Making an injury claim in Shipton-under-Wychwood
Despite the high number of companies that offer injury claims services and a greater awareness amongst the public that they can make a claim for compensation if they’ve been hurt, there’s still a lot of uncertainty out there as to what a personal injury compensation claim involves and how one would go about making one. In an effort to dispel some of this confusion, the following seeks to answer a few common questions about how and when to make a claim.
Could I launch an injury claim in Shipton-under-Wychwood?
You may be able to make a claim for compensation if you’ve been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault that resulted in you getting injured in the last three years. If the accident occurred when you were a minor or you’re claiming for an industrial injury, this time limit may not apply.
How much might I win?
As each case is different, it’s hard to give an accurate estimate of what you might be entitled to. In the first instance, try using Accident Advice Helpline’s (AAH) 30 second compensation calculator test. You’ll find it on the right-hand side of the firm’s website. Tap in a few details about your injury claim in Shipton-under-Wychwood to get a rough idea of what you might be entitled to.
What would be my involvement in the case?
Most claimants have very little to do with their personal injury cases after they’ve retained the service of a no win-no fee law firm. Initially, you’ll need to talk to your representative over the phone, but once the process has begun, you may not even have to attend court. There’s an outside chance you may have to attend a medical examination, but this will depend on your personal circumstances.
How do I get the ball rolling?
If you think you may have a case, your best bet is to call a no win-no fee injury law firm to find out if it can take on your case. The majority of these, like AAH, will be happy to offer you free advice when you call. They’ll assess your case and work out if they may be able to help you. If they feel they can work for you, you could be in for nice little pay-out.
