Richmondshire No Win No Fee* Claims for Compensation – Who Can Claim?
YOU can claim! It does not depend on age, gender, how much money you do or do not have… the eligibility to seek compensation for personal injuries with Accident Advice Helpline is dependent on these factors:
- The accident or incident in which you were hurt was not your fault!
There are many ways that people can be hurt, from car accidents to being knocked from their motorbike and some people are hurt when taking part in organised activities. We also help people with Richmondshire no win no fee* claims for compensation due to work accidents. Connected with people’s work from the past, are claims for compensation due to an industrial disease… the list could go on and on but there are is one fact that links them all –
None of the Victims Were Responsible for the Accident
- The accident or incident in which you were hurt was within the last 3 years
Again, all Richmondshire no win no fee* claims for compensation made through AAH are done so within 3 years of the date of the accident. This is not a date that is moveable and our advice is that you claim as soon as you feel up to it.
But, this 3 year window of compensation opportunity is to allow for the fact that some people find it difficult to make a claim immediately after the accident – they may be in hospital for a long time or, like many people, they feel unable or unwilling to talk about the traumatic incident in which they were hurt.
The only time that this 3 year deadline is applied differently is to cases involving children (under the age of 18 years) and those people suffering from industrial diseases (next of kin may be able to claim on their behalf).Open Claim Calculator
- You sought medical attention for your injuries
This is so important to your claim and without a medical diagnosis, Richmondshire no win no fee* claims for compensation will falter at the first hurdle.
Some victims received emergency medical care, their injuries are so severe or, in some cases, life-threatening. For others, they may find that once the shock and adrenalin had passed, they needed to seek medical help. Injuries can lay hidden and dormant and so it is imperative that regardless of how ‘light’ you think the accident was in terms of the impact it had on you, you simply must get yourself checked out.
