    Have you been hurt in a road accident in or around St Blazey Gate? If so, our guide will show you how you can make a claim and find the very best serious injury solicitors in St Blazey Gate for your requirements.

    When you can claim

    The principles of making a claim are fairly straightforward. You can only claim if an accident was not your fault and happened within the last three years.

    The extent of the injury will also be important in evaluating the extent or otherwise of any claim you might make. Compensation is calculated on the basis of how bad the injury is – for example whether there is any long lasting physical impairment which affects your quality of life – and how much it has cost you. Imagine for a moment you’re paying out for physiotherapy to repair any damage; any compensation sum will take this into account.

    Special things to consider

    While these points apply to all accidents, there are special considerations to bear in mind when dealing with road traffic accidents.

    The first is that all drivers should carry third party insurance which covers any damage they inflict on other road users. It is the insurance company that you will be claiming against, not the individual directly.

    The second thing to consider is the importance of evidence. Vehicle accidents are over in a flash and there is often plenty of disagreement about who was at fault. You should start by getting photographs of the accident at the time and also taking down the contact details of any witnesses at the scene as well as the names and numbers of any police officers present.

    You should not contact them yourself, but pass their details on to your lawyer who will do that in due course.

    If you received any medical treatment at the scene make a note of this as it could be important in establishing the extent of any injuries.
