As idyllic as Torquay often is, accidents can happen. If you’ve been the victim of an injury that was not your fault, you’ll need to know that you have someone on your side who is fighting your corner. In this article, we’ll look at what your rights are, and the best way to find solicitors in Torquay who can help you make a claim.
About your injury
At Accident Advice Helpline, we routinely deal with many different types of injuries that qualify for personal injury claims: there is everything from road traffic accidents and injuries in the street, to claims against a hospital for malpractice. Indeed, it matters somewhat less how the accident occurred, but more whether or not it complies with the following criteria.
Was the accident your fault?
Blame is the crucial element. You’ll need to illustrate to the full satisfaction of the court not only that the accident was not your fault, but also that it was the fault of the other side. Because you’re the one bringing the claim, the onus will be on you to prove your case – it’s the basic effect of ‘innocent until proven guilty.’
How bad was the injury?
If you did not require medical assistance as a result of your injury, then the chances are that we will not be able to help you out. In order to win your case, you will have to be able to demonstrate clearly to the court that the injury has had an impact on your life.
When did it happen?
In order to qualify, your accident must have happened within the last three years. Anything longer ago than that will not be eligible, no matter how good you think your case might be.
