Motor vehicle injuries are common
Being involved in an accident that was not your fault is a traumatic experience and suffering injuries through no fault of your own can leave you needing a sense of justice for what has happened. Motor vehicle injuries can be particularly serious, affecting mobility on a day-to-day basis, so what happens if you decide to take legal action against a third party?
The first thing to do is to get some expert legal advice from either a personal injury solicitor such as at Accident Advice Helpline. By doing this, you will understand exactly what the claims process involves and have an idea of the amount of compensation that other cases like yours have attracted in the past.
Motor vehicle injuries compensation claims
These claims range from simple whiplash injuries to severe disability caused by a car accident. There are 3 general criteria that need to be met in order to be eligible to claim:
- The accident must not have been your fault
- In most cases it must have happened within the last 3 years, although there are some exceptions to this
- You should have received medical treatment for your injuries soon after the accident
Accident Advice Helpline deals with any type of road traffic accident and over the years has made successful compensation claims for a wide variety of car injuries.
Our in-house lawyers are well-placed to deal with your personal injury claim, as they all have experience of cases involving a variety of car injuries.
One of the biggest worries people have when making a compensation claim is the potential cost of taking legal action. By making a claim through us, you will not have to pay any money upfront and if your case is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay our legal fees. This fee system is called the Conditional Fee Agreement, better known as no-win, no-fee*.
