Accident injury claim in Hambledon – The Fast Track System
Injury claims are filed daily by the dozen, yet why is it that the numbers of people who are actually able to win their claim are very few? Thousands of accidents take place on a daily basis, with thousands being injured too. Some even receive fatal injuries that end up taking their lives.
For those who are the sole bread winners of their families, an injury means that they will be unable to provide food and funds for their family till the time they are able to walk properly. Yet, very few people actually receive their claim. At Accident Advice Helpline, our main purpose is to provide our clients with the peace of mind that they require while knowing that their claim will be resolved.
In the United Kingdom, a new fast track system was implemented in 2010 which provides rapid settlement in just a few weeks to people who have been involved in car accidents. In most cases, an injury claim in Hambledon will go up to a few months, or even years in some cases.
Do you qualify?
However, if you qualify for this system, getting your injury claim in Hambledon resolved can become very convenient. Here are a few things that you need to check:
- You must have received an injury after being involved in a road accident caused by another party. Clearly put, the insurance party of the other driver should have accepted liability. In case of contributory negligence, which means that if you were even partly to blame, you will not be able to apply for a fast track injury claim in Hambledon.
- The accident must have occurred on or after 30th April 2010. The law generally gives you three year period in which to apply for your injury claim in Hambledon, so if your claim was before 30th April 2010, you can only apply for the standard procedure.
The value of the total claim that you have filed for must not go over 10,000 GBP. These also include costs of rehabilitation and care that the injured party will be receiving.
In the overall value of 10,000 GBP, the costs incurred due to personal injury should be more than 1,000 GBP. In order to put things in perspective, slight injuries to the back go up to 4,000 GBP while shoulder injuries generally stand at 2,000 GBP.
Both of the parties should have an active driver’s insurance policy and the Motor Insurer’s Bureau must give a clearing before the claim can be processed further.
Neither of the parties should have suffered a fatal injury as a cause of the accident.
If either of the parties had declared bankruptcy before the fast track claim was filed, it can’t be processed further. It is important that both of the parties have clear assets.
At Accident Advance Helpline, we are familiar with all of the protocol for the fast track settlement system, and can easily help our clients in getting their claims resolved soon enough!
