Perhaps you live in Hartley Wintney, or are visiting that part of Hampshire and have sustained a personal injury in an accident that was not your fault. You could be looking for the telephone numbers of an accident solicitor locally, or you may be tapping away at your PC’s keyboard trying to find an online accident solicitor for Hartley Wintney.
Claiming compensation for injuries
You are not entitled to receive legal aid for accident compensation claims as you will be informed if you ring your local Citizen’s Advice Bureau. If you can’t afford the legal fees to pursue a claim, then you should consider using the services of a no win-no fee solicitor, so that at the end of the case you will not be out of pocket and have to pay legal fees if you lose. A no win-no fee solicitor has an incentive to win your case for you.
What injuries can I claim for?
You can claim compensation for any injuries which were sustained in an accident that was caused by another person or by another person’s negligence. You might have lacerations and bruising or whiplash (one of the most common injuries sustained in a car crash) or a more severe and traumatic injury such as brain damage or damage to the spinal cord. As long as you were not to blame for the accident, you have a case to make a compensation claim.
You may have slipped, tripped or fallen somewhere outside your home; these are the most common accidents. However, the site of your fall belongs to someone or some organization, and you can claim compensation from the owners if they have not maintained the site well.
How long will a compensation case take?
That depends on whether you receive a reasonable offer of a settlement after 14 days of your solicitor writing a letter to the person or persons responsible for the accident. If the offer of compensation is reasonable then you can accept it and settle out of court, or your solicitor can negotiate a better deal for you. You can also decide to take court action and let a judge decide on the amount of compensation you are entitled to. This may take some time, and you could receive an interim payment to help you through a financially difficult time. This will be deducted from the final settlement.
