The team at Accident Advice Helpline are on hand to help you to determine whether or not you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Such a claim is often made after you have sustained a personal injury in an accident that was not your fault.
When you first contact us you will speak to one of our friendly and helpful advisers; however, it is important to note that they cannot provide you with accident legal advice in Oldham. This is because they are not legally trained but they can help you to determine what sort of claim you can make and whether our in house solicitors will be able to help you further with your case.
Finding out if you can claim
The first thing we need to know is if you meet the requirements to start a claim. These are usually pretty straight forward, for example, whether your accident left you with injuries that are serious enough to have warranted you seeking medical attention. If they were then there is every chance that you would be granted compensation as a result of a claim going in your favour.
The next thing we need to know is who is liable for your accident. This is important because a claim will need to be made against this person and therefore we will have to have the information required to start the process.
Finally when your accident happened is also important. This is because there is usually a three year time limit associated with claims being made. You can extend this if you were a minor at the time of your accident and therefore unable to make a claim sooner. If you want to find out more about this then you can speak to one of our advisers as they will have all the information that you need.
