Could you claim road traffic accident compensation in Essex?
If you’ve been hurt whilst on the road, you may be wondering whether or not you will be able to make a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Essex. If the incident wasn’t your fault and it was caused by someone or something else, there’s a good chance that you’ll be considered eligible to make a claim.
However, you will need to have received some form of medical help in order to obtain compensation. This doesn’t mean that you need to have sustained very serious injuries in order to make a claim, just that you must have received medical treatment of some kind.
You’ll also need to make your claim in a timely manner if you want to obtain compensation. In most cases, claimants only have three years in which to make a claim so it’s important not to leave it too late or you could risk missing out on your chance to obtain compensation.
If you were driving at the time of the incident, this won’t prevent you from obtaining compensation. However, you may need evidence to support your claim. Often, this evidence comes in the form of witness statements, police reports, accident investigations and, even, CCTV footage.
If you already have evidence relating to the incident, it’s important that you let your personal injury solicitor know so that it can be used. However, if you have yet to obtain any evidence which proves you weren’t responsible for the incident, there’s no need to panic.
We can often help claimants to obtain evidence which relates to their claim so you could still obtain compensation for your injuries.
Can you make a claim from anywhere?
Certainly. Although you may need to claim road traffic accident compensation in Essex, this doesn’t mean that you have to live locally. If you were simply visiting the area when the incident happened, you could still obtain compensation.
At Accident Advice Helpline we regularly work with claimants from all over the United Kingdom so your location doesn’t have to prevent you from obtaining compensation at all.
