Need help with personal injury compensation claims in South Yorkshire?
If you live in South Yorkshire and have been injured in an accident, you may be wondering if you can make a personal injury compensation claim. Maybe you don’t know how to begin the claims process and have been thinking about it for some time. If you need help with personal injury compensation claims in South Yorkshire, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
What you must prove to make a claim for injuries
To begin with, the most important points that you have to be able to prove are that you did not cause the accident and that another person did, either because of their negligence or recklessness.
Our in-house lawyers will be able to help you prove these two things.
You will also have to demonstrate that you had medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you could possibly have done after your accident. Your medical records will prove that you did. They will also be needed to assess the amount of compensation you could be awarded for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries. If you have suffered loss of amenity (you are unable to pursue a sport or hobby you enjoyed doing before your accident) you may also be compensated for this loss.
If the police were summoned to the scene of your accident, for example, if you were injured in a road traffic accident, they will have investigated its causes. On completion of their investigations they compile an accident report. It will be necessary to produce a copy of this report when you make your claim. It should prove that you were not to blame for your accident and lay the blame on someone else.
How long do I have to make my claim?
If your accident occurred in the UK, you normally have three years from its date to file a claim for personal injuries. This is not always the case, however. There are some accidents and their resulting injuries which must be claimed for within a much shorter period of time.
Fine out precisely how long you have to file your potential claim by contacting us at Accident Advice Helpline.
