If you have been injured while making deliveries from your van, you may well want to ask: “can I make a delivery driver claim?”. The people to contact are personal injury lawyers, particularly those with experience in dealing with this type of claim.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we employ a team of solicitors with the experience and expertise to deal with your enquiries about how to go about making a delivery driver claim. All you have to do is pick up the phone and call our free 24-hour helpline.
How will I know whether or not I can make a delivery driver claim?
By contacting an advisor at Accident Advice Helpline you will be taking the first step towards learning whether you have sufficient grounds for making a delivery driver claim. In order to make a claim you should not have been responsible for the accident. Who actually is liable also needs to be identified.
Before proceeding further you must provide as much information as possible about the incident that led to your injury. Apart from your own recollection of what occurred, it will be advantageous if you have the names and contact details of any witnesses and if the police were involved, the name and force number of the investigating officer.
If it transpires that you do have grounds for making a delivery driver claim we will allocate one of our solicitors to handle your case. This process involves gathering together a great deal of information.Open Claim Calculator
A medical report detailing the extent of your injuries will be very important if a compensation claim is to be made. If you have not already undergone a medical examination, we will advise you to do so as quickly as possible.
You will be asked to provide a note of any wages, including overtime, you have lost while off work recovering. You may also have incurred other expenses such as prescription charges, the cost of travel to and from medical appointments, the expense of non-NHS treatment and any essential care that you required. All of these costs will be included in your claim for compensation.
Will your services be expensive?
The legal costs involved in making any personal injury claim can be prohibitive for many because it no longer qualifies for legal aid. However, at Accident Advice Helpline we operate on a no win no fee* basis. This means that if we decide your claim merits being pursued further and you ask us to represent you, you will not be asked to pay anything up front.
When should I contact you about a delivery driver claim?
The plain answer is that you should contact us as soon after the accident as possible. This is because in the UK there are strict deadlines, currently three years from the date of the incident, when it comes to making compensation claims.
By contacting Accident Advice Helpline about your delivery driver claim, we will be able to guide you through what can be a very complex and time consuming process.
