Car Accident Claims: What Type of Injuries can I Claim for?
Sadly, due to the high speeds often involving car accidents and the number of people involved in such accidents, it is highly likely that if you have been involved in a road traffic accident, you will have suffered from some sort of injury.
Severe injuries such as brain damage, fractures, broken limbs and bones and serious head injuries are some of the most serious injuries you can sustain if you are involved in a road traffic accident. However, it is also possible to suffer from lacerations, concussions and whiplash. At Personal Injury Claims, we believe that regardless of the extent of your injuries or the seriousness of the implications as a result of your accidents, if you were injured and were not at fault for your accident, you should be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
To make a claim, it is vital that you were not at fault for your own injuries. If you caused the accident that led to your injuries, then you will not be able to make a personal injury claim. Furthermore, following your accident, if you do wish to begin legal proceedings, you must do so no later than three years after the incident. If you fail to take action after the three year period has elapsed, then you will not be able to make a personal injury claim.
Making a Claim in Wakefield: What Evidence is Needed?
As stated above there are some aspects of a personal injury claim that must be met, such as the time limit and the cause of the accident. However, making a personal injury claim is not always a simple process, with many people being unsure about how to take legal action. Therefore, it is beneficial to enlist the help and support of a personal injury lawyer.
In order to try and claim as much compensation as possible, solicitors will use evidence to support your claim to get the damages you deserve. When making a personal injury claim, it is vital that you provide the basic details of the incident such as where, when and how the accident took place. As well as this, our team of solicitors will require further evidence that can be used to support your claim. A medical report, photographic evidence of either your injuries or what caused the accident, CCTV footage, an accident report and other evidence that you believe could be beneficial when making a personal injury claim should be provided to our team of solicitors to give them the best chance of obtaining compensation.
