    Welcome to Accident Advice Helpline. We’re able to provide you with a wealth of helpful advice and information which can give you everything you need to claim compensation after a serious accident. This article is intended to show you what you need to know and how you can find the best Selby ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers to take on your case for you. Think of it as a kind of personal injury law 101 lesson.

    Selby ‘no win, no fee’ claims

    Here are three different things which you’ll have to bear in mind when making a personal injury claim – injury, blame and timing.

    First, your injury needs to be bad enough to warrant a personal injury claim. If you think we live in a world in which small bumps and scrapes can be enough to claim millions then you’ll need to think again. The law says that if you are injured in an accident you’ll have to prove that it has had a negative effect on your quality of life. This means something which has required medical treatment so if you don’t have this the chances are we can’t help you.

    The accident must also have happened no more than three years ago. This is the time limit placed on personal injury claims. It’s there because beyond that time it is assumed that recollections can become unreliable. However there is an exception in the case of children. They will have until the age of eighteen before they have to decide whether or not to take a case. They can launch litigation earlier, but they don’t have to. In theory, a person could be injured at the age of four, wait fourteen years until they turn 18 and then another three before they decide to make a claim.

    Finally, there is the question of blame. We all understand the concept that if an accident was not your fault then you should be entitled to claim compensation. By that we tend to naturally assume that if it was not your fault then it must be someone else’s fault, but that is not always the case. Accidents do happen from time to time and when someone is injured when blame cannot be apportioned – that’s when things can get a little complicated. If you can’t show that the other side was at fault then you will not be able to make a claim.
