Wherever you live in Kent, be it Canterbury, Folkestone, Ashford or elsewhere, if you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault but that of another person, then you may be entitled to make an accident compensation claim in Kent.
Why not contact us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you really do have a valid claim to make?
Eligibility for making an accident compensation claim in Kent
Apart from having to prove that you were not responsible for your accident and that someone else was to blame for it because of their negligence or recklessness, you should also be able to prove that you had medical treatment for your injuries as soon as was possible after the accident. Your medical records will prove that you did this.
If the police were called to the accident scene, for example if you were injured in a road traffic accident, they will have investigated its causes. When they are satisfied that they know how and why it happened, they will compile an accident report. This will be needed if you proceed with an accident compensation claim in Kent. It should prove that you were not at fault and lay the blame elsewhere.
How much compensation will I get?
Your medical records are also needed when you make a claim for personal injury. They describe your injuries in detail and so they will inform any decision regarding the amount of compensation you should receive for your pain, distress and suffering and loss of amenity if applicable.
You can receive payment as compensation for loss of amenity, or loss of quality of life, if you can no longer do something, perhaps a sport or hobby, that you enjoyed doing before your accident.
You can also receive compensation for any expenses you incurred solely because of your injury. These might be medical expenses for care and treatment as well as prescription charges and so on. The idea is that you will not be worse off financially because of your accident.
No one can tell you just how much you might receive in compensation if your claim is successful, but if you take our 30 Second Test, you will get a rough estimate of the amount you could receive if your claim is successful. Then perhaps you will be encouraged to contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.
