When someone is injured in an accident their life can be turned upside down. It may be a severe injury resulting in permanent health issues, or it could be something which only lasts for a finite period of time. Either way, it may well be that compensation is deemed appropriate. This article will help you understand more about what you can and can’t claim and how you can find no win no fee lawyers in Trafford with the skills and experience required to help you out.
What you can claim for
The most common types of claims are things such as road traffic accidents, injuries in the workplace and slip, trips and falls, which is why you can see separate sections dedicated especially to these types of claims. However any accident can qualify for compensation as long as you can demonstrate the accident was not your fault and that the injury has had an impact on your quality of life. If you can’t illustrate this, then sadly you will not be able to make a claim.
Going to court
The good news is that in most cases you will not have to go to court as the other side may well settle before it gets that far. If that’s what happens then it will be up to you to decide whether or not you want to claim or if you’re happy to cash out there and then.
Be warned, the chances are that the other side will want to limit the damage so their first settlement offer may well be substantially lower than the amount that you could claim if you were to go to court.
This is why it’s such a good idea to make sure that you have a full assessment of how much you can claim such as the one we’ll provide through our 30 second test. Although this only offers a basic guide, you can use this to guide you in making these kinds of decisions.
However, if you do go to court, you will have to prove your case. As in other law courts, the burden of proof lies with you as the claimant, and if you can’t prove your case then the court will have little option except to side with the defendant.
