There’s a saying in personal injury law that it’s not only what happened that counts, but what you can prove. This is the most important thing you can take into account when making a Shotton compensation claim.
Help with Shotton compensation
On the face of it, the concept of personal injury law appears very simple and abides by the common principle that where there is blame, there is a claim. But as so often in life, things are rarely that straightforward.
Because you are taking your claim to the law courts, the onus of proof lies with you as the claimant. You’ll have to demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that the defendant was at fault for the accident, and you’ll also have to show how seriously the accident has affected your quality of life. If you get this wrong, then your chances of making a claim will not be very good. While many of the cases with which we deal are settled early on without the need to go to court, in those instances where there is considerable debate the court will have to decide who they believe based on the evidence.
How we can help
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a 24-hour helpline service which you can use to find all the information you need about making a personal injury claim. This is a chance for you to decide whether or not you think you should be making a claim, and if so what you should do to improve your chances a little further.
Our experts will tell you if they think you have a good chance of winning, and if so what evidence they think you can gather to further demonstrate your case.
This will include things such as photographs of the scene and witness statements from those who were there – all of which is designed to help paint a realistic picture of the case.
We may also suggest a follow-up medical assessment to give us a clearer indication of whether or not we think you have a good case to make. This is important because the severity of your accident will have a major bearing on how much compensation you can claim when the time comes.
