At Stacks Goudkamp, we can give you advice on the procedures and process that must be followed to obtain appropriate compensation for compensation claims.
Most personal injury compensation cases are settled without going to court.
However, to ensure the settlement is achieved on the best possible terms, personal injury cases are rarely settled until they have been fully prepared.
After our lawyers have received instructions in a personal injury accident claim they carry out a full investigation of the circumstances of the accident and determine who is at fault.
Our lawyers may do the following to determine the circumstances of your personal injury compensation claim:
Attend the scene of the accident
Obtain police and other records
Engage expert traffic engineers and professional experts (where appropriate)
We also fully investigate for long-term consequences of those injuries. This can involve obtaining detailed statements from the injured person, his/her carers and collecting records and reports from the ambulance service, hospitals and treating doctors. This may also involve arranging independent medico-legal assessments.
In all cases, the person suffering personal injury bears the burden of proving, on the balance of probabilities, that the injuries they sustained were caused by someone else’s negligence, and that the injured person has suffered loss, damage and injuries as claimed. This is why it is essential you contact Stacks Goudkamp today and get assistance and advice for your compensation claim.
