If you are looking for a personal injury lawyer then it can be a challenge to know where you should look. But this hypothetical case study will show you how a typical claim with us might work and how we can help someone find a lawyer who offers no win no fee* in Whiteinch.
For the purposes of this piece that someone is going to be called Bob. Bob broke his leg in a car accident five months ago. He’s been unable to work ever since and money worries are starting to bite. A friend saw an advertisement for the Accident Advice Helpline featuring Esther Rantzen and thought it might be worth a look.
So, can he claim?
It is perfectly possible that he might be able to make a claim. The accident happened within the last three years which is the maximum amount of time you can allow to pass without making a claim. Equally, it has caused him serious discomfort as his struggles to get back to work have shown.
The big question will be blame. If it was not his fault then he can make a claim against the other driver. By law we’re all required to carry third party car insurance, which covers any injuries caused by us to other drivers. This means he would be claiming not against the driver directly, but his insurance company.
However, here’s where it gets difficult. Lets say for a moment that the other driver does not think he was at fault and indeed is claiming against Bob? Who do we believe.
What he should do next
When faced with such a problem, the courts will look at the evidence they have available and make a decision based on that about whose story they find more convincing. Therefore, if Bob is confident about his case, he should be doing as much as he possibly can to encourage as much evidence to be placed into the case as possible.
He should be getting the contact details of any witnesses and passing these onto his lawyer who can look at them for him. He should also get any photographs of the scene and hand these over. All of this will be very useful when it comes to deciding who was to blame for the accident.
