A wise man once said there are always three sides to any story – yours, mine and the truth. However, when it comes to personal injury law it’s important to make sure that the facts back up your version of events. This is why if you’re living in Magor no,win no-fee compensation depends on your ability to provide evidence, which supports your case.
Magor no-win, no-fee compensation
The majority of claims that we deal with at Accident Advice Helpline never make it as far as the courts. This is because the other side tends to do their own assessment of where things stand and in most cases will decide that they don’t stand much chance of winning. If so, they will look at ways in which they can reduce the amount they are going to have to spend. Their best chance of doing this is to avoid going to court and all the legal fees and expenses that will bring. So they will try to settle out of court.
Proving your case
However, complications set in if the other side think they have a good chance of winning. An example of this could be a road traffic accident, in which both sides think the other was to blame. The courts will have to decide whose version of events they find most compelling.
In situations such as this, the burden of proof lies with you, as the claimant. The defendant is in the position of being the accused, in which case they will benefit from being considered innocent until proven guilty. This means that if you aren’t able to demonstrate your case to the full satisfaction of the courts, you won’t stand much chance of getting a successful outcome.
When we assess any potential claim we always go on the basis of what we think we can prove. Yes, most cases don’t go to court, but we have to act on the assumption that they will.
To help us with this you’ll have to provide as much information as possible. So if there are any witnesses, give us their names and contact details and we’ll get in touch with them.
You should also hold nothing back when discussing the ways in which you have been injured. Many people fail to tell us everything which means they can end up receiving less compensation than they should be entitled to. It’s a shame when that happens and it’s something everyone should be keen to avoid.
