Being in a car accident can be an experience you will never forget. For many people a slight bump isn’t enough to put them off driving but simply an inconvenience in their day. However, if you are involved in a more serious accident where your vehicle is written off or you are put in hospital then car accident claims in Sheffield may be at the forefront of your mind.
Road accident claims in Sheffield and gathering evidence
If your injuries from the accident see you taken to hospital straight from the scene it is more than likely you will be unable to retrieve any evidence from the scene of the accident.
However, when emergency services get involved they are likely to take photographs of their own as well as having statements from anyone at the scene who is able to talk.
When you’ve contacted your desired solicitor, who’s experienced in road accident claims in Sheffield, for your compensation case they will have the power to retrieve evidence collected by the emergency services to then begin compiling your case for compensation. The solicitor will also speak to you about what happened to help fill in any gaps in the available information.
The process of making a claim
Once your solicitor has spoken to you and retrieved all the evidence available, the next steps are to begin the negotiations with the other party. Road accident claims in Sheffield include a lot of movement between the involved parties, which involve the discussions of responsibility of the accident and the amount of compensation to be awarded at the close of the case.Open Claim Calculator
In many circumstances the case will be solved without the use of a court room, however this is not possible in all compensation cases. Depending on how the defence reacts to the claims being made the case may be passed on to the judge to make a final decision. At this point your solicitor will be at your side the whole time and present the case on your behalf.
