Have you been injured in an accident that was the fault of someone else? Did the accident take place sometime in the last three years? Did your injuries need medical attention? If you are saying yes to all of these questions, you could be entitled to compensation. This would not just be for your pain and suffering bit also for any costs and losses your injuries have caused.
The process of claiming compensation
Once your eligibility to make a claim has been confirmed, our advisers at Accident Advice Helpline will let you know exactly what you need to do next and the documentation and reports that will be required. A medical report from your doctor or consultant will form an important part of your claim and if your injuries are long-term, an initial report on your injuries can be supplemented later with an injury update from your doctor.
An experienced in-house personal injury lawyer will be allocated to your claim. It is reassuring for you to know that we work on a basis of no-win, no-fee*, and that you will not have to pay us any money to start your claim. Many claims are processed over the phone, with no need to go to court. However, this depends on factors such as the seriousness of your injuries and the complexity of the case.
