If you have had an accident…
Then you should speak to Accident Advice Helpline today to find out if our in-house compensation claim solicitor in Henley on Thames can help you make a claim for compensation.
Who can claim for compensation with a compensation claim solicitor in Henley on Thames?
Anyone over the age of 18 can make a claim for compensation if:
- They have been injured as a result of an accident
- The accident in question was not their fault (or at least not entirely their fault)
- The accident occurred within the last three years
Individuals under the age of 18 may still be able to make a claim if they appoint a litigation friend to act on their behalf. Any compensation won will then be held in trust until they reach the age of 18. Speak to an experienced solicitor in Henley on Thames for more information regarding this.
What makes you eligible to make a claim?
Generally speaking you are eligible to make a claim if you meet the criteria mentioned above; however, to be certain you can take our 30 second test right now.
This will immediately tell you if you qualify to make a claim, and then you can speak to our compensation claim solicitor in Henley on Thames to initiate the claims process.
What can you claim for?
It is possible to make a claim for any injury suffered as a result of an accident which was not your fault and where you have received injuries as a result of accidents on the road. The particular accidents actually involve cyclists who have been injured as a result of large pot holes which have not been properly repaired or marked as being a potential hazard. One client was thrown from her bike and suffered a broken rib as well as severe concussion (despite wearing the appropriate safety equipment).
The large number of increased pot holes have been caused as a result of the adverse weather conditions and severe flooding within the area, and the roads have become effective death traps ever since.
If you have been affected by these pot holes contact our solicitor in Henley on Thames today to find out if Accident Advice Helpline can help you make a claim.
How much compensation can you claim?
The amount of compensation you are awarded if your claim is successful will depend on a number of factors. These can include the severity of the injuries you have suffered, who was liable for the accident, and the on-going effects of the injuries you have suffered.
For example, are you likely to need extensive rehabilitation as a result, or will you be scarred for life either physically or emotionally?
Your solicitor in Henley on Thames can also help you claim for other things such as loss of earnings if you have been unable to work (or take early retirement on medical grounds) as well as out of pocket expenses to cover the cost of treatment, equipment, travel or medical prescriptions.
So for expert legal advice about a possible claim call Accident Advice Helpline today on: 0800 689 0500 from a landline or: 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
