If you live in the Wakefield district and have been considering making a compensation claim in Wakefield, the local area will have a good range of personal injury solicitors for you to choose from. One of the most common things things that prevents most people from pursuing a compensation claim is knowing exactly where to start. Costs, time and knowledge are the most common reasons that people give when asked why they did not make a claim for the injury that they suffered.

Making a compensation claim in Wakefield with us at Accident Advice Helpline
Our advice line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the initial consultation will cost you nothing. The agent will offer you a 30-second test to assess your claim eligibility. Even better still, why not click onto our main pages and take the test online before you make the move to actually speak to anyone? Most claims can be handled by phone without any need for a further medical assessment. This will, of course, depend on your claim.
All compensation claims need to satisfy three main criteria. These are that:
- The accident happened within three years of the date of claim;
- The accident can be proven to have been someone else’s fault; and
- You received injuries as a result that required medical attention.
This does not necessarily mean suffering a broken bone — the damage can be mental or emotional. Many people, particularly after road accidents, suffer a complete loss of confidence behind the wheel that then greatly affects not only their daily lives, but their employment prospects as well. One thing to bear in mind is that the damage will have to be proven, so medical records of any treatment are important.
