Below are some questions that we have been asked regularly, regarding how our Shepway car crash compensation lawyers can help with personal injury claims.
Can you explain what Shepway car crash compensation is?
Anyone that has been injured in an accident that was not their fault is entitled to compensation, that is the law of the land. It would be unusual for the compensation to be freely offered, and if it was it would probably be below what you are entitled to. Therefore, the compensation for your personal injury has to be claimed from the guilty party.
When can I use the Shepway car crash compensation lawyers?
As long as you fit the criteria, you can use the Shepway car crash compensation solicitors whenever you want, although it does appear that claims made sooner rather than later have more chance of success. The rules you need to fit are:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else
- You must have sustained bodily injuries
- The injuries must have been severe enough to need medical attention
- The accident should have happened within the last three years
Are there any accidents not covered by personal injury compensation claims?
As long as the accident was not your fault, they all come within the realms of personal injury claims, although some are more common than others, such as:
- Road traffic accidents
- Food poisoning
- Work-related accidents
- Industrial illnesses and diseases
- Holiday accidents
- Medical negligence
- Slips, trips and falls
- Accidents in schools, colleges and universities
- Defective product accidents
However you were injured, as long as it wasn’t your fault, then you could be able to make an injury claim by using Accident Advice Helpline.
How is the claim calculated?
The claim is made up of many things, and can include:
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- Loss of earnings
- Care costs
