Are you looking for help hiring an expert lawyer in Lewes
If you’ve been involved in an accident which was not your fault there is a chance that you may be entitled to claim compensation as a result. If you are looking for help hiring an expert lawyer in Lewes you have come to the right place. This article will help you look into your rights in more detail and make an informed decision about whether or not you want to take your case further.
When you’ve been hurt in an accident
After an accident your first reaction will obviously be to ensure you get the immediate emergency treatment you need for your injuries. However, you shouldn’t leave it too long before making a claim.
By law there is a three year time limit on all personal injury claims so it’s better to make a claim sooner rather than later. Although three years might seem to be a long time, you’d be surprised at how quickly it can slip by.
Assessing your claim
When people contact us at Accident Advice Helpline they often immediately ask us what accidents they can claim for. Our response is that the actual accident itself is not as important as whether or not it qualifies under the law for compensation.
Here in the UK we operate on the basis that if you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you will be entitled to claim compensation if the injuries were severe enough to require medical attention and as long as the accident was not your fault – and by extension was somebody else’s fault.
Going to court
The good news that comes as a relief to many people is that in most cases you may well not have to go to court at all. Most personal injury cases are settled out of court. That’s because the chances are you’ll be claiming against an insurance company who have their own legal team in place. They will avoid going to court if they think they will not win – so will probably come up with a settlement.
