If you have been involved in a fall from height in Burnley, we here at Accident Advice Helpline want to help you out. On this page, we are going to detail the process that we follow to help you to get the compensation that you are entitled to.
The initial phone call
The process will begin with a simple phone call to our team of experienced staff. The purpose of this phone call is to help you to determine whether Accident Advice Helpline is a good fit for your compensation claim or not. There is absolutely no obligation on your part at this point. We know that the process of claiming compensation can be a pretty big step for anybody, so we want to ensure that you make the right decision.
We will be looking for three very distinct elements in your case. Your case will need to meet the system that we have place for the ‘ideal case’ if you wish to be able to claim compensation for your fall from height in Burnley through us:
- When did the incident occur? If you wish to claim compensation through us, you will need to start the process within three years of the incident occurring.
- Were you hurt? You can’t claim compensation through Accident Advice Helpline if you have not suffered an injury. You will need to provide us with a medical report which outlines the severity of your injuries. If you can’t do that, we can’t help you with your compensation claim.
- You must be able to demonstrate that it was the negligent actions of another person which led to your injuries occurring. We will help you to gather the evidence that you need here.
The next steps
Once we have determined whether your case is suitable for our team or not, and you are able to start working with us, we will move onto the next steps.
The bulk of the work that we do at the start will be to determine how much compensation you may be entitled to. This will be determined by the severity of your injuries. The more severe they are, the more compensation you will be entitled to. Any financial losses which also be factored into the equation.
We will also start to gather the evidence that you need to prove your claim. We aim to have most cases wrapped up within a year, although, of course, slightly more complex cases may take longer and, as a result, we can’t offer any guarantees with regards to how long a case may take to deal with.
