Things you need to ask your accident solicitor in Blundellsands
Or any accident solicitor you work with. The more informed you are, the better. The probability is high that this is the first personal injury claim that you are filing in your life, so it’s ok if you don’t know much about the subject. Nowadays, in western civilization, we are constantly bombarded with information that we have to very quickly sort out and process. And it’s obvious that you won’t go around learning about things that are useless to you. Until they are not useless anymore. After being injured in an accident, most people spend hours and hours online, surprised to find so many websites and articles on the subject. It is a whole world and there are many details that are hard to grasp on a first look.
That’s why it’s good to choose your legal adviser carefully. As much as you inform yourself, you will never be able to top the expertise and experience of a professional.
First things first
But before going so far in the subtleties of personal injury claims, you should first find out if you qualify to make one. If you ask an accident solicitor in Blundellsands, they will tell you that there are two things you should be looking at:
- When the accident happened. After suffering a personal injury, you have a time frame of three years to file a claim. If the claimant takes longer and exceeds this time frame, he/she loses the right to file the claim. This time window applies to most types of accidents, with a few exceptions: if the victim was a minor at the time of the accident or if the injury qualifies as an industrial disease.
- Who was to blame for the accident. If you got injured out of your own fault, then there’s nothing you can really do about it in terms of claims. Unless you want to go against yourself, which wouldn’t make a lot of sense, of course. But it’s different if someone else was to blame. The law protects everyone that has been hurt because of someone else’s fault, so if somebody else was to blame for your injury, be they a person, a company or a public institution, you’re entitled to claim against them and ask for the compensation that’s rightfully yours.
So if you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault and you need an accident solicitor in Blundellsands or anywhere in the UK, contact Accident Advice Helpline and start your claim now. You can call us or take the 30-second online test.
