Can you claim compensation from someone you know?
When people make a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Tewkesbury, they are often making a claim against a stranger or someone they’ve never met before. However, it is possible that someone you know could be involved in the incident.
If you live in the area and you were hurt whilst driving on local roads, it wouldn’t be surprising if you happened to know the person who caused the incident. However, this shouldn’t prevent you from obtaining compensation from them and it shouldn’t put you off making a claim.
Although some people feel a little awkward about making a claim against someone they know, you really shouldn’t. In the vast majority of cases, people realise that making a claim is simply a legal formality to enable you to obtain compensation for your injuries and most people’s insurance policies will cover the cost, so you needn’t worry about them being out of pocket.
You wouldn’t think twice about making a car insurance claim for damage done to your vehicle, so why not make a claim for any injuries you’ve sustained?
When to make your claim for road traffic accident compensation in Tewkesbury
When road traffic accidents occur, people can be very traumatised by the incident and they may not feel ready to take legal action straightaway. However, making a claim soon after the accident might be easier and it could mean that you receive your compensation more quickly.
Of course, if you would prefer to wait a little while to make your claim, this shouldn’t prevent you from obtaining the compensation you deserve. However, you should be aware that most claimants only have three years in which to make a claim after an accident has occurred so you won’t want to wait too long or you could miss out.
