Finding a personal injury solicitor in Headley can be a challenge, but in truth it’s a lot like any other challenge in life – as long as you know a few basic things you should be fine. Here’s our guide to the key things you should know before you make a claim.
When you can and can’t make a claim
Here in the UK there are clear and simple rules about when you can and can’t claim. You can make a claim if you have been hurt in an accident as a result of someone else’s mistake.
The accident must have happened within the last three years unless you are under 18, in which case you must make a claim within three years of your 18th birthday.
The injury must also be severe enough to have impacted on your life to some degree. In other words, the injury will have reduced your mobility or forced you off work. It could also be a long term health problem contracted as a result of prolonged exposure to poor conditions in the work place.
How to make a claim
There are many ways in which you can make a claim. The easiest is to contact Accident Advice Helpline. Our trained experts are available all day and every day to provide the help and assistance you need to make a claim.
We’ll tell you whether or not you have a good case and if so, what you can do to improve your chances of winning.
Much of this will be down to getting evidence. To win your case you will need to prove your version of events to the full satisfaction of the court. This means you’ll need the evidence on your side and things such as witness statements and photos of the scene can be invaluable in helping you to back up your case and get the result you’re looking for.
You may no need to go to court
In most cases the other side will admit defeat and offer to settle out of court, which you might think is good news. However, the chances are they will start with a low offer so it’s important that you get good advice from your legal team about whether or not that offer is realistic.
