Valid personal injury compensation claims in North Hertfordshire
What makes personal injury compensation claims in North Hertfordshire, or anywhere else while we are on the subject, valid? There are a certain set of criteria that need to be met before a claim can be considered ‘valid’, at least when it comes to lawyers and law firms working on a no win no fee basis.
These criteria are set out in the conditional fee agreement, otherwise known as no win no fee, which we and all of our lawyers work in accordance with. As criteria go, these ones are really simple and very straightforward:
- The accident can not have been the fault of the claimant
- Injured claimants must have received medical attention for injuries sustained in the accident they are claiming for
- No more than three years, except in certain circumstances, can have passed between accident and claim
As you can see, the conditions are nothing to be worried about and you probably meet them without even trying. This is done on purpose, so as to make it as easy as possible for accident victims to claim the compensation that they are legally entitled to. There a few other things that can be done too, in order to make things easier later, like gathering all paperwork together:
- Relevant receipts
- Bus and carpark tickets
- Estimated loss of earnings
Any costs incurred as a direct result of the injuries sustained in your accident should be recorded, and backed up with evidence where at all possible.
