North East Derbyshire accident claim solicitors
Road traffic accidents normally occur when one or both of the drivers have made a mistake. It may be a minor error and the injuries sustained may not exactly be life threatening. However even when blame is minimal there may be scope for a claim. That’s because compensation for damage or injury is paid out by the insurance policy of the party considered to be responsible for the crash.
Getting in touch
Even if you’re not sure whose fault the accident was it’s a good idea to get in touch with an expert, which is something you can do at Accident Advice Helpline. Our 24 hour helpline should give you ample opportunity to speak to one of our experts who will tell you one way or the other whether they think you have a good chance of winning your case. As part of this assessment, we will look at the severity of the injuries you have sustained and what the evidence tells us.
To back up your case it’s a good idea to be fully aware of how badly you have been hurt. Initial medical treatments can miss all sorts of issues so it’s a good idea to get a second opinion as this will provide a more rounded view point. Also, remember to think about any psychological problems you may be experiencing. These often go overlooked, but can be as important as any physical issues you might have.
Exceptions to the rule
There are a number of complications that can arise in the case. If you’re considered to be partially responsible for the accident then this might affect how much compensation you might be awarded. Equally if the other driver has no third party insurance then this could affect your chances of receiving compensation.
