Here at Accident Advice Helpline we get asked a lot of questions each month from new or prospective clients. Generally people want to know about how to make a Waveney compensation claim, and what they can claim for, as well as how much they might be entitled to.
We have decided to provide you with the answers to the most frequently asked questions in the hope of providing you with more compensation information in Waveney. If you do have any other questions though, please get in touch with us and we will do all we can to help you.
Who can make a claim?
Anyone can make a claim if they meet the criteria. Generally speaking you have to be 18 years of age; however, if a minor has been injured then someone (usually a family member) can act as a litigation friend and make a claim on their behalf.
What is the criteria for making a Waveney compensation claim?
The criteria is very simple:
- You must have been involved in an accident
- The accident must have caused you some form of personal injury
- The accident should not have been your fault
- The accident must have occurred within the last three years
If you can meet all these criteria then you will definitely be able to make a Waveney compensation claim. Your solicitor may also be able to help you even if you were partly responsible for your accident, or it occurred more than three years ago. There are some situations in which allowances can be made, so it is best to seek the expert advice of an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor to find out more.
What can you claim for?
It is possible to make a Waveney compensation claim for any type of accident and injury – it all depends on your situation.
Our solicitors have helped people claim for accidents which have occurred at work, in public places or even within their own homes. We have also helped people who have suffered whiplash, broken bones, or more serious injuries including spinal injuries and head traumas.
No matter what the situation, or how complicated your particular case may appear to be, we will have a solicitor or expert on hand who can help you get the compensation that you are entitled to.
How much could I claim?
The amount of Waveney compensation you may be able to claim as a result of your accident will vary depending on several factors.
For example, the type of injury you have sustained. It goes without saying that the more serious the injury, the more compensation you are likely to receive. Especially if you have to receive ongoing treatment or are always going to be affected by your injury.
