If you have been in a car accident, you will doubtless have experienced some hassle. Your car may have been in the garage for repairs – or, worse still, it could have been written off. You may, as a result of the car accident, also have suffered personal injury.
This is often in the form of whiplash, in which the sudden impact causes damage to the ligaments and tendons in the neck. Whether it is whiplash or another injury, a personal injury lawyer in Norwich could help you to claim compensation.
Why claim compensation for injury from a car accident?
There is a lot of distress caused when you have suffered personal injury as a result of a car accident caused by someone else. In addition to the physical injury, you may feel anxious about driving – and other areas of your life could be affected.
If you are receiving medical treatment, you could be travelling on public transport, which means you are incurring further costs. You may also need to sort out childcare, or have a home help.
All of these, and many other things, cost money. This is where Accident Advice Helpline comes in.
How can I find a personal injury lawyer in Norwich?
Simply call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to speak to one of our advisors. If you have a mobile phone, call us on 0333 500 0993 or text “claim365” to 80100. It doesn’t matter when you call or text, because our helpline is open 24/7.
What can I do to help my claim proceed?
First of all, make sure you make your claim within three years of suffering your personal injury. But before you call us, there are other important things to consider.
Evidence is key. Details and photographs are highly beneficial when making a claim. Make sure you gather the details of the other party or parties involved in the accident, as well as the contact details for any witnesses at the scene.
Do you have a camera or does your mobile take photos? If so, take as many shots as you can. Photograph any injuries you have, as well as damage to the car – be sure to take the photos from several angles. Also photograph the road conditions, hazards, and any damage to street furniture such as road signs and street lights.
Also, see a doctor. Keep records of your medical treatment and receipts for prescriptions and any other costs incurred.
How do I know if I qualify for compensation?
Your advisor will be able to assist, but you can also take the 30 second test on our website. This is a free, easy-to-use calculator that tells you whether you qualify and, if so, it will give you an estimate of the value of your claim.
If you do qualify and wish to proceed (there is no obligation) you will be in the hands of an in house personal injury lawyer in Norwich who works on a 100% no win no fee basis.
