Making a compensation claim is becoming something of a pastime If you listen in to the conversations around you on the train journey home. You will doubtless find that someone is, or knows someone who is, making a personal injury or accident claim. The truth is that the number of accident claims in the United Kingdom has risen dramatically in recent years; partly because of improved exposure but also because it is being made easy of people to claim. If you want to make a compensation claim in Shildon will have a choice of legal firms for you to chose from. But do you really understand what making a compensation claim involves?
Compensation Claim in Shildon – Understanding claim
The problem is that although the people whose conversations you are listening to may sound as if they know everything about compensation claims the fact is that they probably don’t. Many of the daily accident claims that professionals in the field, such as the advisers at Accident Advice Helpline, have to deal with are never going to bear fruit. This is because many people do not understand the rules and regulations behind making an accident claim.
What you need.
So what do you need exactly to pursue a successful compensation claim Shildon? To begin with you must be able to answer yes to all of the following three questions.
- Was the Accident within the last three years? (Some work related cases can be allowed outside this time but these are subject to different boundaries).
- Did you suffer personal injury either mental or physical as a result?
- Was the accident someone else’s fault?
Number three is perhaps the most important question in the list. We all have accidents, but we cannot make a personal injury claim against ourselves. If you can answer yes to all three questions then you have every right to make a personal injury claim.
What to do next.
One of the simplest ways of starting a compensation claim is to call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 ( 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) and ask a few questions of one of their trained advisers. You don’t have to place your claim with them of course; but with over fourteen years’ experience behind them and two hundred legal partners to work with you can be sure that you’d be handled by experienced staff at all times. They will explain to you exactly what you need to know about UK claims and how yours will be handled including any costs that will be incurred. One of the most common misconceptions in the general public is that personal injury claims are free. They aren’t. The law recently changed so that even if you win you have to pay twenty five percent of the costs involved. All this will be explained to you by your Accident Advice Helpline advisor and you will be placed under no obligation.
If you feel confident about your own right to claim claim then pick up the phone and start that compensation claim today.
