Serious injury claim for compensation
You may have suffered a personal injury that has not been your fault, but have done nothing about it. Friends and relatives may have been suggesting that you seek legal advice for your serious injury claim for compensation.
Serious injury claim for compensation – What to Do?
First of all you need to find a solicitor who has a good track record of winning compensation for clients with personal injury claims. You have to find one who is a specialist in this area if you want to win your case. Don’t simply choose the solicitor who handled the conveyancing for you when you bought your house; he or she may have absolutely no experience in dealing with personal injury cases.
You should also be able to provide reliable witnesses to the accident in which you sustained your injury. The sooner after the accident you claim the better and not just to get that phrase injury claim out of your head, but also because there is a limitation period of three years. This means that you can claim for an injury or a work-related health problem such as repetitive strain injury, within three years of the accident or of being diagnosed with a health problem caused by your working environment.
You will need to show that you sought medical help immediately after an accident or you went to a doctor because of your symptoms in the case of a work-related health problem. Sometimes a medical condition can worsen because medical treatment was not given soon after the accident or the onset of the illness. If that is the case, any personal injury claim will be weakened.
