Advice following your Stockton-on-Tees accident

If your accident wasn’t your fault, did you know that you can probably claim compensation?

Personal injury compensation is available to people who weren’t to blame for their accidents. Your compensation will be awarded for the pain and stress of the injury or illness your accident caused you, and recompense you for any financial losses you suffered as a result.

You have three years from the date of your Stockton-on-Tees accident in which to file a claim for compensation. Personal injury compensation is non-taxable.

Your accident

You can claim personal injury compensation after:

  • Being injured in a car accident;
  • Sustaining injury in an accident at work;
  • Being injured or made unwell from a faulty product, appliance, or service;
  • An injury sustained because you were a victim of a crime;
  • Suffering a psychological illness following any accident, such as stress, depression, or anxiety.

How to claim compensation

To claim compensation, you will need to speak to a legal professional or advisor; they will ask for details of your Stockton-on-Tees accident, so jot down anything that you can remember so you have this to hand.

You will need to recount the date and time of your accident, any observations you had, whether you know of any witnesses, and then of course details of the injury or illness you suffered, and the impact that this had on your life.

You also need to make sure that you keep evidence of any costs arising from your accident. You can claim for things like lost earnings, travel expenses, the cost of private medical care, or to replace personal items damaged in your accident. If you are unsure whether or not something belongs on your claim, keep the relevant receipt or bank statement and your solicitor will be able to help you further at a later date.

Once your adviser has confirmed that you qualify for a compensation payment, you will need to file your claim with a solicitor. For personal injury claims, it is best to use an injury lawyer who will have more experience and expertise in injury law, and will be more likely to get you the maximum amount of compensation.

Using a lawyer who works under a no-win, no-fee* contract will minimise the risks in claiming. Most personal injury claims are settled out of court, so you probably won’t have to attend a court hearing. You cannot get legal aid for a personal injury claim.
