If you have been involved in an accident, you might be frightened and injured, in which case it is a relief to know that you can turn to someone who can help you get your life back on track. In terms of injury, you will obviously seek suitable medical attention, support and treatment. When it comes to fear, you will turn to friends and family members to discuss your fears, but you might also want to speak to an injury solicitor in Shillington.
Injury solicitor in Shillington
An Accident Advice Helpline personal injury solicitor in Shillington will be able to help you rebuild your life following an accident, as well as assisting you in winning financial compensation for the injury, or injuries, that you have received.
An injury solicitor in Shillington is there to help you win the financial compensation that you deserve, and will support and advise you through every step of the claims process. As we are a law firm who have over 15 years’ experience in handling and managing personal injury compensation claims, we have developed a process whereby in the vast majority of cases you will not even have to attend court to complete your claim.
Your injury solicitor in Shillington will be able to process your claim via post and perhaps a few telephone conversations. Your solicitor will need you to answer various questions about your accident. These will include providing information about when the accident occurred in terms of time (if possible and relevant) and date (this is particularly important, as there are deadlines imposed for how long you have to make a claim following an accident). They will also need to know the location of the accident and who else was involved in the accident itself, along with anyone else who witnessed the accident and would be prepared to make a statement as to what they saw.
Your solicitor will most importantly need to know who you believe was responsible for the accident, and why you think that. In the case of a road traffic accident, it could be that another driver was speeding and therefore driving recklessly. If you were injured at work and think your employer is liable, then it could be because they failed to provide you with proper equipment or training to prevent such an accident. You will be able to discuss this in more detail with your injury solicitor in Shillington.
Your solicitor will also need to know how you have been injured. Not only will they ask you to describe the injuries and how they were caused in the accident, but they will need you to sign a form advising that you agree for them to have access to your medical records. These will provide important documentary evidence of your injuries which your injury solicitor in Shillington will be able to provide to the other side in the case.
