By calling Accident Advice Helpline, you can get friendly and useful open water swimming injury advice. We have helped thousands of personal injury victims win the compensation they deserve since the establishment of our firm in 2000. If your injury happened in the last three years and can be shown to have been caused by someone else, you could be offered no win, no fee* legal representation by one of our highly skilled and experienced solicitors.
On our website, you will find lots of useful background information about what it means to make a personal injury compensation claim. But if you would like to speak to an actual person and receive open water swimming injury advice that is tailored to you, then why not give us a call? Our highly trained advisors can help answer any questions you have and can provide you with the open water swimming injury advice that you are looking for.
When you call, one of our advisors will ask you what happened when you were swimming on open water, who else was with you at the time, what kind of evidence exists to show that someone else is to blame for your injuries and what the effect of the accident was on you.
Why make a claim?
The main benefit of making an accident claim is financial. If injury meant you had to stop working for a while, you could find a claim useful in paying some of your obligations. You could also use the funds received to pay for private mental healthcare or medical prescriptions.
The other main benefit of claiming can be emotional. As part of your recovery process after sustaining a physical or mental injury in the water, the knowledge that the party at fault has paid you compensation could be a significant boost.
Is the claim process difficult?
Depending on the nature of your open water swimming accident, the documentation and evidence needed to support your compensation claim can vary in complexity. The evidence we need will include any photographs of the accident, information from witnesses and your medical records.
The length of the claim process can also vary, although this can depend on the willingness of the party at fault to admit his or her culpability. In some instances, the other party may offer you an early settlement, although your lawyer can advise you if it’s in your best interests to accept it, or to turn it down to proceed with the claim.
To give you a good idea of the amount of compensation you could be entitled to, we have a useful tool on our homepage that you will find interesting: our 30-second claim calculator. All you need to do is answer a few simple questions about your accident and you will see how much you could be entitled to.
If there is anything else that we can help you with, then call us today. We are happy to offer free, no obligation open water swimming injury advice to anyone who has suffered as a result of an accident that was not their fault.
