Four things you may not know about making an accident claim:
- There is a three year time limit – Many people are shocked to discover that there is actually a three-year time limit on all claims. This means you have three years from the date of the accident to make your claim. Nonetheless, if the injury in question has developed over time, such as vibration white finger, you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis.
- You must see a doctor in order to claim – If you have suffered a minor injury you still need to make sure you see a medical professional if you want to have a chance of making an accident claim in Rushcliffe. You cannot expect to get compensation if you do not have proof from a specialist. This is vital evidence for your case.
- Compensation is split into two parts – Compensation is actually split into two parts. Firstly, you have general damages. This is the money you will receive for the injury you have suffered. This is calculated based on the severity of it and the impact it is having on your life. Nonetheless, you also have special damages. This is the compensation you will get for any out of pocket expenses you have suffered because of your injuries, such as treatment expenses and travel costs. Don’t forget to keep proof of these and let us have copies.
- You don’t need money to begin your claim – One of the main reasons why so many people do not make an accident claim in Rushcliffe when they would have been entitled to compensation is because they do not have the money to make a claim. However, you don’t actually need any cash to start the process if you go for a no win no fee solicitor. All of our solicitors work on this no win no fee basis.
