Obtaining the right kind of advice after a car accident in Havering needn’t be difficult. Many people have at least a rough idea of the procedures to follow if they get into an accident, and they know that it’s a good idea to follow their doctor’s orders to ensure a full recovery.
However, when it comes to making a claim for compensation, things can get a little bit tricky. Why is this? Read on and you will see why people may feel confused about claiming.
Advice after a car accident in Havering from the experts
At least you can feel reassured that what you’re reading right now is from a reliable source. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have been helping people with accident claims since 2000. We are one of the largest law firms in the country, and we have achieved our success because we always put our clients first.
When you’ve had a car accident and suffered injury, and you’re thinking of claiming, there might be people among your family and friends who are only too happy to give you advice. Unfortunately, they might not give the correct advice to you.
People often follow advice given by people they trust, and sometimes, this can backfire. Your friends and relatives may be well-meaning, but it’s best to get your information from us.
Clearing up a few points about making a claim
Let’s look at one of the issues that may confuse people: the injury that you have sustained. Some people don’t bother claiming, because they think their injuries aren’t serious enough. They might have been told, for example, that only those injuries that result in a hospital stay are serious enough to be claimed for.
However, this is incorrect. To be eligible to claim, an injury must have been suffered, and there must be proof of this. Whiplash will generally not result in a visit to hospital. A trip to the GP will be sufficient. You could make a claim for whiplash, provided there is a medical record of it.
In fact, to save further confusion, here are the criteria that determine whether someone is eligible to claim:
- An accident happened
- Personal injury was suffered in the accident
- The accident was caused by someone else
- The accident happened within the last three years
