If you’ve been hurt in an accident in Northamptonshire, then you will probably have lots of questions to ask about claiming compensation. We have a 24-hour helpline staffed by knowledgeable advisors who will be able to help answer those questions, but we have also compiled a list of our most frequently asked questions to help you decide if you are entitled to compensation, and if you should use Accident Advice Helpline to handle your claim.
Q. What counts as a personal injury?
A. Any injury or illness. We have claimed compensation for people with broken bones, long-term back pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, asbestosis, Legionnaires’ and Weil’s diseases, whiplash, hearing and eyesight problems, and many more.
Q. I was injured in a road accident in Northamptonshire, but I don’t have personal injury cover on my insurance. Can you still help?
A. Yes, absolutely. Wherever or however your accident took place, we can help providing:
- Your accident in Northamptonshire was caused by someone else; and
- Your accident in Northamptonshire took place within the last three years.
Q. Will I have to attend a medical?
A. It is possible you will have to attend a medical. This is so a neutral medical professional can assess your injuries for the claim. This is a formality and is nothing for you to worry about.
Q. Will I have to attend court?
A. It’s possible, but the majority of our claims are settled out of court. Our lawyers are personal injury specialists who work their hardest to get you the maximum amount of compensation, while keeping your input to minimum. We can’t make any promises, but it is most likely your claim will be dealt with exclusively over the phone.
Q. How much compensation will I receive?
A. That depends on the nature of your accident in Northamptonshire and the extent of your injuries. Every claim is different, because we all lead very different lives so our injuries affect us in different ways. For a rough estimate of how much you are owed after your accident in Northamptonshire, you can check our compensation calculator online at www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
Q. Do your solicitors work for no win no fee?
A. Yes, because we know from experience that many of our customers are already feeling the strain financially, in most cases because they have had to take time off work. Because of the no win no fee policy, there is no need for you to worry about losing any more money, and because our solicitors don’t get paid until you do, you can be 100 per cent confident that he or she will work their hardest to make your claim a successful one.
