So, keep on reading to discover everything you need to know.
Wychavon claims for compensation
There is only one place to begin, and this is by determining whether you have the basis for a claim. There are three important aspects that need to be considered, which are as follows:
- Medical assistance
- Date of accident
So, let’s begin with responsibility first; who caused the accident? If you are to make a personal injury claim, you need to be able to prove that someone else was responsible for the incident in question either through making an error or acting negligently. You certainly cannot make a claim if you are to blame. What about if you are partially to blame? Well, you still may be entitled to some compensation, but the amount will be lower to reflect your involvement.
Medical assistance is the next point that needs to be considered. Did you see a doctor for your injuries? If you have sustained severe injuries, you will, of course, have had no choice. However, there are some people that sustain minor injuries and opt to cope with them alone rather than seek medical assistance. If you do this, you will find it virtually impossible to claim. This is because the medical report your doctor provides is the most crucial piece of evidence, as it states your medical diagnosis, the extent of your injuries and the treatment you have to undergo, which is then used to determine how much money you will get. Without it, there is no proof of your suffering.
Finally, the date of the accident is important, as there is a time limit on all personal injury cases, which is three years. Therefore, you will have three years from the date of the incident and court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. The only exceptions relate to scenarios whereby injuries develop over time, such as hearing loss, and thus you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead, or in the case of minors.
