Injured in Suffolk Coastal? Broken bones, along with whiplash, are without a doubt some of the most common injuries dealt with in car accidents. On this page, we are going to walk you through the process of making a compensation claim in Suffolk Coastal for your injuries.
Visit the hospital or doctor if you have been injured in Suffolk Coastal
This should, hopefully, be fairly obvious. Thankfully, the vast majority of people who suffer broken bones will be sensible enough to go to the doctor or hospital as soon as possible. Most broken bones, particularly those which are nothing more than a hairline fracture, can be dealt with straight away.
Some other injuries (i.e. if the bone has snapped and moved out of place) may need surgery in order to put right. This surgery will not happen straight away, unless the accident is serious. It may happen a few days down the line.
You will need the medical report that the doctor prepares in order to start your compensation claim if you have been injured in Suffolk Coastal.
Determine whether you can make a claim
Whilst we at Accident Advice Helpline would love to deal with each and every compensation claim that comes our way, this is impossible. You will only be able to claim compensation if your case meets the following two guidelines. The third guideline is that you are injured, but if you have a broken bone it is obvious that you have been!
- The accident must have been the fault of somebody else. You will need to provide evidence of this. The police report prepared at the scene of the accident will go a long way towards establishing this.
- The accident must have occurred within the last three years. The sooner you make the claim, the better, however.
Starting the claim process
Once you are fairly confident that you have a decent chance of success with your compensation claim, you can get in touch with us. The first chat with us will be a no-obligation discussion about your case. You do not have to proceed with your compensation claim at this point if you do not wish to do so.
If you decide to go ahead, we will assist you with gathering the evidence that you need to demonstrate that you suffered a financial loss as a result of your injuries. We will also help you gather the evidence that you need to demonstrate that you are entitled to compensation.
Remember, our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis. This will greatly reduce the amount of financial risk on your part.
