Guide to making a claim for compensation
If you have been involved in an accident and it was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in St Mary’s. There are many types of accidents which can occur, including workplace, road accidents, medical negligence and personal injuries. The process of making a claim is relatively simple but there are some points you should know before you start your claim.
Was it someone else’s fault?
You should only start an injury claim in St Mary’s if you are certain that the accident was a result of someone else’s negligence. It is distrustful, not to mention illegal to make up a claim, so always be sure of your facts before starting the process. If you are in doubt, you can always speak to an advisor at Accident Advice Helpline, who will do their best to determine responsibility.
What do I need?
In order to start a claim for compensation, you will need to be able to provide evidence to back up your claim. Evidence will be in the form of medical records, photographs and witnesses. You will have to at least have one of these in order to make your injury claim in St Mary’s. If you can’t provide evidence, there will be nothing to substantiate your claim.
The process for making a claim is simple. You would initially speak to an advisor at Accident Advice Helpline who will talk you through the process and put you in touch with an in-house solicitor. The solicitor will ask you to provide your evidence and they will take over the process of your compensation claim in St Mary’s. The solicitor dealing with your case will have experience in the specific type of claim, so you can be sure that you will have the best possible chance of a positive outcome. The solicitor will keep you updated throughout the process, so you are not left wondering if they are dealing with it.
How long does it take to make an injury claim in St Mary’s?
It is impossible to determine the length of the claim process as it varies greatly from case to case. It will depend on a number of factors including your ability to provide evidence, the extent of your injuries and the other person’s willingness to accept liability. The value is also difficult to determine, although the solicitor will be able to give you a rough estimate on this. The value of your claim will take various aspects into consideration, including the type of injury and any out of pocket expenses.
