Have you had a whiplash injury in Relubbus
If you suffer a whiplash injury in Relubbus it can seem pretty daunting to find a way to press ahead with making a claim. However, as this quick guide will show, it can be much easier than you think to claim compensation and get your life back on track.
Claiming compensation for a whiplash injury in Relubbus
The first thing we need to do is to look at whether you have a good chance of winning. The law says that when you are involved in an accident which was someone else’s fault, you may be able to claim compensation. For this to happen you will have to be able to show that you were not to blame and that the injury is bad enough to require medical attention. You must also mount a claim within three years of any injury. Anything that goes longer than that will not qualify no matter how good you think your case might be.
Going to court
If you go to court you will be in the position of the claimant. What this means is that the onus will be on you to prove your case rather than for other side to do so. They will be given the benefit of any doubt so if you are unable to deliver conclusive proof then you will not win your case.
However, the good news is that the majority of cases do not go that far. If the other side’s legal team think they have little chance of winning they will probably offer a settlement figure to stop the case there and then. In theory, this works for all sides; you get the money without the trouble of a long and drawn out legal battle, while they settle the case without having to go through the expense of going to court.
However, you will need legal advice to tell you whether or not you should accept a case. Some insurance companies like to get in early and make an offer before you’ve really considered your rights. This offer will often be a long way short of what you would be able to claim if you pressed the case yourself.
