The ‘how to claim compensation’ guide
Brought to you by Accident Advice Helpline, this gives a quick, yet informative outline to making a personal injury accident claim in Epping Forest.
Tell us about your accident
In the main, the accident in which you were hurt must not have been your fault.
You may have been the driver of a vehicle involved in a road traffic collision caused by another driver, or you may have been the passenger. We have also helped people knocked from their bicycle or motorbike in an accident, as well as pedestrians knocked over – all accidents that befell them as the result of the actions or inactions of another person.
Tell us about your injuries
Most clients will have already sought medical advice, diagnosis and treatment of their injury or injuries.
If you not, then we could help you with this. Injuries need to have had an impact on you; the law calls this ‘injuries with symptoms’. In other words, any injury had such an impact that it needed treatment. For example, a laceration that needed stitches, whiplash that needed an x-ray and pain killers, or a broken bone that needed a cast.
Tell us when it happened
Anyone looking to make a claim for compensation has three years from the time it can be reasonably assumed that any of the injuries, physical and emotional, were caused by the accident.
For some, this is a day they will never forget. It is the day that life changed; for some the impact of this accident will be felt for many years, if not for the rest of their lives. For others, the impact will be short term, it can be damaging and traumatic just the same.
