How to claim compensation in Newham
If you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation in Newham.
The steps for making a claim for compensation in Newham are pretty simple, and here at the Accident Advice Helpline we can talk you through the entire process.
First step: are you eligible?
Making a claim for compensation in Newham is only possible if you meet the criteria for starting this legal process. One of the easiest ways to find out whether or not you qualify is to take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test. By entering some basic information about your claim, and the type of injury you have had, we can tell you almost immediately not only if you can claim, but how much compensation you could be entitled to.
Once you know this you can pick up the phone and speak to one of our advisers. They will be able to provide you with free, no obligation advice and can then put you in touch with one of our specialist solicitors to get your case started.
Once you have been put in touch with our solicitor they will be able to gather all the information necessary to start your claim for compensation in Newham. This will involve speaking to you about your accident, and gathering your account of what happened. They will also need to speak to anyone else who is prepared and able to act as a witness for you.
If you have any photographs, CCTV footage or sketches of the accident or the scene of the accident these will also be helpful for your case. You will also need to sign a form to provide your solicitor with access to your medical records. This will help your solicitor provide evidence of how you have been affected by your accident, and establish how much compensation you could be entitled to.
Your solicitor will then arrange for you to be assessed by an independent medical expert. This will help ascertain if there are likely to be any ongoing effects from your injuries, and if these need to be taken into account when finalising your claim for compensation in Newham. The medical expert will write a report which you will be provided a copy of.
Settling your claim for compensation in Newham
Once all the necessary evidence and documentation has been gathered your solicitor will write to you to advise you of how much compensation the third party are offering. Your solicitor will be able to tell you whether this is a fair amount based on your injuries.
Your solicitor will always do all they can to make sure you receive the maximum amount of compensation that you are entitled to, including coverage of loss of earnings or out of pocket expenses.
