It’s always best to make a start on your accident and injury compensation claim in Blaby as soon as possible after your accident. Your first step should be to check your eligibility to make a claim. This is fast, free and simple with Accident Advice Helpline. Call us and tell us what’s happened to you – we’ll give you our honest opinion as to whether your accident meets the criteria right away.
When to start your accident and injury compensation claim in Blaby
Generally speaking, your accident must have caused you to suffer injuries requiring medical treatment, either at the scene or subsequently. It must have been caused by someone else – whether that was a company, an individual or a statutory body – acting carelessly or negligently.
You then have three years in most cases in which to get your claim started. Even if you decide to delay a little before setting the wheels in motion, by calling and checking whether you have the right to claim, you will have expert legal advice on what to do from there. We may advise you, for example, to keep receipts for expenses you have to pay out for as a result of your injuries – prescription charges, transport costs to and from the hospital, for instance. These are the kinds of things you can claim back when you bring a personal injury case.
We’ll also be able to advise you on what to do in terms of evidence and witnesses to the accident. While it’s best to bring your case while the details are still fresh in everyone’s minds, if you want to leave it a while before making your claim, you can jot down notes on what happened and who was around at the time. This will help your solicitor when you take your case forward.
