    Solicitors in Tintern


    At Accident Advice Helpline we deal with many different types of claim during our day to day activities, but in this article we’ll look at one of the most common; those injuries which are caused by drivers every day. Here we’ll tell you what your rights are and how you can go about finding solicitors in Tintern who can help with that type of claim.

    Accidents in the street

    Whether you’re a pedestrian who has been injured by a driver or were in an accident which was caused by someone else, there are things you can do to get redress. The law states that if you were injured by someone else’s carelessness then you will be entitled to claim compensation.

    Where the difficulty comes in is in proving that blame exists and that is not always entirely straightforward. Accidents such as these tend to be over in an instant and it’s not always possible to be certain what happened. It’s one of those occasions where there are always at least three sides to the story: yours, the other driver’s and the truth.

    Few people like to admit they were at fault for an accident at the best of times, but when there is money involved it tends to be even more difficult to get someone to admit responsibility. For this reason proving your case here is even more important than in other types of claims.

    What evidence is there

    You should look at what evidence you can find which provides independent back up to your version of events. One of these could be in the form of witnesses at the scene. It is not always guaranteed that you’ll have the presence of mind to take down the names of everyone who was at the scene, but this is a good idea if you can manage it as their testimonies could be important in helping you to support your case.

    Equally, if you can get hold of the names and numbers of any police officers or ambulance crew who attended the scene this will be useful. They are not only independent, but they are highly experienced and their opinion about who was at fault will be important in determining the outcome of the case.

    Finding solicitors in Tintern

    Once you have your evidence it’s time to find solicitors in Tintern who can assist you in building a strong case. The best way to do this is to find people who have a background in road traffic accidents. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a team of people who can locate lawyers with this type of experience and get you started on the road to getting the compensation you deserve.
