If you suffer a serious accident, then we know how bad the impact can be. It can sometimes feel as if your entire life has come to a halt. However, the first thing you need to think about is where to find a personal injury lawyer.
That might not be the first thing on everyone’s mind. In the aftermath of an accident there is the wait until you receive a diagnosis, the immediate care, and then if the injury is long-term, the process of adjusting to a new routine. The question of whether or not you can claim for compensation is often one that gets overlooked.
Time is shorter than you think
Under UK law, there is a time limit of three years within which you have to make a decision about whether or not you want to make a claim. That might seem like plenty of time, but things can get on top of you and before you know it the option of making a claim is removed. So, how should you go about it?
The first piece of advice would be to read – find out as much as you can about how you should go about making a claim for your type of injury. There’s a lot of information to help you on your way on our website. We’ve divided the content into sections covering some of the major types of injuries. Read the section which most closely relates to your situation, as the information here will be the most relevant.
The next thing to do is to seek out advice. At Accident Advice Helpline, we know that you want to know which way to proceed, but don’t want to pay a consultation fee for the privilege. That’s why we set up a free no-obligation 24-hour helpline. This means that you can call us from the comfort of your own home to ask any questions you like.
The purpose of this conversation will be for us – together with you – to decide whether it is a good idea or not to make a claim. We’ll look at your situation and the evidence you’ve gathered, and we’ll then make an assessment about your chances of winning.
