If you’ve been injured you can be forgiven for having a lot on your mind, but one of the most important things you should be thinking about is compensation. This is why, after an accident in Horsham, Accident Advice Helpline should be one of the first people you speak to.
Coping after being injured in an accident in Horsham
If you’ve been injured in an accident in Horsham then you have many priorities all battling for attention. The most obvious is to make sure your health is safeguarded and that means making sure you get the best possible treatment.
But you should not leave it too long before you consult a lawyer. This is because the compensation you receive could prove to be very important in helping you in your recovery. This is because some of the possible medical treatments you might receive might not be free of charge through the NHS. There may be other treatments you feel will be useful in which case, compensation could be important in helping you access it.
Assessing your claim
Therefore, once you’re feeling settled you should start assessing your case against what the law says. It’s surprising how often people fail to do this and as a result end up failing to claim the compensation they are owed.
Delaying can lead to more problems than simply postponing the point at which you receive compensation. There is a time limit of three years on any personal injury claims and although that might seem like a lot it’s often a much shorter time than you might hope.
Making your own assessment is important as it encourages you to do research and build up your own knowledge. This will mean you’re in a much better position once you start discussing your options with a law firm.
However, it’s always worth speaking to an expert to get their opinion. They can tell you things you might not have worked out yet and can advise you on the best way to improve your chances of winning your case.
