Have you been injured in an accident within the last three years? Was the accident someone else’s fault? If so, you could be eligible to claim compensation – and an accident solicitor in Hammersmith and Fulham could help you.
Why three years?
There is a time limit of three years from the date of the accident for people to make a claim – provided, of course, the accident led to injury and it was caused by someone else.
You can check your eligibility to claim right now, if you like, by taking Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test, which is available on our website.
There are exceptions to the three-year rule
If you’re thinking about making a claim through an accident solicitor in Hammersmith and Fulham and you’re worried that you might be out of time, don’t worry, because there are some cases in which the limit is extended.
Claims for industrial disease have an extended time limit, because it isn’t possible to pinpoint the date of onset for an industrial disease. If you worked in an environment in which you were exposed to hazardous chemicals for many years, and you now have cancer as a result, you could be eligible to claim.
Also, if you had an accident but you were a minor at the time, you could still claim after the three-year deadline has expired.
Our advisers will tell you if you can claim
The best thing to do is call Accident Advice Helpline and speak to one of our friendly, professional advisers. They will listen to what you have to say, and tell you whether you qualify to claim compensation through an accident solicitor in Hammersmith and Fulham.
If you are eligible to claim, they will take your details and pass them on to one of the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline, who all work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
Getting your payout
If you win your case, you will receive a payout that comprises a sum of money for the pain and suffering that you have endured because of the accident and injury, and another sum for any expenses you have incurred.
Such expenses may include home help fees, taxi fares, prescription charges and a whole range of other things that you wouldn’t normally have to consider.
