When you’re looking to make a personal injury claim, one of the most common mistakes you can make is to think of the entire subject as being the same. Indeed, each claim will be very different and will require a different approach. This article will look at some of the things you should be thinking about, and how you can go about ensuring that you find a top class lawyer who offers no win no fee in Wickford.
When you can and can’t claim
There are some basic rules to be aware of before you go about making a claim. The first of these is the issue of blame. Under UK law, you are entitled to launch a claim for compensation if you’ve been hurt in an accident that was not your fault.
However, it’s not quite as simple as that. The injury needs to be bad enough to require medical treatment. If you’ve been hurt in such a way that was relatively minor and has had little or no impact on your life, then it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to make a claim.
One final point before you move on is to look at when the accident happened. In the UK, there is a limit on the amount of time you can let go past before you make a decision about making a claim. If you wait more than three years, you won’t be able to make a claim regardless how good your claim might or might not be.
Different types of claim
There will also be good cause to stop and think about what type of accident you’ve been in. For example, the requirements of making a claim for an accident in a car will be different than in the workplace, so you will want the appropriate representation for you.
Most lawyers will only focus on one or perhaps two different types of personal injury law. Finding someone who matches your requirements will increase your chances of getting a good service. In the early instance you’ll get better advice, and there will also be a slightly better chance of winning your case at the end.
