If you’re looking for a legal specialist in Newcastle Emlyn, you might find yourself a little daunted by the thought of making a claim, but follow these simple instructions and you’ll have everything you need.
1. Assess your own claim
There are many people that naturally think they have a right to make a personal injury claim. The problem is that often they turn out to be incorrect. The important thing is to try and make an assessment which is as dispassionate as possible. Try to leave your own feelings out of it and think about it in the same way that the courts will. They will decide not only on the basis of what they think happened, but what can be proven – you should too.
Under law, you will be entitled to claim if you have been injured in the last three years, the accident was not your fault and if the injury was bad enough to require medical attention. When you go to court, you will be required to demonstrate that the injury has had a clear and measurable effect on your quality of life.
2. Get help
Finding advice from an expert is important and you can do this by calling our 24-hour helpline. This allows you to get a second opinion from a real expert about the merits of your case as well as an indication about the likely level of compensation that you might expect to receive if you are successful in your claim.
In general terms, this one conversation should be enough to decide whether or not you have a realistic chance of winning. However, to gain further information on the level of injuries you’ve suffered it may be a good idea to get a follow up medical assessment to look into just how badly you have been hurt.
3. Get evidence
The majority of our cases are not contested and tend to be settled out of court. However, when there is disagreement over what happened, it will depend on which side the court finds most convincing. This, in turn, will depend on who has the evidence to support their case. For this reason, it’s a very good idea if you gather the names of any witnesses to the incident and hand them over to your lawyer who will then contact them directly.
