It’s amazing how many people are put off claiming because they fear that they’ll have to go through a lot of hassle and stress, and it’s also amazing how much misinformation about claiming compensation is in circulation!
The process of claiming for road traffic accidents in Clydebank
The reality is different to the fears of the person above, you’ll be glad to know. Firstly, the no win no fee* solicitors who work for Accident Advice Helpline will always do whatever they can to settle a case as soon as possible – and without any need for you to attend court.
The initial step in making a claim is to determine whether the claimant is eligible, and you can do this yourself, if you like – just go to our website and take the 30 second test, which is easy to use and, as its name suggests, quick!
If you are eligible, you will need to begin the process by speaking to one of our professional, friendly advisors. They are at the other end of the phone, 24/7, and they will be able to guide you through what’s involved in claiming, answer any questions you might have – and, of course, they’ll take your details.
When you claim for road traffic accidents in Clydebank, the aim is to receive a payout at the end of the process. The payout will consist of two elements: one for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that has occurred as a result of the accident and injury, and another for the reimbursement of expenses.
To enable the claim to proceed, you will need to attend one additional medical assessment so that our solicitors have proof of the severity of the injuries. We will also need records of the medical treatment you have undergone as a result of the accident.
For the expenses element, we will need to have receipts for expenditure – so if you’ve hired a home help or a childminder, keep hold of receipts for their fees. Similarly, keep taxi receipts, bus tickets and chemist receipts for prescriptions.
