For this reason, what you’ll find here is the dedicated page for anyone who is looking to find a personal injury lawyer in Bedfordshire. Read on to find out how you could make a claim.

    What the law says

    There are several clear guidelines on personal injury law in the UK. They say that if you are hurt in an accident which is not your fault then you should be paid compensation.

    However, the tricky bit comes when you try to prove it – and as the claimant, the burden of proof will be squarely on your shoulders.

    Step one: What you’ll have to do

    The majority of cases do not get all the way to court as the other side will most likely know they are in the wrong and will make a settlement offer rather than waste money in court. However, if it does go all the way then you will need to know what will be asked of you.

    As the claimant you will need to demonstrate these things before a personal injury lawyer in Bedfordshire can help:

    • That the accident was not your fault
    • That the defendant was therefore at fault
    • That the accident happened within the last three years
    • The injuries you suffered in the accident needed medical attention

    You have received an injury which has had a measurably negative affect on your life style. That effect could come in the form of reduced mobility or costs such as loss of earnings.

    Step two: Gathering evidence

    The key here is showing that the defendant – be that an organisation or individual – did something that contributed to the accident. It could be anything from a driver crashing into you, to an injury in the workplace or the council not repairing a broken paving stone.

    Either way you’ll need evidence, so take photos of the scene and gather the contact details of any witnesses you can find. If the case gets as far as the courts, their testimony will come in handy down the line.
