What are personal injury claims?
If you suffered an accident in the Hexham area within the last 3 years and your injuries were the result of somebody else’s negligence, you are entitled to claim compensation.
The defendant denies liability
- Your solicitor will advise you whether it is worth starting legal action or not. In order to challenge the defendant’s “no liability claim”, you must ask the court to award you compensation.
- Your accident solicitor Hexham will tell you that your case will be passed to a judge who will determine the timetable of when your case will be heard. You will hear from the court, when the date has been set for your hearing and your solicitor will prepare you for that day.
- Don’t be put off by the thought of court attendance; your accident solicitor Hexham will handle all legal paperwork for you and will talk you through the process, so you’ll know in detail what to expect on the day of the hearing.
- Essentially, all you have to do is turn up and wait for the judgment. You will find out if your case is successful how much compensation you will receive.
Since Accident Advice Helpline, was founded in 2000, their legal partners have provided thousands of claimants with access to justice and compensation for their suffering and injuries. Their patron Esther Rantzen is best known as the UK’s champion and campaigner for consumer rights, but she has long been involved with the promotion of the Accident Advice Helpline’s services.
She calls it a “no fuss” service and advises victims of non-fault accidents to at least call free to find out if they qualify – seven out of ten accident victims never make that call and so never find out if compensation could have helped them through the difficult time of recovery – not just in health but also financially after a long absence from work. Compensation was designed to help with expenses such as private medical care or specialist equipment like electric wheelchairs or hiring home care.
