As one of the busier towns in the UK, the roads in and around Biggleswade are known for being pretty packed, so it is perhaps inevitable that there are accidents from time to time. However, if that happens to you, what are your rights, and what should you do to find a personal injury lawyer in Biggleswade who can help you out?
Road traffic accidents
Traffic accidents are one of the more specialised areas of personal injury law, which is why we’ve got a section dedicated to it on our website. It’s not that the basic rules governing when you can or can’t make a claim are any different, it’s more that determining who was at fault can sometimes be quite a challenge. As such, claims rely on evidence.
The first thing to do is to work out who was at fault. When two cars come together, the accident is over in a flash and it’s not always possible to be certain one way or another. However, it is rare when someone has a shunt and instantly accepts responsibility. We all like to think that the accident was down to someone else, and we’ll look at what happened from our own perspective.
When there is dispute in the case, it will be down to the courts to determine who was at fault. Sometimes this will become fairly apparent, and one side will seek to settle before the case even gets to court. But if that doesn’t happen, then the evidence will be vital.
If you really are confident about your case, then you want there to be as much information about what happened as possible. There could be video footage of the accident on CCTV, and you should also take photographs. If there was anyone there who saw the accident take place, then their testimony could prove important; get hold of their contact details and pass these onto your legal team. They will contact them at the appropriate time.
If the evidence points in your favour, then the chances are that you will win.
