If you’ve been hurt in an accident, don’t let ignorance stand in your way of claiming the compensation to which you’re entitled. Here we’ll help you find out everything you need to know to find the right solicitor in Lancing.
Knowing the territory
When people call us, one of the most common things they say is that they hadn’t even thought about whether or not they were entitled to make a claim. Often it’s only when a friend makes the suggestion or they see an advertisement on the television that they consider claiming compensation. For this reason we thought we’d list some of the things you ought to know.
What can you claim for?
The first thing that people make a mistake about is what they can claim for. Often they think that the accident they’ve suffered will not be covered by personal injury law. However, any type of accident can count as long as it was not your fault and has led to an injury which has required medical treatment.
It could be an injury in the workplace, an accident in the street or an injury in a car accident – these are some of the more common accidents we find, but anything can count. There may be a criminal injury or a condition contracted as a result of medical malpractice. Whatever the type of accident, the rules hold that if there is blame there may well be a claim.
Injuries can be anything from minor issues such as whiplash which can be fixed in a few weeks to more serious long term injuries such as a broken leg or something that causes lasting and ongoing medical problems.
Getting the right solicitor in Lancing
The type of lawyer you choose will also depend on the type of accident you’ve suffered. Most lawyers specialise in one or more types of personal injury law and will probably stick to that. However, at Accident Advice Helpline we have lawyers based all over the country with a range of expertise. This means we’ll find someone with the experience and expertise to help with your case.
Some claims are also pretty straightforward and will be finished within a few months while some will take several years. If that happens then you need a law firm that has the resources to fight a long case.
