Getting injured in any sort of accident that was not your own fault is stressful and very unpleasant. This sort of experience comes out of the blue and leaves you, and the rest of your family, reeling from shock. It makes matters worse when the financial worries start to kick in as well and this is when you need to start thinking about talking to compensation experts in Huddersfield about making an accident and injury claim. We here at Accident Advice Helpline can give you all the help and advice you need to do just that.
Getting advice from compensation experts in Huddersfield
It is crucial that you get professional legal advice before you start to make a personal injury claim. This is because not all people are eligible to start a claim – you can waste a lot of time trying to start a personal injury claim that you stand no chance of winning.
Our compensation experts in Huddersfield can give you all the advice you need prior to starting your own claim. We have even devised a programme called the Accident Advice Helpline 30 second test which will tell you in just half a minute if your claim is likely to succeed. As an added bonus, our test will also give you an estimate of how much money you may get if you win your claim. Of course, this is only an estimate and is not a guaranteed amount as all claims are so different.
If you want to start an accident and injury claim it is essential that you fulfil the following criteria:
- Your accident must have been caused by another person. If you caused the accident yourself, you will not be able to claim because you will have no-one to claim from.
- Your accident must have been within the last there years – this is the legal time limit for personal injury claims following accidents for adults in the UK. If you were a child at the time of the accident you may have longer to claim.
- You must have received medical attention for your injuries so that you can present your medical notes as evidence.
