Am I entitled to claim compensation?
They say knowledge is power. If that’s true then the same must be true of ignorance. Indeed, it’s a lack of knowledge that is one of the main reasons why many people don’t seek the compensation to which they are entitled. For this reason, we’ve put together this guide to show you what you should be thinking about and how you can find a personal injury lawyer in Addlestone.
Here’s a story which we often see among our clients. Someone has been hurt in an accident which has caused a severe and long-lasting injury. However, they fail to claim the compensation which they should be owed because for some reason it never occurs to them that they could make a claim. Often, it’s only when they see one of our adverts and realise how easy and low-risk it can be that they even think about making a claim.
Claiming compensation: the guidelines
The basic rules are very simple. If you’ve been hurt in an accident in the last three years, that was not your fault, and you required medical treatment there is a very good chance that we can help you to claim compensation. Ask yourself if you think your situation qualifies. It very well might do, in which case here’s what you should do:
- Get in touch: You can call us on our helpline number, which you can find at the bottom of this article. Alternatively, you can complete the compensation calculator or 30-second test on our website. This will give you a quote within moments, and one of our advisors can then ring you to talk through your case.
- Speak to us: When you call us, gather together all the information about your case that you possibly can. This should include details of your injury, any treatment you’ve sought out or are receiving, and any evidence you have. This will improve the level of advice and support that we’ll be able to provide.
- Get a lawyer: If we think you have a good case, the next thing for us to do is find a personal injury lawyer in Addlestone who can take your claim forwards for you.
