Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can provide representation for personal injury claims in Newbridge. However, it is worth noting that we can’t possibly deal with each and every compensation claim that comes out way. On this page, we will discuss a few of the ‘checks’ that we have in place to ensure that your case is suitable for our compensation claim process.
Personal injury claims in Newbridge can only be made within three years of the incident occurring
You are only able to claim compensation, in most cases, within three years of the date of the injury. There are a few small exceptions to this rule, mainly related to industrial diseases and children. However, in all cases, in order to stand the greatest chance of success, you start your claim for compensation sooner as opposed to later.
You must have been injured
Accident Advice Helpline is a personal injury law firm. This means that we will only be able to provide representation in cases which involve an injury. No matter what the extent of your injury, if you needed medical attention for it, you should be able to claim. Injuries can affect the rest of your life, and how they impact on you will be accounted for when making your personal injury claim.
Before you get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline, do make sure that you obtain a medical report from your doctor or hospital. Without a medical report, we will be unable to proceed with your personal injury claims in Newbridge for compensation.
The incident must have been the fault of somebody else
This is perhaps the most important thing to bear in mind when it comes to personal injury claims in Newbridge. You can only claim compensation if the injuries that you have suffered were down to the way in which another person acted. You can’t claim compensation if you were the party at fault. We will, of course, require as much evidence as possible from you in order to ‘prove’ your claim. These situations are some of the most common that we deal with here at Accident Advice Helpline:
- Injuries caused due to road traffic accidents
- Injuries caused due to inappropriate safety equipment in the working environment
- Injuries caused due to RSI or vibration related injuries
- Injuries caused due to slips, trips and falls, wherever they happen
- Industrial illnesses and diseases.
