You are seeking advice from an accident lawyer. What do you need to know about your compensation claim and how to get started? Here are some of the top questions we get asked.
How do I choose the right accident lawyer in Cheltenham for my case?
You can trawl the net and do a bunch of research, or you can ask us. Accident Advice Helpline has experts in all areas of personal injury law. If you need an accident lawyer in Cheltenham, our in house lawyers are here to help you with your compensation claim. We take your details and ask you to tell us about your accident and how your injuries happened, and we will be able to tell you if you may have a valid claim.
What qualifies as a valid claim?
Three conditions must be met. These are:
- You are claiming within three years of being injured in the accident
- You needed medical treatment
- Your accident was not your fault, but due to someone else’s actions or negligence
You can check for yourself using our 30-second test. Did you answer yes to all three questions? Run through the compensation calculator to see how much cash you could be paid, if your accident lawyer wins your case.
How much compensation will I get?
Each case is individual and the amount of the award will depend on the calculation for your type of injury, your pain and suffering, and expenses you have run up because of being injured. These include domestic support, personal care, child care, additional transport, and in some cases, loss of income is considered. Make sure your accident lawyer has all the documentation for the money you have spent out.

How long will I have to wait for my money?
Again, it depends how long the process takes to reach agreement in your case. Most claimants and defendants settle out of court. If this happens, the offer is formally set out in a Part 36 Offer to Settle letter and once both parties have agreed to this, then your accident lawyer will pay out your money quickly, usually within days.
