Frequently asked questions about making compensation claims for personal injuries
It is no laughing matter being hurt, quite the opposite in fact but when the accident or incident was not your fault, then it seems to make it an awfully lot worse.
- Is our service confidential?
Yes, it is. When you contact us, we will ask for basic information which we hold on our secure data systems. We do not share this information and will not sell this information to a third party. As for who needs to know about your compensation claim, that is down to you!
- Is it ethical or moral to make a compensation claim?
Many people feel this about compensation claims but as any injury lawyer in Belper will tell you, the people they have helped make claims prior to you were injured through no fault of their own. On occasion, the long-term effects were devastating as well as the financial impact of seeking specialist medical attention, including long-term medication.
- Will it cost a lot of money to make a compensation claim?
Before a law change many years ago, the emphasis was on the claimant to meet the cost of the case in the first instance; if the claim was successful, then they would be able to claim their costs from the losing side. But, for many people, the risk of possibly footing a large legal bill was prohibitive. The inclusion of the conditional fee agreement – you will know it better as no win, no fee – there is no risk to the claimant. Most companies, like AAH and their injury lawyer in Belper, will not take on cases that do not meet the basic criteria for making a potential claim for compensation.
- What are the basic compensation claim criteria?
There are three basic criteria, against which Accident Advice Helpline and your injury lawyer in Belper base their decision on whether they can help you or not:
- The accident must not have been your fault
- You must have received medical treatment for your injuries
- The accident or incident must have happened within the last 3 years
