How to find solicitors in Hardwick after an injury
If you live in Hardwick and were injured in an accident, you may now be recovering and wondering if you are entitled to claim compensation. You may also be wondering what to do, as there aren’t any solicitors in Hardwick to help you with a personal injury compensation claim.

All you have to do is contact us at Accident Advice Helpline. As we deal with the majority of claims over the phone, we can be your solicitors in Hardwick.
Can you claim compensation for your injuries?
To be able to make a personal injury compensation claim, there are a few points you need to satisfy. The first, and most important is to prove that someone other that you was responsible for your accident and injury. If the accident happened in the street, then the police should have been called. They investigate the causes of accidents and compile an accident report on completion of their investigations. This should exonerate you from blame and pinpoint who caused the accident.
You should have had immediate medical treatment following the accident. Your medical records and doctor’s report will be needed to prove that you did. These documents are also required if your claim is successful. That is because they detail your injuries. The amount you are awarded in terms of general damages is calculated using these papers.
Also you need, usually, to make a claim within three years of the date of an accident, although there are some exceptions to this rule.
To find out more about the claims’ process, call us at Accident Advice Helpline and let us act as your solicitors in Hardwick.
How much compensation?
We can’t tell you precisely how much compensation you could expect if your claim is successful. Actually, no one can.
General damages, as mentioned above, are awarded to compensate you for your pain suffering and any loss of quality of life and so on. The more serious your injuries, the more you can be awarded in terms of compensation.
Special damages can also be awarded. These are designed to reimburse you for any expenses directly arising from your injuries. They also can include loss of earnings, past and future and so on. You should not be worse off financially after your accident.
