What you must prove to make a claim
First and foremost, to file any personal injury compensation claims in Southend-on-Sea, you have to be in a position to prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault. You also have to prove that it was the fault of another person’s negligence.
After any accident in which you are injured, you must have medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you can. Failure to do this might mean that your claim is jeopardised.
Your medical records are needed when you make a claim, as they form the basis for calculations of how much compensation you might get for your pain, distress and suffering. They will also prove that you had medical treatment as soon as you possibly could after your accident.
If the police were summoned to the accident scene, you should have a copy of their accident report. This should prove that another person and not you, was responsible for your accident.
How much compensation might I get?
We just can’t say with any accuracy how much you might be awarded in compensation if your claim is successful. There are too many factors to be taken into consideration to arrive at a precise figure. All accidents and their injuries and circumstances are unique. Generally, the more severe your injuries, the more you receive in compensation.
