Injuries suffered in Leicestershire accidents, as elsewhere, can be extremely painful and inconvenient. If you have injured your leg or shoulder in a slip, trip or fall, or if you have whiplash following a road traffic accident, then you will no doubt be experiencing the pain and inconvenience that injuries introduce into your life.
Did you realise that you can claim compensation for injuries that were caused in accidents that were not your fault? Did you know that you can contact a firm called Accident Advice Helpline who will help you to make a claim for compensation against the person who was at fault for the accident?
Here, we explain more about claiming for accident expenses in Leicestershire.
Why consider claiming for accident expenses in Leicestershire?
People with injuries often have trouble:
- Caring for children; or
This makes life very difficult indeed! If someone was the cause of this difficulty in your life, then they should have to pay you compensation to make up for it.
Added to this is the fact that you are probably also losing money as a result of your injury because you cannot work or may have to pay extra childcare costs. You have every right to claim for this as well. Why should you be out of pocket because of something that someone else has done?
How to start a compensation claim
A good place to start is making one telephone call to Accident Advice Helpline. We are one of the longest established UK personal injury law firms. What’s more, we are recommended by consumer champion and TV personality Esther Rantzen. Try to make the first contact straight after the accident. However, it does not matter if you have not done so because you have up to three years to make a claim. You can call us 24 hours a day, seven days a week and speak to our friendly, professional advisors.
Claiming compensation for an injury
The next stage is taken care of by Accident Advice Helpline. We allocate you one of our personal injury lawyers with plenty of knowledge and experience in handling the legal aspects of compensation in Leicestershire cases. Thankfully, this does not involve you having to pay upfront legal costs, because of a legal charging system called no win no fee.
Your involvement at this stage is to provide accurate details of your accident, your injuries and your financial losses caused by your injuries. Try to recall exactly what happened just before and during the accident – it may help to write it down straight after it happened if that is at all possible. Photographs, diagrams and sketches can be especially useful.
Keep a careful record of all of your injuries and medical appointments. You may also need to attend one appointment locally with a medical expert who will prepare a medical assessment report about your injuries for you.
