If you have been involved in a car accident that was not your fault, there is absolutely no reason as to why you should suffer financially due to somebody else’s negligence. We here at Accident Advice Helpline want to help you claim the compensation that you deserve. You do, however, have to be aware that the guidelines for a successful compensation claim are pretty strict. Let us tell you whether you are eligible to make a successful road traffic accident claim in Abercynon.
When did the accident occur?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we will only be able to help you out if your car accident occurred within the last three years. It is advisable that you make the claim as soon as possible though. If you are able to do so at least. The earlier you make the claim, the stronger your case actually will be.
Was the accident the fault of another road user?
You can’t make a road traffic accident claim in Abercynon if you were the one that caused the accident. It therefore needs to be determined that the accident was the fault of another party. This could be, for instance, one of the following:
- The driver of another vehicle on the road.
- The driver of the vehicle that you were a passenger in.
- A driver on the road where you were a pedestrian.
- Somebody who made the road a more dangerous place to be. Perhaps a company that put up signs in the wrong place.
Determining who was negligent is absolutely crucial if you are going to make a claim. This is why it is important that you call the police to the scene of the accident. They will gather witness statements and make their own professional opinion with regards to what they believed happened. We at Accident Advice Helpline will need access to the police report and any evidence that you may have gathered yourself, in order to help you with your claim.
Did the accident result in an injury?
Accident Advice Helpline is a personal injury law firm. This means that we will be able to help you out if you suffered an injury in the car accident. This injury could be minor, it could be serious, it could be physical, it could be psychological. All that matters is that you suffered an injury. Before you call our helpline, you should have visited your doctor who will have prepared a medical report highlighting your injuries.
