What you need to know about accident lawyers
From slips and trips to workplace accidents, there are many different situations that can leave people needing the services of accident lawyers in Gwersyllt. If you find yourself in this position, read on to discover what you need to know about claiming for compensation.
Four points about claiming compensation
There is a time limit – A lot of people are shocked to discover that there is a time limit on all personal injury cases. This limit is three years. The last thing you want to do is miss out on compensation because you left it too late. The three years begins from the date of the incident and court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. Nonetheless, if your injury has developed over time – such as hearing loss – then you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.
Compensation is split into two parts – There are special damages and general damages. General damages are designed to compensate you for your injuries and your suffering. However, special damages will compensate you for any out of pocket expenses you have incurred as a direct result of your injuries. Your accident lawyers in Gwersyllt will include everything from loss of income to prescription costs.
You need to see a doctor – If you have suffered a minor injury it may be tempting to deal with the injury yourself. However, if you do this you will find it virtually impossible to claim with accident lawyers in Gwersyllt. You need to see a doctor because the medical report is the most important piece of evidence in any compensation claim.
You don’t need money to begin your claim – If you go for a no-win, no-fee solicitor you actually do not need to make an upfront payment to begin the claim process. At Accident Advice Helpline all of our accident lawyers work on a no win no fee basis. This also reduces financial risk because you will only pay legal fees if your case is a success.
