If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you may well be entitled to personal injury compensation. Here are the answers to some of the questions we deal with every day at Accident Advice Helpline that can help people decide whether they want to pursue a compensation claim for their injuries.
Who can claim compensation?
Anyone who has been the victim of an accident in the past three years that was someone else’s fault probably has a case to claim. There are some intricacies that may mean you are more or less likely to be successful with your claim, but it is down to us to figure that out for you. In some cases, such as if the accident was caused when you were a minor, of if it relates to industrial disease, you may be able to claim for a lot longer than just the three year period, so get in touch and find out for yourself.
How long does it take to claim compensation?
Claiming compensation is not an overnight process. The legal procedures that have to be followed as well as the paperwork that has to be processed means that the minimum period is usually a few weeks. With very complicated cases it could be as long as a few months, or even more. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we know how important it is for you to have your money as soon after the accident as possible, so will endeavour to make things happen as swiftly and as easily as we can.
How much will I get?
Injury compensation is worked out based upon the extent of your injuries and the impact they have had on your lifestyle. When people contact us to claim compensation for an injury, we use our tried and tested compensation calculator to figure out roughly how much they will be able to claim. This calculator has been built on a decade of industry experience, and is unique in the marketplace. You can try the calculator for yourself on our website: we call it the ’30 second test’.
How much will it cost me to claim compensation?
The good news is that it will cost you nothing at all to claim compensation for your injury, so you can start the ball rolling even if you are struggling for cash. All our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis, meaning that they will not take any money for their services unless they are successful in claiming compensation for you.
