There are many, many different circumstances in which you may wish to make accident compensation claims. Accident compensation claims arise when there is evidence to suggest that you, or a family member, have been involved in an accident where somebody else was to blame. Their involvement in your accident may have been purely innocent, but if there are reasons to believe this person (or corporation, or government agency) was negligent in any way, you could be entitled to make an accident compensation claim.
Obviously, your first priority after an accident is to ensure that appropriate medical treatment is administered and, if you feel that there are grounds for an accident compensation claim, your attendance at a hospital or doctor´s surgery will be recorded in your medical history to support your case.
When children are involved, it is the parent or guardian who must originate accident compensation claims, and if not present at the scene try to establish from independent witnesses how the accident was caused. Frequently, this is not always possible and sometimes the parent too has been involved in the accident.
You should contact an accident compensation solicitor at the first possible opportunity after an accident has occurred to discuss your potential claim.
Making Accident Compensation Claims
Another reason to speak with an expert accident compensation solicitor is that when the liable party or their representatives are aware that an accident was their fault, they will often attempt to make an offer of recompense which may be completely inadequate for the trauma you have suffered and the potential for future loss of earnings or medical expenses. Of course it is tempting to take this seemingly “easy” money but usually it is not advisable.
