Do you have questions about making a claim for compensation?
You’re not alone. Accident Advice Helpline’s advisers receive over 25,000 enquiries a month from accident victims and deal with numerous cases every year. We understand that when it comes to compensation, it can be both confusing and overwhelming to know where to turn. We are here to alleviate the stress, and provide jargon-free, clear advice you can trust and understand. We know that after an accident, you may have a number of common concerns, such as:
How do I know if I am able to make a claim?
One of the first points of confusion after an accident is determining eligibility. The law in the UK stipulates that those injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence have a right to make a claim. If you have been in an accident for which you were no way at fault, you could be within your rights to make a Gedling no win no fee* accident claim – it’s that simple.
What about proving I wasn’t at fault?
You can provide a number of pieces of evidence that can help support the fact that you were not at fault for your accident. Photographs taken with a camera phone, CCTV images, statements from witnesses or passers-by and other information can be supplied in your defence, and can be instrumental in proving the negligence of another party was responsible for your accident.
My accident isn’t recent – is it too late for me to make a claim?
After an accident, you may be indisposed due to your injuries, or left facing a number of other repercussions that require your immediate attention. In order to give accident victims plenty of time to heal, there is a three-year window in place. As long as your accident took place within the past three years, you could be within your rights to make a claim, even if it was some time ago.
What about the costs involved; isn’t it expensive to make a Gedling no win no fee* accident compensation claim?
One of the most common concerns we encounter at Accident Advice Helpline is that of cost. After an accident, you could be facing a number of unexpected costs for things like healthcare, childcare while you attend appointments and much more. All of this can make the idea of hiring legal help seem impossible, but that’s not the case with Accident Advice Helpline. We operate with a conditional fee agreement (CFA) in place known as no win, no fee*. Under this agreement, there is no money required upfront to get a claim underway. To find out more about the costs involved with making a Gedling no win no fee* accident claim, call us today on the freephone number 0800 180 4123.
