Depending on the circumstances, you could be entitled to claim compensation. Statistics show that out of ten people eligible to make a claim, only three will actually go on to do so. Don’t miss out on your right to claim; if you have been hurt and are unsure of whether or not you are eligible to take legal action, read on to find answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about making Halton claims for compensation.
How do I know if I can make Halton claims?
Under UK law, you can make a claim if you have been injured within the past three years in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. You should be able to prove that you were in no way at fault for the accident to better the chances of a successful outcome. For example, if you were stationary at a junction and the car behind failed to stop due to driver distraction, this could be counted as negligence and in this instance, you could be able to claim compensation.
How much are Halton claims worth?
Every case of personal injury is different, and the amount awarded takes into account a number of individual factors. Therefore, it’s best to get a quote based on the circumstances surrounding your accident and injury rather than research averages and figures. This can be done in as little as thirty seconds thanks to our online claims calculator, or you can call our helpline to have your case assessed by a claims adviser.
How much does it cost?
In order to make it as affordable as possible to make a claim, Accident Advice Helpline undertakes cases on a no win, no fee basis. This means you don’t have to pay anything upfront to make a claim, making it a little easier and more affordable to get started.
Am I being “greedy” by making a claim?
If you were in a car accident, you would make an insurance claim for the damage done to your vehicle. So why would you not make a claim for the damage done to you? Living with an injury affects more than just your physical being – it affects your ability to earn income, your relationships and almost every other aspect of your life. If you have been made to suffer this because of someone else’s negligence, you have a legal right to make a claim, and you should never feel bad about acting on this right.
