The numbers of claims are on the rise every year and so is the number of compensation companies. The whole process can become over complicated and leave you left wondering what to do next.
If you’ve been unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault and are unsure what to do, where to go or who to speak to, we’ve put together this handy guide to help guide you through the confusing compensation claim process.
Lesson 1: Can I claim?
This is the first question you need to ask after being injured in an accident. Compensation can be claimed for a variety of reasons from a variety of different people. If the accident wasn’t your fault and it happened in the last 3 years there is a good chance you can claim.
Lesson 2: Who was at fault?
It wasn’t your fault. So who was to blame?
Identifying the person to blame for your injury is very important to the claims process. If you were injured through no fault of your own there is a good chance that someone is to blame. It may not always be as obvious as a car accident to ascertain who was at fault but for example, if you tripped in the street and injured yourself your local authority could be to blame for poorly maintaining their public footpaths. It is always worth trying to find out if someone was responsible.
Lesson 3: Get evidence!
Okay, so you’ve been injured and it wasn’t your fault. But why should anyone believe that? If you can’t support your claim with any evidence the chances of having a successful claim drop dramatically. Always record the names of any witnesses and get any photographic evidence you can. We live in the age of the Camera Phone – Don’t forget it!
Lesson 4: Find the right legal advice
There are a number of legal companies out there at the moment and it’s important you choose the right one for you.
