How do I know if I should go ahead and make a negligence claim in Three Rivers?
So you have been involved in an incident and you are wondering whether you will be able to claim. This is a dilemma a lot of people find themselves in. Of course if you have a strong chance of getting compensation you will obviously want to go ahead with your claim and get the money you are entitled to. However, if you are unsure about the strength of your case, you may be reluctant to waste energy and time on trying to get compensation. So, keeping that in mind, read on to discover how to determine whether you should make a negligence claim in Three Rivers.
Questions to ask yourself about your claim
The first question you need to ask yourself is who caused the incident? It is imperative that you have been injured because of someone else’s error or negligence. It cannot be through your own fault. In order to win your case, you will need to show that an individual, public body or company is responsible for your injuries, so this is really important.
The next thing you need to do is determine when the incident happened. This is vital because there is actually a three-year time limit on nearly all personal injury cases. You will have three years from the date of the incident to make your claim. The only exceptions include those whereby you cannot pinpoint an incident date. After all, some injuries occur over time, such as vibration white finger and repetitive strain injury. In a case like this you will have three years from the date of the diagnosis instead. It is important to note that court proceedings must be issued within this time frame.
Last but not least, the final determining factor is whether you saw a medical professional for your injuries. No matter how minor your injury may be, it is vital to see a doctor, as the medical report is one of the most crucial pieces of evidence. Without it you are going to really struggle to make a negligence claim in Three Rivers.
