When can you make car accident injury claims in County Durham?
Although many people are eligible to claim compensation after an accident, they don’t always realise it. Unfortunately, this can lead to people missing out on compensation they deserve. If you’ve recently been hurt or injured in a collision or road accident, you may want to contact a personal injury lawyer in order to determine whether or not you will be able to make car accident injury claims in County Durham.
In actual fact, you could make a compensation claim following various types of car accidents. If another driver swerved into your lane and caused a collision, you could potentially claim compensation for any injuries you sustained.
Similarly, if you were in a stationary vehicle and another car struck you, you may be able to obtain compensation for the harm you suffered.
Providing you weren’t responsible for the incident and it was caused by someone or something else, there’s a good chance that you will be eligible to make a compensation claim.
How long have you got to make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline?
Although claimants don’t have to make a claim straight after an accident has occurred, you may not want to leave it too long either. In most cases, claimants are required to take legal action within three years of getting hurt in order to obtain compensation.
Furthermore, if you make a compensation claim soon after being hurt, you may find that you’re able to recall the details of the incident more clearly. In addition to this, any paperwork or evidence relating to the incident may be easier to locate.
If you’ve been hurt or injured within the last three years and the incident wasn’t your fault, why not contact Accident Advice Helpline to find out more about making a claim?
