If you’ve recently been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, dealing with the financial and medical consequences can be difficult, potentially forcing you to take time off work, cancel holidays or even adapt your home to suit your new requirements.
Here at the Accident Advice Helpline, we try to help the victims of other people’s negligence or carelessness to claim the compensation that they deserve, allowing them to get the specialist care they need, regain control and get their lives back on track.
What is the average offer for a personal injury claim?
As each personal injury case is different, and many can be very complex, it’s impossible to say for certain what each claimant will receive if their case were to be successful. Therefore, as the amount rewarded can vary dramatically, the question ‘What is the average offer for a personal injury claim?’ is difficult to answer.
If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault within the last three years, the best way to get an idea of the compensation that you’re owed is to use the 30-second test on our website or call our free 24/7 advice line and speak to one of our friendly and professional members of staff today.
What types of accidents can you claims for?
Generally speaking, you can make a personal injury claim for any accident that wasn’t your fault in which you suffered an injury.
The most common types of accidents that result in personal injury claims are trips, slips and falls, road accidents, industrial incidents and medical negligence.
However, the accident must have been someone else’s fault and has to have occurred within the last three years for your claim to be eligible.
If you’re unsure whether or not your case is eligible for personal compensation, contact the Accident Advice Helpline and speak to one of our highly trained and experienced members of staff
Will I have to attend court?
Apart from, ‘What is the average offer for a personal injury claim?’ one of the most common questions we’re asked is whether or not the claimant will have to attend court during the claims process.
Normally, the person making the personal injury claim won’t have to attend court and in many cases the claim can be processed over the phone, making the entire experience a lot more convenient and less stressful.
