The personal injury sector doesn’t get a very good press at the best of times, but much of that is unfair. Although there are some unscrupulous operators out there you can say much the same thing of any industry. So, if you’re looking for an injury claim lawyer in Heddon-on-the-Wall the main thing you should bear in mind is simply to tread carefully.
At Accident Advice Helpline we’ll ensure you have all the tools you need to find a personal injury claim lawyer in Heddon-on-the-wall who can meet your needs.
This starts in raising your own knowledge base about the sector and for this our website is an ideal starting block. Here you can find general information about making a claim as well as more specific details about the varying areas of personal injury law.
When you can claim
The environment of personal injury law is complex, but even so there are basic rules that should be followed.
First you need to have had your accident within three years. This is the time limit imposed by the government on how long you can wait until you decide to make a claim.
Secondly you need to be clear about the issue of blame. If the accident was down to your own carelessness then you will not be entitled to make a claim. If, on the other hand it was someone else’s fault then a claim may well be appropriate.
Thirdly think about the severity of the accident. If you’ve not been injured then it is unlikely that we can help you. However, if the injury is severe enough to require ongoing treatment then we may be able to win you compensation firstly for the injury itself and any ongoing expenses you incur as a result.
What can you claim for?
You should also think about precisely what it is you can make an injury claim for. In short, almost any kind of accident in any situation which was not your fault can qualify. It could be an accident at work, road accident, injury in the street, criminal damage or an illness contracted as a result of medical malpractice.
Finding an claim injury lawyer in Heddon-on-the-wall
With that basic level of information under your arm you can set about trying to find out precisely whether you can or cannot make a claim.
Here again you might be a little wary because the personal injury sector does have its fair share of people who will be more than happy to let you make a claim even if you have precious little chance of winning any compensation.
We however, can give you honest advice and will only tell you to proceed if we think you can win. We’ll also find an injury claim lawyer in Heddon-on-the-wall who can help you with no win no fee.
This reduces your risk and means that if you are not successful you at least won’t be stuck with any legal bills.
