If you have been unlucky enough to be involved in an accident and you were injured as a result, it may be possible for you to make a personal injury claim. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we specialise in helping people like you, who have been injured by someone else, go after the compensation you are entitled to, and we are very successful at doing so.
Starting personal injury claims in Maesteg
The first thing you will need to do is determine whether or not you are actually eligible to make a claim for compensation. Here is the basics criteria which entitles you to do so:
- You were involved in an accident
- You sustained injuries
- The accident was not your fault
Injuries you could make a claim for include:
- Food poisoning
- Fractured bones
- Facial scarring
You could have been injured in any of the following:
- Slips, trips, falls
- Workplace accidents
- Car accidents
- Ferry accidents
- Exposure to hazardous chemicals in an industrial setting
If, based on the information above, you think that you may well be entitled to compensation, you can call us at any time to discuss the matter further. We are always on hand to help you with any enquiries you may have.
Like any other kind of legal claim, you will need to be able to prove your case. This means that you will need to be able to provide us with documentation relating to your accident. We will need to see some of the following, in particular the things in bold:
- Medical evidence of your injuries
- Official accident reports
- Photographs of the accident scene
- Proof of expenses
- Medical bills
- Loss of earnings proof
- Details of any witnesses
Don’t panic if you do not have all of these to hand as we will be able to help you track some of these things down if and when you decide to put us on your case.
Will I have to attend court?
We know how stressful court can be, especially when you’re battling with an injury or illness. Luckily, most personal injuries are settled by insurance companies out of court. This means that it is very unlikely that you will ever have to attend court.
What will I have to pay?
We are a no win no fee personal injury law firm, which means that you won’t have to pay us a penny until we secure a settlement for you. If we aren’t able to do that, we won’t charge you anything.
