Unfortunately, road traffic accidents are fairly common and these can cause minor to serious injuries and sometimes, can even be fatal. If you have been injured in an accident, you may not instantly think about compensation, but this is definitely something to consider. Of course, there are only certain circumstances where you would be entitled to make a claim and if you are not quite sure, these are the questions to ask yourself.
Who caused the incident?
The only way you will be entitled to road traffic accident compensation in Crawley is if someone else was at fault. If you caused the accident, you will not be able to claim for compensation. However, if another driver or road user caused the accident to occur, you should be able to obtain compensation from them.
When did it happen?
Often, it’s best to claim road traffic accident compensation in Crawley as soon as possible. However, if you don’t feel up to making a compensation claim straightaway, there’s no need to rush.
In most cases, claimants have up to three years to make a claim after an accident so you could still have plenty of time to obtain compensation.
Do you have evidence to support your claim?
In order to make your claim for road traffic incident compensation in Crawley, you will need to have some evidence to back up your claim. Some useful pieces of evidence will include police reports of the incident, medical records with injuries sustained and witnesses to the scene. The more evidence you have, the higher the chance of a successful claim.
