To claim or not to claim – that is the question! If you’ve been hurt in an accident within the last three years and it was not your fault then you might well be wondering if you can seek compensation. Our guide will help you make that decision and find injury solicitors in Woodhurst to help with your case.
Why is it important?
Compensation is an incredibly important provision – it means that if someone causes an accident through their own error, and that accident has a significant effect on the person’s life then they should pay money to help get them back on their feet. For many people living with an injury, that financial support could be the only way they can afford the medical treatment that can restore their quality of life.
A big decision
With that in mind, you can see that it’s a big decision, but it’s not something you should enter into lightly. Because this form of litigation does not qualify for legal aid you will have to finance the claim so before you start you’ll have to weigh up the risks versus the reward.
When you can claim
The basic rules are relatively simple: was the accident your fault? Did you require medical attention and did it happen in the last three years. That final point is often overlooked and there are plenty of examples of people who have had a very good case but allowed too much time to elapse before they launched their claim. All of which is a bit of a shame.
If you make a claim which does not stand a good chance of success then the implications will be tough. You’ll have wasted your own time and money on a claim which was never going to work – and there are plenty of lawyers out there who will let you waste that money on condition that they get paid in any event.
Deciding on payment structure
Because of that, it may feel like a gamble and the one golden rule for any gambler is: never risk more than you can afford to lose, but the sad fact of that is that it means many people will be completely shut off from the legal system.
At Accident Advice Helpline we avoid that by using something we call no-win, no-fee*. This is a simple promise that ensures that if you lose your case you will not have to pay.
