Have you been hurt due to bad weather?
When the weather conditions are poor, people should adjust their actions accordingly. If you’re driving in heavy rain, for example, you may need to put your headlights on and slow down to avoid an accident occurring. When the weather is very bad and your visibility is reduced, it may be best to postpone your journey or to stop in a safe place until you feel confident enough to continue.
However, not all drivers do this. In some cases, people can take unnecessary risks when driving in bad weather and this can result in people getting hurt. For example, vehicles may be more likely to skid if the road surface is wet. If drivers are travelling too fast or if they don’t leave enough room between them and the vehicle in front, they could cause an accident to occur.
Could you make a claim with a personal injury lawyer in Corwen?
If you’ve been injured as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should be able to take action and you may want to ensure that the person responsible is held to account. By making a claim against them, you could ensure that they think about their actions more carefully in the future and this could prevent other people from getting hurt.
However, in order to be able to make a claim with a personal injury lawyer in Corwen, you will need to be able to show that you obtained medical help after the incident. If your medical records show that you received treatment at a hospital, clinic or doctor’s surgery, this should enable you to take legal action.
When is it best to make a compensation claim?
If you’re keen to obtain compensation as quickly as possible, you may want to contact a personal injury lawyer in Corwen soon after the accident has occurred. However, claimants normally have up to three years to take action after an accident has occurred so you shouldn’t have to rush into making your claim before you’re ready to do so.
