Making an accident injury claim in Rugby
If you want to find out if you can make an accident injury claim in Rugby then the first thing you need to do is find out if you are eligible.
There are various ways that you can do this via Accident Advice Helpline , for example you can take our 30 second test or you can give us a call on our free phone helpline.
No matter how you get in touch to test your eligibility we will need to find out the answers to some basic questions. Depending on the answers to these we will be able to tell you whether or not you can make a claim, and if we can support you to do so.
When was your accident?
One of the first things we will need to know is when your accident, or the incident which led you to want to make an accident injury claim in Rugby, occurred.
We won’t need to know the precise date at this stage though so don’t worry if you do not have that information to hand. Generally speaking what we need to confirm is that the accident did not occur more than three years ago. If it did then there is a good chance that you will not be able to make your claim.
There are of course some exceptions to this, for example in the case of industrial disease. As it is often impossible to ascertain when the disease started we will be able to make a claim within three years from the date you were officially diagnosed by your GP or other medical professional.
As always, if you are unsure, please call us to find out more and receive free, no obligation advice.
Were you injured?
We will also want to know if you suffered an injury as a result of this accident and if you sought medical attention. This is important as ultimately your injury is what you are making an accident injury claim in Rugby for.
The severity of the injury itself is not always an issue, we simply need to know that it was serious enough to warrant medical attention and it has had an impact on your day to day life (even if it was temporarily).
Were you at fault?
Provided that you were not at fault for your accident, and we can ascertain who was and why then there is every chance that you will be able to make a claim and secure the compensation you are entitled to.
