When you are looking into personal injury claims in Newtown, it is in your best interest to make your claim for compensation as soon as possible. On this page, we at Accident Advice Helpline will highlight why you need to start your claim for compensation sooner as opposed to later.
It is the law
This is probably the main reason as to why you would want to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible in order to discuss your personal injury claims in Newtown. You must file a claim for compensation within three years of the injury occurring otherwise you will lose the right to claim. There are a few exceptions to this rule. However, these exceptions will not apply in the vast majority of cases, for example one of the exceptions is if you are suffering from an industrial disease, another is if it is a child who was injured.
It is easier to gather evidence
The longer you leave your claim for compensation, the harder it will be to gather the evidence that you need in order to succeed with your claim for compensation. Research shows that claims that are made sooner rather then later after the accident have a greater chance of success, and receive higher awards.
Other types of evidence may also be difficult to get hold of. For example, you may struggle to get coherent witness statements (remember, memories will fade over time, even in the most vivid of cases). You may find it difficult to actually get in touch with witnesses, you may lose key pieces of evidence (safety reports etc). The less evidence you have, the less chance you have of being successful with your claim for compensation. Call us to discuss your personal injury claims in Newtown.

At Accident Advice Helpline, we do not want you to delay when it comes to making your compensation claim.
