    South Hams personal injury claims


    The success of South Hams personal injury claims depends on many things. In this article we’ll provide the best guide going about how you can give yourself the best chance of a successful outcome.

    How to make South Hams personal injury claims

    There is a saying that you should only fight the battles you can win. So it’s important to accurately assess your chances of winning at the beginning of the process. You can do this yourself with a little research which will reveal the three basic rules about personal injury claims. You will be entitled to claim compensation if you have been injured at some point within the last three years, the accident was not your fault and you can show that the injury was bad enough to warrant medical treatment.

    Getting help

    However, it is also extremely important to get help which is why you should consult an expert. They will be in a great position to provide all the information you need when making a claim. They will let you know whether you have a good chance of winning and how you can go about improving your chances.

    Key to this is getting the evidence in order. When claims are uncertain law firms will have this, and only this to go on to help them decide on the merits of any personal injury claim. Things such as video footage showing the accident are great if you have them, but normally first hand accounts will be of the most value. This will help you decide for yourself whether or not making a claim is appropriate.

    Assessing your injuries

    People often focus only on providing their case which is a mistake. You also want to ensure you get the full amount of compensation to which you should be entitled. This is not always straightforward as medical assessments may overlook certain issues, so it’s often a good idea to have a second assessment so you’re absolutely clear on what should be counted in the claim.

    We often use this assessment to help us make an estimate about the probable scale of compensation you deserve. This may well only be an estimate, but it is something which you can use to set expectations against as you go forward with your claim. This is why our 30 second test is one of the most popular features on our website – people like to know what’s coming.
