Although no-one sets out to get hurt or suffer an injury, accidents can happen at any time. Whilst you might go out of your way to stay as safe as possible, you can’t predict how other people will act.
If you’ve been hurt because of someone else’s actions or negligence, you could be eligible to make a South Bucks compensation claim.
Should you take legal action?
If you were hurt fairly recently, you may not have given much thought to making a personal injury compensation claim. You may be focusing on recovering from your physical injuries or simply trying to deal with the aftermath of the accident.
In some cases, people can suffer from shock after being hurt and it may take weeks, or even months, for you to come to terms with what’s happened.
Although this is completely understandable, you may not want to put off making a South Bucks compensation claim.
Many claimants find that taking legal action soon after an accident is easier than waiting. It’s likely that you’ll be able to access evidence to support your claim more easily if you act quickly and you may also find that your compensation award is helpful whilst you’re recovering.
Making a South Bucks compensation claim
If you’re thinking of taking legal action, you’ll want to ensure that you’re eligible to make a claim. In order to obtain compensation after an accident, you’ll need to show that you weren’t responsible for your injuries and that you obtained medical treatment for the harm you suffered.
In most instances, you’ll also need to make your claim within the 3 year deadline. If you think you meet this criteria, it’s likely that you’ll be qualified to make a claim. If so, why not contact our personal injury team and find out more about taking action?
