Questions to ask before making a personal injury accident claim in Surrey Heath
If you have been in an accident, you could be thinking about making a claim for compensation.
Whether it happened at work, in a public place or on the roads, if you were not at fault, you deserve to be compensated. Even minor injuries can cause serious disruption to your daily life, and you could be left dealing with pain and discomfort as well. It is easier than you think to determine whether you could be entitled to make a claim – consider the answers to the follow three questions:
Did the accident happen within the past three years?
This is the legal timeframe in which you have to make a claim for your injuries. If you have been in an accident that occurred within the past three years, you can still make a claim, and in cases involving a minor this timeframe could potentially be extended.
Did someone else cause the accident?
Perhaps the most important thing to consider is who was responsible for the accident. In order to make a personal injury accident claim in Surrey Heath, you should be able to show that the negligence of another party caused your accident to occur. An example could be an employer not providing you with the necessary safety equipment, or an owner of a public establishment not cleaning up a wet floor.
Was medical care administered?
You should be able to prove that you did indeed sustain injuries, and to the extent you claim you did, and so proof of medical care may be required. In some cases, you may have to undergo a medical test to bring your case records up to date, but in other cases the records already provided may suffice.
