Eton is best known for the famous public school, Eton College. But there is much more to the town than the sound education it offers. It lies on the opposite side of the River Thames to Windsor and the two are connected by Windsor Bridge. A town with a population of about 5,000, it has excellent transport links by bus, rail or road.
Whether you travel by public transport or drive your own car, there is always the possibility of being injured in an accident that was not your fault and if this has happened to you in the last three years you should look at the option of claiming compensation. Our solicitors in Eton can help you with this, and have prepared answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.
The solicitors in Eton explain about compensation calculators
One of the first questions most victims want to know when considering making a claim is how much are they likely to be awarded. On Accident Advice Helpline’s website there is a compensation calculator called the 30-second test. We call it this because that is all it takes from start to finish to get an estimate of how much to expect.
What you have to remember with all compensation calculators though is that they can only ever give you an estimate because there are to many variables that can affect each claim.
The solicitors in Eton explain about ‘no-win, no-fee’ agreements
We operate on a ‘no-win, no-fee’ basis because it is the only way we can be certain that everyone entitled to make a claim can afford to do so. With no money to find to start the claim, and no money needed if the claim is lost, it is one less stress for the victim to be concerned about.
Evidence you will need
When making a personal injury claim you need as much evidence as possible to strengthen your case. Witness’s details, photos of the scene perhaps taken on your mobile phone, police reports and anything else you think might be relevant and help your claim.
If the guilty party admits liability, these may not be needed. But if they decide to fight the case, the more evidence you have to give solicitors in Eton the better.
What can be claimed for
An accident usually causes extra financial strain on the purse strings, such as medical and travel expenses. Your income may be reduced because of having to lose time from work. Whatever costs and losses you have incurred because of the accident can be reclaimed, but you have to be able to prove them.
