Making an injury claim in Newbury
If you live in the Newbury area, you may have been injured in an accident. If it was not your fault, you could be considering making a personal injury compensation claim. You don’t really have to hire a local lawyer to make an injury claim in Newbury. All you need to do, is call us at Accident Advice Helpline. We can take you through the claims’ process when we have determined that you are entitled to claim for your injuries. Making an injury claim in Newbury is easy with us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Are you entitled to make a claim?
If you are able to prove that you were not to blame for your accident, then you can probably make a claim for personal injury compensation. There are some other points to prove as well, of course, but the main one is that someone else and not you, was responsible for your accident.
It is worth noting that the person responsible may not have been present at the accident scene. For example, if you tripped and fell in the street and fractured a limb, then the local authority could have been responsible because the street or road was not well-maintained.
You will have to produce your doctor’s report and your medical records, to show that you received treatment for your injuries quite soon after the accident. These documents are needed if you make an injury claim in Newbury or elsewhere, as they are used to calculate how much compensation you could get for your injuries.
Injuries arising from accidents within the UK need to be claimed for within three years of the accident. Usually you can’t file a claim after the three year deadline, although there are some exceptions to this rule.
Also, some accidents and injuries have shorter limitation periods. Check with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to file your claim. Don’t just assume that you have three years to file your injury claim in Newbury.
People are always asking exactly how much they could receive in terms of compensation if their claim is successful. We can’t predict that with any accuracy, but we can give you a rough idea of how much you could receive. Why not take the 30-Second Test on our main pages to to get an idea?
Alternatively, you can talk on the phone to one of our advisors and he or she will be able to give you a rough estimate of how much you might be awarded.
