In order for this to be possible, the solicitor will likely ask you to go for a medical examination. They will then use the results of this examination to work out how much compensation you could be eligible for.

Could accident claims solicitors covering Crewe help me with an accident that was in part my fault?
Sometimes, you might be involved in an accident where it isn’t immediately clear who is at fault. In cases such as car accidents, this means that you should not say anything at the scene that could be considered admittance of fault. Even a simple ‘sorry’ could be used against you. If you’re partially at fault for such an accident, but there is also some blame by another party, this could mean you could still claim compensation. Our personal injury solicitors covering Crewe could help you make a split liability claim of this type, and would be happy to speak to you about your claim.
Sometimes, these claims can be somewhat complex, especially if the other party doesn’t admit they were partly to blame. Such cases take carefully evidence gathering and negotiation to resolve. In cases where the liable party refuses your claim or disputes your injuries, it may be necessary to go through the courts to claim the compensation you deserve. Lawyers could support you if your claim needs to be heard in court, and could help you with your fight for compensation throughout.
