How Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation in North Tyneside
If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault in the last three years, and have suffered a personal injury as a result, then Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation in North Tyneside.
Are you entitled to claim?
The first step in being able to make a claim for compensation in North Tyneside is establishing whether or not you are entitled to do so.
Accident Advice Helpline has developed its own special test, called the 30 second test, which can tell you almost immediately whether or not you could be entitled to claim compensation in North Tyneside. All you need to do is fill in some basic information about the type of accident you have had and the nature of your injuries. We will then do the rest.
The test can also tell you how much your claim for compensation in North Tyneside might be worth to you, based on the pain and suffering you are likely to have experienced as a result of your injuries.
Proving your entitlement to claim compensation in North Tyneside
Once we know that you are legally entitled to make a claim it is the responsibility of your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor to prove that you are entitled to the compensation in North Tyneside that we believe you are.
This is initially done through access to your medical records. We will be able to demonstrate that the injuries you sustained were indeed caused as a result of your accident, and will be able to outline the effect that these have had on your day to day life. It is after all for these injuries that you will be receiving compensation in North Tyneside in the first place.
Your solicitor will also arrange for you to be seen by a medical expert who will independently examine you and assess your injuries. They will write a report outlining the extent of your injuries, and how long they believe you will take to fully recover. This report will then help determine the amount of general damages compensation in North Tyneside that you will receive.
Wherever your accident took place your solicitor will then help establish that someone else was liable. If you have been injured in an accident at work they will show why your employer should have been able to foresee an accident occurring, and should have taken steps to prevent it from doing so. The same is true for accidents in public places and road traffic accidents.
Time limits apply
It is important to remember that there are strict time limits which must be adhered to when making a claim for compensation in North Tyneside. A claim must be initiated within three years of the date of your accident or injury.
