    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    What is the compensation claims process?

    There are clear steps to preparing a compensation claim. First the claim must be eligible. If you’ve had too much to drink, and driven your car up a lamp-post and given yourself concussion, then you only have yourself to blame, but if a car mounted the pavement and knocked you over as you were innocently walking along, then you could have a claim. To be eligible, the claimant must answer ‘yes’ to 3 questions:

    The victim must have needed medical treatment because of their injuries

    The claim must be lodged within 3 years (2 years in case of accidents at sea)

    The accident must have clearly been the fault of someone else

    After that, if the responsible party can be clearly identified and the claimant can prove their case, then the best lawyers in Hartlebury or elsewhere, can prepare the claim.

    How do I prove my case?

    Your solicitor will need documentation to support your claim. This will include your initial medical report, any witness details and your own notes. If the medical treatment is ongoing, then provide all records. Also, keep all receipts and bills for expenses incurred as a direct result of your incapacitation. These can include bills for personal and domestic support, medical and therapeutic treatments, and transport costs if you can’t drive to hospital, and in some cases costs such as child care and domestic support. Loss of income is considered in some cases.

    You may not be required to attend court. In fact, many claims, such as claims for whiplash injury, are settled out of court. If the defendant accepts your claim without dispute, then settlement can follow quickly and you could have your compensation payment in the bank sooner than you think. Most victims use their award for the extra bills they have run up and also to tide them over if their income stream has dried up because they can’t work.
