To have suffered an injury in an accident that was not your fault is traumatic enough, but if it was a catastrophic injury, such as to your brain or spine, you will probably be thinking of claiming compensation for your pain and suffering. In cases such as these you need the help of a specialist catastrophic injury lawyer who has experience of this specialist area of personal injury claims.
Accident Advice Helpline has the resources to help you with this very serious type of compensation claim. You do not want to leave the success of your claim to chance. It is just too important to obtain the maximum compensation for this type of injury. The money can be used in many practical ways that will aid your day-to-day life.
Your catastrophic injury lawyer
By phoning our 24-hour helpline, you will be able to confirm your eligibility to make a claim, and gain access to the experience and knowledge of our team of expert solicitors. They all operate on a basis of no-win, no-fee*. So you know that you will have nothing to pay up-front in terms of legal fees, but you will still have access to their knowledge and expertise.
Due to the complexity of this type of claim, your catastrophic injury lawyer will need time to gather all the documentation together, including medical reports and witness statements in order to formulate a case for negligence. As damages can be so high in these cases, you need the experience of a specialist lawyer to prove that negligence occurred, and show that you, as the injured party, did not contribute to the accident in any way.
Your claim for compensation
It can take some time for the full effect of your injuries to become apparent, but it is likely that at some point you will need some specialist medical equipment in your home, or long-term medical treatment. The compensation awarded can be used to purchase these things, which will make your daily life easier. It may also replace lost earnings if you have had to give up your job.
Whatever the compensation is used for, your catastrophic injury lawyer can provide the opportunity to get the compensation you deserve. By using our prior experience and knowledge, you can be confident that you have the best chance possible of a successful outcome.
