Chelmsford is the county town of Essex, lying just 32 miles from central London. A popular base for those commuting to work in City and Docklands, workers commuting to work in Colchester have also made their homes in the town, which has seen a population growth in recent years. If you’re considering making a Chelmsford no-win, no-fee accident claim after being injured in the town, you’ll need the services of a reliable personal injury solicitor, and that’s where Accident Advice Helpline can help you. Provided it has been three years or less since your accident and somebody else was to blame, there’s a good chance you’ll be eligible to claim compensation.
How can you make a Chelmsford no-win, no-fee accident claim?
The first step to making any claim is to contact a solicitor to find out whether you are eligible. It may be that you tripped on a damaged platform at the station and broke your ankle, or perhaps you were injured whilst working in a shop when objects fell from height off shelves and hit you on the head, causing a head injury. In both these situations, you could find yourself in a position to make a personal injury claim, although the person at fault is different in both cases. If you’re injured in a workplace accident, it’s often your employer who is to blame, as they take responsibility for your health and safety whilst you’re at work.
If you are injured in a public place such as at a train station, those responsible for the maintenance of the station could be held liable and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation. If you think you may be eligible to make a Chelmsford no-win, no-fee accident claim, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline at any time after your accident.
How much compensation could you get?
This is a tricky question to answer, as it depends on a variety of different factors. We’ll take into account things like:
- How long you needed to take off work to recover from your injuries
- How serious your injuries are
- Any medical treatment you have needed and the cost of this
- Any financial losses you’ve suffered, such as loss of earnings or extra costs
- How your injuries have affected your life both now and in the future
- What your prognosis is and how long you’ll take to recover
All these factors can affect your settlement of a Chelmsford no-win, no-fee accident claim, and we process each and every claim on an individual basis. So it’s difficult for us to give you an exact figure when it comes to compensation. But you could take the 30-second test on our website right now, for an idea of what you could claim.
