Were you injured?
If you wish for help with compensation in Islington through Accident Advice Helpline, you must have suffered an injury. We do not deal with any other type of compensation claim here.
Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to have suffered an incredibly serious injury in order to claim compensation through Accident Advice Helpline. In fact, most of the claims that we deal with here are for fairly minor injuries (whiplash and the like). What you will have to do, however, is to provide us with evidence of the injuries that you have suffered. The only evidence that we will be able to accept here at Accident Advice Helpline will be your medical report. This is something which will need to be prepared as soon as possible after the incident, so make sure you head to the doctor or hospital to have your injuries looked at!
When did the accident occur?
If you attempt to claim compensation more than three years after the incident which led to your injuries occurred, then it is unlikely that you will be able to claim compensation. Yes, there are a few exceptions to this rule. For example; you may be able to claim outside of this time limit if you are suffering from an industrial disease or even if you were a minor at the time of the incident. However, in all cases, we do urge you to start that claim for compensation as soon as possible.
Who is to blame?
You must be able to prove that somebody was negligent. You can’t be the party at fault. This, essentially, means that the actions that another person took were dangerous and it was these actions which led to your injuries occurring. You must also be able to prove that the other party had a responsibility towards you to ensure that you stayed safe. For example; drivers on the road have a duty of care towards other road users.
