Thinking about claiming compensation following a public transport accident in Nottingham, or elsewhere in the UK? Accident Advice Helpline provides levels of customer care that are second to none.
We aim to make your experience stress-free, and with that in mind we have provided some tips and advice below for making a personal injury claim.
Use the no win, no fee method of claiming
This safeguards your finances by minimising the risks of taking legal action. You will not have to pay your solicitor upfront before you start a claim, and should the case be lost you won’t be liable for your lawyer’s legal fees.
There is no need to risk your finances if you are thinking of making a claim for personal injury – this is a tried-and-trusted system that has been in operation since the 1990s.
Make sure your solicitor has experience
Personal injury can be a very complex area of law, and if your solicitor has prior experience in this field, your chances of success will be significantly improved. The entire legal team at Accident Advice Helpline has expertise in personal injury law, and will negotiate professionally with the third party involved on your behalf.
Get an estimate of the compensation amount
Many people say that this was the deciding factor in choosing whether to make a claim. Without an estimated compensation amount for your public transport accident in Nottingham, it can be difficult to know whether taking legal action will be worthwhile.
We offer an estimate in two ways:
- From our friendly advisors on the helpline
- By using the compensation calculator on our website – known as the 30 second test
The 30 second test is very easy to complete – you just need to input the answers to a few simple questions, and the result is returned immediately.
Keep paperwork after a public transport accident in Nottingham
Should you decide to start a claim for compensation, your solicitor will ask for all the accident documentation that you hold. If this is easily accessible, the claim can be underway quickly.
The paperwork required might include any witness statements and police reports on the incident, as well as an account of what happened in your own words. A medical assessment of your injuries should also have been received when the accident happened, and this can have a significant influence on the outcome of negotiations.
Get some more tips on claiming compensation by phoning our professional helpline advisors on 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile phone. They will be able to answer all your questions and provide you with an estimated award.
