Personal claims in Sheffield – A legal right.
This is something that many people in Sheffield are not aware of, making a claim for accident compensation is your right under United Kingdom law. This law has been put in place to protect accident victims and enable them to proceed with their lives with the minimum of stress. Of course making personal claims in Sheffield does not automatically guarantee you success. This is why you need the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer such as those that work for Accident Advice Helpline. With a wealth of experience in injury claims of all sorts, Accident Advice Helpline can assist you wherever you are in the country.
Do you have a valid claim?
First ask yourself a few questions.
- Was your accident the fault of someone else?
- Was it the accident that caused your injury?
- Did you attend the hospital or your local doctors after the accident and receive treatment?
If you can answer yes to the above then you satisfy the legal requirements to make a claim. It also pays to think about the following:
- Do you have any proof of the accident such as witness reports or police reports?
- Are you unable to work because of the accident?
- Is it having a financial impact on your life?
Again a yes answer will put you in a strong position to make a claim. Payments against personal claims in Sheffield are made not only against the actual injury you received but also on the effect it has had or is continuing to have on your life. If you feel that you can make a claim then you should speak to Accident Advice Helpline immediately.
Is it too late to start your compensation claim?
The answer to that depends on when your accident happened. If it was more than three years ago then sadly the answer will be yes. But not if the accident occurred at work where different timescales apply. You are also given longer to start your claim if you were under eighteen at the time of the accident, when your claim can begin on your eighteenth birthday. Or, if for some reason, you were incapable of handling your own affairs at the time due to some form of mental illness. Again, the claim can start once you are back to health.
