Make a personal injury accident claim in Vale of White Horse
There are three factors that underpin any claim for personal injury compensation:
- The accident must not have been your fault – compensation claims are made when the victim has been hurt through no fault of their own. There are a variety of circumstances, from road traffic collisions through to more complex cases, such as those affected by industrial disease. If you are unsure about this, call us as we can help. We will assess your case promptly and honestly to see if you have a case.
- The accident must have been within the last three years – in order for your claim to be in with a chance of success, you must lodge your complaint within three years of it being a reasonable assumption that you were hurt as a result of the accident or incident. In may cases, there is a date and time that is clear, such as the date you had the accident. In the cases of industrial diseases, many clients do not realise they are ill and that their working conditions caused this, until many, many years later.
- Your injuries – as you are claiming for injuries, you will need to provide evidence that you have sought medical advice and treatment. This will form part of your claim, which is why it is important to seek medical help if you have been hurt.
