Making a claim for compensation when you’ve been hurt in an accident can be a complicated business. Thankfully Accident Advice Helpline is here to show you how it’s possible to find a top class lawyer who also offers no win no fee in Winwick.
Getting the help you deserve
To show you how, let’s take you through this hypothetical situation. Imagine for a moment that you’ve been hurt in a car accident. The injuries you’ve sustained are pretty serious and have kept you off work. Because you work for yourself, you’ve been unable to claim any pay which means you’re struggling straight away.
You think you deserve compensation and want to know what your rights are.
Building a case
The first thing you need to do is check that the accident happened within the maximum time limit allowed for making a claim. In the UK this limit is set at three years so if you were hurt more than three years ago then, sadly, you’ve missed your chance.
Next you need to show that the accident was not your fault. This is challenging when it comes to a car accident as there may be some doubt as to whom was most at fault. The other driver may not believe it was their fault and may even be launching a counter claim against you for injuries that they have sustained.
To give yourself a good chance of winning you need to focus on one thing – evidence. In those cases in which there is considerable doubt about what happened the court will rely on the evidence to point them in the right direction.
Let’s assume that you’re confident of your case for a minute. If that’s the case then it is in your interests to encourage as much information to be released about the accident as possible. Gather the contact details of any witnesses at the scene as well as all attending police officers. You will not need to contact these people – just leave that down to your lawyer.
You might also be helped by any CCTV footage or photos of the scene.
Finally, look at the severity of the injury. If you’ve received medical attention then make a note of it. Also make a note of any jobs you’ve been unable to do as a result and any earnings that would have resulted. This will form part of your compensation.
