Is making a negligence claim straightforward?
Making a negligence claim can be a challenge if you have little evidence to show someone else was responsible for your injuries.
Sometimes, it’s very obvious who is responsible for an accident. In a road traffic accident for example. If you’ve been shunted from behind at the traffic lights, it’s going to be clear that the car behind was to blame. These days many drivers have dashcams to avoid any doubt about who was to blame for a car crash.
If you’ve been injured at work then you will very likely have witnesses. As long as you’ve been following your employer’s health and safety rules then you’ll have a strong case for claiming compensation if you’re hurt. If, for example, you’ve fallen from a height because of lack of risk assessments by your employer then you should definitely think about making a negligence claim.
If you’ve developed an industrial disease over a period of time then you will need professional medical evidence when making a negligence claim. These types of personal injury claims can be more difficult to prove.
Who can help you with making a negligence claim?
It will have to be someone independent with enough expertise to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. A self-taught friend will not be enough. An advice bureau may be able to point you in the right direction but won’t be able to see your claim through to success.
You need a law firm with the resources to handle the whole claim for you from your first enquiry to your compensation settlement.
