Do you have questions about claiming compensation?
Many people are intimated by the compensation process, or find the idea of making a claim confusing.
Unfortunately, this can lead to many people that are legally entitled to make a claim to miss out on what could have been thousands of pounds in a settlement. At Accident Advice Helpline, our law firm was founded to help every eligible accident victim access affordable legal representation, and we receive over 25,000 enquiries a month from people seeking our help. Read on to learn more about your rights to compensation as your questions are answered by our expert legal team:
When should I make a claim?
Ideally, you should make a claim as soon after the accident as possible. This will help you remember all the details, which can prove pivotal when making a successful case. In many cases, the injuries sustained in an injury can require an extensive recovery period, which means you may not be able to make a claim right away. For this reason, you have up to three years after an accident to make a claim for any injuries sustained.
How do I know if I’m eligible?
Legally speaking, you are able to make a compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. For example, if you fell from scaffolding that wasn’t properly put together, you could be eligible to claim compensation for injuries sustained in the fall. If you’re unsure of whether you’re eligible to work with personal injury solicitors in Houghton Regis, you should contact us for a consultation.
When do I have to pay my solicitor?
