Injury Solicitor in Chatteris


6 Steps to Claiming Compensation

Here is AAH’s guide to how to claim compensation for your personal injury – and get the help of our injury solicitor in Chatteris!

Step 1: Grounds to make a claim (or not)?

Generally speaking, if you have been hurt as a result of someone else’s actions or negligence, you have grounds to a compensation claim lawsuit. Your injury solicitor in Chatteris will of course be able to guide you thoroughly on this matter. Occasionally, some insurance companies will want to avoid a lawsuit and so will make an offer to pay you a lump sum, including any medical bills etc; if you do receive an offer, it is entirely up to you as to whether you accept it or not.

Step 2: Gather evidence

You will need to gather as much information as possible, including a Police report if one is filed. If possible, try and photograph the scene of the accident and gather contact details from all witnesses. The more information you have, the more your injury solicitor in Chatteris will have to put together a detailed compensation claim lawsuit.

Step 3: Contact AAH as soon as possible after your accident

Although your main priority will be recovering as much as possible from your injuries, you will need to bear in mind that there are time limitations attached to making a claim for compensation. As soon as you are able, we strongly advise giving us a ring on 0800 689 0500 and get your case to our injury solicitor in Chatteris in a timely manner.

Step 4: Work closely with AAH and your expert injury solicitor in Chatteris

The key to making a successful claim and winning the maximum level of compensation is to be completely honest with your solicitor. There has been a case highlighted recently (not an AAH case) in which someone claimed £750,000 for an injury that she managed to fake. She will now face a prison sentence for contempt of court and fraud.

Step 5: Offered a settlement?

It may be that you are offered an ‘out of court’ settlement figure; this way the company or person in question avoids being taken to court and you still receive the financial justice you were looking for. Your injury solicitor in Chatteris will advise you but the final decision is entirely yours.

Step 6: Take it to the final conclusion

If you feel your compensation case is strong enough then you can press on and take your case to court, with the help and legal know-how of your injury solicitor in Chatteris. However, do not assume that your case will physically make it to court; the likelihood is, your expert legal team will negotiate a full settlement with the insurance company.
