Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can provide you with a personal injury lawyer in Walsingham if you are looking to make a claim for compensation. On this page, we are going to take a little look at how to decide whether you can make a claim for compensation through our team here at Accident Advice Helpline or not.
Were you injured?
You can only claim compensation through a personal injury lawyer in Walsingham if you were actually injured. However, it is worth noting that the extent of your injuries do not matter all that much, as long as it was severe enough to need medical attention. What we are concerned about here at Accident Advice Helpline is that you were actually injured. In order to claim compensation through us, you will need to supply us with your medical report which outlines the extent of your injuries.
Who was to blame for the accident?
You can only claim compensation if somebody else is to blame for the incident. This means that you can’t claim compensation if you were the cause of your injuries. When you work with Accident Advice Helpline, we will help you to gather all of the evidence that you need in order to prove you were the innocent victim. Our main intention is to help you to prove, on the balance of probabilities, that somebody else was at fault for the incident.
Remember, this is all a question of negligence. It is not a question of whether a person acted in a deliberate manner or not. All negligence means is that a person acted in a manner that was not expected of them and was perhaps careless or reckless. We will help you to gather all of the evidence that you need to prove your case here.
When did the incident occur?
You can only claim compensation within three years of the date of the incident which led to your injuries, in most cases at least. There are a few exceptions to this rule. For example, if you were injured whilst you were a minor or if you are suffering from an industrial disease. However, in all cases we do urge you to make your claim for compensation as soon as possible. If you leave things too late here, there is a good chance you will not end up with the money you are entitled to.
