Generally speaking there are three elements that need to be satisfied in order for you to make a claim for compensation. Firstly, you need to show who was responsible for your accident, secondly how you were injured and finally you need to show when the accident occurred.
Who was responsible for your accident?
It is important to know who was responsible for your accident as this is the person against whom any claim for compensation is ultimately going to be made. Admittedly there is a chance that you may not know who is legally responsible when you first contact us, and that is fine. Our advisers will do all they can to ensure that you are not responsible, and from there we can find out more and do some investigations to find out who is liable.
Even if you are partly responsible for your accident or the injuries you have sustained there is a chance that you will still be able to make a claim for compensation. All you need to be aware of is that if you were responsible in some way the level of compensation awarded is likely to be reduced.
How were you injured?
If you have been injured in, let’s say a public transport accident in Norwich for example, then there is every chance that you will need medical treatment. It could be that you have concussion, or maybe you have sustained cuts and lacerations. You might even have a broken bone.
The extent of your injuries will determine whether there is something to claim compensation for, as well as how much compensation you might actually be entitled to receive. You can take our 30 second test today to find out how much you could be due.
