Sedgemoor compensation

0

On the face of things, a personal injury claim should be straightforward – either the accident was your fault or it wasn’t; either you have been seriously hurt or not – but it’s surprising how things can very quickly become rather difficult, especially when you start thinking about where you are based. This article has specific advice for getting help with a Sedgemoor compensation claim.

Help with Sedgemoor compensation

The main complications actually come after you’ve decided to make a claim, and the first hurdle you’ll have to overcome will be proving your case.

Most personal injury claims take place in the small claims court. As the claimant in the case, the burden will be with you to prove that the defendant was at fault, rather than with them to do otherwise. Therefore, your case has to be watertight.

Before going to court, you’ll need to collect evidence. This often comes in the form of photographs of the scene or witness statements. Imagine for a moment that you have been involved in a road traffic accident. These are often over in a flash, and the only way of telling who was to blame for what can be to ask those who were at the scene. If possible, you should get hold of the contact details of anyone who was there and hand these over to your lawyer. They will contact them when the time comes.

Assessing compensation

The other tricky area comes in assessing the level of compensation which needs to be paid out. Under UK law, compensation settlements normally comprise two or three different calculations: the first is a figure for the injury itself, the second is how much you’ve spent, and the third is any money on which you’ve missed out as a result, which tends to include lost income through time off work.

When making this assessment, it can be a good idea to wait until you have completed your recovery. In a bid to receive the money as soon as possible, some people launch claims early and base any compensation settlement on what they expect their recovery period to be. The trouble is that this can be a little longer than expected. Imagine you predict recovery at being six months long, but in fact it takes eight months; that means there are two months during which you’re unable to work and lose more money. The compensation you’d have been awarded will be significantly below what you’d eventually need.
