If you have had an accident in the last three years that was not your fault, then there’s a good chance that you could be due some compensation. However, there’s an equally good chance that you might not have thought about claiming. This guide will help you find out what your rights are and how you can get help with an injury claim in Flamborough.
What are my rights?
Your rights are the same as anyone else’s – namely, you shouldn’t have your life interrupted by an injury caused by someone else’s carelessness. If that happens, you should have the right to be compensated for the trouble caused.
What types of injury are covered?
Claims might be sparked by an injury in any one of a number of situations. It could be an accident at work, or you might be hit by a reckless car driver. Illnesses contracted by medical malpractice are covered, as is food poisoning at a restaurant. If it has caused a disruption to your life and it wasn’t your fault, then you could claim.
Is there a time limit on claiming?
Yes, there is. Unfortunately the patience of the justice system is finite, and you can only claim for an injury that occurred during the past three years. Any longer than that and no matter how good your claim is, you won’t stand a chance.
Can I get consultation for free?
It is possible, although many experts differ in how they charge their fees. Some will charge you a consultation fee from the outset, which could mean that you have to shell out money only to be told that your claim simply is not strong enough.
The service we provide at Accident Advice Helpline is designed to ensure that does not happen. We offer a free telephone consultation for anyone who wants to understand their rights, so there’s nothing stopping you from dipping your toe in the water to have a look.
Can you tell me how much I might receive?
Assuming we feel that your claim has a realistic chance of success, we can provide an estimate for the level of compensation. This figure is worked out by taking an identified price for the injury itself and also any expenses you might have incurred as a result. This could be anything from travel costs to and from the hospital or ongoing medical treatment.
Once again, we should stress that this is only an estimate. If the other party contests the claim, then the case will be decided in the court and there is no way of knowing precisely how they might judge the case.
