Are you seeking advice after a car accident in Holyhead?
If you have been involved in an accident, there are all kinds of things that need to happen. Thankfully, accidents are few and far between but, there are times when they occur. Because we are so unfamiliar with what needs to happen, we can sometimes miss out important stages.
Swapping insurance details is important, and seeking medical help is vital. But people may also be entitled to claim compensation.
Claiming after an accident is unfamiliar territory for many people and they worry that the information they receive is not correct, or that they will be trapped into making a claim that could cost them a lot of money.
If you are seeking advice after a car accident in Holyhead, you need a professional, highly specialised law firm to answer your questions. Accident Advice Helpline is that law firm!
The facts about making a compensation claim
There are many questions that you will want answering before you embark on making a compensation claim for personal injury. To help in your fact-finding quest, here are a few helpful pieces of information.
The accident must not have been your fault. Claims for compensation are made by suing the party responsible for the accident. In essence, this means that someone or something failed, placing you in danger and hence, the accident occurred. In terms of car accidents, it could be anything from a rear impact collision to the other failing to stop or give way at a junction.
Your injuries need to be assessed. There are many different types of injuries that can result from car accidents. Whiplash (excruciatingly painful) is a common injury, but there are also injuries that, when combined, can limit what you do in your life and change it beyond all recognition.
Your injuries, both physical and emotional, can be claimed for, but there will need to be medical assessment or diagnosis of them. You may have sought this already from your own doctor or from a hospital. We may ask you to attend an additional medical appointment, too.
Don’t delay, because there’s a deadline
You have a three-year window within which to claim. There is a three-year deadline within which claims for personal injury compensation must be submitted, with the deadline countdown starting from the point it can be reasonably assumed your injuries were caused by the accident.
