If you have been injured as a result of an accident in Woburn, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim. While a great deal of confusion surrounds the claims process, claiming personal injury compensation through Accident Advice Helpline is easier than you may think.
I want to start a claim – will I have to visit an accident solicitor in Woburn in person?
As a national law firm, we pride ourselves on our ability to represent clients throughout the United Kingdom. To start your claim, simply call our helpline or use our 30-second test and we will get the ball rolling.
I am concerned about time limits – am I still eligible to make a claim?
You must start your claim within three years of the date of the accident or illness that gives rise to your claim. If you wish to claim on behalf of a child, this three-year time limit will not start until the child turns 18 years of age. It is always better to commence your claim at the earliest opportunity, as delays may prevent your accident solicitor in Woburn from collecting the evidence you need to substantiate your claim.
I may have contributed to the accident – can I still make a claim?
If you have been injured as a result of an accident that was entirely your fault, you will not be eligible to claim compensation. However, if you were partly to blame, you may be able to claim against the guilty party. For example, if you stepped out in front of an oncoming vehicle and the driver was on his mobile phone at the time of your accident, you may still be able to make a claim.
I am worried about my financial circumstances – how long will my case take?
Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to provide you with an accurate time scale for your claim. We will not be able to conclude your case until the guilty party has accepted liability or has been found responsible for your accident. If the guilty party accepts liability and your injuries are relatively straightforward, your accident solicitor in Woburn should be able to conclude your claim within six to 18 months.
I have a question that is not answered here – what should I do?
Our friendly claims advisers will be able to answer any queries you may have. Simply call our helpline (0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to receive the honest legal advice you require when you are looking for an accident solicitor in Woburn.
