If you are thinking about using the services of accident lawyers in Melton, then you probably have a hundred different questions running through your mind. In this post we aim to answer some of the most common questions. So, keep on reading to discover everything you need to know.
Answers to your questions
Will I have to go to court? It is highly unlikely. In fact, did you know that fewer than three per cent of personal injury cases result in a trial? It is in the interest of both parties, and your accident lawyers in Melton, to resolve everything as quickly and smoothly as possible and therefore a lot of cases are actually handled over the phone.
How long do I have to make a claim? The time limit on personal injury claims is three years. This means that you will have three years from the date of the incident and court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. The only exceptions are those situations where the injury has developed over time, such as hearing loss. In these cases, you will have three years from the date of diagnosis instead.
Do I need to see a doctor to claim? The simple answer to this question is yes. You will find it virtually impossible to locate any accident lawyers in Melton that will take on your claim if you have not seen a medical professional, as the medical report is a central piece of evidence. It documents your injuries and the advised treatment and this is imperative when determining how much compensation you will be entitled to.
I have no money to make a claim… Is there anything I can do? You should opt for a lawyer that offers a no win no fee service. By doing this, you won’t need to make a huge upfront payment to get the ball rolling. Moreover, the financial risk to you is diminished substantially, as you will only have to pay legal fees if your case is a success.
