There’s no reason why you should be facing financial trouble after having suffered an injury that you did not cause yourself.
The law states that anyone who has been injured in an accident that someone else was to blame for is automatically entitled to receive a compensation for their injury.
However, in order to receive the money, you need to file a compensation claim in St Leonards-on-Sea.
When you should file your compensation claim in St Leonards-on-Sea
With few exceptions, a personal injury claim can be filed anytime in the three years following the date of your injury. You should file the claim when you are ready to handle it, once you have put together the required documentation and have decided on a legal adviser to work with. However, the sooner you file the claim, the sooner you will receive the money.
In most cases, the people who are filing a compensation claim in St Leonards-on-Sea are really in need of that money in order to regain their financial balance. Medical expenses often leave them out of pocket, especially with more serious injuries.
Something that is also very common is that after being injured, they are not able to work for a period of time, which results in lost wages. The two combined leave the victim of an accident in a complicated situation, and the personal injury compensation becomes, in such a setting, essential for them putting their life together.
What your legal adviser can do for you
- Your legal advisor’s job is to handle everything related to your personal injury claim. Once they have collected all the documentation from you, they will be in charge with all the paperwork and everything else involved in the process of your claim. Today, in most cases, you don’t even have to leave your home, as everything is communicated and processed remotely, over the telephone and online.
- Another thing that your legal adviser will provide you with, unofficially, however, is moral support. Accident solicitors have a lot of experience with working with people who have been through complicated life situations, and they often offer you more than just legal advice.
- Financial support. Even though they will not actively give you money, the way most accident claim companies will work to support their clients. In the case of Accident Advice Helpline, for example, the way in which we support our clients is that we don’t ask for any money in order to start a claim and we only charge fees if the case is won. This means that you don’t have to worry about legal fees in the case that you don’t receive your compensation.
