Shall I make a claim for a whiplash injury in Hatfield?
If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Hatfield you will be considering the prospect of making a claim. Nonetheless, a lot of people do not go ahead and do so because they worry whether they have a good chance of getting compensation or not.
They don’t want to spend a lot of time and hassle on making a case, not to mention money as well, only for it to be unsuccessful. We don’t want this to happen to you either. Thus, if you read on you should discover all you need to know regarding your chances of making a claim for a whiplash injury in Hatfield.
The first thing you need to do is ask yourself whether the whiplash injury in Hatfield was your fault or whether it occurred because of someone else’s error or negligence. If it is a case of the former you will not have any chance of making a successful compensation claim. After all, it was your fault the incident occurred.
The next thing you need to consider is how long ago the accident occurred. If it happened within the last three years you will be able to make a claim. However, if it happened more than three years ago you will find it extremely difficult to make a case, as there is a three year time limit on all types of personal injury cases. It is worth noting that court proceedings must actually be issued within these three years.
The final thing you need to take into account is whether you saw a medical professional for your injuries or not. You cannot expect to make a personal injury claim if there is no proof of you having suffered an injury in the first place. Therefore, no matter how minor you think your injuries may be, make sure you go and see a doctor. It could be the difference between you getting thousands of pounds and nothing at all. Moreover, do you really want to leave your injuries and health to chance?
