When people are looking for injury lawyers in Kent and they call our helpline, they usually want to know what type of accidents we deal with, and do they qualify to make a compensation claim. We always tell them that we handle claims for all types of accidents, the most common ones being road traffic accidents, accidents at work and slips, trips and falls.
What about eligibility?
There are three main rules you have to comply with to be able to make a claim:
- Your claim must be started within three years of the date of your accident. There are some exceptions to this rule, which we can discuss with you.
- A medical professional must have treated your injuries. This can happen at the scene of the accident, by your own GP, or at an Accident and Emergency department. But a report from whoever treated you will be needed as part of your claim.
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else, you cannot be the cause of it.
If you are unsure about any of these points, our friendly advisors will gladly discuss your situation with you and help you decide if you have a valid claim.
Injuries claimed for
There is no end to the list of injuries that can be claimed for, they do not have to be serious to entitle you to compensation. Even minor injuries can cause a lot of problems in your life until you have recovered, and more serious ones you might never recover from fully. Our injury lawyers in Kent are used to claiming for all types of accidents and injuries and we have the expertise you need on your side of a claim.
