Do you need to find out more about car accident compensation claims in Copeland? Perhaps you’ve had an accident and you’re thinking about claiming. Or maybe you want some information just in case you’re ever involved in car collisions in Copeland. Whatever the case, Accident Advice Helpline is happy to help.
Claiming after car collisions in Copeland
To be eligible to claim compensation after car collisions in Copeland, you must have:
- Been in an accident that was someone else’s fault; and
- Suffered personal injury in the accident;
- You should also have had your injuries treated soon after the accident by a medical professional.
Personal injury can be physical or psychological. It’s important to be aware of this, because you might have had an accident and escaped without any discernible physical injury, but suffered panic attacks ever since when you have attempted to drive.
Something else that’s vital to know is the time limit for making a claim. You usually have just three years from the date of your accident to begin claiming. If you leave it too long, you could find that you’re not eligible, so please start as soon as you can.
If you were under 18 when you had your accident, the time limit is extended, but it’s always advisable to proceed as soon as possible, not least because the experience will be fresher in your mind. Memories fade all too quickly, and that goes for witnesses, too.
Call Accident Advice Helpline
To begin your claim, call one of these numbers:
- 0800 689 0500 from a landline (our freephone number)
- 0333 500 0993 from a mobile
When you call, you will speak to an advisor. All our advisors are professionally trained and in possession of a great deal of knowledge about the claiming process. More importantly, though, they have excellent communication skills. They will demonstrate empathy and sensitivity in all their dealings with you.
If you qualify to claim, a no win no fee solicitor will take on your case and work on your behalf. Their aim is to obtain a payout for you. If you win your case, the payout will be made up of a sum of money for any losses and expenses you have incurred because of the accident, and a sum for the pain and suffering you’ve experienced.
You can also, if you prefer, send the text message “claim365” to 88010 and we will call you to discuss your potential claim.
Don’t delay, as the deadline for making your particular claim may not be far away and after it has passed you would have difficulty filing it.
