What to do after your accident in Dundee
Life can be stressful after an accident, especially if you are suffering financially because of a drop in income, or because your accident has raised unexpected costs. But if your accident was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation. And claiming compensation won’t add to that stress, in fact, it will give you the money that you need to get your finances back in order, as well as extra to compensate you for your ordeal.
Can you claim?
So how do you know if you’re entitled to claim? As a general rule, you can claim personal injury compensation for any injury (or even for an illness) that you have suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence. So, for example, you can claim compensation after being injured in an accident on the road caused by a careless fellow road user, or you can claim for an injury that you suffered because your employer failed to comply with health and safety regulations.
You probably have a fair idea about whether or not you meet the criteria for claiming, but if you are still unsure please give us a call on 0800 689 0500 and one of our advisors will be happy to tell you whether or not you are owed compensation. And this is a free service!
If you are owed compensation you then have three years in which to file your claim with our no win no fee* lawyers in Dundee.
Your lawyer will work hard to make sure that you get all of the compensation that you are entitled to thanks to your no win no fee* lawyers in Dundee, but of course, the amount that you are awarded will be a reflection of how bad your injury was, and how much of an impact it had on your life. But you can get an estimate of how much compensation you could get by using the compensation calculator tool on our website.
Your lawyer will also make sure that you are repaid the money that you have spent on accident related expenses. Your lawyer will give you advice on what you can include on your claim form. Common expenses include:
- Lost earnings
- Money spent on medical treatment, therapy or care
- Childcare fees
- Travel expenses
- Vehicle repair costs and vehicle hire
- Money spent replacing clothing or personal items damaged in the claimant’s accident.
Whatever your expenses were it is important that you retain proof, such as receipts and bank statements!
