FAQ about car accident compensation claims in Grangemouth
If you are thinking about making a claim following a car accident, it is natural to have a number of questions about the process.
For many people, a compensation claim could be their first time entering the legal system, at a time when they are already feeling strained and vulnerable. At Accident Advice Helpline, we are fully aware of this, having been helping accident victims for over 16 years.
That’s why we have taken the time to answer common questions about car accident compensation claims in Grangemouth, so you can have the information you need to hand when making this important decision:
Who can make a claim?
Not everyone involved in an accident can claim compensation. In order to be eligible, your accident must have taken place within the past three years, and should have happened through no fault of your own. You also should have received medical attention for any injuries sustained to be able to make car accident compensation claims in Grangemouth or anywhere else in the UK.
How long does it take to make a claim?
How long it takes to receive your money will depend on your individual claim. If there is obvious evidence that there is negligence involved, the responsible party may wish to reach an out-of-court settlement, which will expedite the process substantially. In some cases, it may only take a matter of a few weeks to receive your compensation.
What happens if you have to go to court?
Accident Advice Helpline solicitors are highly experienced in the area of personal injury, and will work hard to see you awarded the full amount in compensation. If you are required to go to court, your solicitor will guide you through the process and provide you with all the support and counsel you need to make a successful claim. We will do our best to explain the process and make everything as stress-free as possible.
What is no-win, no-fee*?
No-win, no-fee* is a payment agreement that makes it easier for victims of accident to afford legal care. It was introduced following the withdrawal of legal aid, and makes it easy to afford help from a solicitor as there are no legal fees upfront.
How much will you receive?
The amount each claim is worth will vary, but you could potentially stand to gain thousands of pounds. You can get a fast estimate online by using our 30-second claims calculator, or you can call our helpline to discuss car accident compensation claims in Grangemouth over the phone.
Is Accident Advice Helpline a claims management company?
No – Accident Advice Helpline is a full service law firm, so you can work directly with a personal injury solicitor when you claim with us.
