A whiplash injury in Rhuddlan could mean compensation for you
Sometimes it’s the smallest things which can cause the biggest problems. This is why, if you’re suffering from a whiplash injury in Rhuddlan, it’s a good idea to know what your rights are. Here’s our guide to what we can do to help you make a successful claim.
Knowing your rights
The first thing to remember is just how important it is to understand your rights. If you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault you will be entitled to compensation on the condition that you can satisfy three major requirements. The first is that the accident must have happened at some point within the last three years. The second is that the injury must have been severe enough to require some form of medical attention and the third is that you must be able to prove your case in a court of law.
When these cases go to court, the onus is on you as the claimant to prove your case – not for the other side to do the same. This means that they get the benefit of the doubt and if the evidence you provide falls short of proof in any way you will not be entitled to make a claim at all.
This is why it’s so important to get evidence and this starts with getting details of the medical issues you’re suffering. We often suggest that our clients seek out an additional medical assessment in order to give them, and us, a much better understanding of how badly they have been injured and how this should be reflected in any personal injury claim that they choose to make. This provides independent evidence about the scope of the injuries you have suffered and can help you to make a more accurate assessment about how much compensation you should be awarded – if any. This is a good way for you to get your own idea about how much you should be getting. It can come in handy if you have to make any decisions about accepting a settlement offer or not.
