In order to make a claim for compensation you have to be able to demonstrate that your accident, and the resulting injuries, were in fact someone elses fault in Plymouth. For some cases this can be a very simple process; however, for others it can be a little more complex.
No matter what situation you find yourself in it can be extremely advantageous to make sure that you have the help and support of a legal team behind you. They will then be able to guide you throughout the process and make sure that the necessary information and evidence is on hand to give you the best chance of making a successful claim as possible.
How to show your accident was someone elses fault in Plymouth
When you first speak to the team at Accident Advice Helpline we will talk through your accident with you so that we can be sure we understand what happened. We will want to know where the accident occurred, and who was involved. From this we can start to build a case.
If your accident was a road traffic accident then we will be looking to see if another road user was to blame. It could be that they were not driving properly, or not paying attention. They might have pulled out on you at a junction, or they might have been driving too close.
However, there is also a chance that other factors were to blame. You might have had an accident in some road works that might not have been signed properly or managed well. Your accident could have been caused as a result of a fault with your car, in which the mechanic who recently fixed your car was to blame.
These are all important things that we have to take in to consideration to ensure that your claim is made against the right person.
Of course your accident might have occurred in the workplace in which case we will need to discover whether the accident was your fault, or ultimately the responsibility of your employer. Employers have a legal duty of care to ensure that their staff are kept safe, and if they fail in this and people are hurt, then they will be held liable. This is when a claim can be made against them.
