How to find out more about solicitors in Arundel
If you have had an accident in the past three years and it was not your fault, you may be considering making a personal injury compensation claim in Arundel. Depending on the type of accident you were injured in, you may, or may not, be lucky in your search for solicitors in Arundel. If you can’t find appropriate solicitors to help you with your personal injury compensation claim, you should contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
In fact you might as well contact us first, as you don’t really need local solicitors such as solicitors in Arundel if you want to claim personal injury compensation.
How long have I got to claim?
You don’t have an infinite amount of time in which to make a personal injury compensation claim. Each accident has a limitation period within which claims must be made. For accidents that happened in this country, the limitation period is usually three years from the date of the accident. Having said that, there are some accidents and injuries that must be claimed for within a shorter time frame.
If you have an accident at sea, in the air, or at an airport in a country which is a signatory to the Montreal Convention, you only have two years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim.
You should find out from us, at Accident Advice Helpline, precisely how long you have in which to file your particular claim. You may not have as long as you think.
What do I have to prove to make a claim?
There are three main criteria that you must satisfy if you are to claim for your injuries.
- You must prove that you were not responsible for your accident.
- You also have to prove that someone else, or an organisation was to blame for your accident.
- You have to prove that you received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you could after your accident.
You can prove the third point on production of your medical records and doctor’s report. If your claim is successful, these will be required to work out how much compensation you should be awarded.
If the police were present at your accident scene, their accident report should serve to prove that your accident was not your fault.
