Council Compensation Claim in Pollok
You can make a compensation claim in Pollok if you have had an accident or injury which you feel is the council’s fault. There are a few steps to take to do this and you may want to deal with this on your own or go through Accident Advice Helpline to get help with making your claim. A council compensation claim in Pollok is more likely to be successful if you follow these steps.
Making A Claim
Whether you are dealing with the claim on your own or going through Accident Advice Helpline, you will need details of your accident and the injuries it caused. You should also think carefully about why you think the council is at fault and what they could have done to prevent your accident. The council will more than likely claim that your accident was not their fault, so you will want to get together as much evidence as possible that the fault lies with them.
If you use Accident Advice Helpline make notes before you call 0800 689 0500 so that you have all of the information to hand.
What You Will Need To Provide
You may be applying for compensation on your own or through Accident Advice Helpline, but either way it is useful to get this information together.
- Personal details (name, address, etc)
- Details of your accident
- Exact location of your accident
- National Insurance number
- Why you think the council is to blame
How To Get Started On Your Compensation Claim in Pollok
You will need to call Accident Advice Helpline or send a letter to your council with all of the information listed above provided. Sending a letter direct to the council may mean that your compensation claim actually takes a little longer to process. This is because the council will look at it as a low priority and then process it more slowly. If you go through Accident Advice Helpline then the team will try to push your claim through as quickly as possible.
The helpline has over 10 years’ experience as a personal injury compensation law firm and employs dedicated personal injury lawyers who will approach the council for you. You should not have to get involved any further and will be contacted by the helpline if you need to provide any more information. If you approach the council directly then you may be called to clarify certain points or fill in some details after your letter has been received.
What If Your Claim Is Unsuccessful?
You will be contacted by the council or Accident Advice Helpline to tell you that your compensation claim has not been successful. You should always be provided with reasons for this and these should explain in depth why the council feels that it is not at fault. You may then appeal this decision if you don’t agree with it. Accident Advice Helpline works on a 100% no win no fee basis so you will not have to pay if your claim is not successful.
