Questions to Ask Before Making a Claim
The first question many clients ask is whether they have grounds to make a claim. To help determine whether you do, ask yourself:
- Are you over 18, or do you have someone who is over 18 who can represent you as your litigation friend?
- Did you suffer a physical injury or illness?
- Was this caused by another person’s mistake?
- Did it happen within the last three years (or are you under 21, if it happened before you turned 18?)
If you can answer “yes” to all of these questions, then it is probable that you have legitimate cause to claim compensation.
How to Make a Personal Injury Claim
Having contacted The Compensation Experts and been referred to a personal injury lawyer in Leeds, the next step is to build your case. Your lawyer will gather evidence to prove the extent of your injury. Normally your medical notes will suffice, but they may recommend you have an independent medical expert do an assessment to provide further evidence of your injuries and prognosis.
Being able to prove another party was responsible is key to making a successful claim, so your lawyer will obtain copies of the accident report you logged at the time, police reports if they were called to the scene, and any other relevant to demonstrate the other party was at fault. The stronger the evidence you present upfront, the less likely the other party’s insurance company is to dispute the claim as they know it will only cost them more in legal fees if they drag the process out.
If the other side disputes liability, or if you are unable to agree on an acceptable amount of compensation, your solicitor will submit your claim to a court for a judge to hear it and make a decision. There is still a good chance an out-of-court settlement will be reached up to the date of your hearing, but you do not have to worry about going to court as your solicitor will only pursue this course of action if they are 100% confident that it is for your benefit not to settle out of court.
