It could be because of any accident type at all that you need to make personal injury claims in Wiltshire, none of them are barred from making claims for as long as they fit the correct legal criteria, which is:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- Your must have sustained injuries in the accident
- Your injuries should have been severe enough to need medical attention
- The accident must have happen within the last three years
If your accident and injuries fit these rules, you can make personal injury claims in Wiltshire for compensation, financing your claim with the no win no fee* agreement.
No win no fee* personal injury claims in Wiltshire
No win no fee* means that you do not have to pay any money before your claim can be started, and if your claim should prove unsuccessful you will not owe us a penny. This agreement was extended to personal injury claims in Wiltshire, and anywhere else in the UK, in April 2000, after many years of only the rich being in a position to make a compensation claim.
This made a bit of a mockery of the law which the above rules apply to, as although the legal right to claim compensation was there, very few people could actually afford to make a claim in case the claim was lost.
That is no longer a concern, and innocent victims of accidents do not need to think about their financial situation before proceeding.
Making sure everything is claimed for with Accident Advice Helpline
When you have been injured in an accident that was not your own fault, there are usually unexpected expenses you have to pay. Most of us live from payday to payday, and unless you have a very healthy bank balance, these can put a huge strain on your finances, at a time when you will already be stressed because of the accident.
Some of them might not seem like much, but when you have to pay prescription charges and maybe taxi fares on a regular basis, they soon start to mount up. There could also be much larger things to pay for as well.
A young parent at home, for instance, perhaps with a 2 year old and a new baby, would have great difficulty looking after them if they had a broken arm or leg. They could well need help with childcare until they have recovered, and this has to be paid for.
Whatever extra costs you have had to pay can all be recovered if your claim is successful, and you should keep receipts for them all.
At Accident Advice Helpline, every area of your accident injuries and the way they have affected you life will be looked at closely, to make sure that you are awarded the maximum compensation for your particular situation.
If you are considering making a claim and would like more information, visit our website or call our freephone helpline on 0800 180 4123.
