When you go through the pain and distress of an accident your immediate thoughts turn towards your recovery and how long it will take to get back on your feet and to some kind of ‘normality.’ Physiotherapy and rest might be at the top of the list in the recovery process, but accident legal advice in Powys can also be an important and beneficial component.
Obviously, the physical and emotional injuries require the most treatment – and rightly so. You need to make sure that you get the care and procedures that you need to start the healing process, and it’s vital that you don’t overlook the emotional factors.
It’s easy to get carried away with the physical injuries that are clear to the naked eye, but the emotional side of the injury can affect the recovery time. If you’re worried about getting back to work, paying the bills and how you’re going to help around the house, you’re not going to be focussing on your recovery.
Why accident legal advice in Powys can help
At least by getting accident legal advice in Powys you can talk to a friendly and experienced lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline so that you can find out if you may or may not be entitled to claim for compensation.
This way you can talk it through with your friends and family, and our lawyers, and reach a decision that you are happy with so that you can put it to the back of your mind, forget all about it or set the wheels in motion while you rest and recover from the accident.
Even if you end up choosing not to pursue a claim, at least you can find out if you might be eligible to make one. You don’t even have anything to lose as we work on a 100% no-win no-fee basis on all claims. You are under no obligation to go through with a claim just because you’ve either spoken to us or taken our free online test.
The test takes 30-seconds to complete and all you have to do to check your eligibility is answer a few simple questions about the accident and how you’ve been affected.
What’s more, you have up to three years from the date of the accident in which to make your claim, and this means that you have plenty of time to consider your options.
Making your no-win no-fee claim
If you make the decision to go ahead with a claim for compensation then we will assign a solicitor specifically to your case. They will explain the process and answer any questions that you might have, along with informing you of any vital evidence that might be needed to support your claim such as a medical assessment.
In addition to this they will provide you with an estimate on the minimum and maximum potential payout that you might receive, with each settlement reflecting the severity of the accident and injuries sustained as opposed to a standard sum for certain injuries.
This is to ensure that every claimant gets exactly what they are entitled to, with various factors considered including the recovery process, the treatment received and any on-going rehabilitation and the financial and lifestyle implications of the accident.
If you would like any further accident legal advice or if you have any questions at all for one of our solicitors, don’t hesitate to get in touch by calling 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
