Need to find a personal injury lawyer feeling unsure as to whether you have a legitimate claim for compensation in Dunchirch? Worry not – our easy guide will tell you if you have a case to pursue.
Are you eligible for a claim?
1. Did your injury happen within the past three years?
Time is a factor, so before we even get into the ins and outs of whether your claim is valid or not we need to look at how long ago it took place. Regulations stipulate that you can only claim for injuries which took place within the last three years. Any longer than that and unfortunately you won’t qualify, no matter how good your claim.
2. Was it your fault?
If the injury was not your fault, then it stands to reason that you deserve compensation for the difficulties and pain you have suffered. For example, if you suffered a fall at work because safety precautions were not followed, you will have a good case.
3. What type of injury was it?
Different types of injury attract different levels of compensation. For example, a minor injury like a sprain could leave you incapacitated for a few weeks, but will have relatively limited long-term consequences. In this instance you may be compensated for any medical treatments you’ve had to undertake, as well as any time off work. A more serious break could involve months on the sidelines and may even render you unable to continue doing your job. This will naturally require a more significant compensation sum.
Assessing your claim for compensation in Dunchurch
So, let’s assume that you’ve gone through this checklist and are convinced that you are entitled to compensation. Well, it still pays to consult an expert, but they can be expensive. You can instead choose to contact Accident Advice Helpline for a quick, free consultation to determine if you are in line for any compensation for your injuries.
Our experts will listen to your requirements and make a recommendation based on what you’ve said as to whether you should press ahead with a claim. It’s important to get this decision right, as going ahead when you have only a slim chance of success will probably waste your time and money.
In most cases this consultation will be sufficient to decide whether you should make a claim, although we may advise a follow-up consultation, perhaps for medical assessment. This consultation is free of charge and you have no obligation to use any of the lawyers we recommend. This is designed to give you complete peace of mind.
