The rules surrounding personal injury law appear simple on the surface but it rarely works that way. Although any accident that was not your fault could count for compensation the truth is that it’s not what happened that counts, so much as what you can prove. If you live in Runnymede compensation could be more complicated than you might think.
The first thing you need to do is to find a lawyer, and for some people this means finding a local. Runnymede compensation claims require the services of a local – or at least so you might think. In fact you can get a better lawyer with specialist expertise in your type of area by contacting a firm such as Accident Advice Helpline. We’re one of the leading personal injury firms in the country and have lawyers based all over the country. The chances are we can find someone who lives in the area and would therefore be extremely suitable for a Runnymede compensation claim but what we find is most important is to find someone with the right skills.
You also don’t need to live near us to use our services. We have a free 24 hour helpline which, as the name suggests is open all day and night. You can call us at a time of your convenience and speak to one of our experts.
Here they will go over the basics of personal injury law with you and the details of your case. Most importantly they will be able to tell you if you have a realistic chance of winning.
In making this decision they will look at the information you have which supports your version of events. This can be anything from photos of the scene to witness statements. Either way it’s important that you present the courts with as much information as possible in order to give your case the best possible chance.
That’s because the onus of proof is on you as the claimant. If there is any doubt in the case it will go in the direction of the defendant.
You should also provide as much information as possible about the circumstances of your accident and the injuries you’ve received as a result. This will all be folded into your compensation claim at the end of it, so it’s a good idea to provide as much information as possible even if you do not know whether it’s relevant or not. The courts will decide whether they think it has value.
