Ashford is a common place name that has been used for locations as diverse as Kent, South Hams in Devon, Hampshire, North Devon and Surrey. There are also a couple of areas that have Ashford in the name, such as Ashford-in-the-Water in Derbyshire. So, while you might have cause to make a car accident compensation claim in Ashford, the ease with which you might find a solicitor to help could depend on which Ashford the incident happened in.
Clearly, searching for a solicitor in a small village is going to present you with a challenge you wouldn’t have if you were looking in a large town such as Ashford in Kent. However, you may not realise there is an easier way to get in contact with someone who can help.
Going through a car accident compensation claim in Ashford
No one assumes they’re going to have a car accident, which is why it is such a shock when it happens. It’s possible you may have been the one to blame, in which case you should learn from it and try and drive more responsibly in the future. Hopefully, no one was injured in the incident.
However, if you were hurt in an accident and someone else caused that to happen, you have a right to think about compensation. Your injuries don’t need to be bad for this to be a possibility either. Each year, there are people who win compensation payouts stemming from minor whiplash, minor bruising from their seatbelt and various other bumps and scrapes they might have suffered too. Of course, the more serious your injuries are, the greater the potential payout could be.
How can you find out what applies in your case?
Knowing who to turn to isn’t easy after an accident occurs. You do have three years in which to decide what to do, and within which any claim to get some compensation must be made. You can make life easier though by calling 0800 689 0500 to get in touch with an expert at Accident Advice Helpline. Mobile callers can phone on 0333 500 0993 instead.
Either way, you will be able to speak with someone about a car accident compensation claim in Ashford if you think there is a chance you can make one. We’ll be only too happy to advise you and there’s no obligation to continue either.
