FAQ about claiming compensation

If you have been injured in a public place, on the roads or at work, you may have a number of questions surrounding your eligibility to make a claim. Here, we shine light on some of the most common queries we receive at Accident Advice Helpline.

Who can make a claim?

If you have been in an accident, it’s important to determine who was at fault. You must have been the innocent party in order to claim compensation, and you should be able to prove that the negligence of another party caused your accident to occur. If you are not sure if you can make a claim, there is a quick, easy-to-use 30-second claims calculator available on our website that will help determine if you can make a claim, and if so, for how much.

What if I was injured overseas?

If you were hurt while holidaying or travelling for business, you are still within your rights under UK law to make a claim. While these cases can be more complicated and in some cases take a little longer to process, it is possible to hold the hotel, motorist, travel company or other negligent party responsible if they have needlessly caused you injury or illness.

Can I make a claim for an accident at work?

Statistics show that there were 78,000 injuries reported under RIDDOR in 2012-2013, and in many of these cases, employees were injured through no fault of their own. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have over fourteen years of experience handling workplace injury claims successfully. If you need to connect with a law firm in Cumbernauld to determine if you could be eligible to make a claim, we can put you in touch with one of our skilled workplace injury lawyers.

What happens if I’ve been involved in a hit-and-run collision?

Many people fail to contact a law firm in Cumbernauld after being in a hit-and-run accident, but your right to compensation isn’t nullified just because the driver fled the scene.

Accident Advice Helpline, alongside the police and the Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB), can make sure you are awarded what you are owed if you have been injured in such an accident.

How much can I claim in compensation?

You can claim for more than just the physical injury itself. You can make a claim for the emotional stress it may have caused you, any income you have lost as a result of the accident, costs of treatment and more. If you have suffered financially as a result of the accident, our law firm in Cumbernauld will fight to recover the maximum amount possible.

Find out how much this can be by either filling in a claims form online for an assessment, or calling our helpline directly to discuss your case with a claims adviser.
