Personal injury lawyer in Billingshurst

If you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer in Billingshurst here are some important facts about making a claim that could come in handy.

The onus of proof is on you

Just as in criminal law the defendant is presumed innocent, it’s also the case in a personal injury law court. As the claimant you will need to show not only that the accident was not your fault but that it was down to an action or inaction from the defendant. This means you’ll have to be certain of your case and gather together as much evidence and documents as possible to prove the case. The more you have then the greater the chance of winning.

How compensation is calculated

Compensation is calculated by joining together three different numbers.

1. A figure for the injury itself. This will depend on the severity of the injury received. Something long lasting or permanent will naturally attract a higher figure than something which is relatively temporary.

2. Your expenses: If you’ve been injured then there is a good chance that you’ll have incurred expenses as a result. This could simply be travelling to and from the hospital or any medical treatment that you could not get on the NHS.

3. Loss of earnings: Often you’ll be forced off work and will have some or all of your regular pay cheque. This will depend on the contract you have with your employer. The courts will compensate you for any money you have lost or could lose in the future as a result of this accident.

Most cases don’t go to court

Now for a bit of good news. Many people dread the thought of having to appear in court, but the chances are it won’t happen. The other side will want to avoid the expense of a court case if possible so will probably offer a settlement. You’ll have to decide whether or not you want to accept.

Paying for your lawyer

There is no legal aid for personal injury cases so you will probably have to pay at some point in the process. However, if you work on the basis of no win no fee* then you will probably not have to pay unless you win the case.
