- Travel costs
- Childcare costs
- Home adaptation or moving
- Funeral and probate costs in the case of a fatal injury claim
All of the expenses can be reclaimed as long as you have proof of them. The same applies to any loss of earnings. Wage slips would be ideal, but if you do not have them, your employer or accountant will be asked to confirm the reduction in your income.
