Help with personal injury compensation claims in Oxford
Personal injury compensation claims in Oxford may be made from the comfort of your own home, if you call us at Accident Advice Helpline. You may have to undergo a second medical examination, but after discussing your potential claim with one of our legal advisers, you may be able to begin the claims’ process over the phone.
Why do I have to prove to make a claim?
The most important thing that you have to prove if you decide to make one of the personal injury compensation claims in Oxford is that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault. You must also prove that the accident was caused by the negligence or recklessness of someone else. One of our legal experts can help you do this.
Naturally after an accident you should have received medical treatment as soon as you could. You will need to provide your medical records if you make a claim for your injuries.
Your medical records will show the extent and severity of your injuries and they will be used to assess how much compensation you could be awarded if your claim is successful.
If you were involved in a road traffic accident, the police accident report should show that the accident was not caused by you. This report will be useful supporting evidence for your claim.
How long do I have to claim?
When you are injured in any type of accident within the British Isles, you normally have three years to file a claim from the date of the accident. However there are some accidents which have shorter limitation periods. You may need to file a personal injury compensation claim within months of having the accident.
You really need to find out from us at Accident Advice Helpline exactly how long you have to file your potential claim. When the limitation period is up, you could only file your claim if you were able to prove that there had been exceptional circumstances and you could not have made the claim within the set time period.
