FAQs about making a compensation claim
Have you recently been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault? If so, you might have heard that you could be entitled to claim for compensation. Like most people though, you probably have plenty of questions that you’d like to ask about what’s involved and what you can expect in practical terms. Here, we answer some frequently asked questions about making a claim after being involved in an accident.
Will the process be stressful?
Professional legal help in Salthouse or any other area of the country will do their best to make the process as stress-free as possible. Providing that you give them all the information they need, they’ll take care of the case for you and manage any difficulties that they may run in to along the way. Many people have commented that they were amazed at just how simple the process can be.
How much will I be entitled to?
The amount of money that you could be entitled to will vary greatly, depending on a wide range of factors.

Should I use legal help in Salthouse or a national organisation?
It’s not difficult to find an accident solicitor in Salthouse or any other area of the UK, though it does pay to pick a company with an excellent reputation and some great experience under their belts. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people for over 10 years, and you can speak to an adviser right now by calling 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone. The line is open 24 hours a day.
How long will it take?
Again, every individual case is different, so it’s impossible to give a definitive answer to this question. It’s advisable to speak to an accident solicitor in Salthouse or from a national company, so they can discuss the details of your case and tell you what to expect. You’ll usually have three years to make your claim, though it makes sense to do so as soon as possible. Only in certain cases will this length of time be extended, though you could find that you have longer if your injury was the result of industrial diseases, or you were a minor when it happened.
If you have any further questions, speak to a legal professional. They’ll be more than happy to give you the answers that you need.
