The busy roads around Ladbroke Grove create one of London’s hotspot areas for road traffic accidents. If you’re one of the hundreds of people who are involved in an accident in this area every year you are entitled to ask what your rights are and what kind of solicitor in Ladbroke Grove will give you the best chance of winning your case.
Knowing when to claim
Many people don’t stop and ask whether they are entitled to claim compensation for an accident for some time, but it is something you should look at as soon as possible. After an accident your insurance company and that of the other driver will start looking at what’s involved in sorting out the mess.
Often the only damage will be to egos and the cars, in which case, the insurance of the party judged to be at fault for the accident will have to make the payment. However, if there have been injuries then the insurance will have to pay out to cover those as well, and that’s when things can get difficult.
Who is to blame?
When there has been an accident the question of blame is always difficult to judge. That’s because the accident is often over in a flash and it’s not always easy to be certain who was at fault.
When there is significant disagreement over blame, the courts will have to decide whose story they find more convincing and that tends to come down to what the evidence has to say. If you’re confident about your case then you naturally want there to be as much evidence as possible to give you the best shot at making a good claim.
You should try to get hold of the contact details of any witnesses at the scene as well as the names and contact numbers of any police officers who attended the scene. You will not need to contact them yourself, but pass the details onto your lawyer who will then do the contacting for you.
Finding a solicitor in Ladbroke Grove
In order to improve your chances of winning your case, it’s a good idea to find a solicitor in Ladbroke Grove who has real experience in this type of case. This will improve the advice you receive throughout the process and will also enhance your chances in the end of getting a successful result.
Remember, in those cases where there is doubt the case can drag on for some time so it is a good idea to choose a law firm that has the financial resources to continue fighting a prolonged case and that means someone who has substantial resources.
However, no matter how good your case is there is no guarantee of winning which is why it’s nice to choose a lawyer who offers no win no fee. This means that if you do not win your case you will not have to pay anything at all.
