Though it is not something about which many people think, you can often make a claim for personal injury if you’ve been injured due to reasons that had nothing to do with you. As long as you’re certain that you were affected by an injury that was caused due to the fault of someone else, you can make a claim for accidents that led to you having to pay for medical bills and any other costs associated with your injuries.
What you could claim for
When making a personal injury claim, you might not be certain as to what you can make a claim for. If you’re in such a position, here are some of the injuries for which you can make a claim:
- Neck injuries;
- Back injuries;
- Workplace injuries; and
- Hand injuries.
This list is not exhaustive, and there are a number of other injuries which could be put forward as a result of making a personal injury claim. If you’re looking to make a personal injury claim, one of the first questions that is likely to be on your mind is how much you can make a claim for.
This can be calculated using the help of Accident Advice Helpline. On our website, we have something known as the 30-second test. This test will allow for you to learn in just 30 seconds what you might be able to get in terms of a compensation claim.
Calling to obtain a quote for personal injury compensation
However, if you’d rather speak to a person when trying to get a quote for personal injury compensation, then you can also use our helpline number 0800 689 0500, or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993. This will allow for you to speak to one of our professional advisors, who have been trained to help you in the best way possible.
You’ll have to act quickly though, as you only have three years in which to make a claim.
When obtaining a quote for personal injury compensation, you should try and keep in mind that all figures provided are just estimates, and that nothing can be guaranteed or promised. This is because claim amounts can vary, both in the amount of time it takes to process them and the amount of money you might receive as a result.
For those making a compensation claim, you should be prepared to attend a medical assessment. However, most cases can be dealt with over the phone, so it is likely that you will not be required to attend a court hearing.
If possible, it often helps to get the contact details of anyone else who was involved in the accident when making a personal injury claim. This might mean getting the contact details of any witnesses, as well as the other person who was directly involved in the accident.
