At Accident Advice Helpline, we are asked the question ‘Can I claim for an accident as a property surveyor?’ more often than you might think. Working as a surveyor can be a hazardous job. The tricky part is working out when accidents are someone else’s fault, and that is where our free advice service comes in useful.
It’s easy to call. Our lines are open round the clock on 0800 689 0500 and our highly trained advisers are always ready to listen. We’ll usually be able to establish straight away whether you have a valid claim or not, and sometimes we’ll be able to give you an idea of how much compensation you may be eligible to receive. This advice is free, no matter what you decide to do. If you do decide that you want us to help you make a claim, we can get the process started at once. If you’re interested in claiming but want a bit more time to think about it, that’s fine. We’ll never put you under any pressure.
There are regulations governing the claims process, and you ought to be aware of those from the outset. Firstly, if you are to make a claim, you will normally have to do so within three years of your accident happening. Secondly, you will be unable to claim unless a doctor has treated you for your injuries. This applies even if you have received good first aid treatment, as there will need to be a formal medical report detailing what happened to you.
Theoretically, it is possible for you to represent yourself in a compensation case, but the vast majority of people who attempt this are unsuccessful. If you’re worried about not being able to afford good representation, we can offer you a no win, no fee deal, which means that you won’t need any money up front. If you win your claim, our fees will be deducted from your compensation, but don’t worry – the law ensures that you will always keep most of your compensation.
Because we won’t get paid unless we win, you can be confident that we’re on your side, and we’ll make sure that you have the very best representation. An accident as a property surveyor may fall under the purview of different legal specialities depending on the exact circumstances. If your employer is to blame, we will allocate your case to a good workplace accident solicitor. If a client is to blame, we will select a solicitor experienced in the particular type of accident you have suffered. As a national organisation with a large legal team, we can usually do this within just a few days.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we are contacted by a lot of people who are under a lot of stress, so we have worked to make our process as stress free as possible. Winning compensation helps many people get over the stress of their accidents for good. To discuss your claim with a member of our expert team dial 0800 689 0500 now.
