Claiming compensation for a non fault accident in Thatcham
If you’ve ever made a personal injury compensation claim before, you’ll know that an essential element of making a successful claim is proving that you were hurt in what is called a non fault accident in Thatcham (or anywhere here in the UK).
In order to obtain compensation for any injury you’ve suffered, you’ll need to show that someone or something else was responsible. This is what is known as a non fault accident.
Take accidents in the workplace. If you’ve been hurt at work, you may be able to show that another employee, or the company as a whole, was responsible for your injuries. If you can do this, you should be able to obtain personal injury compensation for your non fault accident in Thatcham, providing you can meet the additional criteria for making a claim.
Did you receive medical treatment for the injury you sustained in your non fault accident in Thatcham?
If you have postponed your claim because you’re worried that your injuries aren’t serious enough to warrant legal action, we can help. You can actually make a claim for almost any type of injury sustained in a non fault accident in Thatcham but you will need to have received medical treatment for it before you’ll be considered eligible to claim personal injury.
If you were treated in hospital for example, you would obviously satisfy this requirement. Alternatively, if you saw your doctor or visited a medical clinic, this would also enable you to make a compensation claim. This is because your medical records will provide information regarding the treatment you received, so it should be easy for you to prove that you received medical help following the incident.
