The 3 Step Compensation Process
There are three key steps that need to be taken before you can begin making a claim for your broken arm. Your injury solicitor in Bourton-on-the-Water will also need to check that these key factors are all correct in order to begin:
- Step 1: WHO caused the accident?
If you have been left with a broken arm, or any other injury, your injury solicitor in Bourton-on-the-Water will need to ascertain or verify who is responsible for the accident. The important thing to remember here is that you must not have been in any way to blame for the incident.
- Step 2: WHEN did the accident happen?
Within British law relating to personal injury compensation, it clearly states that the claim must be made within 3 years of the date of the accident. Although your injury solicitor in Bourton-on-the-Water and their team will understand that your priority will be to rehabilitate and recover from the incident, you will need to keep an eye on this deadline. Depending on the severity of your injuries and complexities of your accident, you may find that your case needs to be resolved within this 3 year timeframe. If you are in any doubt, contact Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 as soon as possible.
- Step 3: WHAT treatment did you receive for your injuries?
Again, it is important as well as laid down in the finer detail of the law that you must have had your injuries assessed, diagnosed and treated by a medical professional. This, as your injury solicitor in Bourton-on-the-Water will verify, can be done by your own doctor, the team at your local Accident & Emergency department as well as other medical professionals from physiotherapists to counsellors.
