If you’ve been in an accident in the last three years and someone else was to blame, you may be wondering about your entitlement to compensation.
You may even have looked into it a little, to try to get a better idea of both your eligibility to make a claim and how much money you’re likely to receive should it be successful. So, what’s the best way of getting this sort of information? Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we think our 30-second test is a pretty good bet.
Using the 30-second test to assess your injury claim in Winchcombe
It’s easy to understand why so many people are keen to gather information before making a claim; the process can be lengthy and you want to be sure that you have a good chance before getting the ball rolling. Our 30-second test can help – a few quick questions and you’ll not only know whether or not your claim is legitimate, but also how much you’re likely to receive should it be successful. However, claim amounts generated by the test are estimates only and cannot be guaranteed, as each case is assessed on individual merit.
So, how do you know whether or not your claim is likely to be legitimate? First, your accident must have occurred as the result of someone else’s error; it must also have occurred within the last three years (there is occasional flexibility with regard to this); and you must have received some sort of medical attention as a result of your injury.
How your injury claim in Winchcombe is calculated
How much an injury claim in Winchcombe is worth is determined by a number of factors. The most significant is the type and severity of the injury sustained; the more severe the injury, the larger the award is likely to be. Other factors are also taken into account; for example, if you’ve incurred out of pocket expenses as a result of the accident, you may be able to claim these back. Costs that can be repaid as part of a compensation claim include travel costs, loss of earnings, medical expenses, childcare costs and more.
