What is the 30-second test?
If you have been injured in a public transport accident in Mid Sussex, you may be thinking about compensation. But no doubt you have many questions such as the eligibility of your claim, along with how much compensation could you be entitled to.
To help clients with potential compensation claims for personal injuries, Accident Advice Helpline have created an easy tool that anyone can use. The compensation calculator known as the 30-second test is a measuring and assessing device all rolled into one.
Why take the 30-second test?
It is a quick and simple way of giving you an indication of the success of your claim, as well as how much you could win in a compensation settlement. Of course, the tool is used right at the start of your journey and thus when you legal team start work on the detail of your case, you may find that the figure of how much you could claim changes.
Where can I find the 30-second test?
You can use it in two ways:
- Call us and discuss your case with a member of our phone line team. Our staff are experienced at dealing with compensation case queries and will run through similar questions as you will find in the online version of the tool.
- The online 30-second test can be found on the home page of our website. It is towards the top right hand corner of the page and can be identified by the few questions that you need to answer.
How to use the 30-second test
You will see several questions that you need to answer in order to get an indication of the eligibility of your claim.
There are drop down menus with each question; select the one that best fits your answer. Remember this tool was created to give you an initial indication. It may be that you have several injuries, but choose the one that has affected you most. If you decide to go ahead with your claim, your legal team will need more information from you and this could lead to a change in the settlement figure being pursued.
