If you have been injured in a public transport accident in Oadby and Wigston, you may be wondering whether you can claim compensation for your injuries. Accident Advice Helpline’s professional advisors can help you decide whether you have a legitimate claim, and answer all your questions.
Eligibility requirements for making a personal injury claim
Three conditions should be met before you are able to start a claim:
- The accident must have happened three years before your claim commences
- You must not have been to blame for the incident
- Medical treatment must have been received for your injuries
Whether you are to blame for an accident is not always clear-cut, but in the case of a public transport accident in Oadby and Wigston, or other accidents of a similar nature around the UK, the claim is often made against either the driver of the vehicle or the transport company.
A negligent third party
All personal injury claims must be made against a negligent third party who has been found at fault for your accident. The task of proving their negligence falls to your no win no fee solicitor, who will build a case using evidence potentially including police reports and witness statements.
Your solicitor will negotiate on your behalf with the third party’s legal representative, also using the medical assessment of your injuries from the accident as a crucial piece of evidence. We endeavour to process claims over the phone whenever possible, so that our customers do not need to go to court.
Once the case is underway, you should be able to sit back and relax in the knowledge that your claim is in safe hands. Our specialist solicitors have plenty of experience in dealing with this type of claim, and aim to achieve the best result for everyone.
