    Thinking About Claiming Compensation For Your St Albans Accident?

    There is a large amount of information online about claiming personal injury compensation, which can at times be overwhelming. So we have written a short guide to personal injury compensation which will provide you with some useful information about claiming. After reading this guide you should be able to determine whether or not you qualify for compensation and how to go about claiming it.

    What Is Personal Injury Compensation?

    Personal injury compensation is money paid to an accident victim either at the behest of a court of law, or after an out of court settlement. Most injury claims are settled out of court, this keeps the legal costs down for all parties involved.

    Are You Entitled To Claim?

    This will depend on the circumstances of your St Alban’s accident, but generally speaking, if your St Albans Accident happened in the past three years, and you think that someone was to blame, then you are probably entitled to claim. To check, call 0800 689 0500 and speak to one of our fully trained advisers.

    Claiming

    To proceed with legal action in this, you will need to file a claim with a lawyer who works in injury law. We would recommend using a lawyer who works under a no win no fee* contract, to mitigate the risks involved; you may already be struggling financially after your St Albans accident, and if so will not want to pay ongoing legal fees.

    • The other advantage of using a lawyer who works on a no win no fee* basis is that you can trust that they are being honest about your eligibility to claim, and be confident that they are working their hardest to make sure that your claim is successful.

    What Can You Claim For?

    You compensation will be for the injury, or illness, that you suffered because of your St Albans accident; this injury or illness can be physical and or psychological. Do not be embarrassed about claiming for the psychological impact of your accident; if you experienced stress, sleeping difficulties or anxiety following your ordeal, this is normal. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms and include them in your compensation claim.

    • Nor should you be embarrassed about claiming for a minor injury, as although it is good that your injury was not serious, even a minor injury can have a major impact on people lives and finances, as obviously one or two weeks off from work can lead to a missed mortgage payment and lateness with other bills, and we all know how hard it is to then get back on the straight and narrow. Your claim will take into account any financial costs or losses caused by your St Albans accident, from lost income to replacing that smart phone you had in your pocket at the time.

    We hope this article has been informative, for any more information about claiming compensation please call us on 0800 689 0500 where one of advisers will be happy to help.
