Compensation in Porthcawl
To find out how much compensation in Porthcawl you could be entitled to as a result of your accident and injuries you can simply take our 30-second test today. Alternatively you can contact us on our freephone helpline from a landline and we will be able to provide you with some free, no obligation advice.
No matter how you decide to get in touch with us we would like to assure you that there will be no pressure from us on you to continue with your claim either now, or in the future. However, it is important that you are aware that there are strict legal deadlines in place when it comes to seeking compensation.
For various reasons time limits exist which stipulate how long you have to make a claim for compensation. This is usually three years, and it simply means that within the three years after your accident you must have initiated a claim for compensation in Porthcawl if it is your intention to do so. If you leave it more than three years there is a good chance that no solicitor, let alone those at Accident Advice Helpline, will be able to help you as the claim will just be thrown out of court.
Of course, there are some situations in which these deadlines can be extended. The most obvious is involving compensation claims with minors. If you have been injured in an accident and you are under the age of 18 you can decide to wait until you turn 18 to make a claim. Alternatively, someone could represent you and make a claim earlier. Should you decide to wait then you will have until the day before your 18th Birthday to start a claim, even if this is more than three years from the date of the accident.
If your three year deadline is approaching please contact Accident Advice Helpline immediately to discuss whether or not you might have the option to wait slightly longer.
Making a claim
Making a claim for compensation is a simple enough process, especially when you are using a firm such as Accident Advice Helpline. This is because our solicitors and advisers will take all the strain and stress out of claiming for you. They will deal with all the paperwork and only send you the important bits of information you need to know as your claim progresses. For the majority of cases you won’t even need to attend court as claims are often settled amicably before having to reach this stage.
To start your claim call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 (landlines) or 0333 500 0993 (mobiles).
