Claiming compensation on behalf of someone else
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we are contacted by family and friends on behalf of their friend or relative who has been seriously hurt in an accident. Sadly, some of these cases resulted in the death of their relative but even so, if this was as a result of an accident that was not their fault, it is still possible to make a claim. If this is the case, you will need the expert help of Accident Advice Helpline and the in-house legal teams, headed by a specialist injury solicitor in Bridge of Orchy in some cases.
Head Injury Compensation Case
One customer, who had their claim made on their behalf by their mother, suffered serious and irreversible brain damage as a result of a car accident. The accident happened at speed on a motorway local to them and had devastating consequences.
His mother decided to make a claim for compensation with the help of Accident Advice Helpline and their expert injury solicitor in Bridge of Orchy because she was concerned about the future. Currently providing his day-to-day care, with some respite provided by social services at a rehabilitation centre, she was worried about how she would cope as she got older.
In fact, she was worried how she could carry on long term to provide the care he needed. She had given up her part time job to care for him but she was struggling financially.
Our injury solicitor in Bridge of Orchy knew exactly how they could help.
With the driver of the other vehicle admitting liability, our specialist injury solicitor in Bridge of Orchy knew there was no need to prove their client was in no way responsible for the accident. They were able to put together a detailed case, detailing the need for compensation for the injuries he received, as well as the high level of impact and future care that he will need in the future.
As a result, the compensation our injury solicitor in Bridge of Orchy won on behalf of this claimant and his mother was substantial. With this money now in trust, his care is secured for the future with his mother now able to ‘buy in’ the help she needs, as well specialist rehabilitation services too.
Your case may not be as severe as this but our injury solicitor in Bridge of Orchy will still be able to help you; call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone and get our renowned no-win, no-fee* service for the financial recompense you deserve and need.
