After a serious road accident which you feel was the fault of another person, it may be useful for you to work out whether or not you can make road accident claims in Coventry. A compensation claim can help you to pay for everything from medical bills to loss of earnings, giving you the time and money you need to recover fully from your accident.
But before you go into the process of making a compensation claim you need to find out whether or not you are actually able to make a claim. Here are some ways for you to find out.
Look at the police report
If the third party in this accident has been arrested or charged with something as a result of the accident, it is almost certain that you will be able to make a claim against them. They will not be able to argue that they were not at fault if they have already been prosecuted for the accident.
See what evidence you have
You can take photographs, speak to witnesses and look at CCTV to work out how much evidence you have against the other party. If you have enough to prove that they were at fault for your accident and you were not, you should be able to move forward with a claim.
Speak to a solicitor
The easiest way to find out whether or not you have a good case for compensation is to speak to a solicitor about it. They will be able to go through the details of the claim with you, and the evidence that you have, and tell you whether or not they feel that it is worth you pushing forward with a claim.
