What is personal injury compensation for?
Personal injury compensation is there to help you get your life and finances back on track after your ordeal; you can claim for any injury, or illness, that was caused by someone else’s negligence, i.e. following an accident that ‘wasn’t your fault’. You have three years in which to file your claim.
The amount of money that you receive will depend on how serious your injury was and how much of an impact it had on your life, but you can get an estimate of how much you could be awarded by using the compensation calculator tool on our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
Part of your compensation payment will be to reimburse you for any accident related expenses. You can claim money back for things like childcare, travel expenses, the cost of private medical care and so on. Your lawyer will be able to tell you what you can and can’t claim for, but for now make a note of anything that you think you should be reimbursed for. And please make sure you keep hold of any supporting evidence, such as receipts and bank statements!
The claim process
When you come to claim you will need to an injury lawyer to take your claim through the legal process, as a national law firm, we have no win no fee lawyers in West Sussex who can do this for you.
Our no win no fee lawyers will do everything in their power to get you your money as quickly as possible and it is quite likely that they can get you your compensation without you having to attend court – but if you do have to go to court though please bear in mind that this will be a civil court; a much less stressful environment than a criminal one!
In order to get a fair assessment of your injuries, you may be asked to attend a medical. This is nothing to worry about; medicals are not there to catch people out, but to get an assessment from a specialist rather than a general practitioner. Your medical will be arranged at time convenient to you and shouldn’t take too long.
Whatever happens when you claim, your lawyers will keep you informed along the way and will always treat you with understanding and empathy.
