Does it matter where I live?
Claiming compensation is not something we consider doing every day, but if you do find yourself in the position wondering if you have a claim, you may not be too sure about how to go about the whole thing.
Does it matter where I live in the UK?
No, claiming compensation is something that Accident Advice Helpline make accessible to everyone from across the UK. We have specialist injury lawyers in Woodley who have expertise in various personal injuries. For example, if you have suffered a head injury, you will need someone who knows the ‘ins and outs’ of this type of injury, as opposed to someone who is more used to knee injury claims.
Likewise, we also have specialists such as injury lawyers in Woodley who know the area of Woodley well, as well as the surrounding vicinity. If your compensation claim is focussed on the terrain or the area itself, it again pays to have someone on your side who not only has the legal knowledge, but also has an acute awareness of the area.
How can I get the best advice?
They say you get nothing in life for free, but here at Accident Advice Helpline we believe that you should get quality advice – and you should not pay for it. Making an enquiry with Accident Advice Helpline, asking whether there are specialist injury lawyers in Woodley for your case for example, should not be something you pay for, or carry on paying for with marketing phone calls, unsolicited texts and unwanted spam emails!
We have operated a no obligation, no risk policy here for some time now, so if you have a query about claiming compensation simply call us on 0800 689 0500.
How much can I claim?
Without knowing every detail of your accident and the injuries you suffered, we cannot answer this in detail here. We also prefer not to give sweeping figures in which you think your ‘whiplash will be worth £2,000,’ as these can be incredibly misleading.
How much you could claim will depend on:
- The extent and type of personal injury or injuries;
- The accident in which you were involved; and
- Any additional costs that you have had to meet.
How soon after the accident can I claim?
With most accidents and incidents, there is a three-year ‘window of opportunity’ in which you can claim compensation for the injuries that you’ve received. Your immediate priority will be to rehabilitate yourself, adjusting to life since you had the accident.
Once you feel able to, you can contact us for information and free advice on how to proceed with your potential compensation claim.
