Here are a few tips to help you if you want to make a personal injury claim in Redcar and Cleveland.
Firstly make sure you fit the criteria for a personal injury claim in Redcar and Cleveland
The rules for claiming compensation are the same for all claims, not matter what type of accident you were in:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention
- The accident must have happened within the last three years
As long as your situation fits these rules, you could make a personal injury claim in Redcar and Cleveland.
Don’t delay – start your personal injury claim today
One of the best pieces of advice for anyone considering making a claim is to make it sooner rather than later. The sooner claims are made after an accident, the more successful they appear to be, and they seem to be awarded larger amounts. There is no real reason for this, but it can only be assumed it is because the evidence is more readily accepted as it is fresh in everyone’s mind.
But also remember, the sooner you contact Accident Advice Helpline, the sooner we can start work on your personal injury claim in Redcar and Cleveland, and the sooner you will receive your compensation.
Accidents and injuries always bring extra expenses with them, and these are all reclaimable if you have a successful claim. You will need to prove them though, so you should keep receipts for whatever you have to spend, as even small amounts tot up to a lot over a few weeks.
The same applies to any earnings you lose if you are employed. You can reclaim them, but your employer will be asked to complete a form that confirms the loss, or your accountant if you are self employed.
Be totally honest
From when you first contact Accident Advice Helpline, you should be totally honest with us. There is no point in exaggerating your injuries or twisting the truth, because if you are found out, not only will your personal injury claim be rejected, but you could be charged with fraud and prosecuted.
