One of the problems associated with making a claim for injury compensation is the emotions involved in such an action. If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident or incident that resulted in personal injury, it can take a lot of time to recover from the outcome. As well as your physical wellbeing, you may also suffer from some form of post-traumatic stress. The very idea of having to relive the whole ordeal once again, can be enough to put many people off making a claim. In fact about 70% of people involved in accidents, never bother to seek any kind of claim for financial compensation. The benchmark for how long you can wait before making a claim is usually 3 years after the event. If you require more information about the whole process involved, you can call us at Accident Advice helpline on our 24/7 freephone number.
How Much Compensation Can I Expect?
This is a very common question and usually depends on a number of factors:
- How much money have you lost as a result of the incident?
- If you are making a claim for medical compensation, how severe was your injury/illness?
It can be very difficult to levy a figure against personal anguish and pain, and this is where the expertise of legal specialists comes into play. Accident Advice Helpline will be able to calculate your probable claim amount by looking into all of the mitigating and resulting factors.

How Long Do Claims Take?
Many individuals are reticent to make a claim for financial compensation because of the possibility of a long and stressful case. Many cases can be resolved very quickly, and this depends on how easy it is to establish liability and the correct claim amount. A standard claims case will usually take between 12-18 months to conclude.
