Accident solicitor in Upper Brailes
As with anywhere else in the UK, accidents are not unheard of in the quiet village of Upper Brailes in Warwickshire. If you have been victim of an accident whilst working or staying in Upper Brailes, you may wish to learn more about the process of claiming compensation for your injuries. Here are some of the most common questions faced by our team of expert claims advisors on our freephone helpline.
Can I claim compensation for any type of injury?
You can claim compensation for any injury or illness that you have sustained as a result of someone else’s negligence, recklessness or criminal act. Common types of personal injuries include back injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder, whiplash, hand injuries, leg injuries, eye injuries and arm injuries. To determine whether you will be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries, you may wish to take advantage of our 30-second test.
How long will it take an accident solicitor in Upper Brailes to prepare my compensation claim?
Your accident solicitor in Upper Brailes will ask to see your medical records and obtain statements from any witnesses to your accident. This part of the process can take as little as a few weeks or as long as a few months.
Once your solicitor has received all the required evidence, they will prepare a letter of claim to send to the defendant. The defendant will then have four months to investigate your allegations and send a letter of response. If the defendant admits liability, your accident solicitor will negotiate your compensation settlement. If the defendant chooses to deny liability, your solicitor will ask for your permission to start court proceedings.
If you decide to take your claim to court, it may take as long as two years to settle.
How much will it cost me to make a claim?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we will be able to take on your case on a 100% no win no fee basis, also known as a conditional fee agreement (CFA).
How much compensation will I receive?
Your compensation settlement will comprise a general damages settlement which will cover your pain and suffering, and a special damages settlement which will cover your financial losses and expenses. Our claims advisors will not be able to provide you with a precise indication of the value of your compensation settlement at the outset of your case. However, your accident solicitor in Upper Brailes will advise and guide you as your case progresses.
If you want to discuss your accident in more detail then make sure you get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. Our expert advisers can be reached on 0800 689 0500 now.
