If you’ve been hurt in an accident which was not your fault, then it’s entirely possible that you may be entitled to compensation. But how do you know if you are, and what should you do to make a claim?
This guide is intended to give you all the information you need to find an injury solicitor in Rosedale Abbey who has the specific skills and experience to help you make a claim for compensation.
What can I claim for?
Try not to think about the accident itself. Instead, look at the basic features of it:
- Was the accident your fault?
- When did it happen?
- How bad is the injury?
Under UK law, you are only entitled to make a claim for an injury which was firstly not your fault, and secondly happened within the last three years. In analysing your own case, you should firstly consider whether you think the accident was someone else’s fault, and if so what you can do to demonstrate this clearly in a court of law.
The severity of the injury is the next thing to consider. Compensation claims are made up initially of a payment for a specific injury, which will be based in part on how badly your lifestyle has been affected. So, if you’ve suffered restriction of movement then it’s likely that you’ll receive a higher sum than something which is less serious.
A second sum will be calculated on the basis of how much the injury has cost you financially. This could include loss of earnings sustained thanks to being unable to work or medical costs in pursuing rehabilitation treatment. Keep track of how much you’ve spent and how much you think you’ve lost in terms of earnings.
How much will it cost?
The price will vary depending on who you choose as your lawyer. As with anything in this world, lawyers come in different shapes and sizes, with some charging a bigger fee with the promise of a better service and others choosing to offer a discounted option.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we favour a third option which allows us to defer the costs while still offering the same great service. We call this option no win no fee, which governs everything that we do. Indeed, one of the conditions of working for us is that lawyers offer this as a genuine 100% offering for clients.
