If you have queries about your rights when it comes to personal injury accident claims in South Staffordshire, you’re not alone.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we help award over £30 million a year in damages to people that have been hurt through no fault of their own. If you’ve been injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another party, you too could be entitled to make a compensation claim. Read on to find out more about your rights after an accident, and how our law firm can help you act upon them.
Can anyone make accident claims in South Staffordshire?
Under UK law, you can make a compensation claim if you have been hurt in an accident caused by someone else’s neglect within the past three years. You can make a claim for injuries sustained in workplace or road traffic accidents, and even accidents that occur in public places or on holiday. As long as you weren’t at fault and can prove someone else’s actions are the cause of your suffering, you deserve to be remunerated accordingly.
Can I make a claim on someone else’s behalf?
It can often be the case that those that are owed compensation cannot claim it themselves. For example, if a victim has sustained a head injury and is suffering with loss of speech or memory, you could make a claim for this injury. You could also make a claim if you have lost a loved one in a fatal accident, or if you were involved in a road traffic accident with your children in the car.
How much does it cost to work with a personal injury solicitor?
Accident Advice Helpline lawyers undertake cases on a no win, no fee basis. This means there is nothing payable upfront to start a claim, so you don’t have to worry about parting with a deposit to secure the services of a personal injury lawyer.
What is a claims management company?
Unlike a law firm, a claims management company is essentially a middleman acting as a go-between for the victim and lawyer handling the case. Accident Advice Helpline is a full service, nationwide law firm, so we handle absolutely every claim we undertake in house using our own network of specialised personal injury solicitors.
How much do you get in compensation?
The amount awarded in a compensation payout will vary depending on a number of factors, but many of our claimants have received thousands of pounds. The fastest and easiest way to get a rough idea of what you could be owed is to log on and use our simple thirty-second claims calculator.
