If you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer in Aberlour then it can be difficult to know where to turn. However, don’t be put off. We’re here with this handy frequently asked questions blog which will show you the basics involved in making a claim.
1. When can I claim?
Under UK law you will be eligible to make a claim if you have been hurt in the last three years and the injury was bad enough to require medical attention. Of course, as most people know, the accident must not have been your fault. If you satisfy all these requirements then you may well be able to make a claim.
2. Why three years?
Three years is the maximum amount of time that you can allow to pass after an accident before you decide whether or not to make a claim. Many people who are injured make the mistake of not looking into their situation in detail and so, as a result, let the three years pass before they realise that they could have got compensation after all. We think this is a shame which is why it’s always a good idea to find out what your rights are.
3. How do I find out whether I can claim?
The best way is to contact an expert. Most law firms offer consultation which is the moment where you’ll be told whether or not you have a good case.
4. Doesn’t this cost money?
In some cases it does – such as those in which the law firm will charge for anything that takes up their time. But at the Accident Advice Helpline we offer a free advice service which means you can find out whether or not you can make a claim very simply over the phone without leaving your own home.
5. How much does it cost to find a lawyer?
You will have to pay to cover the cost of your claim, but the big question is how much and when. Under UK law personal injury claims no longer qualify for legal aid which means many people have to make a risk assessment when they start – can they afford the money they will have to pay out if they lose their case?
However, at Accident Advice Helpline we offer a ‘no win, no fee’ service which means we can find a personal injury lawyer in Aberlour who will only cost you anything if he or she successfully helps you to make a claim.
