If you suffer an injury in an accident that is somebody else’s fault then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
What is a compensation claim?
If your accident was in the last 3 years and it was somebody else’s fault then you can claim for compensation for the injuries and damages that you suffered. It helps to have as much information about your accident as possible and ideally witness statements.
How do I go about making a personal injury claim?
Using a solicitor will be the best course of action since they will maximise the amount of compensation you receive because of their experience with the system. You want to make sure the top line value of your claim is as high as possible and also reduce the level of legal fees you need to pay for the service.
What can I expect to be charged
Some companies, such as Accident Advice Helpline, offer 100 per cent no win, no fee* legal advice and assistance in making these compensation claims. We specialise in travel accident compensation, slips, trips and falls and accidents at work.
In April 2013 the law changed so that you can no longer claim “success fees” from the defendant in a case. The result of this is that if you win your case you will need to pay a pre-agreed percentage of your winnings to the legal team who dealt with your case.
If your claim is unsuccessful, however, you will be under no financial risk since these no win, no fee* schemes do not need anything paid by the claimant until the completion of the claim.
So if you have suffered an injury in the last three years in an accident that was somebody else’s fault then call Accident Advice Helpline’s freephone number today.
