Some compensation questions and concerns, answered
Accidents are a fact of life. They strike without warning. They strike when times are good and when times are bad. For some, the impact is short term but for others, and their families, the impacts have far and wide-reaching consequences.
No matter where on the scale of severity you think your accident is, you could be entitled to compensation – if this is the case, then our lawyer in Leek Wootton could be the person you need on your side.
When can I start my claim?
You can start your claim as soon as you want after your accident BUT it must be within three years of it happening. Personal injury law clearly states that in most compensation cases, the claimant must lodge their claim within 3 years of the date of the incident or accident.
This varies slightly for those claimants who need the help of our lawyer in Leek Wootton for case of industrial diseases. These claimants have three years from the date they were told they had an industrial disease – or could reasonably assume they had one – to make a claim.
It is imperative, no matter for what kind or type of injury you are making a compensation claim for, that your first call is to the medical profession.
You must receive treatment for your injuries, your lawyer in Leek Wootton will not be able to proceed with your case if you do not do so.
How do I know my claim will be successful?
There are no guarantees but with an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer in Leek Wootton representing you, the possibility of making a successful claim is much, much higher.
Add to this the robust assessment that Accident Advice Helpline have in place for assessing the eligibility of claims, and you may find that your compensation claim will be successful within weeks.
Our compensation calculator, known as the 30-second test, was developed in response to the huge number of call we received on our helpline asking us how much compensation could be claimed. This tool assesses, quickly and easily, if all the criteria needed to make a claim are present in your case. All you need to do, is truthfully answer the questions and your compensation ball could be rolling.
How long will it take?
Without knowing your case in detail, this is impossible to calculate. Straightforward, uncontested cases can take only a few weeks for your lawyer in Leek Wootton to resolve whereas other cases take much longer, due to their complexity.
