Questions about claiming after an accident in Kilmarnock?
If someone else was to blame for your accident then you are probably wondering if you are entitled to compensation.
Accident Advice Helpline are on hand twenty-four hours a day to answer all of your compensation questions, but to help you get started, here are the answers to some of the most common questions:
How can I find out if I am owed compensation?
Accident Advice Helpline can confirm that you meet the criteria for claiming, all you need to do is call them on 0800 689 0500 and answer a few basic questions. Generally speaking though, you can claim compensation for your injury providing that the accident that caused you to be injured was someone else’s fault.
Can I get legal aid to help me claim?
No unfortunately not. The UK Government stopped legal aid funding for personal injury claims in 1998. But you can still claim your compensation without risking your money by using a lawyer who will work for you under a no win no fee* contract, like the lawyers that work for Accident Advice Helpline.
How long does claiming take?
Every claim is different, but most compensation claims are dealt with fairly quickly. Your lawyer will be able to give you a more accurate timeframe when you come to claim.
How long do I have to claim?
You have three years from the date of your accident in which to file your Kilmarnock no win no fee* compensation claim with an injury lawyer. But make sure that you don’t claim too soon, else you may not get all of the compensation that you would have been entitled to!
Will I have to attend a court hearing?
Probably not, as most personal injury claims are settled out of court.
Will I have to go to a medical?
It is possible that you will be asked to attend a medical, so that a specialist can determine how much compensation you should be awarded. Your medical will be arranged at a convenient time for you, and will be held somewhere local, to minimise the inconvenience.
Can I claim on behalf of my children?
Yes, you can make a Kilmarnock no win no fee* compensation claim on behalf of your children.
How much will I get?
The amount of compensation that you are awarded will depend on how serious your injury was, but you can get an estimate of how much your Kilmarnock no win no fee* compensation claim could be worth by using the compensation calculator tool on Accident Advice Helpline’s website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
