How to claim compensation for personal injury… step-by-step
Accident Advice Helpline, along with their solicitor in Threshfield, have been helping people claim compensation for over 10 years now. Here is our step-by-step guide to claiming the compensation you are entitled to…
Step 1: Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500
…or contact us using our online form, found on our website. It is essential for all concerns – you and our solicitor in Threshfield – to know right from the start if you have a possible claim for compensation.
Step 2: Talk through your potential claim with an Accident Advice Helpline adviser
The advisers who work our phone lines are all expert and experienced in helping you not only start the claim process, but understand it too. They will talk through your claim, assessing it against the criteria as laid down by personal injury law in the UK.
The three basic criteria in personal injury law are:
- The accident in which you were hurt was NOT your fault
- Your injuries were treated by a medical professional
- It happened in the last 3 years
Step 3: Decide if you want to continue with your claim
Claiming compensation with our solicitor in Threshfield is not compulsory and neither are you under any obligation to continue your claim with Accident Advice Helpline; the decision is entirely yours!
Step 4: Claim compensation with the best solicitor in Threshfield at Accident Advice Helpline
Once you have decided to continue, your case will be passed to the right solicitor on our team for your case, which may be our solicitor in Threshfield. They will put together a case that is detailed and irrefutable – in other words, the ‘other side’ will see if they have little choice but to accept liability for your accident.
Step 5: Sit back
… And let your solicitor fight your corner! You can concentrate on getting your life back on track.
Step 6: An offer will be made
Hopefully, without too much ado, you will be offered a ‘settlement’; in other words, the other side have accepted they caused your accident and make you an offer of compensation. With the expert help and guidance of your solicitor in Threshfield, you can decide whether to accept the offer or not.
Step 6a: Assessments
It may be that your case is more complex than this and requires independent assessments, either for medical reasons or to assess the situation in which you were injured. It may be that this helps your case, but follow the advice of your legal team.
If you think our solicitor in Threshfield could help you, simply call us and we can help you claim the compensation to which you are entitled!
