You’re not alone. In fact, we field over 25,000 enquiries a month from people seeking our help, and can help you make sense of making a compensation claim quickly and easily. Here, we look at common queries and provide helpful information about working with a personal injury lawyer in Leeds after a car accident.
Do I qualify to work with a personal injury lawyer in Leeds?
There are laws in place to ensure that innocent accident victims don’t just have to live with injury. The law states that if you’ve been hurt because of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to make a claim. If another motorist was texting behind the wheel, driving under the influence or erratically or just not paying attention – if you’ve been injured as a result of their behaviour, you could be entitled to make a claim.
Is it expensive to make a compensation claim?
A car accident, especially, can be an expensive incident to recover from, with injuries often requiring frequent trips to the physiotherapist, hospital, chiropractor and other medical professionals. At Accident Advice Helpline we ensure it’s affordable to make a claim thanks to our no win no fee policy. This conditional fee policy means you don’t have to pay anything up front to begin a claim, and no solicitors’ fees if we don’t win your case. This helps keep the costs of starting a claim down, allowing you to focus your finances on healing.
How much can I receive for my injuries?
The amount each claimant will receive varies from case to case, but many of our clients have received payouts worth thousands of pounds. To find out how much you could receive for your injuries, use our 30-second online claims calculator to see a rough estimate quickly. You can also phone our helpline to discuss your case in confidence with an experienced claims adviser.
Is there a time limit in place?
You have up to three years after the accident to pursue a compensation claim.
