We are a busy motoring nation. In the first four months of 2012 here in the UK we travelled 59.4 billion vehicle miles (Dept. for Transport). We rely on our cars to get us to and from work, as well as all the social and family things we need to do. So it comes as no surprise that RTAs (road traffic accidents) can be fairly commonplace. Sometimes, through no fault of our own, we can be on the receiving end of these accidents, which in some cases can cause us significant personal injury.
The RTA compensation calculator
Here at the Accident Advice Helpline we’ve developed a unique tool, a 30-second test that will tell within seconds if you have a claim. The test uses three simple questions:
- Have you had an accident that wasn’t your fault?
- Did you receive medical treatment for your injuries?
- Was the RTA in the last three years?
Our advisors will ask you further details of the accident and your injuries. From the information you give us, the compensation calculator will be able to tell you straight away if you have an eligible claim, as well give you an indication of the amount you could claim for.
The compensation calculator also highlights any additional costs you can claim for. Quite often what looks like minor damage to your car can be serious and your car could be off the road. But, at the same time, your personal injuries may result in you being temporarily unable to drive, so how will you get to your medical appointments? Prescription charges can be cripplingly expensive as you pay per item. How will you pay if you need two or three different types of medication for a period of time? These are all questions and concerns that we know claimants have.
When the compensation calculator gives an indication that you have a claim, we will then put in you in touch with a solicitor that specialises in road traffic accident compensation claims. We want to ensure that you have the best chance of claiming what you are legally entitled to and so we select only the best legal professionals.
Of course, this all sounds very expensive, but for a start the use of the compensation calculator is free of charge to everybody, whether you chose to continue with your claim or not. All our solicitors operate on a no win no fee* basis so there is nothing to pay up front, and no big legal bills if you are unsuccessful with your claim.
Claiming compensation by using our ‘tried and trusted’ compensation calculator ensures that you claim what you are legally entitled to. Many people don’t claim compensation when they’ve suffered an injury as a result of an RTA – don’t be one of them! Contact us today!
