Need to find an injury claim lawyer in Heckmondwike but feel uncertain about where to turn? Just try this quick Q&A to see how you can find out whether you’re owed any compensation.
When can I claim?
The personal injury sector is a complex place and it is difficult to throw a blanket over the market in any definitive way, but there are some basic principals you can follow.
- Was the accident your fault?: Obviously it will be impossible to claim for accidents that were down to your own carelessness.
- Was someone else at fault and can you illustrate it?: If the accident occurred as a result of another party’s negligence then it’s only fair that you should be entitled to some form of compensation. The question is, can you prove it? The more information you have on this the better the position you’ll be in.
- How severe was the injury?: Compensation will be calculated on the basis of the severity of injury. Naturally it stands to reason that the more serious the injury the more likely you will be able to make a claim and the greater that claim will be for.
- When did this injury occur?: This is the last but perhaps most significant issue – when did the injury happen? Under regulations you can only claim for those injuries which occurred within the last three years.
What types of injuries can I claim for?
You can claim for almost any type of injury. It might be a slip or fall, an accident at work, or a road accident. You could have suffered food poisoning thanks to some dodgy cooking at a restaurant or contracted a medical condition thanks to medical malpractice.
In any respect you should find as much information about these different types of injuries as they are treated differently under personal injury law.
How much will it cost?
This can be difficult to answer. Some solicitors will charge fees while others will work on a no win no fee basis. At Accident Advice Helpline we make a point of making sure that all the solicitors we work with offer a 100% no win no fee approach. This provides reassuring peace of mind for customers that whatever happens they will only be charged in the happy event that they win.
