I was asked recently what the most important factor in any personal injury claim might be. My answer was simple. Whether you’re looking to claim compensation in Dorset or anywhere else, the one thing you need more than anything else is information. The more you have of it, the stronger your position will be.
Claiming compensation in Dorset
The first information you need is about personal injury law in general – what the rules say and what your rights are. Then you’ll be in a much better position to know whether or not you should make a claim and if so how you should go about it.
Accident Advice Helpline has a huge amount of information available on our website. To make it more relevant to you we’ve divided it up into different sections to ensure you have information which is as specific as possible for your situation.
After that it’s a question of finding the best people to claim compensation in Dorset. You can do a local search or have a look at national firms such as Accident Advice Helpline who offer services in Dorset as well as elsewhere in the UK. By doing so you can improve your choice of services and make sure that you get someone who has the right experience for your particular type of accident.
As part of our service at Accident Advice Helpline we offer a lot of advice and information. The purpose behind this is to make it as easy as possible for you to make decisions on what to do next.
Information is crucial at this stage as it will help us decide what to do next and also how much compensation you should be entitled to. This enables us to provide an estimate about your likely compensation figure through something we call the 30 second test. This is a very simple approach which looks at your situation and decides how much you should claim. It’s only an estimate, but is useful in setting expectations and the more information we have about you and your case the more accurate it will be.
Information about your medical situation will also improve your chances of getting the full amount of compensation to which you’re entitled. That’s why it’s a good idea if you consult more than one doctor. Initial predictions can often be wrong so it’s worth getting a second opinion. Remember, give as much information as possible – we’ll decide what does and doesn’t work.
Paying for compensation in Dorset
Last but not least, remember to find out what you’ll pay and when. Like any service, personal injury law claims vary greatly in price. If you don’t have someone who can help you make a claim the chances are you’ll fall short.
