Do you need to claim road traffic accident compensation in Welwyn Hatfield?
Situated in the county of Hertfordshire, the borough of Welwyn Hatfield is home to over a hundred thousand people. With a significant population and plenty of visitors, the roads in and around the area can get very busy.
In the town of Hatfield alone, there are numerous attractions and facilities. People travel from all over the county to visit the indoor shopping centres, the multiplex cinema and the restaurants and bars. In addition to this, there are well-known theatres and music venues in the area.
Fortunately, there are good road and transport links to the area and this can make it easier for people to get to and from Hatfield. However, from time to time, accidents do occur and people can sustain injuries as a result.
If you’ve been hurt whilst on the road, you may want to consider making a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Welwyn Hatfield. If the incident was caused by another road user, you should be able to obtain compensation from them.
How can you prove that you weren’t at fault?
If you’re hoping to obtain compensation, you will need to show that you didn’t cause the incident in question. One of the easiest ways to do this is by obtaining witness statements. If other people saw the accident occur, they may be willing to provide a statement which could help to prove that you weren’t at fault.
Of course, you may find that the person who caused the incident is willing to accept liability straightaway which could make it easier for you to make a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Welwyn Hatfield.
What injuries did you sustain?
Although you can make a claim for almost any injury, you will need to have received medical treatment if you want to obtain compensation for the harm you’ve suffered. You may have required surgery after the incident or you may have simply been given a prescription for medication to help you deal with your injuries.
Whatever treatment you received should be listed on your medical notes so it should be easy to prove what injuries you suffered.
