If you live in Brent and have been unlucky enough to fall victim to an accident, it is highly likely that this could have a profound effect upon your life. The mental and physical pain of an accident of this nature, can also leave deep wounds on a financial level as well. Here are some things you need to know to make sure that your financial injuries are not any worse than your physical injuries.
The cost of a Brent accident
An accident can cost you in a number of ways. First of all, there is the cost of treatment. Although much of this will be available on the NHS, you’ll still be vulnerable to incidental expenses such as travel costs or buying in equipment to help make your day to day life easier. Additionally, medical expenses may also need to be factored in.
Getting that money back
It’s not all necessarily doom and gloom. If you’ve been involved in a Brent accident, it may be possible to retrieve this money back through a compensation claim. If an accident is deemed to have not been your fault then by right you ‘re entitled to be compensated for your losses. This includes a sum based on the severity of the accident and one which takes into account the money you’ve spent and lost out on – of course you’ll have to prove that the accident was someone else’s fault.
Paying for your claim
The act of making a claim is not something you should enter into lightly. There is no legal aid available for personal injury claims which means you’ll have to pay the fees yourself. If you lose your case you could find yourself in considerable financial trouble.
With that being said, it is imperative that you choose a lawyer who offers no win no fee* as standard. This serves as financial protection should anything go wrong with your case.
However, what’s more important than anything else is to find the right lawyer. Not all of them are the same and some will specialise in different areas of the law. Accident Advice Helpline on the other hand do offer a comprehensive and personalised service – working on a no win no fee* basis.
