If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident and it wasn’t your fault, it’s only right you’re looking for information about how you can obtain compensation. The law exists to help people like you, and here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can discuss what happened to you, and advise you on making a claim for road traffic accident compensation in Woking.
How do you know if you’re entitled to claim compensation?
If your injuries were caused by an accident that happened in the last three years (with a few exceptions, such as if the victim was a child), the accident was someone else’s fault, and you have medical evidence of your injuries, then it’s very likely you’re entitled to compensation.
Often, for anything other than more serious and complex injuries, evidence that you attended your GP’s surgery and received treatment and advice about your injuries can suffice to make a claim. Sometimes, though, you may need to attend one further assessment with a medical professional to support your case and help us assess how much compensation you should try to claim.
You’ll also need to tell us as much as you can about the accident – and provide contact details for anyone else involved, whenever you can. But don’t worry! Our friendly professional advisors can discuss your situation with you, and let you know what is required for you to make your individual claim.
What can you claim compensation for?
Compensation is often awarded under two heads: the law compensates you for what is called ‘pain, injury and loss of amenity’ arising from your injuries. It also compensates you for any financial losses associated with your injury and recovery – such as bus fares to and from the hospital, and in more serious cases, home care and even renovations to your home necessary to cope with a long-term injury.
Whether your injuries are severe or comparatively minor, Accident Advice Helpline has the expertise you need for the best advice and the best representation. From minor bruising and whiplash through to broken bones and serious head injuries, our expert lawyers will ensure that you’re able to obtain the compensation you deserve.
