Could you claim road traffic accident compensation in Buckinghamshire?
Although Buckinghamshire isn’t the closest county to London, it still makes an ideal location for people who want to live in the country but work in the City. Indeed, train routes from Buckinghamshire to London can take as little as thirty minutes which makes it an ideal commuter location.
Whilst many people do rely on public transport to get to and from work, a significant number of people prefer to use their own vehicles. With good road links in and around Buckinghamshire, it’s possible to get around quickly and easily, most of the time.
As with any area, accidents can sometimes occur in the county. If you’re affected by an incident, you may want to consider claiming road traffic accident compensation in Buckinghamshire. However, you will only be able to do so if you can show that you weren’t at fault and that you didn’t cause or contribute to the accident.
What evidence do you need?
In order to successfully obtain compensation, you’ll need to prove that someone else caused your injuries. There are various ways to do this and any evidence you have could come in useful. If you took photographs at the scene of the incident, for example, they could highlight how the incident occurred and who was responsible for it.
Similarly, if you obtained a police report after the incident, this could contain information about the cause of the incident. You may even find that the incident has been caught on a CCTV camera which could make the claims process fairly easy.
If you don’t currently have any evidence relating to the accident but you know you weren’t at fault, there’s no need to panic. We can often help claimants access the evidence they need so you could still be eligible to obtain compensation for your injuries.
When should you make your claim?
If you would prefer to wait until you have begun to recover from your injuries to make a claim, you should be able to do so. However, you may need to act efficiently if you want to ensure that you obtain the compensation you deserve.
Generally, claimants only have three years after an accident to make a claim. If you wait too long you could miss out on your chance to make a claim altogether.
