Have you been involved in an accident on the road? If so, you may be wondering whether you are entitled to any compensation. We have put together an introductory guide to Sutton road traffic accidents and claims. So, keep on reading to discover more.
Sutton road traffic accidents and claims
The first thing you need to do is determine whether it is worth making a compensation claim. Of course, you don’t want to miss out on any money you could be entitled to, but at the same time you certainly don’t want to waste your time and cash if your case is too weak.
The first things you need to ask yourself to determine whether you should proceed with your claim are as follows:
- Who caused the accident?
- When did the incident occur?
- Did you see a doctor for your injuries?
To make a claim, you will need to prove that someone else caused the accident and consequently, that they are responsible for your injuries. Aside from this, the incident must have occurred within the past three years, as this is the time limit on all personal injury cases. You must have also seen a medical professional, as the report they provide you with is used to determine how much compensation you will get and it serves as proof of the injuries you have sustained.
