From finding out if you are eligible, to searching for the right solicitor in Rickmansworth, below are a few of the aspects to consider.
Are you eligible to make a claim?
Eligibility is the first thing to think about prior to making a claim, and you will need to meet the following three criteria:
- The accident must have happened within three years of the start of your claim
- It must not have been your fault
- Your injuries need to have been treated around the time of the accident by a medical professional
If you are not sure whether you are eligible to make a claim, just give our knowledgeable advisors a call on the numbers provided below. We will be able to clarify your situation and provide you with more detail about how to make a claim.
