Are you looking for an accident solicitor in Greater Manchester? If so, there are a few things you should know about before you go ahead with a claim.
Are you eligible to claim?
If your accident has been caused by someone else, and you got injured as a result, you could be eligible to claim compensation. If you caused the accident, or you weren’t injured, then you won’t qualify for compensation.
You need to make sure you have medical evidence of your injury or injuries, and you can check your eligibility for yourself if you like – simply go to the Accident Advice Helpline website and take the 30 second test.
Did the accident happen within the last three years?
If your accident happened more than three years ago, you won’t be able to claim unless you were a minor when the accident happened, or you’re claiming for an industrial disease (e.g. an asbestos-related illness brought about by repeated exposure to the dangerous substance at work).
You need a no win no fee* accident solicitor in Greater Manchester
Since there are no guarantees that claims for personal injury will be settled in your favour, you need to choose a law firm that works on a no win no fee* basis.
Accident Advice Helpline’s solicitors all work in this way, so you will have peace of mind in the event that your claim is unsuccessful.
You will need to take another medical test
We understand that you have probably paid several visits to your doctor or to hospital, and we know how stressful that can be. But unfortunately, in order for the claim to proceed, you will need to attend another medical assessment.
You probably won’t have to go to court
Whilst it may be stressful going for a medical test, you can take some comfort from the fact that it’s highly unlikely you’ll have to go to court. Most claims can be settled out of court, so you don’t have to worry about making an appearance – just let your solicitor sort everything out on your behalf!
