Whether you are in Kilburn London, Derbyshire or North Yorkshire you could be looking for an injury claim law firm if you were injured in a non-fault accident and you are wondering if you could start making an accident claim in Kilburn.
Who is eligible for making an accident claim in Kilburn?
Any casualty of an injury that was not their fault is entitled under English Law to make an injury claim against the person or organisation responsible. Companies are required to have employers liability insurance to insure their staff and public organisations must have public liability insurance. A person who thinks a third party is responsible for their injuries can bring a claim and will win a compensation award if the solicitor wins their case.
What types of accidents are covered?
At Accident Advice Helpline we have solicitors who are expert in various specialist areas of compensation claim. These include:
- Road traffic accidents
- Work-related accidents and illnesses
- Clinical negligence
- Sporting accidents or accidents and illnesses on holiday
- Slips, trips and falls
How does the claims process work?
Initially you need to gather the information to support your case; you must be able to prove it, to find out if you have a valid claim. Our 30-second online test will tell you this or you can call our professional advisory team and they’ll do it for you. They’re available on 0800 689 0500, or on 0333 500 0993 (from a mobile). They’ll also tell you how much your compensation could be worth, if your solicitor takes your case and wins. This figure will be an estimate, since it is up to the court to decide the final amount.
To start making an accident claim in Kilburn, all you have to do is instruct us, give us the details and we’ll complete the forms for you. You’ll need to check and sign them and get them back to us. You should expect to have an independent medical examination, but remember also to have your original medical report handy and any other relevant documents to support your case.
Do you have to go to court?
The majority of cases are settled remotely these days. Provided the defendant accepts liability and if you accept the offer made, your injury claim could be settled quickly and easily. The cases that go to court are usually the disputed ones, or where the medical case is complicated and maybe future needs must be considered if a full recovery by the casualty is not expected.
