    Compensation in Coventry

    Have you been hurt in an accident recently which has left you injured? Are you struggling to cope with life, and could compensation help you back onto your feet? If so, Accident Advice Helpline could be the best place to go for help and support. Here’s all the information you need to find out whether you can or can’t claim compensation in Coventry.

    Assessing your chances

    An old general said that the secret of success was picking the battles you can win. That’s certainly the case in personal injury law. There is sometimes a vision of people who are making claims on the off chance, but the reality is very different. In truth the rules surrounding who can and can’t make a claim are pretty tight, so before you go off and make a claim for compensation in Coventry, it’s worth doing a little research to find out whether you can or can’t win.

    In short, the best thing to do is work off a checklist, by measuring your claim against these issues.

    1. Were you hurt in the last three years? This is perhaps the first thing you should think about. There is a three year limit on all personal injury claims which means anything left longer than that will not qualify no matter how good your case might be.

    Three years may seem like a long time, but it’s surprising how easy it can be to let things slide, especially for people who have been waiting a while. The moral of this story is not to waste time and look into whether or not you can claim as soon as you can.

    2. Was the accident your own fault? If you were to blame for your own accident then the truth is that you will not be able to make a claim. You’ll have to show that you were not responsible for your own troubles and that, by extension, someone else was.

    3. How badly were you hurt? Compensation does not cover all injuries. For example it’s not there to cover the mental trauma caused by a stubbed toe. What it is there to do is help you out in your recovery after serious injuries which have had a measurable effect on your quality of life. When going to court, you’ll have to provide evidence for this effect and how it has held you back.

    Paying for compensation in Coventry

    Once you have satisfied yourself that you have a good chance of winning, it’s time to find a lawyer, but this can be expensive especially if that lawyer proves unsuccessful. However, if you work with us at Accident Advice Helpline you’ll have the benefit of working on the basis of no win no fee. This means that no matter what happens, the only time you’ll have to pay will be if you win.

    So, to find out how we can help you claim compensation in Coventry, call our team on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
