Essential information on making a compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline and their very best lawyer in Ilchester…
Here at Accident Advice Helpline (AAH), we work on a daily basis with thousands of customers from across the UK but, despite these high figures, it is still outstanding to think that as many as 7 out of 10 do NOT make a claim for the compensation they are entitled to.
This may be for many reasons; claiming compensation, with or without the help of a lawyer in Ilchester is not compulsory and so many people may not want or need to claim compensation, preferring not to.
But, not everyone is sure how or why they can claim compensation and so here, AAH has put together a quick guide to set you on the right path when it comes to not only claiming compensation, but working alongside one of our lawyer in Ilchester too!
Fact 1: There is a deadline to claiming compensation
According to personal injury law, any who feels they have a compensation claim have to make their within 3 years of the date of the accident, event or catastrophe. Not many people are aware of this but, attempt to make a claim outside of this deadline and you will be sorely disappointed…
Fact 2: You must have seen a medical professional too
British law states that compensation can be paid to people to have been hurt but, there is a slight caveat to this; in order to make a claim, and for your lawyer in Ilchester to get the right amount of compensation for you, your injuries must have been treated by a medical professional.
For some people, their injuries are slight with minimal long term impact such as a broken wrist that once the cast is off, the wrist is fine. But, for other people, their injuries have a far wider impact and these injuries need a thorough assessment in order to make sure that any compensation payment is ‘future proofed’.
Fact 3: The accident must not have been your fault
The crux of any claim for compensation according to personal injury law is the fact that YOU were not to blame for the accident. It could have been caused by someone else’s negligence, such as careless driving or a sign warning of a wet floor not being put out or maybe you are making a claim for an industrial disease or illness – whatever it is you propose claiming for, or what the injuries are, someone else must have been responsible for the accident, catastrophe or event.
