If you have been in an accident, you may have a number of questions about what to do, and who to turn to. Accident Advice Helpline are specialist compensation solicitors in Waltham Forest.
After handling insurance and getting the medical attention you need, our thoughts may turn to receiving the compensation you could be entitled to. Depending on the circumstances of the accident in which you have been injured, you could be able to make a claim and potentially receive thousands of pounds in a payout. Here, we answer some of the most oft-asked questions about compensation after a car accident:
Can Accident Advice Helpline tell me if I am eligible to make a claim?
You can make a compensation claim if you have been injured within the past three years, and were hurt in an accident that was in no way your fault. This means that if someone else’s negligence has lead to your accident, you could be within your rights to make a claim and hold them responsible for this recklessness. As long as you were the innocent party, you could be able to claim compensation.
Where should I start?
Following an accident, it’s important to report it to the relevant authorities right away. You should also retain copies of things like medical reports and witness statements or contact information, as this can help strengthen your case when it comes to claiming compensation.
How much will I receive?
The amount you could receive in compensation will depend on a number of factors. These include not just the extent of your physical injuries, but also the emotional stress caused by the accident, any financial difficulty you may be facing because of it, and more. You can get a quick quote with Accident Advice Helpline using our thirty-second claims calculator, or you can enter some more details into a longer form to have this assessed by a friendly claims adviser.
My children were injured during the accident. Can I make a claim for them?
