A victim of a Lewes car accident may wish to claim compensation for any injuries sustained. Claiming compensation is more straightforward than you may have believed, thanks to the straightforward approaches adopted by Accident Advice Helpline. How do you qualify for compensation? Read more about how as well as ways you can get in touch with us to discuss your claim below.
How to qualify for car accident compensation
Time of the accident – Many people are unaware that you have up to three years to make a claim for compensation. This means if you have been putting off making a claim or thought it was too late, you could still be in with a chance of getting the compensation you deserve. If your accident involved a minor, you may have even longer to claim – which you can discuss with one of Accident Advice Helpline’s team.
Who was responsible for the accident? – In order to claim compensation, the accident must have been caused by someone else. In the case of car accidents, it must have been the result of someone else’s negligence – either another driver or those responsible for maintaining the road. If you can prove that the accident wasn’t your fault, then you may be able to make a claim.
Were your injuries caused by the accident? – You must be able to get proof from a doctor that your injuries were caused by your accident. Without this, you will not be eligible to claim. Some injuries such as breaks, cuts and fractures are more obvious from the outset, whereas others such as concussion or neck, back and shoulder injuries could take longer to appear.
