Questions answered about accident lawyers in Maidstone
If you are thinking about using the services of accident lawyers in Maidstone, you will undoubtedly have plenty of questions running through your mind. After all, you have hopefully never found yourself in this position before. Keeping that in mind, continue reading to discover the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions that accident lawyers in Maidstone cover.
Can I make a claim? There are three things you need to look at when determining whether you should use the services of accident lawyers in Maidstone. The first thing you need to do is be able to prove that someone else is responsible for the incident. You must have also seen a doctor for your injuries, as the medical report is the most crucial piece of evidence. Finally, it is crucial that the incident happened within the last three years, as this is the time limit on almost all personal injury cases. There are some exceptions, however, such as injuries that occur over time, such as repetitive strain injury and vibration white finger.
Will I have to go to court? It is highly unlikely. In fact, did you know that more than 97 per cent of personal injury cases are handled outside of the courtroom? It is in the interest of both parties to get the case wrapped up as quickly and as smoothly as possible.
How much will it cost? This is dependant on your case and the solicitor you utilise. However, if you use the services of no win no fee accident lawyers in Maidstone or elsewhere then you will only pay legal fees if your case is a success. This reduces monetary risk by a significant degree.
Will my employer fire me if I make a claim against him/her? This is something a lot of people worry about, but there really is no need to be concerned. If you have been injured and your employer is at fault they will realise that they need to compensate you and they will have insurance in place to cover this. If they were to fire you they would only put themselves in a more precarious position, as you would then have grounds for unfair dismissal.
How do I make a claim? This is the easy part. All you need to do is give Accident Advice Helpline a call and we will handle everything for you.
