Did you know that the name Kentish Town is believed to have been derived from the term “ken-ditch,” which means “bed of a waterway?” Did you also know that if you are looking for an accident solicitor in Kentish Town, the area has plenty for you to choose from? Hopefully you will never be in a position to need an accident solicitor, but if you do then you need to understand what a personal injury claim is and how to pursue one.
When to call an accident solicitor in Kentish Town
If you have suffered an accident in the last three years that was not your fault, and suffered a personal injury from it that caused you to receive medical attention, then you have a right to make a personal injury claim. It does not matter whether the accident was a motoring accident, a slip or fall, or an accident while working — if it can be proved that it was a result of the negligence of someone else, then you have a right to make a claim.
The key to all personal injury claims is that the final decision maker must agree that you have suffered as a result, either through loss of earnings, having to pay increased child care as you were incapacitated, or suffering in some other way. To say “Oh, I had whiplash” but to have nothing to support its affect on you is not enough.
if you are still unsure as to your right to make a claim, the best plan is to call a recognised organisation such as Accident Advice Helpline, who can be called via freephone 0800 689 0500. We have been helping people to understand the claims process and make successful claims for over ten years, so you know that you will be speaking to the voice of experience. In that time, we have managed to make no win no fee agreements with over 200 solicitors who take on the claims and deal with them after the initial contact.
The 30-second test
The 30-second test will be offered to you in your initial call, or it can be done online. It assesses your claim rights and will then give you the green light to go ahead with making a claim. The initial call carries no obligation; you can go away and decide if you wish to continue with making your claim with us with no pressure to do so from our team.
If you are undecided about which legal firm to place your claim with, then looking at its history in the personal injury claims field is a good method to use when making a choice. Accident Advice Helpline have a great track record with helping people make claims and have the backing of Esther Rantzen, who is not only a well known television personality but a person who has been campaigning for improved consumer rights for many years.
