If you’ve been injured in an accident which was someone else’s fault in Mid Devon you may be entitled to claim compensation. However, accurately assessing your case and getting the right help and support in your area is not always easy. Here’s our handy guide to help you stand up for your rights.
About your case
In order to qualify for compensation you will have to show that the accident happened at some point within the last three years; it was someone else’s fault and the injuries are bad enough to have had a negative impact on your life. In most cases this normally means something that has required medical attention.
If compensation is awarded it will be worked out by bringing together a number of different sums. The first is based on how badly you have been injured; the second is how much it has cost – such as through medical treatments and so on; the third is how much money you’ve lost out on – such as through lost wages.
You should keep careful note of everything you’ve spent because of your injuries. If you’re getting medical treatment which is not covered by the NHS you should get a quote for how much this has cost. The more information you have at your disposal, the better your chances of winning.

In order to secure compensation you will have to prove your case to the full satisfaction of the law courts. If you fall short of that the courts will have little option but to find in favour of the defendant. Get as much information about the circumstances of your accident as possible and pass this onto your law firm.
Don’t forget also to ensure every aspect of your injuries has been accounted for. Many people make the easy mistake of missing certain things – either because they are not comfortable sharing the information or because they do not know it is relevant.
When in doubt the secret is to share as much information as possible, even if you’re not sure it’s relevant. We can always tell you to disregard something, but we can’t help you take account of something if you don’t tell us what it is.
Making a claim
If we decide to take your case on, we will work closely with you to build the most effective case possible. This will be something that proves your version of events is correct and takes full account of all the injuries you’ve suffered.
