Thanks to the many bogus claims that have been made in the past few years, the making of a compensation claim has earned a rather tarnished reputation. For too long, people have been making claims that were perhaps not justified, and this has led to a tightening of the rules around making a claim. It also led to a whole host of personal injury claim companies being set up, all of whom can be found advertising their assistance on the television, radio, and even on street corners.
If you have ever considered making a compensation claim in Wallasey, the area will have plenty of legal firms for you to choose from. You may have been confused as to where to begin. Add this to the slightly tarnished reputation that making a claim has been given and you may well be avoiding making a claim for what is rightfully yours: compensation.
Fortunately for you and many others in your situation, there are companies out there who see compensation claims for what they are — a right to be compensated for suffering at someone else’s hands. Genuine claimants need not be put off making a claim, as companies like Accident Advice Helpline are there to help people to understand their rights and how they can help. We do not see any call as a waste of time or advise people to embark on claims that we do not feel have a good chance of being successful. We are here to help, and that means giving the best advice in the circumstances.
What we would ask you
One of the first things that our adviser would ask you is when the accident happened. We operate what is known as a 30-second test, which will confirm your eligibility to make a claim. To satisfy the current legal criteria, you must have suffered your accident in the three years prior to the date of the claim, it must have been someone else’s fault and you must have suffered an injury as a result.
If you cannot answer yes to all these questions, then we could advise you on where your case was letting you down. Accidents that occur in the workplace are governed by a different set of rules and more time is given for these claims to be made.
Costs and small print
If you decide you want to make a compensation claim in Wallasey, understand that there may be costs involved. After all, no one can expect a solicitor to work on their behalf free of charge. But all costs will be explained to you in your call to Accident Advice Helpline. This initial call places you under no obligation and you are free to make your claim with whoever you wish.
