If you have been hurt in a non fault accident in Stroud, you may believe that you will be able to hold the responsible party accountable for the conditions that caused the accident.
However, in order to have a successful claim for personal injury compensation, you must prove that the responsible party was negligent in some way. You can consider them negligent if you can prove that they were aware of a defect or danger in the area where you were injured and failed to address the situation by either removing the hazard or alerting you to its presence.
Was your injury the result of a non fault accident in Stroud?
Once you have established negligence, you will need to determine causation – you must demonstrate that the negligent conduct of the responsible party triggered your injury and/or financial losses. If you cannot connect these with the negligent conduct, you will not be able to recover personal injury compensation.
Do your losses qualify you to make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline?
The final stage of your claim involves proving that the negligent conduct of the responsible party caused you to suffer pain and/or financial losses. If you were in a car accident and you did not suffer an injury or lose any money, you will be unable to recover personal injury compensation.
When did your accident occur?
If you can prove all of the three elements — negligence, causation and damages – you will have grounds to pursue personal injury compensation. However, you will only be able to proceed with your claim if you file it within three years of the date of your accident.
If you do not file your claim within this time, you may forfeit your right to compensation. Therefore, the sooner you contact a lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline, the easier it will be for you to prove your claim and receive personal injury compensation from the responsible party.
