At Accident Advice Helpline, one of our main intentions is to help make the process of claiming after a car crash in Broadland as simple as possible. We want everybody to claim compensation if they are entitled to do so. This is why we operate as a 100% no win, no fee law firm. Due to the way in which we operate, however, we do have to be very selective when it comes to the type of case that we take on. On this page, we are going to briefly run you through the criteria that your particular case will need to meet should you wish to work with us.
You must have been injured
We are a personal injury law firm. This means that you will only be able to turn to us for claiming after a car crash in Broadland if you are actually injured. We will not be able to help you out if your vehicle was merely damaged.
It is worth noting that it does not matter all that much with regards to the severity of your injuries. Providing they have had an impact on your life, we should be able to help you out. You should however be aware that we can only assist you with your compensation claim if you are able to provide us with a medical report. This is why it is so important that you obtain this report soon after the incident. Without it, we can’t help you to claim a single penny of compensation.
The incident must have been the fault of another person
You can only claim compensation if somebody else was to blame. If you are the cause of the incident, you will not be able to claim anything. In fact, the other party will be able to claim from you. Now, you do not have to prove that the other person was acting in a deliberate manner. Most people who cause car accidents do not actually mean to cause them. Instead, you need to be able to prove that they were acting in a dangerous manner.
This may, for instance, mean that they were speeding, ignored road signs, or even drove through a red light. We will help you to gather all of the evidence that you need here.
The incident must have occurred within the last three years
The only exception to this rule is if you were a child at the time of the incident. However, even then we do urge you to start the claim process as soon as possible.
