How long a Devon accident at work claim takes can depend on many different factors, one of them being if the other party admits they were at fault. In this situation, your Devon accident at work claim would be settled a lot quicker than if they decided to contest the claim
The slow responses to a Devon accident at work claim
Most of the time, at the other end of a Devon accident at work claim, there would be either an insurance company or government department. We all know how slow these huge organisations can be in responding to correspondence. There are legal time limits within which they should reply, but most of the time they will stretch to the limit as much as possible.
How you can speed up your claim
If you are asked for information, respond as quickly as you can, because if you delay, then your claim will be delayed.
Accident Advice Helpline will not cause delays
At Accident Advice Helpline, we will deal with everything associated to your claim as quickly as possible, as we want the whole process to be as easy and efficient as we can make it. As much as anything else, we do not want you to have more stress than is necessary, you will have had more than enough of that from the accident itself.
There are things other than speed to be concerned about
No one is able to tell you definitely how long your claim will take, but waiting a little longer is not always a bad thing. You need every aspect of your accident and injuries looked into, to make sure you get the fairest payment for your own circumstances.
There is the severity of your injuries to consider, the impact the injuries have had on your life, and of course any extra costs and losses that have arisen because of the accident.
All these things will be taken into account when you use the services of Accident Advice Helpline for assistance with your personal injury claim.
The accidents that claims are made for
We do not just deal with accidents at work, we handle claims for every type of accident you can imagine, including:
- Road traffic accidents
- Slips, trips and falls
- Accidents in schools
- Industrial illnesses and conditions
- Holiday accidents
These are just a very small sample of the accidents we deal with on a regular basis, and they all come within the scope of personal injury claims as long as they comply with the rules.
The rules for making a personal injury claim
The rules are fairly straightforward for personal injury claims, and you situation will either fit them or not:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained injuries that needed medical attention
- The accident must have happened within the last three years
