Making a compensation claim has become a popular pastime it would seem, and the whole industry has suffered at the hands of some of its more less than honest claimants. The simple fact is that the number of compensation claims being made through your usual accident solicitor in Normanton has risen dramatically in recent years, partly because of improved exposure but also because it is being made easy for people to claim.
If you have suffered an accident that was not your fault then you may need to consider making a claim yourself. If you wish to make a claim, Accident Advice Helpline may well have an excellent choice of solicitors for you, but before you proceed to approach one do you really understand the requirements behind the compensation claim process?
What you need to make a claim with an accident solicitor in Normanton
So, what do you need exactly to pursue a successful compensation claim? Well firstly, you must be able to answer yes to all of the following three questions:
- Was the accident within the last three years? Some work-related cases can be allowed outside this time, but these are subject to different boundaries.
- Did you suffer personal injury, either mental or physical, as a result?
- Was the accident someone else’s fault?
Number three is perhaps the most important question on the list. We all have accidents, but we cannot make a personal injury claim against ourselves. If you can answer yes to all three questions then you have every right to make a personal injury claim with an accident solicitor in Normanton.

They will explain to you exactly what you need to know about compensation claims and how yours will be handled, including any costs that will be incurred. One of the most common misconceptions in the general public is that compensation claims are free. They aren’t. Recent changes to the law dictate than even the victor must meet 25% of costs.
Accident Advice Helpline will help you understand the process clearly and explain all the costs and fees that may be involved. All of our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis, and many claims can be handled entirely by telephone.
