No one expects to get injured when they go on holiday, but as we here at Accident Advice Helpline know only too well, accidents do happen, and when they do, if someone is injured through no fault of their own, they often turn to us to find out whether or not they are entitled to claim compensation via a no win no fee in Cromer .
Is your no win no fee in Cromer claim viable?
Regardless of the nature of the injury, or how it came about, we always ask the same 3 questions to establish whether or not you have a viable claim.
- Who was responsible for the incident that led to the injury?
- Do you have medical proof of the injury?
- When did the incident/injury occur?
Accident Advice Helpline
With regard to who was responsible, the blame must lie with a third party in order to allow a claim being raised. Sometimes the culprit may be unknown, as in a hit and run accident. But even here, Accident Advice Helpline can help because untraced driver injury is one of our specialities.
Why medical proof is needed
Medical proof that an injury has been sustained is essential. People have been known to “chance their arms” making false claims. Whiplash injuries are a good example. It seems to be quite “fashionable” to claim for whiplash injury as over 1,200 claims are being made every day.
Many are doubtless genuine, but some may not be, and as this one particular type of injury is costing insurance companies over £2 billion per annum, it’s not surprising they’re insistent on concise medical proof.
The 3 year statute of limitations
For most types of injury there is a 3 year statute of limitations. If you try to claim outside this window, it’s likely your claim will be refused unless you can show just cause as to why you didn’t try to claim earlier.
The right lawyer for the job
Most injuries that happen on holiday are the result of slip, trips, or falls, but they can happen other ways too like: food poisoning, RTAs, and water related incidents. Whatever the circumstances, with 200 lawyers on our books, Accident Advice Helpline has the right lawyer with the right expertise for any job. As Esther Rantzen, one of our staunchest supporters says:
“Take my advice you can trust Accident Advice Helpline to look after you.”
