Do you need to make a claim for personal injury and suffering?
After an accident or injury, many people want to make a compensation claim for personal injury and suffering. Although you can often make a claim for personal injury and suffering following a variety of incidents, claims commonly arise following a road traffic accident or collision.
Despite efforts to make cars, motorbikes and other vehicles safer, road traffic accidents and crashes can often lead to very serious injuries, or even fatalities. In a bid to avoid such incidents, changes have been made to driving assessments but, of course, some accidents and incidents will still occur.
If you’ve been hurt in a road traffic accident and you’re confident that it wasn’t your fault, you may find that you’re able to make a claim for personal injury and suffering. In many instances it can be relatively easy to prove who was responsible for such an incident so it’s likely that you, and your personal injury lawyers, will be able to identify who was at fault and who is liable to pay you compensation for personal injury and suffering.
Although many people want to make a claim for personal injury and suffering as soon as they can following an injury, some people may find that they are unable to cope with making a claim straightaway. In some cases, the emotional impact of the incident can put people off making a claim as they don’t want to have to relive the collision.
However, if you were hurt some time ago and only now feel ready to make a claim for personal injury and suffering, it may not be too late. Often, people who have been injured within the last three years are able to go on to make a successful claim for personal injury and suffering, providing they can show the incident wasn’t their fault.
