The aftermath of an automobile accident can often leave you feeling bewildered and confused. You may be trying to come to terms with your injuries, whilst also contemplating the often daunting prospect of making a claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline is an automobile accident law firm, who have been established for over 15 years. Their lawyers have helped thousands of victims of automobile accidents pursue successful claims for compensation. Accident victims who are thinking of making a claim often have many questions they require answers to, so listed below are those questions that are most frequently asked:
Automobile accident law firm – common questions we are asked:
- How much compensation will I receive for my injuries?
The amount of compensation that you receive will depend on the type and severity of injuries you have sustained in the accident, and the length of time you are expected to take to recover. Compensation awarded to you will also include an amount for financial losses you have incurred as a result of the accident.
- How long do I have to make a claim?
The general rule is that you have three years from the date on which the accident took place. Injured children have until their 21st birthday to make a claim.
- How long will my claim take?
Again, this will depend on the individual circumstances of your case. The legal adviser at the automobile accident law firm you choose to appoint is likely to advise you not to negotiate settlement of your claim until you have made a complete recovery from your injuries.
- Will I have to pay your fees if my claim is unsuccessful?
No. At Accident Advice Helpline, all of our lawyers work on a strict no-win, no-fee* basis.
- Will I have to go to court?
This is a common concern but the reality is that most accident claims are settled without the need to attend court. So the chances of you having to do so are extremely small.
