To help you get started here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
How can I find out if I can claim?
One of our advisors will be happy to tell you if you are eligible to claim compensation – and for free, we do not charge a consultation fee for this service. As a general rule though, you can claim for any injury, so long as someone else was to blame for the accident that caused you to be injured.
Can I get legal aid?
Unfortunately not, the UK Government stopped providing legal aid funding for personal injury claims in 1998. But don’t worry you can still claim without having to pay upfront costs; all you need to do is use a lawyer who will work for you under a no win no fee* contract.
How long do I have to claim?
You have three years from the date of your accident in which to file your Grangemouth no win no fee* compensation claim with an injury lawyer. But make sure that you are fully recovered before you claim, otherwise you may not get all of the compensation that you would have been entitled to!
Will I have to go to court?
It is unlikely, as most personal injury claims are settled in out of court agreements.
Can I claim back the money I have sent on injury related expenses?
Yes, the injury lawyer who works on your Grangemouth no win no fee* compensation claim will make sure that you are reimbursed for any injury related expenses, so make sure that you keep track of what you are spending, and retain the relevant receipts.
Can I claim on behalf of my child?
Yes, if your child has been injured in an accident you can make a Grangemouth no win no fee* compensation claim on their behalf.
How much money will I get?
The amount of compensation that you are awarded will depend on the extent of your injuries, but you can get an estimate of how much your claim could be worth by using the 30 Second Compensation Calculator tool on our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
