Have you been injured whilst travelling to work?
Although road traffic accidents can occur at any time, the traffic which occurs during rush hours can mean that people are more at risk of an accident occurring. As people are often rushing to get to work on time in the mornings, they can make potentially dangerous decisions whilst driving.
For example, if they try to overtake another driver or they drive through a red light to try and beat the traffic, there is a chance that a collision could occur. Similarly, if a pedestrian tries to cross the road at a dangerous or busy spot, they could cause an accident.
Could you claim road traffic accident compensation in Solihull?
If you’ve been hurt or injured on the road, you may be able to obtain compensation by making a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Solihull. However, in order to be awarded compensation you will need to be able to show that you weren’t responsible for the incident.
If another driver accidentally caused an incident to occur, they will be held liable for it and you should be able to obtain compensation from them. However, you will need to have received medical treatment for your injuries before you’re able to make a claim.
When should you take legal action?
When an accident occurs, some people are keen to make a compensation claim as soon as possible. Often, this is helpful because the incident is still fresh in their memory so they are able to recall it more easily. Also, the quicker you make your claim, the sooner you could be receiving compensation.
However, many claimants don’t feel able to make a claim straightaway. If you’ve been seriously hurt or if you’re in shock, you may want to wait a while before you take legal action. Although this shouldn’t prevent you from obtaining compensation, most claimants are required to make their claims within three years of the accident occurring.
If you wait any longer than this it’s unlikely that you would be able to obtain compensation so it’s important to act within this time limit.
