When you’ve been in an accident it pays to get organised quickly and one of the first things you should be looking at is the possibility of compensation. This article will show you why it pays to start looking for a solicitor in Kingsclere at the earliest opportunity.
The simple answer to this revolves around what’s known as the three year rule. This is the amount of time that you can wait before making a claim. If you leave it any longer than that, from the date of the accident, you’ll find that you are no longer entitled to compensation.
That’s plenty of time – I hear you cry but is it in reality? Many people spend their time concentrating on other things when they’ve been injured such as their treatment and adjusting to a new routine. As such, they can let the question of compensation slide.
Others make the basic mistake of not even looking into the issue. We often hear our clients saying that they hadn’t even looked to see if they were entitled to make a claim until a friend pointed out the option for them.
What you’re entitled to
So it pays to start looking into the issue. It doesn’t hurt to do some research – if it turns out that you are not entitled to make a claim then the chances are you’ll find out relatively quickly because the guidelines are pretty easy to follow. Put simply, you’ll be looking at these very simple questions. As well as the three year rule, you’ll have to show that the accident was not your fault and that it was someone else’s fault. Equally, you’ll need to show that the injury is bad enough to warrant compensation.
