When you get in touch with our Magor accident claims helpline, one of their main goals will be to help you to determine whether you have grounds to claim compensation or not. In order to do this, we will need to check your case against three distinct criteria, which we are going to go into detail on right here.
When did the accident occur?
Generally speaking, we will only be able to provide representation in your personal injury compensation claim if you start it within three years of the incident occurring. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule.
For example; if you were a minor at the time of the incident, you may be able to go outside of the three-year time limit. In addition to this, if you are suffering from a work-related disease, e.g. mesothelioma then we may also be able to help you out too.
We recommend that everybody who is looking to start a compensation claim does so as soon as possible. If you leave it too late, your chances of success will dwindle away quite rapidly.
Were you injured?
We are a personal injury law firm. This means that our Magor accident claims helpline will only be able to provide assistance to those who have suffered an injury.
Now, it is probably worth noting that the type of injury is not going to matter all that much. Providing it has had a significant impact on your day-to-day life, then you will most likely going to be able to make a claim. However, you do have to be aware that it is not enough to simply say that you were injured. You are going to need to provide us with a medical report. If you do not have a medical report, you will not be able to make a compensation claim through Accident Advice Helpline.
Who is to blame?
This is where cases are made and broken. You can’t claim compensation if you are to blame for the incident which led to your injuries. You can only claim compensation if you can prove, on the balance of probabilities, that the injuries were caused by the negligence of another person.
Now, negligence is an absolutely huge area of law, so if you do wish to find out more, please pick up that telephone and give us a call today. All you really need to know right now is that negligence can occur when a person has a duty of care towards you e.g. your employer or another road user. If they breach that duty of care by acting dangerously and you end up injured, there is a good chance you will be able to claim compensation.
