Do you live or work in South Ribble? Have you had an accident and been injured? Can you prove that you didn’t cause the accident and that someone else did? You may, if you have answered “Yes” to these questions, be able to file one of the personal injury compensation claims in South Ribble you have heard about.
How to begin the claims process
Your first step to making a potential claim should be to contact us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you do indeed have a valid claim. Our advisors can tell you if your claim is valid or not after you have discussed the circumstances surrounding your accident and your injuries.
If you have a claim to file, we can start the process over the phone, if you wish. We work for our clients on a no win no fee* basis.
What do I need to make a claim?
You will need to make your medical records available as these are used to assess how much compensation you could receive for them and for loss of amenity if applicable. You are compensated for this if you can no longer do a hobby or sport that you enjoyed doing before your accident. The amount you are awarded for your injuries is only one part of the total compensation you would receive if your claim is accepted.
If the police were at the scene of the accident, you will also need a copy of their accident report. This report should demonstrate that you were not to blame for the accident. It should also lay the blame for the accident on another person or organization.
If you were able to take photographs of the scene of the accident, these could be used as supporting evidence.
How long do I have to file my claim?
Although you usually have three years from the date of an accident that occurred in the UK, to file a claim for injuries, this isn’t always true. Sometimes you need to make a claim within months of the accident. Find out how long you have to file your potential claim by contacting us at Accident Advice Helpline.
