Finding the best Oldham accident claim solicitors can seem intimidating, but like every difficult task it becomes a whole lot easier if you simply break it down into its components. This article will teach you how to claim compensation after a serious accident in a few easy steps.
Oldham accident claim solicitors
First, you need to decide whether you think you have a good chance of winning a case and for that you need to be aware of what your rights actually are. The world is full of people who made personal injury claims without thinking and ended up wasting time and money.
The law says that you can claim compensation if you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault at some point within the last three years. You will have to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the court that you were not at fault, the injuries were severe enough to require medical attention and that the defendant was to blame for the accident.
You may be able to use that information to reach an assessment of your own, but let’s face it – you’re a little biased so you’re always likely to massage the figures in your own direction – even if you only do so on a subconscious level. This is why it’s important to understand precisely what you’re entitled to and the only way to do that is to speak to an expert in personal injury law.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we created a free 24-hour helpline designed to give you all the information and support you need about making a personal injury claim. There is no obligation on you to continue using our service because you’ve sought our advice so this is a chance to dip your toe in the water with the knowledge that nobody is going to try and commit you to anything.
Assessing your compensation
As part of our advice we will look at how much compensation you can expect to receive – if any. We make this assessment in the same way as the law courts will; by bringing together several different figures. The first number will look at how badly you have been injured by the accident, and then how much money it has cost you. This includes money spent on things such as medical bills and travel costs as well as any lost income through an inability to work.
If we think you have a good chance of winning your case we will can appoint Oldham accident claim solicitors from our nationwide team. They will be the best people for your case and will work on the basis of no win no fee which means if you don’t win you don’t pay.
