If you live near Ilkley Moor or in the West Yorkshire area and have suffered injuries in an accident that wasn’t your fault but was due to somebody else’s negligence, you can make a claim for compensation, provided the accident occurred within the last 3 years.
Call a few solicitors before deciding to go ahead as with each free consultation you will have a few more questions to ask and few more answers to put your mind at ease. You can also call Accident Advice Helpline for honest expert advice.
The patron of Accident Advice Helpline, Esther Rantzen, loves their “no fuss” approach and praises them for providing customers with a satisfying experience throughout the claims process. Esther is, of course, the UK’s best known champion for consumer rights, and she believes more victims of non-fault accidents should know about their right to claim compensation.
As a compensation provider and law firm, Accident Advice Helpline offers potential claimants the choice to either call free for an initial consultation or to go online to their website, where a simple 30-second test will assess, whether a claimant qualifies and how much their claim might be worth. It’s merely an estimate, as there’s no guarantee how much compensation will be awarded at the end of a successful claim. All their legal partners work on a no win, no fee* basis and are experts in their field.
The injury claim in Ilkley process
Your accident injury claim in Ilkley, or other Accident Advice Helpline specialist solicitor, will write to the defendant, setting out your injuries and how the accident occurred from your point of view. The defendant will have up to 3 months to respond, during which time the defendant’s solicitor can investigate the veracity of your claim.
If the defendant accepts liability, your accident injury claim in Ilkley will make an offer to settle out of court, which is legally known as a Part 36 offer. Your solicitor will tell you how much your claim is potentially worth and ask you, what you will be prepared to settle for, since an agreement between both parties means not having to go to court.
Once the defendant has either accepted the sum, that your solicitor working on the injury claim in Ilkley has proposed or, as sometimes happens, the defendant has made a counter offer with their very own Part 36 offer, your solicitor can either go ahead with the settlement of the claim or advise you if you should accept the other parties Part 36 offer or not.
Making a successful challenge
If the defendant denies fault, then your solicitor will advise you on whether to challenge the defendant in court, where a judge may award you compensation provided that your challenge is successful.
You don’t have to wrestle with legal jargon or lots of form filling. Your solicitor from Accident Advice Helpline will do all that for you and you probably won’t even have to appear in court, as most cases are settled over the telephone.
