Deciding whether you should make a negligence claim in Tameside!
Should you make a negligence claim in Tameside? The all-important question. If you have never made a personal injury claim before or you have no legal experience, it can be extremely difficult to know whether you have the basis for a compensation claim. There is a lot of conflicting information on the Internet and consequently it is difficult to know where to start. You obviously want to make sure you get the money you are entitled to. However, if your case is weak, you may not want to waste your time. So, how do you decide whether to make a negligence claim in Tameside?
There are three different aspects you need to look at. These are as follows…
- Who caused the incident?
- Have you received professional medical attention?
- When did the accident happen?
Let’s deal with the first question. Who caused the accident? It is imperative that someone else caused your injuries. You need to be able to prove that an individual has acted negligently or made an error, and that this has then resulted in your suffering. You certainly will not be able to claim if you are at fault.
Aside from this, it is imperative that you have seen a doctor for your injuries if you want to make a negligence claim in Tameside. A lot of people bypass a trip to the doctor, as they would rather cope with their injuries themselves. However, a professional medical diagnosis is the most important piece of evidence when it comes to cases like this.
Last but not least, the date of the accident is also incredibly important. Did you know that there is a three year time limit on all personal injury cases? You have three years from the date of the incident and court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. Thus, it is so important to make sure you don’t wait around when it comes to making a claim.
