Perhaps you are recovering from injuries sustained in a road traffic accident and are considering making a Tameside vehicle collision claim. You may not know how to begin the process of making a claim, and if that is so, call us at Accident Advice Helpline for expert legal advice, and perhaps, an introduction to a legal advisor who works on a no-win, no fee basis.
Filing a Tameside vehicle collision claim
You and your legal advisor, who should be an expert in the laws pertaining to road traffic accidents and making a Tameside vehicle collision claim, will have to make a case to prove that you were not responsible at all for the accident in which you were injured.
When there are casualties after a road traffic accident, the police should be called, as they have to investigate the reasons why the accident occurred. When they have appealed for witnesses and investigated the crash scene, they will write a report which cab prove to be very good evidence if you are to make a road traffic accident claim.
Another document which will be needed if you decide to file a personal injury compensation claim, is your medical report. Although you may also be asked to undergo a further medical examination, this report is needed to calculate how much compensation you could receive for the pain, distress and suffering caused you by your injuries. Your doctor should also indicate when, if ever, he or she expects you to be fully recovered. The medical report will also confirm that you had medical treatment for your injuries as soon as was practical after your accident.
How long do I have to file my claim?
You should really file a personal injury compensation claim as soon as possible after your accident. The sooner you begin the process, the better, as you might encounter financial hardship if your injuries prevent you from working.
You usually have three years in which to make a claim for injuries which occurred in an accident within the UK. Having said that, however, this is not always the case, as there are exceptions to the time limit rule. Call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out precisely how long you have to file your particular claim.
