Starting an accident compensation claim in Lambeth
Starting an accident compensation claim in Lambeth might be a lot easier than you think. First of all contact us at Accident Advice Helpline. You can speak with one of our claims’ experts and discuss your reasons for believing that you have personal injury compensation claim to file.
Tell the adviser how your accident happened and when, and describe your injuries. He or she will be able to tell you if you have good grounds for making a claim or not. If you do have grounds on which to base a claim, you can begin the claims’ process over the phone, without having to go to a lawyer’s office. At least, most claims can be processed over the phone. What could be easier?
How long do I have to file my potential claim?
If your accident happened in the British Isles, you generally have three years from its date to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, it is best to check this as soon as you can with us at Accident Advice Helpline. There are always exceptions to rules and your claim might be one. Sometimes you must claim for injuries within months of an accident rather than years.
If the deadline for filing a claim passes, it is difficult to file the claim. To do so you would have to be able to prove that there had been exceptional circumstances which had prevented you from doing so before.
What documents will I have to produce?
Your medical records are needed because they describe your injuries in detail. They will be used to work out how much compensation you should receive for your pain, distress and suffering. This compensation comes in the category of general damages, but you can also be awarded special damages.
If the police were at the scene of your accident, you will also need their accident report.
Pay slips will also be needed if you intend to claim for loss of earnings.
If you took photographs of the accident scene and your injuries, these can be used in supporting evidence for your claim.
