An accident in High Peak requires a high quality lawyer from the local area – sounds about right doesn’t it? Well, that’s not always the case. As we’ll show you, the most important thing is finding someone who is an expert in compensation in High Peak. Here’s how you do it.
Finding your expert in compensation in High Peak
Firstly you need to know whether or not you are entitled to claim. The first question people ask us is often what types of accidents count for a personal injury claim. The answer to that is that it doesn’t matter so much. What really counts is whether the accident was bad enough to inflict a serious injury and whether it was your fault.
When you bring a claim to the court they will firstly look at the injuries you have sustained. They do not need to be long term or life threatening, but they do have to have had a significant impact on your quality of life, perhaps by reducing your ability to work or by forcing you to seek medical treatment.
One final thing to make sure you remember is the timing of the accident. By law you are entitled to claim compensation if the accident happened within the last three years. Any longer than that and regardless of how good your case might be, you won’t be entitled to anything. So, it pays to act quickly.
The next thing to do after an accident in High Peak is to get advice. You might go and speak to a local solicitor or call up an organisation such as Accident Advice Helpline. If you do this then you can expect a friendly, fast and expert response from our team. They will look at your case and tell you honestly what they believe you should do next. If they think you do not have a good case to bring, then they will tell you this. The one thing we’re not going to do is attempt to sell you anything. We’ll leave that to other firms.
However, if you do want help then we can find a team of people who can help after your accident. They may be based in the local area, but the one thing you can count on is that they will have the expertise to help you out.
Building your team
There are two things you might want to consider when building your team. The first is the expertise of the lawyers you have on your side and the second is the cost. With no legal aid available, you will not be able to make a claim unless you’re willing to pay legal fees, but if you choose Accident Advice Helpline we’ll work on the basis of no win no fee* which means that if you do not win your case, you won’t have to pay anything.
