Unfortunately, accidents that were not our fault can happen to us all. We could be involved in a car crash or we could slip, trip or fall when we are out and about. Things can even go wrong when we are receiving medical treatment. When we are the victims of those incidents, we are left coping with not only the physical and psychological effects but also the financial worries. Maybe we cannot work at all or not as many hours we used to. Maybe we are having to buy in extra help with childcare or household chores. This is a time when people start to ask “Can I claim compensation for what has happened to me?”
If you are asking yourself “Can I claim compensation”, here are some straight forward facts to help you.
Fact 1: A claims management company like Accident Advice Helpline can guide you through answering this question. Even if your injuries happened a while ago, it is likely that you can still claim. You can claim for car crash injuries and medical negligence injuries that occurred up to three years ago. You have even longer to claim for industrial diseases.
Fact 2: Accident Advice Helpline have a team of friendly, professional advisers who will guide you through a unique 30 second test to help them to work out the answer to your question “Can I claim compensation?” You are under no obligation; you do not have to pursue the claim unless you want to. You can call the advice helpline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Fact 3: You will be put in touch with one of the national network of legal partners. You will be allocated the right advisor for you depending on whether you are asking “Can I claim compensation for medical negligence?”, “Can I claim compensation for a car accident?” or “Can I claim compensation for a fall in the street?”.
Fact 4: Just because you are asking “Can I claim compensation?” it does not mean that you want to attend lots of appointments and pay expensive legal fees. This is not a problem because most claims can be handled over the telephone and very few cases end up in court. You may need to attend one appointment with a doctor for a medical assessment. You do not need to worry about legal fees because the legal partners work on a no win no fee* basis so if your case is not successful you do not pay a thing.
Fact 5: The exact amount of compensation that you will get cannot be guaranteed as it varies from case to case. It is important that you feel assured that the claims management company is working in your best interests. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people claim compensation for over 15 years and are endorsed by consumer champion Esther Rantzen.
