Suffering car accident injuries in West Midlands can be devastating enough, not least when the accident has been caused by another party who should have known better. But you may also find that you are left with expenses and costs you hadn’t been expecting. Add into the equation that you may also be unable to work and are therefore suffering loss of income too, and the aftermath of an accident can be a highly worrying and traumatic time.
The law allows for accident victims to make claims for compensation in certain circumstances. If you are interested in knowing whether you could benefit from this provision, Accident Advice Helpline can help.
Are you eligible to claim for car accident injuries in West Midlands?
To be able to make a successful claim, the following three factors must be true about your accident:
- It must have caused you injuries which required medical treatment, whether at the scene or at a later date;
- Someone else must have been responsible for the accident happening. They may have acted carelessly or negligently, resulting in you being injured; and
- You must normally get your case started within three years of the date of the accident. In some circumstances – if you were a minor at the time, for example – this timescale can be extended to allow you a fair chance to make your case.
