    Negligence claim in Royal Tunbridge Wells

    If you are thinking about making a negligence claim in Royal Tunbridge Wells, but you don’t really know where you start, here are the basic steps that you have to follow. The Accident Advice Helpline has put together this short guide to make it easier for people to understand what the process of claiming for a personal injury compensation is, breaking down some myths about it.

    1. Find out if you qualify to make a negligence claim in Royal Tunbridge Wells

    The first thing that you have to do is make sure that your case does indeed qualify you for a personal injury compensation. Basically, you can make a claim as long as you carry no blame for your injury and as long as you are still inside the allowed timeframe of three years from the date of the accident. If you were to blame for the injury or if more than three years have passed, you unfortunately don’t have any rights to a financial compensation for your personal injury.

    Accident Advice Helpline has built a simple tool that tells you right away whether you can qualify for a negligence claim in Royal Tunbridge Wells or not. It is called the 30 Second Calculator, and you can find it on our home page.

    2. Find a legal adviser to work with

    The best accident claim company you can work with is one with as much experience as possible with the kind of injuries you have sustained. Thus, if you intend to make an accident at work claim, for example, you shouldn’t choose a company that specializes in slips, trips, and falls. It makes sense, doesn’t it?

    3. Send over the documentation

    Once you have decided on your legal adviser, put together all the documentation that they ask you for. You will need to make a file with every paper proof you have that can back up your case. Things like doctor’s reports, insurance reports, bills and receipts are especially important. Make sure you don’t throw anything away, as you will need to prove every pound you claim to have reimbursed.

    4. Let them do the work

    From this point on, you can sit back and relax. From here on, it’s your legal advisor that will handle your negligence claim in Royal Tunbridge Wells. You probably won’t need to go to court, not even once. Most claims are solved completely remotely. The only thing that you might be asked to do is attend another medical check-up, and possibly provide more documents, if they are required from the commission evaluating your case.

    If you have more questions

    If you’d like to know more about anything related to your personal injury claim, any of the Accident Advice Helpline’s friendly advisers will be happy to answer your questions, with no charge whatsoever. All you have to do is call us, at 0800 689 0500 or at 0333 500 0993, from your mobile phone.
