Why make a compensation claim?
If you have been involved in a car accident, you may be weighing up the pros and cons of making car accident claims in Derby for compensation.
For many people, especially those involved in minor car accidents, the process of making a claim can seem overwhelming and extensive. The costs involved can also be seen as a deterrent. At Accident Advice Helpline, we are aware of the large amount of misinformation pertaining to compensation claims, which is why we take extra steps wherever possible to ensure everyone is aware of his or her right to make a claim following a car accident. There are many reasons it makes sense to do so:
Your right to make car accident claims in Derby
Many car accident victims are unaware that seeking compensation is a legal right. In accordance with UK law, those that have been injured in car accidents caused by the negligence of another party have a right to claim compensation. If you have been involved in a collision for which you were not at fault within the past three years, you could be among those eligible to make car accident claims in Derby.
You can receive a substantial sum in compensation
Even minor collisions and injuries can result in a substantial payout. In addition to claiming compensation for the injury, you can seek money in damages for the repercussions that may have arisen as a result of the accident, such as:
- Money lost in earnings due to time off work
- The cost of medical care and appointments
- The costs involved with travelling to appointments
- Childcare whilst you attend physio and rehab
- Other miscellaneous costs
