Have you been hurt in Stalybridge?
If you’ve been hurt whilst in or around Stalybridge, you may be looking for an injury solicitor in Stalybridge so that you can make a claim for compensation. Although an injury solicitor in Stalybridge may be able to help, they will only be able to do so if you weren’t responsible for your injuries.
When can I make a claim?
If you’ve suffered an injury which wasn’t your fault, it’s likely that an injury solicitor in Stalybridge will be able to help you make a claim. As you can make a claim for all sorts of injuries, one of the most important things to show at the outset is that someone or something else was responsible for the harm you’ve suffered.
What if I don’t know who caused my injury?
If you know that you weren’t responsible for the harm then it may be worth contacting an injury solicitor in Stalybridge, as they may be able to help you find out who is liable for your injuries. If, for example, you tripped on a broken paving stone, you may know that someone else is responsible, but you may not know who is responsible for maintaining the pavement. An injury solicitor in Stalybridge could help you to find out whether the council or a private company are responsible, and you could then make your claim.
How long have I got to make a claim?
At Accident Advice Helpline, we help claimants who have suffered an injury within the last three years, providing it wasn’t their fault. If your injury occurred some time ago but you have yet to make a claim, an injury solicitor in Stalybridge may still be able to help. However, often it’s best to make a claim as soon as possible, so if your injury occurred recently then you may want to get in touch as soon as you can.
What about the costs? Will I need to save up?
Although making a claim with a personal injury law firm which charges upfront fees can be expensive, you don’t have to pay upfront fees if you don’t want to. At Accident Advice Helpline we work on a no win no fee basis, so you don’t need to worry about paying anything upfront and making a claim needn’t put any additional financial pressure on you.
If you’d like to find out more about making a claim, why not contact us today? Our dedicated team will be happy to provide free no-obligation advice, so you can find out all about the claims process before you decide whether or not to go ahead with a claim.
