Should you make a claim?
When people have been hurt in an accident, they may have an opportunity of claiming compensation for their injuries.
Some people decide this not for them, and other people do go on to claim compensation. However, there seems to be a void; studies suggest that as many as seven in ten people who could claim compensation do not do so and this may be because they are unsure or unaware that they have a claim.
How do you know if you have been injured in a public transport accident in Mendip, if you have a claim or not? The likelihood is that you will have many questions but finding the answers can prove tricky. Take a look at this quick ‘question and answer’ guide to have an idea if you have a claim.
Commonly asked questions
I have been injured in a public transport accident in Mendip but do my injuries ‘count’?
Some clients worry that their injuries are either not significant enough or are the wrong kind to claim compensation.
Injuries for which anyone intends to claim compensation need to have symptoms, such as a deep cut that needed stitches, concussion that needed a day or two in hospital, broken bones that needed plaster casts and so on. There are also a whole range of emotional impacts that people can suffer after a trauma and these too can be included as part of your claim.
Do I need to see a doctor?
It is fair to say that the majority of clients that we work with have already consulted a doctor, either their own or at a local hospital, regarding their injuries. Some people however, do need to have their injuries diagnosed and assessed by a doctor and we can help to facilitate this.
