Enduring the stress of a personal injury or accident can be very difficult, requiring the support of family and friends as you come to terms with your change in circumstances. For some, your injury will have caused only minor inconvenience, whereas for others, it may have been life-altering. Regardless of the severity of the accident, there is no underestimating the difficulties you may face as a result as well as the emotions you will have to contend with. Making a claim should not be put to the bottom of your priority list as a result of your stress; it is important that you are compensated for your injury, and a basic understanding of the accident claims process can help you relieve the anxiety sometimes associated with making a claim.
The accident claims process is made simple and straightforward by Accident Advice Helpline, offering you peace of mind that your case is being handled in an open and honest way, and with minimum input from you.
What is the basic accident claims process?
The first step in the accident claims process is determining your eligibility 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?
To help confirm your eligibility, there are a range of useful online tools available to you. Accident Advice Helpline has an online 30-second calculator, which is able to tell you within half a minute whether you are eligible to make a claim, as well as calculating your estimated compensation amount based on the average amount received by others.
