At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that the thought of making a compensation claim may seem daunting. If you have any questions regarding the claims process, we can provide you with the answers you require.
Common questions and concerns regarding working with a lawyer in Parsons Green
Here is a list of the most common questions our trained claims advisors respond to when manning our helpline:
How long after my accident do I have to make a claim for compensation?
You will normally be granted three years from the date of the accident. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule. For example, if you were a child at the time of your accident or if you have been diagnosed with an industrial disease, you may have longer to bring a claim against the guilty party.
Will I have to visit my GP?
If you have sustained injuries in an accident, you should visit your GP. Following your examination, your GP will record your injuries in your medical records, providing your accident lawyer in Parsons Green with a vital source of evidence.
How much compensation am I likely to receive?
It is very difficult for us to estimate the amount of compensation you will receive until we have investigated the circumstances of your accident. Contrary to popular belief, there is no standard amount of compensation for any particular type of accident or injury. If you wish to determine the amount of compensation you may receive, please use our 30-second test.
Will I have to go to court to secure a compensation settlement?
If the guilty party accepts liability for your accident, their insurance company will settle your claim outside of court in order to avoid paying a large legal bill. If the guilty party denies liability for your accident, you may have to attend a court hearing. However, your accident lawyer in Parsons Green will talk you through the whole process to ensure that you feel comfortable with the prospect of pursuing compensation in this way.
