Advice is something that we seek on numerous occasions. Medical advice, interior design advice and legal advice are just three wildly different examples. But, they are all important at some point or another.
There are times when we think we may never need to seek help on some topics, such as accident legal advice in Purbeck. It is a sad fact that accidents happen. When they do, people can be hurt.
When someone is hurt – like you – they are left with many unanswered questions, one of which may be, can I claim compensation?

Making a claim – what you MUST know
Personal injury law is the law that covers how and when compensation claims can be made. There are three critical factors that must all be present in order for a claim to have a high chance of success:
- The accident must have been caused by someone else
Accidents happen for all kinds of reasons but, in this case, the accident must not have been caused by you.
This is because the person at fault or liable for the accident will also be responsible for your injuries. If you are unsure who this is – for example, you may have been hurt at a public event – this is something that we can investigate.
- Your injuries will need to be medically assessed
Many people will seek medical help and treatment after being hurt and this is an important step. It confirms the nature, type and severity of your injuries. We will need this information we will need to be able to give you an indication of not only eligibility to claim, but how much you could be entitled to.
- You are claiming within three years
There is a deadline of three years within which time you must lodge your complaint for compensation.
