The services of an accident lawyer are often sought when people are injured. Whether it’s a small bump in the car at some traffic lights that leads to someone picking up the phone and calling Accident Advice Helpline, or a slip and fall in a shopping centre that causes multiple fractures, a personal injury solicitor could help. Talk to us today if you need compensation for car crash injuries in Wolverhampton.
Eligibility to claim
To claim through an accident lawyer, two conditions must be met:
- Your accident was someone else’s fault
- You got injured as a result
You can check whether you’re eligible by going to Accident Advice Helpline’s website and taking the 30 second test – or just pick up the phone, speak to an advisor, and they will tell you.
Where does the accident lawyer come in?
If you’re eligible, the advisor who takes your call will pass your case details to our legal team. This consists of ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors, and your accident lawyer in Wolverhampton is part of that team.
Their role is to deal with all the paperwork. They will enter into discussion with the agencies involved, including insurance companies, in an attempt to get you the compensation you deserve.
A successful outcome is when a settlement is reached. The payout is made, and this provides you with real help – coping with injury is difficult, and often causes people to lose money (through paying for services such as home helps, and losing income through being off work).
What you need to do
While your accident lawyer in Wolverhampton will be able to handle most of the process on your behalf, there are a couple of things you will need to do.
The first of these is to attend an additional medical assessment. This is essential – the claim cannot proceed without it. We understand that it may be inconvenient and stressful, but it is worth doing.
The second thing is that you will need to submit evidence. Payouts reflect not only the pain and suffering that the victim endures, but also the expenses that they incur. Keep receipts, records of your medical treatment, and photographs of the accident scene. It’s a good idea to start a file and keep everything related to your case in it.
