How Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with your coach driver injury claim
You must understand that not everyone who suffers an injury in an accident is entitled to make a claim for compensation. Generally, you cannot make a claim if the accident was caused by you. However, even if there is doubt about your liability it may still be in your best interests to contact us.
What we can offer you
Our solicitors will lend a sympathetic ear at what is likely to be a traumatic time in your life. Based on the information you provide, in addition to that received from third party sources, such as witnesses and the police, it should be possible to determine whether you have sufficient grounds for making a coach driver injury claim.
Many people are afraid to pursue claims, even where they have a strong case, because they fear facing huge legal costs, particularly if the claim is lost. Here at Accident Advice Helpline our personal injury lawyers operate on a no win no fee* basis. This means that if we think you have grounds for proceeding with your coach driver injury claim, we represent you on the basis of no win no fee* and so you will not have to pay anything up front.
How we decide if you have grounds for a claim
The answer to the question: “can I make a coach driver injury claim?”, is usually yes, but in addition to providing your own recollection of the accident or incident, the names and contact details of any witnesses will also be required, as will the name and service number of the police officer investigating the incident. This will not only enable us to gauge the strength of your case, but will also provide crucial evidence should you decide to proceed.
Perhaps the most important piece of evidence you will be asked for is your doctor’s medical report, which details the extent of your injuries and the treatment you have received. If you have not already undergone a medical examination we will advise you to do so.
If you have been forced to take time off work to recuperate from your injuries, you may well be suffering financial hardship; this is one of the chief reasons why people make injury accident claims. Other costs that can be included in your compensation claim include prescription charges, non-NHS treatment and if applicable, essential help and care costs.
