Have you been injured on a bus or train within the last three years? If you were travelling as a passenger on public transport, you may be able to claim against the transport company or their member of staff in order to get compensation. Accident Advice Helpline makes thousands of personal injury claims every year, and can help you get justice for your public transport accident in Wellingborough.
Accident Advice Helpline’s no win, no fee claims
No win, no fee is a method of funding personal injury claims that was first introduced in the 1990s. In practice, it means that should your claim be unsuccessful, you will not have to pay your solicitor’s legal fees.
The system was brought in to safeguard the finances of innocent accident victims, and it also allows a claim to be started without any advance payment of fees. We use no win, no fee for all our personal injury claims, and can start a claim straight away if you are approaching the three-year time limit.
Conditions that need to be met for a claim
The three-year time limit means that a claim must be started within three years of either the date of your public transport accident in Wellingborough, or the date on which your injuries were attributed to that accident.
Other requirements include:
- Blame for the accident – this must be placed with a third party who has acted in a negligent manner, resulting in your injuries
- Medical assistance – treatment for the injuries sustained must be received either at the time of the incident or soon after
These three requirements form the basis of your eligibility to start a claim. If you are unsure whether you comply with these conditions, just call our friendly helpline advisors who can clarify the situation.
