Free claims advice in Erskine
Unfortunately personal injury claims can and do occur, at any time and place. Sometimes there’s absolutely nothing you can do as an individual to stop this. Thus you end up injured no matter what you do. In such situations, though, it may be that someone is still liable for the accident. By this we mean that they are responsible for having caused it, either directly or indirectly. If this is the case then here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can provide you with free claims advice in Erskine. We may be able to help you secure financial compensation for the injuries you have suffered too.
Making a claim
Making a claim for compensation hinges on a couple of important factors. Firstly, that the accident in question caused you some form of injury. This is important because it’s the injury that will secure you compensation. In some instances the injury does not need to be exceptionally severe or life altering, but it does have to have been significant enough that your personal injury claims solicitor can demonstrate that it had some form of impact on your life.
For example, you may have suffered whiplash as a result of a road traffic collision. In this instance, the injury itself may not have been terribly severe. Aside from standard neck pain and headache, whiplash tends to resolve itself after a few days of rest. However, these few days of rest could mean that you were unable to attend work. As a result, you may have missed out on income. If this is the case, your personal injury claims solicitor will be able to demonstrate that you have lost some income as a direct result of the accident. They’ll be able to arrange for this to be repaid to you in the form of compensation.
You may also have incurred out of pocket expenses even as a result of your injury. After seeking medical treatment, your doctor may have written you a prescription for pain medication to ease your pain. Such prescription charges can also be recovered as part of your claim. All you need to do is advise your solicitor, and provide them with the necessary proof of purchase receipts.
We’ll also arrange for you to be assessed by an independent medical expert who will review your injuries. It may be determined that you are likely to need some form of ongoing treatment for your injury. This is especially true if you already had a pre-existing neck or back condition. Injuries often make pre-existing conditions worse.
