Accidents can occur at any time whether you are at home, at work or just going about your daily business outdoors. If you are unfortunate enough to get involved in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you have a right to make a compensation claim.
In simple terms, a compensation claim is a claim for money to compensate you for both physical and psychological injuries sustained due to an accident. A compensation claim is also meant to reimburse any financial expenses you incurred. These expenses include, but are not limited to, medical fees, loss of earnings and cost of care where applicable.
You can file a compensation claim as long as someone else is to blame for the accident and the incident must have happened within the last three years. You should also have sustained injuries and sought medical attention for them.
Who will deal with the paperwork?
Making compensation claims is a long and arduous process. There are numerous regulations and legislations to follow coupled with a lot of paperwork. Trying to file a compensation claim on your own will only leave you worn out and frustrated.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that dealing with heaps of paperwork can be overwhelming for most people, more so when they are recovering from injuries sustained in an accident. That is why we strive to make the whole compensation process as easy and hassle-free for you as we possibly can.
Although you might be required to fill out a few forms, we do most of the paperwork for you. Any details we need confirmed plus any information we need to relay to you can be dealt with via telephone, emails and in writing.
We shoulder all the pain and stress throughout the process, leaving you to concentrate on the most important thing – recuperating from your injuries.
