Many of the personal injury claims in West Devon that we here at Accident Advice Helpline assist people with, in terms of securing financial compensation, are injuries sustained by people on holiday. But before you can launch a claim for financial compensation, you must first ascertain that the blame for the accident or incident that caused the injury can be attributed to a third party, such as the owners of a hotel or guest house for example.
If you’ve been injured while you were away on holiday, in addition to the financial compensation for the injury itself, you may also be due to receive recompense for having your holiday cut short. You may also have incurred extra costs such as for medical attention or additional travel. In addition, if your injury is severe and causes you to stay off work, you may also be entitled to receive compensation for loss of earnings.
Reasons for taking the 30-second test
The amount of financial compensation that you may be owed will be dependent on the nature and severity of the injury sustained. Awarded sizes vary anywhere from about £600, to in-excess of £185,000. You can get an idea of how much compensation your injury may be worth by taking the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test.
This test works on two levels. In the first place it serves to establish in principle whether or not you do indeed have a valid claim. In the second-place, and indeed if your claim is thought to be valid, you will be provided with an on-screen estimate forecasting the amount of compensation you could be awarded. This sum however will be for the injury only. Any additional compensation, for things like loss of earnings, will be tackled by the solicitor allocated case once you’ve registered your claim.
Prerequisites that apply to claims in Devon
We’ve already discussed the fact that the blame for the accident/incident has to be attributed to a third party. But there are some other pre-requisites too, and this applies not only to claims in West Devon, but to claims anywhere in the UK. Firstly, the injury has to have been sustained within the past three years, and secondly, the injury must have necessitated medical attention. These points are all taken into consideration when you take the 30-second test.
Accident Advice Helpline is one of the UK’s favourite injury claim solicitors. We have a superb recommendation from our patron and well-known people’s consumer champion, Dame Esther Rantzen. We also offer one of the most comprehensive customer support programs in the claim industry; something that can be very important with some cases where there are complications or where the claimant may be a little unsure of his/her grounds.
