Following an accident, and after you have dusted yourself down, you may be thinking of a compensation claim. Claiming recompense for an accident which was somebody else’s fault is your right, and you should exercise it. Read on below to find out how to do it.
Local does not mean best
You may be tempted to stay local. An internet search for an accident solicitor in Abington may bring up a lot of results, but not every office has every subject area covered. You may well find your options being limited, or even your claim turned away completely because of the lack of experience in a given field. Instead of searching for an accident solicitor in Abington, try widening your net a little. Perusing the site of Accident Advice Helpline may be more effective.
What kinds of accidents are covered by our expert legal team? It would probably be faster to tell you what is not covered. Any accident that was brought about by any kind of negligence other than your own, or was preventable if easily actionable precautions were taken (but could not be reasonably expected to be done by you yourself), is covered.
You could be a little hesitant about the whole process, but if you were injured and it was not your fault then there is some liability somewhere. It is somebody’s fault, and surely you deserve recompense for the pain suffered because of someone else’s mistake?
Making a Claim Is Easy
Getting started is really straightforward. There is the 30-second test to see if you qualify and how much you could win, and there is also a claim form on the site for you to use at your leisure (again, this should take less than a minute). If you prefer to call and speak to an advisor to get more information, then you can do that too if you wish. The contact details are 0800 689 0500 (free and open 24/7), or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
Advice is always free and you are under no obligation to continue with a claim at this point in the process. If you do decide to move forward, then the no-win, no-fee rules apply and you pay absolutely nothing if the claim does not win for any reason.
There is very little chance of you appearing in court too, so you needn’t worry about the possibility of having to face the other party at any point. In fact, the only inconvenience that could come about is a one-off medical test. This will only happen, though, if it is felt that the courts would require some form of medical evidence.
