You could be looking for an accident solicitor in Clydach because you’ve been in pretty much any kind of accident that caused you to get injured.
It doesn’t matter what kind of accident it was, and by this, we mean it could be a road traffic accident, a fall from a ladder, a faulty product accident – in fact, anything in which you got injured.
What does matter is whose fault it was, because if the accident in which you got injured was someone else’s fault, you could be eligible to claim compensation.
What happens if you’re eligible to claim
Being eligible means that you have the right to claim. It doesn’t mean that you will automatically be awarded compensation, but it does mean that an accident solicitor in Clydach can take on your case.
When you choose to claim through Accident Advice Helpline, your solicitor will work on your behalf, with the aim of securing you the payout that you deserve. They will do as much as they can for you – there’s usually no need at all for any of our claimants to attend court.
What you will need to do
If you’re going ahead with a claim, there’s one thing that we need you to do, and that is to take an additional medical assessment. The reason for this is, the payout you get (if your case is successfully settled) depends partly on the injuries – specifically, the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that you have experienced as a result.
We know that you have probably had more than enough medical care during the aftermath of your accident, and you’re quite fed up of seeing doctors. But the claim cannot proceed without this additional test, so it is well worth undergoing it.
Evidence is useful
This may seem obvious, but it’s useful for your accident solicitor in Clydach to have evidence of what happened to you – not only in terms of the injuries themselves, but also the financial trouble that has been caused.
When you are injured in an accident that isn’t your fault, you might find that you need to take some time off work to recover – and that could mean that you lose wages. In addition to this, you could need to pay for extra services just to keep everything ticking over – for example, a home help, or a childminder.
Don’t forget the prescription charges and the taxi fares, either! It’s interesting just how things can add up after just a couple of weeks of recovering from an injury – so keep all your receipts and give them to your accident solicitor in Clydach.
