You don’t actually need any money to begin your claim: Did you know that you can make an accident claim without any money in the beginning? This is the case if you use the services of a no win no fee* solicitor. Since the payment structure is entirely different you will not need any money in the beginning. You will be pleased to know that all of our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis here at Accident Advice Helpline.
There is a time limit on all personal injury claims: A lot of people are shocked to discover that there is a three year time limit for anyone that wants to make an accident claim. Unfortunately, they often learn the hard way when they discover they have missed out on the compensation they would have been entitled to. We don’t want this to happen to you, which is why we encourage you to make your claim as soon as possible. You will have three years from the actual date of the accident and court proceedings must be issued within this period.
Compensation is split into two parts: Not only will you be compensated for the injury itself but you will also receive money for special damages. Special damages are out of pocket expenses that you have incurred because of your injury. This can be anything from prescription costs and loss of income, to travel expenses and childcare. You will need proof of these expenses, so make sure you keep receipts and such like.
There is a very small chance of you needing to go to court: Last but not least, did you know that fewer than three per cent of personal injury claims actually result in a trial? Therefore there is very little chance that you will have to go through the hassle of going to court.
