Do you have local solicitors in Winchmore Hill?

How long have you got to make a claim?
You must settle your claim, or issue it in court, within three years of the date on which your accident occurred. If you were under the age of 18 at the time of the accident, you must start your claim within three years of your 18th birthday. If you fail to make your claim in a timely manner, you will lose your eligibility to receive compensation from the guilty party.
How long will your claim take?
If your claim is relatively straightforward, and the guilty party openly admits liability, our solicitors may be able to resolve your claim within as little as a few months. However, if your claim is complex because you have suffered severe injuries and/or the guilty party refuses to admit liability, we may need to take your case through the courts.
How much compensation are you likely to receive?
In the early stages of your case, it will be difficult for our personal injury solicitors to determine the potential value of your claim. Once you have attended a medical examination and made a list of all your financial losses and expenses, your solicitors will be able to value your compensation settlement with greater confidence.
Will solicitors encourage you to take your case through the courts?
If the guilty party is reluctant to admit fault, or fails to propose a reasonable compensation settlement, your accident solicitors may encourage you to take your case to court. At Accident Advice Helpline, we will issue court proceedings at the earliest possible opportunity as, in our experience, the threat of an impending court case usually prompts the guilty party to put forth a reasonable settlement offer.
When will you receive your compensation settlement?
If you win your claim, it may take up to six weeks for the guilty party to send you your compensation settlement. If you require immediate financial assistance, your lawyer may be able to arrange for you to receive an interim compensation payment, which will enable you to pay for your urgent health and social care needs.
