Or if you aren’t ready to talk to somebody about your accident just yet, then here are some answers to common FAQs asked by people who have had an accident in Redbridge before:
Am I eligible to make a claim?
You are eligible to make a claim for your accident in Redbridge if your date of limitation (the date your injury became clear) is less than 3 years ago. You only have 3 years from this date to make a claim. This can be extended in the case of some industrial diseases or if you have been treated under the Mental Health Act 1983. If you were a minor at the time, then you have 3 years from the date of your 18th birthday to bring a claim forward.
Is my case strong?
The strength of your case depends on a few things, chief of which is whether or not it is easy to ascertain who is liable for the accident. If this is easy, then you have a strong case. But if there are elements of your case that can be contested, it will be less so. Your solicitor will not take on a non-winner, though, so that should offer you some peace of mind.
How much can I claim?
How much compensation you are able to claim for your accident in Redbridge depends on the extent of your injuries, your recovery period and your prognosis for the future. In addition, if you are claiming special damages, then loss of earnings and out-of-pocket expenses will come into play. Compensation is made up of general and special damages.
How long will the claims process take?
Claims hardly ever take less than 6 months to process. Generally speaking, they take around 7 – 12 months. And if your claim is subject to contestation then this can be longer.
What happens if my claim loses?
Our solicitors all work on a no win, no fee basis. So if your claim loses then you will not have to pay your own lawyer’s fees. However, you may have to pay the other side’s legal costs, so no win, no fee does not necessarily mean you will not run up a bill of costs – this will always be clearly explained to you and it will be listed in your agreement.
