1,2,3 – The Basics of Claiming Compensation

Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm, specialising in helping people claim compensation. The best way to ensure success is to have a solicitor representing you that knows the ‘ins and outs’ of claiming financial justice… and you will have found the right solicitor in Simonsbath when you call Accident Advice Helpline!

But is it as easy as 1,2,3 when it comes to claiming compensation?

In cases considered by a solicitor in Simonsbath to be straightforward, yes it is but ALL cases, regardless of their simplicity or complexity, must have the 1,2,3 of personal injury law at their heart to have any chance of success.

1. NOT your fault

Personal injury states that in order for someone to have a potential claim for compensation against someone else, company, agency, council etc. the accident must not have been their fault. This is also true for clients who intend on having our solicitor in Simonsbath to help them make a claim for industrial disease and accident.

For example, if you were supplied with protective eye wear and chose not to wear them, ignoring health and safety guidelines, but then received an eye injury, claiming compensation may not be a path open to you.

However, if a piece of machinery worked loose, injuring you, with an investigation concluding the machine was not maintained correctly, the compensation path could be open to you.

2. Medical attention

And so, with one box ticked you now just need to make sure you meet the other two criteria! The second must-have factor in your compensation case, is medical attention and treatment for your injuries.

Our solicitor in Simonsbath will tell you that in many cases, people assume that because their injuries are physical and obvious, they are entitled to claim BUT, there is no room for self-diagnosis or self-medication. If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you should (must) seek medical attention, no matter how minor or obvious you consider the injuries.

3. Deadline

And the third and final factor is the deadline, of which not many people are aware. Personal injury law states that you must claim within three years of the date of your accident (this timeframe is applied different in cases of industrial disease – industrial accidents come under the three year from the date).

Your solicitor in Simonsbath will advise that your claim as soon as you reasonably can after the accident; this is because the incident is fresher in the mind. Time has a habit of dulling the memory hence, unless your accident was significant in size and impact, do not let time run away with you.

Now you have the basics, why not call Accident Advice Helpline to see if your compensation case could be a potentially successful one? Call on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone for free, no obligation advice about making a claim for compensation.
