Are you looking to find a personal injury lawyer? If so our handy little Q&A could give you all the information you need.
When can I claim?
When you’ve been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, you should be entitled to claim for compensation as long as the injury was bad enough to warrant medical treatment. However you must also make sure that you claim within three years from the day when you are first informed about the extent of the injuries. This is because three years is the maximum amount of time you can allow to pass before you make a decision one way or another about a claim.
Where can I get information?
The internet is a good source of information, but be careful you know where the source comes from. It’s very easy to read something that only relates to another country or you find information which is out of date. At Accident Advice Helpline, though, we’ve packed our website with lots of details about making a claim. This is kept up to date and will give you a good grounding in the facts before you get started.
What is the 30-second test?
If you log onto our website there’s a good chance that you may have seen something called the 30-second test. As the name implies it only takes half a minute to do and all it needs is for you to enter your details and a we’ll give you a quote for the compensation you might receive. This is only a rough guide and should not be taken as fact, but it is something you might want to bear in mind.
How much does it cost?
There is no legal aid for personal injury claims these days so it will cost. Equally, recent changes in the law mean that your lawyer can’t claim their success fees from the other side so you’ll have to pay these.
However, many law firms offer no-win, no-fee* which is a promise not to charge you anything unless you win your case. This is a way of reducing the risk of making a claim and ensuring that after losing a case – if that is what happens – you do not suffer a further financial hit.
