First steps to making a non fault accident claim in Gedling
You may be aware that if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault you have the legal right to make a non fault accident claim in Gedling. However, you may still feel daunted by the prospect of making what is ultimately a legal claim.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have extensive experience of handling personal injury claims, and therefore have the necessary knowledge to be able to make your claim go as smoothly as possible. This is why we have put together the following information to help you get your claim started.
One of the first things you ought to do when considering whether or not to make a non fault accident claim in Gedling is find out if you are legally eligible to do so.
The easiest way for you to do this is to take our 30 second test, which you will find on our website. All you need to do is answer some basic questions about your accident and the injuries you have sustained. We will then be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not we can help you seek compensation.
As well as this we can also give you a good indication as to how much compensation you might actually be entitled to. Figures quoted will just be an initial guideline; however, your solicitor will be able to give you a better indication as your claim progresses.
An essential part of your claim, and one of the biggest determinants when it comes to your compensation settlement relates to the injuries you have sustained. The best way to prove such injuries is via your medical records. Our solicitors will arrange for your records to be obtained, and we will also instruct an independent medical expert to write a report outlining the injuries you sustained and the impact these have had on you.
If your injury was recent then it can be useful to obtain photographs of any physical injuries you have sustained.
