    Personal injury claims in Nelson


    If you are looking into personal injury claims in Nelson, we here at Accident Advice Helpline are more than happy to help you out. On this page, we are going to discuss some of the most important elements that make up a claim for compensation.

    Can you make a claim?

    Just because you have been injured, it does not mean that you have grounds to make a claim for compensation. There are a few elements that your case will need to have if you wish to work with Accident Advice Helpline:

    • The accident must have occurred within the last three years. There is a small exception to this rule if the case involves children or industrial diseases.
    • The accident must have been the fault of somebody else or a company. For example, if you are at work and you have been supplied with inadequate equipment or, perhaps, if you are involved in a car accident due to somebody not looking where they are going.
    • You must have suffered an injury. However, it is worth noting that there is no real limit to the type of injury you must have suffered. We deal with both minor and severe injuries here, as long as you sought medical attention.

    How much compensation can you claim?

    This is a bit of a tricky question to answer. You see, all personal injury claims in Nelson will be different. The amount of compensation you are entitled will partly be dependent on your injuries, but also to consider is the amount of financial loss you have suffered due to those injuries. When you work with Accident Advice Helpline, you may be able to claim for the following:

    • Loss of income.
    • Medical expenses e.g. the cost of travelling to and from the hospital, or even the cost of the treatments that you need to undergo.

    When we start looking at your case in more depth, we will be able to determine how much compensation you may be able to obtain. We will, of course, be unable to give a 100% accurate figure, but we will certainly be able to point you in the right direction.

    How long do personal injury claims in Nelson take?

    Sadly, we would need to take a look at the details of your case in order to determine how long your claim may take from start to finish. Generally speaking though, you can anticipate the vast majority of compensation claims being wrapped up within 12 months of being started. This will, however, be dependent on the complexity of the case.
