The time following an accident or personal injury can be confusing and difficult, as you come to terms with the circumstances that led to your accident as well as any physical problems you have had to contend with. If you have had to take time off work or rely on friends and family for help and care, this can add to the stress of your situation.
Some accidents can leave you feeling very shaken and nervous; this is commonly the case for those who have been through a road traffic accident, for example.
The accident and injury claim process is something that need not add to the difficulties you have been facing. Law firms such as Accident Advice Helpline make sure that the accident and injury claim process is as straightforward and fuss-free as possible for you as the claimant. We can offer you peace of mind that your case is being handled in an open and honest way.
How does the accident and injury claim process work?
The first step in the accident and injury claim process is determining if you are actually eligible to make a claim. This usually depends on the following three factors:
- Did the accident occur through no fault of your own?
- Was your personal injury incurred within the past three years?
- Did you require medical attention?
There are online tools to help with this, such as the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second calculator. Our tool will tell you within half a minute whether or not you are eligible to make a claim, as well as calculating your estimated compensation amount based on the average amount received by others.
