    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Solicitors in Trinity


    Are you intimidated by the thought of trying to find solicitors in Trinity who can help you to find compensation for your injury? If so, that’s only natural. This is a difficult world to understand if you’ve never had to look into it before, so it’s reasonable to assume that you won’t feel entirely comfortable. However, at Accident Advice Helpline we’ll give you all the information you need to know so you can plan for what comes up ahead.

    How claims are assessed

    There is a very clear list of factors which determine whether or not you have a good claim to make. The first is whether the injury was your fault, by which we assume it must be someone else’s fault; the second is the severity of the injury itself; and the third is the timing of the accident. Here in the UK, there is a three-year time limit on making a claim. If you wait any longer than this, you will be ineligible to claim no matter how good your case might be.

    Making your claim

    Most personal injury cases take place in the small claims court. It is here that you will present your case. In order to stand the very best chance of winning, you will need to be able to prove not only that your injury was bad enough to warrant a personal injury claim, but also that it has had a serious effect on your quality of life. If you cannot prove this, then the chances are that no matter how good your case might be, you will not be able to make a claim.

    Going to court

    However, the good news is that in the majority of cases you will not actually have to go to court at all. If the other side’s legal advisors take the view that their case is not that strong, they will advise them to make a settlement out of court. This avoids the costs of a lengthy and damaging personal injury case, which would end up costing them even more.

    It is possible that their first instinct will be to offer a settlement figure which is far below that to which you are entitled, so this is certainly something to which you’ll have to be wise. That’s why it’s good to get an early estimate so you can set expectations at a realistic level.
