Claiming compensation with expert injury solicitors in Warwickshire
If you have been involved in an accident, you may be confused about your rights when it comes to compensation. Many people don’t realise that seeking compensation is in fact a legal right. If you have been injured in an accident that was caused directly by another party’s negligence, you could be within your rights to make a claim. Aside from being a legal right, it is the morally right thing to do, too. You shouldn’t be left to suffer if the driver of an oversized vehicle such as a lorry, bus or agricultural vehicle has caused an accident.
Who can make a claim?
You can make a claim if you were not in any way at fault for the accident. If the lorry driver was responsible, they should be held accountable, and you as the innocent injured party can ensure that happens, but you may want to access help from expert injury solicitors in Warwickshire.
How long does it take to make a compensation claim for Warwickshire road traffic accidents?
The amount of time it takes to settle a case varies, but in cases where the HGV operator was clearly at fault, they may wish to settle out of court. In these cases, it can be just a matter of weeks between initiating a claim, and receiving the money in a payout.
How much are HGV Warwickshire road traffic accident claims worth?
Every road traffic accident is different, and so too are compensation claims for the injuries sustained in them. For example, the amount awarded to a victim living with mild whiplash will be different to that awarded to someone nursing life-long injuries. To find out how much your specific claim is worth, take thirty seconds to fill in our claims calculator online. With this tool, you can see almost instantly how much you could be entitled to with help from Accident Advice Helpline.
How much do I have to pay to seek compensation?
With Accident Advice Helpline, you don’t have to pay anything upfront to get a claim underway. This is because we work on what is known as a no win, no fee agreement, a conditional fee agreement (CFA) that stipulates you do not have to pay if your claim is lost.
Is there a time limit?
There is no minimum time to wait after being involved in an accident to start a claim – in fact, many consider it beneficial to do so sooner rather than later. In accordance with UK law, you have up to three years from the date of the accident to seek compensation for it.
