Personal accident claims in Montrose can be bewildering
Everyone’s heard about personal injury compensation – large companies like ourselves advertise a lot on TV and in the press. However, many people still aren’t sure exactly what making a claim entails. Here are some crucial pieces of advice and information on making a claim.
Deadline to claim – in most cases, there is a three-year deadline from the date of the accident (or the date you first became aware that your injury was a result of the accident) for you to make your claim. While there are some exceptions to this that we can advise you on, it’s worthwhile using this as the standard, so make sure you start your claim as soon as you can.
Someone else’s fault – it’s fundamental to personal accident claims in Montrose that the accident wasn’t your fault. In order for you to qualify for compensation, you have to be able to prove that someone else caused the accident, as it will be their insurance that pays out in most cases. Rarely, a court can find you partly responsible and reduce your award as a result, but in most cases, you’ll be showing that another party was entirely at fault.
Be represented – while you are entitled to represent yourself in personal accident claims in Montrose, personal injury law can be complex. It’s a good idea to get top-class representation from someone you can trust. Accident Advice Helpline can connect you with one of the experienced, specialist lawyers we work in partnership with around the country. They all work on a no-win, no-fee* basis, so there’s no upfront cost to start a claim.
Use evidence – in order to prove that someone else was responsible, you’ll usually have to provide evidence. This can be witness statements, your own statement of events, a police crime report, photographs from the scene, and many others. Our advisors and your lawyer will be able to guide you through what you’ll need to provide to put your best case forward.
