Guidelines for personal accident compensation claims in Staffordshire Moorlands
As with everything, there are guidelines in place. Our friendly advisors are trained to go through everything with you and tell you if you are eligible to make a claim. They will also discuss what you will need to provide, and also how much you might receive, but this will only be an estimate.
Who was at fault?
- The accident must have been caused by someone else. You will need to be able to prove that you were not to blame. This will mean you will have to make sure you keep all records relating to your accident.
- Keep any correspondence you receive from any insurance companies. Even if they don’t admit any fault, there may be something in those letters that our solicitors can use to establish blame.
- Take photographs of the scene of the accident. It’s impossible to take photographs before an accident happens, as you never know when they will happen, but take some afterwards. These can have vital information as they will show where objects or vehicles were and may even show exactly what happened.
- Get names and contact details of witnesses. In most cases there are witnesses to an accident, and they will usually want to tell someone exactly what they saw. Ask them if they are happy to be contacted if they are needed.
Any personal accident compensation claims in Staffordshire Moorlands must be made within three years from when the accident happened. There are very few exceptions to this, so don’t take any chances. Why not make your claim earlier? There’s no limit on how soon you can make a claim following the accident.
Making sure you receive the correct medical treatment is always important no matter what your injury is. More serious injuries, such as broken bones or head injuries, will be treated in hospital. But sprains, cuts and whiplash should always be assessed by a medical practitioner. You may need stitches, or prescription only painkillers. And of course they will tell you if you need to rest. As part of a claim you will need to show that you saw a doctor.
