Perhaps a close relative has been involved in an accident for which they could not be blamed and have catastrophic or life-changing injuries. There could be brain damage or damage to the spinal cord, injuries sustained in an accident that was someone else’s fault.
You need to file a compensation claim for any personal injury within three years of the date of the accident. The sooner you file a claim after the accident the better, as it takes time for an accident solicitor in Hindon or elsewhere to collect and collate all the information necessary to make a successful compensation claim for a client.
Because it takes time to build a case for compensation in such cases, you can apply for an interim payment to take care of expenses so that you do not have financial difficulties because of the accident.
Accident Solicitor in Hindon
An accident solicitor firm or any other accident solicitor will need to have access to medical records, and will need to discover what support the patient will require in the future.
If a claim for compensation is successful you can claim for medical expenses already incurred and those expected in the future. Such expenses will include care, whether that care is given by a health professional or by a family member. Compensation will also cover the expense of adapting the accident victim’s home so that it suits his/her new needs. There may also be costs of equipment and a rehabilitation programme and the fees charged by a case manager. The compensation can also provide for the expenses of a reasonable number of visits to the patient by family members.
How is compensation paid?
Compensation may be paid in a lump sum or you could have a lump sum plus more payments given over a specified period of time.
An accident solicitor in Hindon based or elsewhere, will give you advice about what benefits you might be able to claim from the DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) as well as what services your local authority has which can benefit you. They can also give you the names and addresses of support groups in your area and in the UK generally.
