There is no point in going through the claims process if you aren’t going to win at the end of it, so you want to be sure that you have a good case for successful road accident claims in Plymouth after you have had a serious road accident, and also that you have all of the tools that you need in order to ensure that your claim is successful.
The claims process doesn’t have to be long and complicated, if you go through the right channels, so here are some of the rules for making your claim.
Get lots of evidence
Don’t leave it up to your lawyer to gather evidence and prove that you were not at fault in your accident. It is down to you to help get all of the evidence that you can to prove that your accident was caused by the negligence of another person. You can begin at the scene, by taking photographs and speaking to witnesses, as well as gathering personal details. The more you work towards getting evidence, the faster your claim will progress.
If your lawyer is constantly speaking to you about how the claim is progressing then they can’t be actually working on your claim. You are better off being patient and trusting that your lawyer is working for you to get you the compensation that you want. If your lawyer is working on a 100% no win no fee basis then you can be sure that they will want to work hard for you anyway.
Be prepared to take a reasonable settlement
Don’t try to claim millions of pounds for a broken arm as this is just not going to happen. Be reasonable and be prepared to take a smaller settlement if it means getting the case settled quickly and easily without having to pay court fees.
