If you’ve had an accident that caused you to sustain injury, you could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident lawyer in Weymouth and Portland.
What kinds of accident qualify?
Any accident that was caused by someone else and in which you got injured will qualify you to claim compensation.
If you wish, you can check your eligibility to claim through an accident lawyer in Weymouth and Portland by going to Accident Advice Helpline’s website and taking the 30 second test.
This will give you your answer very quickly, as the name of the test suggests. Once you’ve done that, why not get an estimate of the value of your claim by using the free compensation calculator?
‘No win, no fee’ service
Although we can give you an estimate of what you might win, we can’t actually guarantee that you will win your case. Not all eligible cases result in a successful settlement – but for this reason, our accident lawyer in Weymouth and Portland will work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
What happens if you do win your case
Successful claims result in payouts, of course – and these payouts are determined by the pain, suffering and loss of amenity you have experienced, as well as the expenses that you have incurred as a result of your accident.
That’s why it’s important to keep your receipts. If you pay for something you wouldn’t normally need, keep the receipt and file it away. Do this for childminding fees, home help fees, prescription charges and taxi fares – and anything else that may be relevant.
In fact, why not put together a file? Keep your receipts alongside your medical records, your diary of how you’ve been coping with your injury, and any photographs of the accident scene. All of this will help your accident lawyer in Weymouth and Portland.
