FAQ when hiring accident lawyers in Amber Valley
Are you thinking about pursuing a compensation claim with accident lawyers in Amber Valley? Have you been injured as the result of a road traffic accident? Whether you were a passenger in the vehicle that caused the crash or someone else crashed into you, Accident Advice Helpline can help to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. If you are looking for accident lawyers in Amber Valley, our lawyers are some of the best you will find. But first, let’s answer some of the most common questions that come from people in a similar position to you…
How do I know if I have a case? You will need to prove that someone else is responsible for your suffering. You certainly cannot make a claim if you caused the crash and are solely responsible for you injuries. Aside from this, you must have seen a doctor for your injuries, as there needs to be a medical report that documents your injuries and the recommended course of treatment. This is used to determine how much compensation you will be rewarded.
How long do I have to make a claim? You have three years from the date of the incident. So if you are in a car crash on 4th November 2016 you will have until the 4th of November 2019 to make your claim. Nevertheless, it is better to make your claim as quickly as possible. The details will be fresh in your mind and it will be easier to gather evidence, such as witness statements.
Will I have to go to court? It is unlikely that you will have to go to court. In fact, less than three per cent of personal injury cases end up going to trial. Of course there are no guarantees, but our aim will be to get the case wrapped up as quickly and smoothly as possible.
How much compensation will I get? This is calculated based on your injuries and the impact they are going to have on your life. You will also receive special damages. This is to compensate you for any costs relating to the injury, such as medical treatments and loss of income.
