If you’ve been hurt in an accident at work, in a public place or on the roads, you may be inclined to start investigating your options when it comes to making a compensation claim for your injuries. There is some important information you need to know when it comes to determining if you’re eligible, and understanding the compensation claims process.
Why make a compensation claim?
After being involved in an accident, you may find a number of unexpected costs arise. The price of medicine and treatment, travelling to and from hospital appointments and regular household bills can rack up quickly, and paying for everything can be especially difficult if you’ve had to take time off work to focus on your recovery.
By making a claim, you can ensure that you are not left paying for your treatment out of pocket, and that whoever was responsible is made to pay compensation not just for your injuries, but for any costs associated with them as well as for the mental anguish they have caused. Aside from being the morally right thing to do, making a claim is your legal right as well.
When should you make a compensation claim?
The sooner you can make a claim, the better the chances of remembering important details that can play a key role in your argument, and therefore higher the chances of a successful outcome. If you can’t make a claim right away, you have up to three years after the incident to do so, but the sooner you contact our solicitors in Hounslow the better.

We operate on a no-win, no-fee basis, so you will not need any money if we are your solicitors in Hounslow before we start work on your claim. You will not owe us any legal fees if your claim is lost either.
Will you have to face the responsible party in court?
