    Expert accident claim advice

    If you have been hurt and the accident that caused your injuries was not your fault, you may be aware that you can claim compensation for your injuries. However, you may have little or no previous experience of such matters and be looking for expert accident claim advice.

    Evidence is always very important to a successful accident claim. There are a few steps you can take in order to help maximize your potential for compensation by gathering evidence

    • Take photos of the injury straight away to help prove the value of your claim.
    • Obtain the name, address and telephone number of all those involved as well as any witnesses and any police officer’s name and number.
    • Take pictures of the scene and the surrounding area from all angles as soon as possible.
    • Photograph any damage to property and obtain repair estimates

    The most important piece of expert accident claims advice is that you must start legal proceedings within three years of the accident. Failure to do this could result in the claim being disqualified. There are some occasions when the time-limitation rules do not apply as rigorously.  Our accident claim advice experts will be more than happy to talk you through the claims process if you are unsure whether you could claim compensation.

    • If you were under 18 when the accident happened then the 3-year period only starts to run from when you turn 18, so the limit is your 21st birthday.
    • If the injury was not obvious at the time of the accident or if the condition developed invidiously over time then the three years may start to run from when you were diagnosed or started to notice symptoms. This applies, for example, in the case of conditions like industrial deafness and mesothelioma.
    • Under certain circumstances the court can extend the time limits at its discretion.
