Horam in Sussex is not far from Heathfield, so there shouldn’t be too much difficulty finding injury lawyers in Horam if you need them. Starting a compensation claim for a personal injury can seem daunting. After all, it’s not something we do more than once, if at all, nor would we wish to do it, but we may find ourselves stuck in that unfortunate situation because of someone else’s actions or negligence and find that we need to take action.
How do I set about finding the right injury lawyers Horam for me?
Personal injury law is a specialist area of law and you’ll need the right legal expert, but in principle, anyone who has been injured and it was not their fault could be entitled to put in a claim. These non-fault accidents, to use the legal jargon, generally result from these situations:
- Work accidents
- Work-related illnesses or conditions
- Road traffic accidents
- Clinical negligence
- Accidents in public places
There are others, such as accidents at sea, or on holiday, but by far the majority are from the categories listed. Any would-be claimant needs to check a few facts before they can start a claim and we can help you do that.
The Accident Advice Helpline
Since the year 2000, when the company was established, we have been helping claimants win the compensation they need to help them with their recovery and meet the costs incurred because of their injuries and because they have not been able to work, or to carry on their normal lives.
The first thing to do is to check that your claim qualifies and you can do this by taking the 30-second test and answering 3 questions. Should you wish to know what your claim might be worth, the compensation calculator can provide an estimate. Different calculations are used to do this. Special Damages, including costs directly incurred as a result of the injuries, can be calculated fairly accurately, but General Damages, for example, the effect of the injuries on your quality of life, are more subjective and all these are factors the courts must take into account when deciding on the final award.
To understand this in more detail, give our professional friendly advisers a call. You can reach them on 0800 689 0500 or on 0333 500 0993 (mobile). They’ll explain to you how the claims process works and, should you wish to appoint injury lawyers in Horam to start your claim, they can find one for you. Our telephone team is sympathetic, because they know you have suffered a trauma. If you’d prefer us to call you, text “CLAIM365” to 88010.
