If you have been hurt in an accident, you could be wondering about your rights to compensation.
Under UK law, anyone injured in an accident that occurred as a direct result of negligence has a right to make a claim for those injuries. You have up to three years from the date of the accident in which to make a claim, giving you the opportunity to heal and become well enough to pursue legal action.
For many people, the idea of making a compensation claim can be daunting, which leads them to forgo this legal right and miss out on what could have been anything from hundreds to thousands of pounds in a payout. At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re committed to making sure everyone that wants to make a claim is able to do so, which is why we’ve clarified the steps you need to take when it comes to pursuing Hambleton claims.
Find out if you are eligible
Not all parties in an accident can make a claim. In order to seek compensation, you must be the innocent party, and ideally be able to prove that someone else’s negligence caused the accident to take place. If you are unsure where you stand, we have a team of Hambleton claims advisers standing by that can help answer questions and assess whether or not you are able to make a claim.
