Know Your Rights
Being involved in a car accident can be incredibly distressing so we want to help you to resolve your claim as quickly as possible with minimal stress.
We recommend you see a lawyer as soon as you can after the accident, don’t wait too long to file a claim. Your lawyer will then look at all the facts of the case and can advise you on the best way to proceed.
Why it is Important to File Your Accident Claim
Accident victims regularly need time off work to recover from their personal injury – leading to financial problems such as struggling to keep up with mortgage repayments. In fact, many people return to work too early due to these problems, often making their injury worse. That is why it is important that they make an accident claim and are awarded the compensation they deserve – to give them the time needed to make a full recovery following their accident.
Accident claims should be successful if it can be shown that someone has been at fault in some way – that they have failed in duty or not taken reasonable care – and that this fault or failure caused (or partly caused) the accident. This may be quite obvious in some cases, but in others, it can be quite complicated.
When you come to Shaikh Law you can be confident that your Personal Injury Lawyer will diligently work on all aspects of your accident claim.
In order to proceed, the incident must be reported to the police. You may be able to claim as a passenger, a pedestrian, a driver, a cyclist or a motorcyclist.
The Claim for negligence may include exceeding the speed limit, distraction, failing to brake fast enough, ignoring traffic signals or alcohol and drug consumption, among other things.
Every driver on the road has a duty to drive carefully. If you are harmed due to another driver’s negligence then you may be entitled to compensation.
Following a road traffic accident, there are two main ways to claim. If another driver was at fault you can claim against them in a tort claim.
Alternatively, you can claim via an insurance company, either yours or theirs. Insurance claims can seem overwhelming due to the vast amount of complex paperwork, but navigating this process and acting as your advocate is our way of removing the stress from you.
How Can We Help You
Following your first visit to your lawyer, we will establish whether there is enough evidence to proceed after speaking to you, your insurance company and the police.
Your Car Accident Lawyer will establish the kind of loss you have suffered. This may be a loss of income or long-term disability.
Some conditions and losses are easy to evidence for example, an obvious medical problem, damage to property or loss of earnings but others are harder to prove.
The trickier ones include physical pain and emotional distress. In order to prove these, a complex analysis will be required and your lawyer will need to look at all the different ways it has affected your life.
This can include the impact on your relationships and employment, both current and future.
What You Should Do After An Accident
Forewarned is forearmed so bear in mind the following points. As soon as possible after a crash, you should call the emergency services and ensure that a medic examines you. Continue to see a healthcare professional for a few weeks afterward as some injuries don’t appear immediately, brain injuries in particular.
Remember to keep copies of any test results and prescriptions. Whilst you are on the scene if you are able to, collect contact details of all parties involved and any witnesses.
Make a note of any license plate numbers. It’s really helpful if you are able to take pictures which may help your lawyer to provide evidence at a later date.
At Shaikh Law, we offer a free initial consultation with a Personal Injury Lawyer.
At this initial consultation, your lawyer will discuss the details of your injury and how it happened. This will allow the lawyer to establish the strengths of your case are and roughly how much compensation you can expect.
With a professional yet sympathetic helping hand, there’s nothing to stop you from claiming the compensation for a personal injury that you deserve after what can only be a traumatic experience.
