Accidents happen. And when they do, people are hurt. If this has happened to you, you may decide to seek compensation for your injuries. But, you may be wondering who pays for compensation in Preston?
Getting the right advice
When it comes to legal matters, many people profess to be ‘in the know’ or profess to be an expert. Sadly, this is far from the case and thus, the information and advice they dish out can be not only wrong but out of date and irrelevant.
Finding out who pays for compensation in Preston to you can, in some cases, be obvious but there are other cases when this is not so clear. When this is the case, you need to be confident that the information and advice you receive is correct. Making a claim only to find that it is not eligible for compensation could leave you with a very big legal bill.
That said, getting the right advice is easy. All you need to do is call Accident Advice Helpline.
But to help you, we have summarised the three main points of making a claim for compensation:
- Your injuries will need to be medically assessed
Many clients will have taken this important first step by either attending a local hospital or seeing their own doctor. This is important because it confirms your injuries, their nature and severity in some instances too.
That said, you may need a further independent medical assessment in order for the compensation settlement to be set at the right level.
- The accident must have been someone else’s fault
In effect, it is this person or company etc. that will be responsible for paying compensation, as they caused the accident.
Not all clients are aware of who this person/people/company and so on may be. This is something that Accident Advice Helpline can deal with as part of your case.
- You must claim within the allotted deadline
This is three years and starts counting down from the time it can be assumed the accident was the cause of your injuries. In most cases, this is from the date of the accident but can vary. This is why it is always important to check your case against the current facts of making a claim.
