At the very outset, victims often ask how long do personal injury claims in Wyre Forest take, but that is not an easy question to answer. You might as well ask how long is a piece of string because the answer will be the same – you do not know until you get to the end.
Many victims, whose only experience of claims has been what they see in the media, are pleasantly surprised to receive their compensation after just a few months, and we have had several claims when the compensation has been received in as little as 6 weeks. Personal injury claims in Wyre Forest can be very quick to resolve.
The media often report on cases that have taken years, but these are very rare and there are nearly always underlying reasons for the delays. They are often high profile cases for some reason, so they are worth printing.
The thousand of claims that are settled every month to everyday folk, do not warrant the reporters time, so it is very unusual to read about one of those in the newspaper, or see it on the news.
Making personal injury claims in Wyre Forest as fast as possible
At Accident Advice Helpline we make all our claims as quickly and efficiently as possible, but there are a few things you can do to help speed up your claim, such as:
- Be ready with the details of the accident, such as when and where it happened, what type of accident it was, details of your injuries and details of who the claim has to be made against.
- Gather as much evidence as you can to prove your claim. The details of any witnesses, receipts for any extra expenses you have had and any other information you feel might strengthen your claim. Medical reports will be needed, and if any report on the accident was prepared by any official body such as the police, a copy of that report could prove vital to your claim.
- Respond quickly to any queries or questions about your claim. Delays in answering questions or providing information just means delays in settling your claim.
- Make the claim as soon after the accident as you can. Claims that are made sooner rather than later appear to have more chance of success and to be finalised quicker.
