Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we successfully fight thousands of compensation claims every year. And yet, when people first get in touch with us, they generally ask the same questions. Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions from our clients in Tameside, from asking the cost of claiming in Tameside to how long do I have to submit my claim for compensation.
Question 1 – What is the cost of claiming in Tameside?
Most people are concerned about the cost of their claim, Tameside residents included. And within the cost of the claim, most people think that the solicitor’s fees will be the biggest problem. But the good news is that when you claim with Accident Advice Helpline, your personal injury solicitor fights your case on a no win no fee basis. So you can’t lose. If your case is not successful, there are no legal fees. If your case is successful, in the majority of cases we can reclaim the fees from the other party, but in any case no fees are due until your compensation is awarded. So you never have to find money to pay for your solicitor in Tameside or anywhere in the UK.
Question 2 – What accidents can I claim for?
Your eligibility to claim comes down to three very simple questions:
- Who is to blame for your accident? Your accident needs to have been cased by someone else’s carelessness or negligence.
- When did your accident take place? Generally, your accident needs to have been within the last three years, but there are exclusions, as we explain below.
- Did you seek medical attention? You need to have seen a doctor or visited hospital as a result of your injuries.
If you feel that you fit all three of these criteria, then call us for a no obligation chat about your eligibility to make a claim.
Question 3 – How long do I have to submit my claim?
Almost all claims have a three year time limit. After this, we will not be able to help you submit a claim. The main exceptions to this rule include accidents that happen before your 18th birthday and industrial injuries that take place over a period of time, such as industrial deafness, asbestos poisoning and vibration white finger.
