Can I make a claim if I have been injured in a collision in Winchester?
If you have been involved in an accident, you may be wondering if you are eligible to make a claim. Under UK law, only certain parties involved in the accident are able to claim compensation. To make a claim, you must have been in no way responsible for the accident, and be able to prove that the negligence of another party led to the collision. Your accident must have also taken place within the past three years, and your injuries must have needed medical attention.
How much could I claim?
All road traffic accidents are different, and therefore the amount awarded in each individual case can vary greatly. For some people left with minor or moderate injuries, the compensation sum can be worth hundreds of pounds, while those suffering severe or permanent injuries can receive thousands. If you have been injured in a collision in Winchester that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries.
You can claim to be reimbursed for any money spent on medical treatments, money lost in income, and more. With our online claims calculator, you can see how much you could be owed in just 30 seconds, or you can call our helpline to have your case assessed by a claims adviser.
How long does it take to make a claim?
In straightforward cases, it can only takes a few weeks to settle a claim, while more complicated cases can take longer. At Accident Advice Helpline, we always strive to reach fast, hassle-free settlements for our clients wherever possible.
Is it expensive to work with a lawyer that specialises in road traffic accidents?
Because our services our no win, no fee, there is no money payable upfront to start a claim, and nothing payable at all if your claim is not successful. We adopt this payment policy in order to make it affordable for all road traffic accident victims to afford the legal care they need.
Will I have to go to court?
You may not necessarily have to go to court to settle a claim, as some claims are settled before they reach this stage. If there is clear evidence of negligence, the guilty party may wish to avoid a hearing, making it quicker and less stressful for you to receive your personal injury compensation.
