Need to find help with an injury claim in Fortrose but feel unsure about where to start? Never fear – our guide has everything you need to know. Just follow these simple steps.
Step one: about the injury
Although personal injury law is a highly complex area there are simple facts which can govern whether or not you could be due some compensation. The accident must have happened within the last three years and it must not have been your fault.
Before you even start on your journey you should be satisfied that you can address all those issues.
Step two: Get advice
Nothing can beat advice from a real expert. Find someone to talk over your options with. Most solicitors will offer this service, but you may find yourself being charged a consultancy fee. Understandably that might not be very appealing especially if the result of that consultancy is simply to tell you there is no chance of a successful outcome.
Check for solicitors who offer a free consultancy with no obligation to use any service moving forward. This gives you access to information but doesn’t lock you into any kind of contract.
It just so happens – at the risk of being biased – that Accident Advice Helpline offers such a service.
Log onto our website and you’ll see lots of basic information as well as a very popular 30-second test. This shows you whether or not you should be thinking about making a personal injury claim.
We also operate a helpline through which our team of trained legal experts can give you guidance about your case.
Gather up all the information you can – the more you have at this stage the better our chance of being able to help.
If you have any evidence backing up your claim then this is a good time to show it. A good example might be a traffic accident and witness reports.
In many personal injury cases, the other side will keenly contest the issue of blame – so the more independent corroboration you have the better things will go for you.
Step 3: Assessing the case and compensation
This conversation should normally be enough for us to make a determination about whether you should make a claim.
We will also be able to give you a rough idea of how much compensation you might be entitled to should your claim be successful. This is always nothing more than a guideline and should never be taken as gospel.
Step 4: Find help with an injury claim in Fortrose
We can also put you in touch with a personal injury lawyer who can help you with your case. Our selection will be based on proximity to you and basic issues such as the relevance of experience.
Best of all this will all come with a no win no fee promise so there really is nothing to lose.
