When people contact us at Accident Advice Helpline, for a car accident in Brecon, a lot of the time the first question they ask is normally “Do I have a claim?”, quickly followed by “How much compensation will I win?”
Of course, we cannot tell you how much you may be awarded because we just do not know – so telling you anything like “You will win £x” would just not be the truth.
We are able, however, to provide an educated guess based on similar claims that we have fought and won. In turn, armed with this knowledge, we developed a simple little tool that will give you an estimation on the amount that you might win.
It is, basically, a compensation calculator and you can use this quick efficient tool either by entering some basic details about you and your car accident in Brecon. If you call us up, we will use the same criteria to see if you have a qualifying claim.
Tell us all about your car accident in Brecon and the circumstances surrounding it
After the withdrawal of legal aid for accident claims, a new method for claiming compensation for personal injury accidents was introduced. The conditional fee agreement, also known as no-win, no-fee states that the accident must not have been caused by you. So for example, if your injuries are as a result of a car accident in Brecon, you must be the innocent party, with the blame of the accident being attributed to the person or organisation that you are claiming against. Getting hurt is no fun at all, and accidents very often mean the victim seeking medical help and attention. Again, the conditional fee agreement is clear – you must have gone to a medical professional, such as a doctor,to seek advice or attention for your injuries.
When did your accident happen?
The rules on time frames are crystal clear, and they must not be deviated from lest your claim be judged ‘out of date’. You have to make your compensation claim within 3 years of the date of your accident.
Minors, and cases involving industrial disease do have slightly different time frame rules though. If an accident victim was a child when the accident happened, they have until their 21st birthday to claim. In the case of industrial disease, the three year rules stands but it starts at the date of diagnosis and not the date of contraction.
Why do you need professional help, can’t you do it yourself?
Most personal injury claims are clear cut, but even the simplest of claims for personal injuries need a level of detail that meets all aspects of British personal injury law. Specialist legal teams at Accident Advice Helpline can be worth their weight in gold when it comes to getting the best in legal representation.
