If you have been involved in an accident that you did not cause, and think that you are entitled to make a claim for compensation then the team at Accident Advice Helpline are on hand to help you out. But how can we help you with claiming after a car accident in Oldbury?
Free, no obligation advice
The first thing we are able to offer when you contact us is free advice. Admittedly this won’t be legal advice, but at the outset you won’t need legal advice.
When you speak to one of our advisers they will be able to discuss with you in detail the nature of your accident, and will then be able to determine the relevant facts about whether or not you can claim.
They will need to know when your accident occurred because there are legal time limits imposed on how long you can leave it to make a claim. Generally speaking this limit is three years, although there will be other things to take into consideration. For example, if you were under the age of 18 at the time of the accident (and therefore regarded as a minor) then you will have three years from the time you turn 18. Equally, if you have been diagnosed with an industrial disease you will have three years from the date of diagnosis.
Our advisers will also ask you about what happened in the accident to cause the accident itself, and what caused the injuries. The two are not necessarily the same thing. For example, the accident could have been a traffic related one, caused by another driver’s reckless behaviour. However, your injuries could be caused because you weren’t wearing a seatbelt – in which case you would be regarded as being partially liable.
These are important considerations as it will impact your ability to claim, and ultimately the amount of compensation you might be entitled to receive.
