When can I make an accident injury claim in Wandsworth?
It is often possible to make an accident injury claim in Wandsworth after an accident you weren’t to blame for. Someone else must have caused the accident through acting negligently or carelessly. You must also have sustained injuries that were severe enough to make medical treatment a necessity.
Usually, you have to make your claim within three years of the date on which the accident happened. There may be exceptions to this, though.
The kinds of accidents you can claim for include slips, trips and falls; accidents at work and industrial diseases; road traffic accidents (whether you were a driver, a passenger or pedestrian); and many more besides.
If you are not sure whether your accident qualifies for any reason, you can receive free legal advice when you call us at Accident Advice Helpline. Tell us briefly about what’s happened to you and we will give you our honest opinion on whether you could make a strong case for compensation. We’ll also give you some indication of the amount you could receive for the type and nature of the injuries inflicted on you.

Just as there is no charge for our advice, so there’s no charge upfront if you decide you want us to take your case further.

We’ll aim to get you a fair settlement for what you have suffered. As well as money to compensate for your injuries, you may also receive money to reimburse you for some of the financial costs of your accident. This can include everything from travel costs to and from medical appointments to loss of earnings or help with adjustments around the home if you can’t cope as you usually do.
If you have been disadvantaged because of someone else’s failure to fulfil their duty of care towards you, then you may well be entitled to make an accident injury claim in Wandsworth. Call us now for details on how we could help you claim.
