If you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer in Accrington, one of the first things you might want to know is how much your claim might be worth. Well, here at Accident Advice Helpline we can give you a very decent clue, and it only takes 30 seconds.
Gone in 30 seconds
Our 30-second test is one of the most popular features on our website. It is a compensation calculator which asks the following very simple questions. Questions that are asked of every accident victim.
Were you injured in the last three years? This is important to know, because under UK law the maximum time you can wait until you decide whether or not to make a claim is three years. Any longer than that and you will not be able to claim, regardless of how good your case might be.
Was the accident your fault? This should be fairly self-explanatory. If the accident was your fault then you won’t be able to claim anything, but if someone else was to blame then you are entitled to make a claim against them.
Did you receive medical attention? If not, then we may not be able to help you. Claiming compensation is for injuries which are relatively significant. Where were you injured? For instance, were you hurt on the head, shoulder or back? This will be important in assessing how much you might be entitled to claim.
After that, all you have to do is enter your name and phone number, and we will give you a quote for your claim. This is only a rough guide, but we’re experts in this business so it is a relatively realistic figure and one that you can use going forward.
Why do people like this?
As mentioned before, this is not a guaranteed sum – there is no way of knowing for certain what the courts might decide to award in the final analysis. But even so, people like to see an indication of what they might receive at the end of the process.
It helps them to plan, and is useful if the other side makes a settlement offer. When that happens, this little tool will help you to decide whether or not that figure is realistic.
