FAQs about working with a personal injury solicitor in Bewdley
When it comes to making a compensation claim, it’s normal to have a lot of questions.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we strive to make the process as simple as possible so that everyone can get access to the information they need whenever it’s convenient. Here, we take a look at some frequently asked questions pertaining to the claims process in general, and provide some helpful information about working with an injury solicitor in Bewdley.
Why make a claim?
Many people don’t realise that it is actually a legal right to seek compensation. According to British law, if you’ve been hurt because of someone else’s negligence, you have a right to make a claim. We work hard to raise awareness about this right, which is one of the reasons Esther Rantzen joined our team in 2003. We believe everyone that is entitled to claim compensation should do so, as this money can help with a number of things from supplementing loss of income to paying for medical bills and expenses.
How much does it cost?
It’s affordable to make a compensation claim with our No Win, No Fee personal injury solicitor in Bewdley at Accident Advice Helpline. This conditional fee agreement means there’s nothing to pay upfront, and absolutely nothing to pay unless your case is successful.
How do I know if I’m eligible?
You can make a claim provided you were hurt in an accident that was in no way your fault. Whether it was at work, in a public place, on the road or even overseas – if your accident arose as a result of someone else’s negligence, they should be held responsible and you should contact us to speak to a solicitor in Bewdley.
What about an accident that happened some time ago?
In order to make a claim for your injuries, you must have sustained them in an accident that took place within the past three years. This rule changes slightly if you were under 18 at the time of the accident, or it is an industrial illness you are claiming for.
Can I make a claim for a loved one?
There are many instances in which the person that suffered the injury may not be able to make a claim for themselves. For example, if you were involved in a car accident with your children in the vehicle, or if a loved one was involved in a catastrophic injury that left them impaired, you may wish to make a claim on their behalf. We can help you do this, handling every case with compassion and expertise to ease the stress on you and your family.
How do I get started?
Getting started is as easy as getting a quote, having a no-obligation consultation and then connecting with a solicitor to handle your case. To find out more, contact Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 180 4123.
