From car crashes to motorbike accidents, there are many different incidents that can happen on the road nowadays. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, you will rightly be wondering whether you are entitled to compensation. Keep on reading to discover more about making motorcycle claims in Stroud.
Making motorcycle claims in Stroud
There are several key factors that need to be considered when determining whether you have the basis for making motorcycle claims in Stroud, including:
- Who caused the accident? The first thing you need to do is establish responsibility for the accident. Who is to blame for the crash that took place? You need to show that someone else caused it. Perhaps the other driver was on their phone? Maybe they were speeding? There are a whole number of things that can lead to a crash, yet you certainly cannot be at fault if you want to make a claim.
- Have you seen a doctor for your injuries? You will struggle to find any solicitor that will take on claims for road traffic accidents if the victim has not seen a medical professional. It is imperative to see a doctor, as they will put together a medical report and this is essentially proof of your injuries and your suffering. This is the most important piece of evidence in any personal injury case and it is used to determine how much compensation you will receive.
- When did the accident occur? Last but not least, the date of the accident is imperative, as there is a three-year time limit on all claims. Therefore, if you were injured on 16th May 2015 you will have until 15th May 2018 to make a claim, which means you haven’t got very long left at all, especially as court proceedings need to be issued within this time frame.
