    Personal injury claim in Yarm


    As whiplash is one of the more prevalent bases for personal injury claims in Yarm and the rest of the United Kingdom, most injury lawyers are familiar with this type injury. If you’ve experienced whiplash, or another injury, as a result of a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

    A personal injury claim in Yarm for whiplash

    When accidents occur, sometimes injuries are apparent immediately. If you’ve experienced a broken bone, for example, you may be in an extreme amount of pain and need urgent medical assistance.

    However, if your injuries aren’t visible, you may not realise how badly you’ve been hurt until some time after the accident. Whiplash, for example, can take hours or days to become apparent so you may not realise that you’ve suffered the injury straight away.

    Luckily, you will still be able to obtain compensation, providing you obtained medical treatment for the injury.

    The personal injury claim process

    Obtaining medical treatment is necessary if you want to obtain compensation after an accident. Whilst hospital treatment will, obviously, satisfy this requirement, you could make a claim if you were treated at a walk-in clinic or at your local surgery.

    Another important part of making a claim, it proving that you weren’t at fault. In order to make a successful personal injury claim in Yarm, you’ll need to show that someone else was reponsible for causing you harm.

    If they admit what they’ve done, obtaining compensation might be fairly straightforward. However, if they dispute your version of events, you may need to provide evidence, such as witness statements, video footage and your medical records.

    In addition to this, most claimants are required to adhere to a deadline when making a personal injury claim in Yarm. Generally, you’ll only have 3 years’ in which to take legal action after an accident so it’s important to act quickly.
