If you have been involved in a serious accident which left you with injuries that may affect your life for a long time to come, you are entirely within your rights to want to make Stoke-on-Trent claims for compensation against the person that was at fault for your accident. It is normal to be somewhat nervous about making a claim, though, so it is worth you thinking about the accident and what led to it, as well as how likely it is that you will be able to make a claim successfully before you move forward with one. Here are some of the ways in which you can make the first step towards making your claim.
Find out about the claims process
You can call Accident Advice Helpline to find out information about the claims process and what will happen if you make a claim, but you can also find out information by looking online and reading up on making claims. You should research what types of claims can be made and how much you might expect to see from your claim, as well as what will happen throughout the process.
Find out who was at fault
If the police were present at the scene of your accident, they should have put together an accident report which you can refer to, as well as opened a case. If the other party was prosecuted for the part they played in your accident, you should be able to make a compensation claim. Also, any time that the other party has apologised for the accident, this is great evidence to prove that they admit fault in your accident and should go towards making a successful claim.
Making Stoke-on-Trent claims
If you decide that you do want to make Stoke-on-Trent claims against the person that caused your accident, the first thing that you want to do is find out whether or not an injury lawyer is likely to represent you in your claim. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone, or you can text “claim365” to 88010 and the team will be more than happy to discuss your accident with you and help you to decide whether or not you have a good case for a claim.
If you do then you will be passed over to a dedicated injury lawyer, working on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis to get you the compensation that you deserve. You will be able to find out any information about the claims process that you want to know, care of the helpline, and will be kept updated as your claim progresses as well.
