    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Ower

    When an accident occurs, you may attribute it to your own carelessness or misfortune. However, some accidents are caused by someone else’s inattentiveness. In these cases, you may feel that you deserve to be financially compensated for your pain and suffering. Unfortunately, you will not automatically receive an award of compensation – you will have to bring a claim against the guilty party, and this can be a time-consuming task.

    Once you have established that someone else was to blame for your accident, you should hand your case over to an accident lawyer in Ower. With the help of a personal injury expert from Accident Advice Helpline, you will be able to fight for your legal rights.

    Think you may have been partially to blame? You may still be able to make a claim

    It is important to remember that if you were partially to blame, you will not necessarily be prevented from making a claim. If you were a passenger in a car that was involved in an accident, for example, and you were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, you may not receive quite as much as you would have hoped for in compensation.

    Feeling the pinch? You can include a range of losses and expenses in your compensation claim

    Your accident lawyer in Ower will help you to claim for three main categories of compensation:

    • General damages, which will reflect the pain and suffering you have encountered as a result of your injuries;
    • Special damages, which will include any lost earnings and out-of-pocket expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident; and
    • Future losses, which will reflect any losses that might reasonably be incurred in the future, including lost earnings, pension rights and healthcare costs.

    Losing track of time? You should seek the help of an accident lawyer in Ower as soon as possible

    If you wish to make a claim, you must contact an accident lawyer in Ower as soon as possible so that you can discuss the details of accident whilst the facts are still fresh in your mind. Whatever you do, do not wait longer than three years to make your claim. If you do not issue court proceedings within three years of the date of your accident, you will lose your right to pursue compensation, unless the court exercises its discretion.
