We answer many questions on our helpline about making a personal accident claim in West Devon.
Our professional advisors talk to hundreds of customers each week, and tell us that there are a few common questions that worry people who are thinking of embarking on a personal accident claim in West Devon, or elsewhere around the country.
In the light of this, here are the answers to these questions, provided in the hope that we can allay some of your fears before they take hold, and allow you to start a claim with confidence that justice is within reach.
Who can make a claim for compensation?
You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you meet the following three criteria:
- The accident happened within the last three years
- It was not your fault
- You received medical treatment for the injuries sustained
How long does it take to complete a claim?
A common question, largely because of the urgency of many of our customers’ situations – the time it takes to complete a claim varies greatly, and is dependent on the circumstances of each case. Because of that we are unable to state with certainty how long it will take, but we can offer our assurance that we will process it proactively and efficiently.
Can I claim using no win, no fee?
Yes, we process all our claims using this method of funding. It allows customers to start a claim with no advance payments needed, and you will not need to pay your solicitor’s legal fees should the claim be unsuccessful.
No win, no fee is an important part of your claim for compensation – it protects your personal finances and provides easier access to the justice system.
Are your solicitors fully-qualified?
Not only are they fully-qualified, they also work for us in-house. This offers reassurance that the legal work for your claim will not be outsourced, and that you will know who is negotiating on your behalf.
Your personal injury lawyer will collect all the evidence needed, and then process the claim by telephone if possible. We do this to avoid the need for our customers to go to court, and you will be advised as to whether we can do this for your public transport accident in West Devon.
