Some people shy away from making a Lancashire accident at work claim, because they know bits about the claims process, usually from friends and the media, and it just sounds too complicated and costly to proceed, or they think their injuries are not severe enough to claim compensation for.
Much of this perceived information is incorrect, as laws change all the time and every situation is different.
Some of the most common misconceptions are repeated again and again, but what victims should really do is contact Accident Advice Helpline if they want to make a Lancashire accident at work claim, to get the right up to date and relevant information and to find out if they qualify to make a claim.
The qualifications to make a Lancashire accident at work claim
There are certain rules personal injury claims of all types have to comply with and if these rules apply to your situation, you should be eligible to make a Lancashire accident at work claim.
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- The injuries must have been severe enough to need medical attention
- The accident must have happened within the last three years
There are a few exceptions to the time limit rule, but this can all be explained to you by the friendly and helpful advisor’s at Accident Advice Helpline.
The complications of a personal injury claim
For an inexperienced victim, trying to make a personal injury claim on their own would be complicated, time consuming and stressful. But for those that use Accident Advice Helpline, it is easy, fast and efficient making the whole thing a lot more stress free.
The costs of making a personal injury claim
This is another worry we can take away from the victim, as we take the financial risk of winning your claim. We work on a no win no fee basis and this means that we do not ask for any money for the claim to be started, and we will not ask you for any money if your claim is lost.
The severity of your injuries to make a personal injury claim
All the law requires for you to make a claim, is that your injuries were severe enough to need medical attention. This is not always in the immediate aftermath of an accident, as sometimes it can take a while for you to realise you have a problem, whiplash being a typical example of this. Whiplash does not usually start for a few hours after an accident, often the next day. It starts quite mild, and can be a few days before you feel it is bad enough to see a doctor.
Medical reports will be needed from whoever treated your injuries, and occasionally victims are asked to attend a medical with a specialist in the field of their particular injury.
