Filing personal injury claims in South Gloucestershire
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, and you can prove this, then you could be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim. Making claims in South Gloucestershire with Accident Advice Helpline can be a relatively simple process. We can handle most claims via telephone conversations.
In order to make a claim for personal injury, you also have to prove that another person (or organisation) was responsible for the accident. This is because there must be someone whose insurance company can pay compensation.
You should have received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you could after the accident. You can prove that you did so with your medical records. These are required to work out how much compensation you could be awarded, if your claim is successful, for your pain, distress and suffering.
First of all, of course, you should find out if your claim can be made. To do this, you can speak to one of our expert legal advisers on the phone. He or she will be able to tell you if your claim can be filed. If it can, the claims’ process can be started.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If your accident occurred at sea, or in the air, you have two years to file a personal injury compensation claim. Normally, if the accident happened in the UK, you have three years to make a claim. There are some accidents and their resultant injuries, which carry shorter limitation periods. You must usually claim within the set limitation period. If you don’t, you forfeit the right to make your claim.
You can only file a claim after the date for filing it has passed if you can prove that you were prevented from filing it within the limitation period by exceptional circumstances, or if you were under the age of eighteen when the accident happened.
