If you’re wondering about making a bruised legs claim but are not sure where to begin, give us a call at Accident Advice Helpline and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you. We deal with lots of cases like this and understand that severe bruising can be very difficult to cope with. You may be in considerable pain and you could find it hard to walk. Injuries such as this are not trivial and, if someone else was responsible for it, you have a right to compensation for your suffering.
Is your claim eligible?
As you would expect with a legal process, there are a number of rules that govern whether or not you can get compensation. First and foremost, your case will need to be brought within three years of your accident. You will need to have been treated by a doctor for your injuries, so that there is a formal medical record of them. If you were treated in a hospital after your accident, that could be sufficient. Give us a call if there’s anything you’re unsure about. Our advice is free and doesn’t mean that you have to make a claim with us.
How to take action
If you want to make a compensation claim, we can offer you a great service. Every case we handle uses a no win, no fee agreement, so there’s no money to pay up front and nothing to pay at all if you lose.
We believe that every accident victim deserves high quality representation, so we match up our clients with solicitors who are experts in the kind of accidents they’ve suffered. If we can’t find a suitable solicitor near you in a reasonable timeframe, we’ll offer you one who is a little further afield and arrange for you to communicate by phone so that you don’t need to worry about travel. We realise that serious bruising can make travel difficult, and we’ll arrange everything as best we can to fit around your needs.
In order to build up your case, your solicitor will need to collect evidence about your accident. If you can take photographs of your bruises at their most vivid, that could be very helpful. If you’re able to get out and about, it can also help to take photographs of the place where you were injured, ideally from several different angles. If you can find witnesses to your accident, take their details and pass them to your solicitor, who will be able to obtain formal statements.
Making a bruised legs claim can be simpler than you might expect. Compensation can cover the cost of things like lost earnings, if you have had to take time off work, and you should give your solicitor the receipts for any expenses associated with your case. We will strive to get you the best possible settlement.
