At Accident Advice Helpline, we are sometimes asked what the most common claim is that we receive. While we do see a very wide variety of accident types and situations, some of the more common ones are caused by car accidents.
A ‘no win, no fee’ accident in Fife
Let’s say that you were a passenger in a vehicle, like a taxi or bus for example. The vehcle is involved in an accident of some kind, in which you break your foot. As a result of your injuries, you have not been able to work again ever since.
Now let’s imagine that you were self-employed. Because of that, you receive no sick pay. Which means that for all this time, you have had no option but to live off your hard earned savings.
So, what do you have to do next?
Lots of people don’t consider compensation claims until further on down the line, taking the time instead to process what has just happened to them and trying to focus on getting better after their no win no fee accident in Fife. The trouble is, you shouldn’t wait too long.
In the UK, there is a 3 year time limit on compensation claims, although this limitation has different start dates depending on the type of injury, or how old the victim is. Three years may seem like a long time, but you would be surprised at just how quickly those three years can come and go.
Assessing your compensation claim
One of the first things you need to do, following a ‘no win, no fee’ accident in Fife, is to make sure that you have a qualifying claim.
If you can say yes to…
- Was the accident the fault of someone else?
- Did you receive medical attention for your injuries?
- Are you within the three year limit for your injury (did the accident occur less than three years ago)?
Then you probably have a valid claim.
