When a solicitor for Caithness can help you claim
There is a lot to take on board after an accident – coping with your injuries, keeping up with medical appointments and adjusting to other changes in your daily routine. But one thing for which you should make time is thinking about whether you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
There are some circumstances – where the accident was not your fault – in which you may be able to bring a claim for damages against the party at fault, and a solicitor for Caithness from Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim what you are entitled to.
Under what conditions could you claim?
You can usually ask for compensation after an accident which:
- Caused you injuries needing medical attention;
- Was caused by someone else’s carelessness, negligence or criminal act; and
- Happened within the last three years.
In some situations, you may have longer to claim. If you have been diagnosed with an industrial disease, for example, the clock starts ticking from the time you receive your diagnosis, rather than the time when you may have contracted the disease.
Call today to check your eligibility to make a claim. Ring our helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. Our lines are open 24/7, so there’s always someone here to take your call. All of our advisers are happy to talk through the details of your accident and will give you a free no-obligation assessment of your right to claim. We will let you know how likely it is that your case will succeed and give you a broad idea of how much compensation you could receive.
You can also find out more by texting ‘claim365’ to 88010 or trying our 30-second test.
What happens if you make a claim?
If we think that you have a good case, we will ask whether you want to go ahead with making a claim. If you do, then we will find you a solicitor for Caithness with particular experience in your accident type. Having the right solicitor can make all the difference to your chances of claiming successfully. They can also ensure that you receive a fair amount of money in compensation, taking into account the type of injuries you have suffered and the effects they have had on your life.
Your solicitor for Caithness will handle all of the negotiations on your behalf. You may not even have to worry about going to court, as a lot of the cases we win are processed by phone.
Your solicitor for Caithness will make sure that, if you are entitled, you also receive a sum of money that helps towards the financial costs of your accident such as prescriptions, travel fares, childcare, help around the home and loss of earnings.
