Our 30-Second Test
If you have been involved in an accident, and injured as a result, you might be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
To find out if you qualify to make a claim you could speak to one of Accident Advice Helpline’s injury claim lawyers in Hetton today; alternatively, you could take our 30-second test which you will find on our website.
Our 30-second test is specifically designed to tell you whether or not you could make a claim based on your circumstances, and whether you should contact one of our injury claim lawyers in Hetton to start making that claim.
What we need to know
In order to ascertain whether or not you can make a claim, and whether you are likely to need an injury claim lawyer in Hetton our 30-second test asks the following questions:
- Were you injured in the last three years?
- Was the accident your fault?
- Did you receive medical attention?
- Where were you injured?
Injured in the last three years
The reason we need to know whether or not your injury occurred within the last three years is because there are strict deadlines in place as to how long you have to make a personal injury compensation claim for any accident you have been involved in. This deadline is, unsurprisingly, three years from the date of injury.
However, there are some situations in which this deadline can be extended, for example, in the cases where the person who was injured was a minor at the time of the accident, or in situations where the injury in question was an industrial disease such as mesothelioma. If you are worried that you might have missed the three year deadline in which to make a claim, contact Accident Advice Helpline today and get the expert advice of an injury lawyer in Hetton.
Not at Fault
Your injury lawyer in Hetton will need to know whether the accident you are planning to make a claim for was your fault or not. This is because if the accident was the fault of someone else, it is going to be against this person that the compensation claim will be made. A claim can still be made if you are partly responsible for the accident, you will just receive less compensation money. Speak to one of our lawyers today to find out more.
It is helpful if you have received medical attention following your accident. This is because not only does it provide evidence that you were indeed injured, but it also helps substantiate the claim that you are entitled to compensation because your injuries were severe enough to warrant receiving treatment. Your injury lawyer in Hetton will need access to your medical records to provide these as evidence to the other party’s representatives.
