If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident due to another driver’s fault then you are permitted according to the law to file a claim. In order to do this, you will need to have a solicitor assist you through the process. You will want a solicitor that has knowledge with personal injury law. The solicitors at Express Solicitors have a great deal of experience in this area and can assist you with making your claim.
Your solicitor will first want to obtain as much information about the accident from you as possible, and will also want to meet with you quickly. They will assess the information you provide and advise you on the merit of your claim. If they agree your claim is valid then they will issue a letter of claim. This document is sent to defendant - which is the other driver. This letter is rather detailed as it must contain certain information under the law. Therefore, having an experienced solicitor is crucial.
After the letter of claim has been sent, the defendant has three weeks to respond. They must either deny or accept responsibility for the accident. If they deny being responsible they must give reasons as well as provide documentation. They also are given three months to complete their own investigation into the matter. Although, if they admit fault, this is not needed and the claim has been won.
If the defendant denies any blame for the accident your solicitor will inspect their accompanying documents. They will advise you as to whether or not you should continue pursuing your claim. They may advise you to end your claim as it may not be likely to succeed. If the case if worth continuing they will guide you through the next steps as you continue to seek compensation for your injuries.
