Accident Solicitor in Weston on the Green
If you have been injured through no fault of your own, it is highly likely that you will be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we fully understand that the prospect of taking legal action against someone else can cause considerable stress and worry. This is why we encourage you to find out more about the claims process before you decide to commence with your claim. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions that our legal team respond to on a daily basis:
I suffered a personal injury a few years ago – can I still make a claim?
If your claim centres on someone else’s negligence, you can file a compensation claim up to three years after your injury. However, the court may extend this time limit if you were not immediately aware of your injury – for example, if you developed a disease that did not present noticeable symptoms. If you wish to make a claim from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, you can file a claim up to two years after the incident.
Your accident solicitor in Weston on the Green will be able to advise you on the time limits that apply to your particular case.
I would like to make a claim – how long will it take my accident solicitor in Weston on the Green to win compensation for my personal injury?
If your claim is relatively straightforward, it may be possible for your accident solicitor in Weston on the Green to negotiate a compensation settlement within as little as a few months.
I have heard I may receive a large compensation settlement – how much compensation will I receive for my injury?
You can claim both general damages compensation for your pain and suffering and special damages compensation for your financial losses. For example, you make a claim for not only the pain and suffering of losing a hand but also because you can no longer enjoy your hobbies or continue in employment. If you wish to receive an estimate of your compensation settlement, do not hesitate to use our 30-second test.
