Accidents can be extremely traumatic, especially when the resulting injuries threaten your health and employment prospects. Whilst you may be aware of your entitlement to claim compensation for an accident that was not your fault, the prospect of making a claim may seem like a daunting task.
When filing a claim against the negligent party, you must follow a strict set of procedures. There are, for example, stringent time limits to adhere to, and if you fail to make your claim in a timely manner, you could lose your right to receive compensation. For this reason, it is always advisable for you to seek immediate claims advice from the knowledgeable legal team here at Accident Advice Helpline.
