    Are you thinking about making a compensation claim with accident lawyers in Somerset? If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you will undoubtedly have a number of questions running through your mind. Keeping that in mind, read on to discover more about some of the most frequently asked questions regarding accident lawyers in Somerset.

    Frequently Asked Questions for accident lawyers in Somerset

    How long do I have to make a claim? You have three years from the date of the accident to make a claim and court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. The only exceptions relate to incidents where the injuries occur over time, which is usually the case when it comes to workplace incidents – such as industrial deafness and vibration white finger, in which case you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.

    I don’t have enough money to make a claim. Is there anything else I can do? You should look for the services of no win no fee accident lawyers in Somerset. If you go down this route you will not need to make a huge upfront payment in order to start the claim process, as you perhaps would if you went for the services of a solicitor that charged per hour.

    Will I have to go to court? You will be pleased to know that it is highly unlikely that your personal injury claim will result in a trial. In fact, over 97 per cent of court cases are resolved outside of the courtroom. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we make an effort to resolve cases over the phone when possible.

    Can I make a claim without seeing a doctor? Unfortunately, the answer to this is quite simply no. You need to see a medical professional, as the report they provide is vital to the case. It is necessary to determine how much compensation you will get, as it will serve as proof to the injuries you have suffered.
