    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Personal injury lawyer in Baylham


    How long could it take to get the actual compensation for my claim? The answer is probably not as simple or as straight forward as some may hope – because the truth is that you have as much chance of knowing how long it will take as deciding how long is a piece of string.

    Getting a claim

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we deal with all sorts of personal injury claims. Some are simple and take only a few months to process, but others are much more complicated and they can take years. Why is that? Well, it’s because of the incredible difference between the types of accidents we often deal with.

    At the simpler end of the scale, for example we might find someone who has been hit by a car and is now suffering whiplash. Their car was stationary and it is quite clear that the other driver was at fault.

    As long as there is a note of the medical attention received and a demonstration of the negative impact this accident has had on the victim’s life then making a claim could be quite easy. You only have to show that the accident happened within three years and then how much it has cost in purely financial terms and you’re ready to go. You could be receiving your cheque within a few months.

    A more complicated case

    Then we turn our eyes to something a little more complex. Let’s imagine we’re dealing with a client who has suffered a severe brain injury. Now things get complicated.

    First of all we do not want just any personal injury lawyer, but someone who specialises in cases relating to brain injuries.

    Secondly there is the issue of proving culpability. The other side may decide to contest the claim in courts and they might even have considerable financial resources to help them in this fight. If so, winning the case will prove to be a long and arduous battle.

    As well as proving blame you’ll also need to assess how much compensation is due. A severe brain injury is likely to have a very serious impact on anyone’s life, so much so that you may not be able to continue working. The compensation awarded will not only be the amount you have already lost in terms of paying for treatment and loss of earnings, but also any you might have earned in the future so it is quite a complicated calculation.
