Making a Claim for personal injury as a result of a Motor Vehicle Accident
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident as a result of another person’s negligence you may be able to claim compensation. We can only imagine the stress that you may be experiencing in dealing with your injuries and then on top of that, having to think about making an insurance claim with all its paper work. MM Law can represent you in the claims process so that you can focus more importantly on attempting to recover from your injuries.
Who can make a claim? You may be able to claim compensation if you were the driver of your vehicle, a passenger, a pedestrian, motorcyclist or bicyclist. You may also be entitled to compensation if you were injured as a result of cargo being inadequately secured in a vehicle, as a result of a defect in a vehicle or because of a trailer accident. In respect of fatal accidents, dependents of the deceased can take steps to claim compensation.
Because every person’s potential motor vehicle accident compensation claim is unique, our senior personal injuries solicitor would be pleased to discuss your individual case with you. It only takes a “no obligation” phone call to McColm Matsinger Lawyers.
Don’t forget that strict time limits apply in respect of claiming compensation. A claim form must be lodged with the insurer of the vehicle at fault either within 9 months from the date of accident or within 1 month after consulting a lawyer – whichever is sooner. If the vehicle at fault can’t be identified, don’t worry. A claim form can be lodged with the Nominal Defendant which acts like the insurer. That has to be done within 3 months of the date of accident. These time frames may be varied in limited circumstances.
So if you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, just call McColm Matsinger Lawyers for a chat in respect of your legal rights. It can’t hurt!
