Could you make a claim for compensation?
If you have been injured in an accident, or been involved in an incident of some description that has caused you any form of personal injury then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
The easiest way to find out if you are entitled to claim compensation is to take the Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test. This will quickly and easily tell you if you can make a claim, as well as providing you with information as to how much compensation our Dartford accident claim solicitors might be able to claim on your behalf.
Once you know that you can make a claim for compensation with our Dartford accident claim solicitors it is important that you do not delay getting in touch with the Accident Advice Helpline to initiate this claim.
Don’t put off making a claim for compensation
Due to legal stipulations it is vitally important that you get in touch with our Dartford accident claim solicitors as soon as possible after your accident to initiate your claim. Legally speaking you have to have initiated a claim for compensation within three years of the date of the accident that caused your injuries, or three years from the date that you first became aware of your condition (if it is a medical illness).
There are some situations in which the time limits can be extended, but these generally relate to industrial diseases and in situations where minors have been injured. Our Dartford accident claim solicitors will be able to provide you with information specific to your case and claim, but it is important you contact us sooner rather than later so you do not miss out on the chance to claim.
Why people put off making a claim
Over the years the Dartford accident claim solicitors working here at the Accident Advice Helpline have had countless people get in touch wanting to make a claim, only to be told that as the time limit has expired they are unable to do so. Why then do people decide to leave it too late before getting in touch to make a claim?
For some people it is just bad luck. They are not necessarily aware that they could be entitled to make a claim for their injuries, and by the time they do find out it is too late. Thankfully as more awareness is created this is becoming less common as a reason.
Other people decided to wait to contact Dartford accident claim solicitors until they have fully recovered from their injuries. In some situations such recovery takes longer than anticipated and time runs out before they feel able to start a claim.
