If you are considering claiming injury compensation following a car accident, we can help.
Whether you can claim compensation or not will largely depend on who was at fault for the accident, or in legal terms how the liability is apportioned.
In most cases the liability will be decided between the legal representatives of the people involved. This would involve careful consideration of the available evidence such as independent witness testimonies, photographs, CCTV and police reports.
In the majority of situations, the liability can be decided without the need for a formal court appearance.
In a simple case, it may be determined that the accident was clearly the fault of the other driver and so you would almost certainly be entitled to make a claim for any injuries you may have sustained.
If it is decided that you are partly to blame for the car accident, in legal terms this is known as 'split-liability'.
If your accident is split-liability you may still be able to claim compensation for your injuries. The solicitors we work with will have to look carefully into the circumstances and decide if the claim is worth pursuing on your behalf.
If your claim is successful you would receive a reduced settlement amount depending on the level of blame that was attributed to you.
Unfortunately if it is decided that you were entirely to blame for the accident, you will not be able to claim compensation.
