Here are some FAQs about making a claim with experienced accident lawyers in Gloucester with Accident Advice Helpline.
How do I know if I have a case?
To determine whether you should make a claim, you need to be able to prove three things to be true:
Firstly, you will need to prove that your injuries are as the result of someone else’s error or negligence.
Secondly, you need to have seen a doctor for your injuries.
Finally, the incident must have occurred within the past three years. This is the time limit on all personal injury cases, apart from industrial disease cases, and those cases in which the claimant was a minor at the time of the accident.
What happens if I don’t win?
When you choose Accident Advice Helpline to make your accident claim in Gloucester, there’s no guarantee that you will win.
However, you will be pleased to know that all of our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis, which gives you peace of mind in the event that your case is unsuccessful.
Will I have to go to court?
It is unlikely. In fact, fewer than three per cent of personal injury cases end up in the courtroom. Both parties will want to resolve the issue as quickly and smoothly as possible.
How much compensation will I receive?
This all depends on the unique circumstances of your case. You can take the quick 30-second test on our website to get a good idea.
Nevertheless, it is vital to know that compensation is split into two parts, general damages and special damages. The former compensates you for your suffering, whilst the latter is designed to compensate you for any money you have had to spend as a result of your injuries.
Can I make a claim against my employer?
Yes. If your employer is at fault for the injuries you have sustained, you can make a workplace accident claim. They will have insurance in place to cover them for such incidents.
