Although it is possible to manage your own compensation claim following an accident that was not your fault, you can increase your chances of success by enlisting the services of professional accident management companies UK such as Accident Advice Helpline (AAH).
Why should I use accident management companies in the UK?
Your personal injury compensation claim needs to be made within three years of the date of your accident. In practice, you need to start taking action sooner than the three-year deadline because there will be some preparatory work to do before you can start your compensation claim. In fact, you should start your claim as soon as possible because otherwise there is a chance that your witnesses’ memories will start to fade.
This means that you may need to work on your compensation claim while you are still injured. Using accident management companies in the UK can reduce the stress you are under at this tricky time.
In addition, because they are experts at dealing with personal injury compensation claims, accident management companies in the UK such as AAH understand the process for making a personal injury compensation claim and can explain the legal jargon that can sometimes be involved to you. This means that your claim will not fail because you made a mistake on a legal technicality, or because you did not understand what was being asked of you.
How do I know whether I have a valid claim?
You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking the unique 30-second online test at Accident Advice Helpline website. Alternatively, you can talk to the friendly and professional staff who man AAH’s phone helpdesk on freephone number 0800 689 0500 – or from your mobile 0333 500 0993 – 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
How do I make a personal injury compensation claim?
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you should speak to accident management companies in the UK such as AAH as soon as possible to avoid the risk of your claim being time barred by the three-year limit mentioned above.
AAH will gather together all of the information relating to the accident, including witness statements where appropriate, and then present your compensation claim to the person who was responsible for the accident.
You may need to attend a medical assessment to determine the extent of your injuries. However, you will not usually need to attend any meetings because most claims can be dealt with by phone. Most people are not required to attend court.
