First things first…
Let’s make sure that you are getting the right help for your injury or injuries. As any personal injury solicitor in Askam-in-Furness will tell you, getting the right medical help is crucial to your claim for compensation. If you have had an accident that has left you with an injury, you need to visit your GP and any consultant appointments you are given. This way, getting a diagnosis of the problem will inform how much compensation we could claim on your behalf.
Secondly, let’s look at who is at fault…
The entitlement to making a claim for financial compensation has been written in the British law book for some time now, and it clearly stipulates that the accident or incident in which you were injured must not have been your fault. It might be, for example, that you slipped and you believe that there should have been adequate warning signs to prevent this happening. Or maybe you were injured in a car accident that was not your fault.
Thirdly, let’s keep an eye on how much compensation you could be entitled to…
Not many people realise that not only can they claim with an injury solicitor in Askam-in-Furness for their injury, but there may be a possibility of claiming back some expenses that you feel you have had to meet in order to be able to function on a daily basis.
For example, many people with extensive spinal injury find they need to make adaptations to their home and car, possibly even buying in personal help around the home.
Even if you feel your injury has not impacted on your life to this extent, there may be prescription charges, or you may have incurred transport fees to get to and from various appointments. Your injury solicitor will discuss these additional expenses with you in detail.
And finally, let’s keep an eye on the time…
Like we say, the British law book in relation to claiming compensation has some specific criteria that need to be met. One criterion is in relation to deadlines; you MUST make your claim within three years of the date of your accident.
Our advice is that you begin your claim as soon as you can after your accident; due to the severity of your injuries, you may find this is a few months after your accident, simply because you have needed this time to recuperate.
Accident Advice Helpline is waiting to take your call on 0800 689 0500 (landline) or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile phone.
