How do compensation claims work?
If you have been in an accident, you may be considering making a compensation claim.
For many people, the idea of making a claim can seem confusing, leading to people forgo the right to seek compensation. While there are laws and time limits in place when it comes to making a claim, it does not have to be complicated. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have been working in the personal injury industry for over fourteen years, and have handled a wide range of requests and cases in that time.
We know that many people can find the process overwhelming, which is why we have such a large support team available to help. Whether you’ve been hurt at work, in public or on the roads, it’s easy to make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline:
Find out if you qualify
You can make a claim if you have been injured within the past three years in an accident that was not your fault. If the negligence of another party has caused your accident, you could be able to make a claim. If you are not sure if you qualify, or have been in a more complicated accident such as one involving a hit and run driver, call our injury claim specialists in Cornwall to have a no-obligation assessment.
See how much you can claim
Every accident claim results in a different payout, taking into consideration things like the financial impact of the accident as well as the long-term effects.
