Thinking of making an accident compensation claim in Bridgend?
After an accident in which you have been injured, naturally you wonder if you are able to claim compensation for your injuries. If you live in Bridgend, you may be eligible to file an accident compensation claim in Bridgend. In order to file one you must be able to prove that the accident was not your fault. You also have to prove that it was the fault of another person because of their negligence or reckless behaviour. If you think that you can prove these two points, then contact us at Accident Advice Helpline for help to file your potential claim.
Starting the process
If you contact us at Accident Advice Helpline, you can speak with one of our expert advisers who will be able to tell you if you have a claim to make. You can discuss the circumstances of your accident and your injuries. He or she will ask some questions and if you are eligible to make an accident compensation claim in Bridgend, the claim can be started over the phone. In fact, most claims can be processed in this way.
How long do you have to make a claim?
For accidents that occur in the British Isles, you usually have three years from their date to file a claim for compensation. This is not true for all accidents though. Sometimes you have to claim for injuries within months or lose the opportunity to do so. As you may be entitled to claim compensation, call us at Accident Advice Helpline now to start the claims’ process.
After any accident, when you are injured, you should seek and receive immediate medical treatment. Your medical records will prove that you did this. They also describe your injuries in detail and will be needed if you decide to proceed with a claim. They will provide the basis for calculations of how much compensation you might be awarded for the pain, distress and suffering caused you by your injuries. This is only one part of the total amount of compensation you could receive if your claim is successful.
If the police attended the scene of the accident, you will also need a copy of their accident report. This should prove that you were not responsible for the accident. It will also state the causes of it.
