Being off work for even a relatively short period of time – just a few weeks – can be frustrating. Especially when you’ve picked up a minor hand or leg injury in an accident at work or at pleasure which was of someone else’s doing.
The boredom aside, you’re losing income. You can’t do what you were able to do even with things like household chores before it happened and, quite frankly, it’s all become a bit of a pain in the backside, let alone in your hand. You quite rightly think that someone should be paying for this inconvenience – it’s time to take action.
By calling Accident Advice Helpline on our 0800 number for free, we’ll be able to start the process of claiming for minor injuries against the offending party through one of our inhouse no-win, no-fee lawyers. All we need to establish with you, in a test lasting just half a minute, is that the accident happened within the last 3 years, you were not to blame for what happened and that you needed medical treatment as a result.
You’re totally under no obligation to take matters further if you’re not satisfied with the advice we give on the phone. We can also assure you that, in many minor injury cases, court appearances are not always necessary for your compensation claim to be settled. In fact, you may not even have to see a solicitor in person as the claim can be handled entirely on the phone and by paperwork in the post. All too good to be true? No, these are facts in small claims law and because it’s a no-win, no-fee agreement you won’t be saddled with litigation fees from the outset.
Money you’ve lost
What’s more, our lawyer will try to claw back money you’ve lost as a result of the accident – like taxi fares to medical appointments, prescription charges, care support in the home should you need it and in the instance of damage to your property, repair or replacement costs for these.
Those with minor injury claims often ask – how long will it all take and how much am I likely to get? Well, if the injuring party accepts responsibility a personal injury claim for minor injuries won’t take long to settle, but when cases are disputed extra work has to go into the claimant’s case and this can take time. An example here is when, following a car accident, an Accident Advice helpline solicitor might have to wait for a police report.
Call us today for full information on how to start your minor injuries claim. It’s 0800 689 500 from your landline or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile phone.
