Are you looking to make a claim for compensation? If so, you will have many questions, but you may be unsure where to find the answer.
The internet has revolutionised our lives but there are some basic issues with the information that we sometimes come across online. Quite simply, it may not be correct. Or, since its publication, there may have been changes to laws, rules and regulations, etc., that renders the information obsolete.
It pays to be cautious when accessing information and thus, there is no better way of finding out about making an accident and injury claim in Ashfield than by calling Accident Advice Helpline.
Is there an obligation to proceed?
We understand that people worry about calling a law firm to seek information for two reasons: they may be asked to pay for it and secondly, they may be obligated to carry on with a claim.
When you call us, there are no such issues. We understand that the key thing needed for you to make the right decision is information. Knowing everything beforehand – the pitfalls and so on – will mean that you can make the right decision for you and your family.
Making an accident and injury claim in Ashfield: the facts
There are several key facts to making a compensation claim:
- You need to know beforehand if you are eligible
Anyone can potentially claim compensation, but not all cases are valid and thus, your case needs to be measured against the criteria laid down in personal injury law. You can find out more by calling us or using the 30-second test which you will find on the home page of our website.
- The accident must not have been your fault
Accidents happen all the time but not all are the basis for making an accident and injury claim in Ashfield. In essence, the accident in which you were hurt must not have been your fault.
- You have three years within which to claim
This deadline starts counting down from the time it can be reasonably assumed the accident was the cause of your injuries. In the majority of cases, this is the date of the accident but it can vary. If you are unsure, call us.
- Injuries will need to be assessed
The moment you read this, you may have thought that this point was to catch you out, but it is not! The smallest of injuries can have the biggest of impacts, and can affect you for the rest of your life. As a result, the compensation awarded needs to be at the right level.
