There are many myths and misconceptions about claiming compensation, whether you use local injury lawyers in Cumbria or a national law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline. Approximately 70% of victims never claim the compensation they are entitled to because they do not fully understand the facts about making a claim.
First things first
It does not matter whether you use local injury lawyers in Cumbria or a national firm, the criteria for claiming compensation is the same:
- The accident must be someone else’s fault, even if it isn’t obvious who is to blame.
- You must have sustained an injury in the accident.
- Whether it is at the scene or afterwards, you must seek medical attention for your injuries.
- In the majority of cases the accident must have happened within the last 3 years, although there are a few very specific exceptions to this rule.
If you fulfil these criteria then you could be legally entitled to claim for compensation, not just for the pain and suffering you are going through, but also to recoup any additional costs incurred since the accident.
