Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and when they cause you to sustain serious injuries in Surrey, or wherever else you are located, your entire life can change for the worse. Aside from physical pain and mental, anguish, you may incur a range of financial losses and expenses.
Claiming for serious injuries in Surrey
In the event that someone else caused the accident that led to your serious injuries in Surrey, you will be able to recover your losses through making a claim for personal injury compensation.
Here are three important factors to note before you decide to make a claim.
- Evidence is vital
After the accident, you will need to collect evidence. This might include photos of the accident scene and statements from eyewitnesses. If the other side disputes your claim, you will need this evidence to support your right to personal injury compensation
- Waiting could wreck your chances of receiving compensation
If you wait too long to contact a lawyer, you may lose out on personal injury compensation. All claims are subject to a time limit, known as the Statute of Limitations, and if you do not file your claim in time, the other side may refuse to compensate you for the accident.
- Your choice of lawyer could make all the difference to the success of your claim
It is crucial to consult with an Accident Advice Helpline lawyer soon as possible to protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve. The claims process can be difficult and emotional, so it is best to hire an experienced lawyer from the outset. If you have a valid claim, you will be able to hire representation on a 100% no win, no fee basis, which means that you can start a claim without worrying about the cost.
If you fit the legal rules for claiming compensation, then you have every right, legally and morally, to make a claim. The compensation you are awarded can help to make it a little easier to cope with your injuries, and to ease the financial hardship an accident can cause.
