    Successful accident claim


    Top tips for a successful accident claim

    If you have suffered a personal injury sustained in an accident in the last three years which was not your fault, then you are within the standard limitation period and can pursue a personal injury claim.

    The major criterion for a successful accident claim is that the accident in which you sustained a personal injury occurred within the last three years. This is the standard limitation period for a personal injury claim. The accident doesn’t have to have happened recently, although the sooner you begin to hire a solicitor to deal with your accident claim, the quicker you will receive the compensation you deserve.

    Hiring a solicitor

    You need to get in touch with a solicitor who has a record of successful accident claims. In other words, one who specialises in personal injury claims. Accident Advice Helpline are a reputable law firm with expert personal injury solicitors offering a no-win, no-fee legal service.

    Whatever injury you have sustained, you will need medical documentation to prove that your injury came about because of an accident. Your solicitor may also request that you have another medical examination so that there is a second medical opinion regarding the nature of the accident you suffered, as this will strengthen your case so that there is a successful accident claim.

    You need to be honest about exactly how you sustained your injury for a successful accident claim, so that you do not waste either your or your solicitor’s time.

    Practical issues for a successful accident claim

    If you decide to hire a solicitor to present your case, be sure that they specialise in personal injury claims. You would not hire a divorce lawyer, for example, to deal with a personal injury case.

    Make sure that you have all the necessary documentation, such as copies of police reports or medical reports to support your claim. Your solicitor will need to be in possession of all the facts regarding your accident in order to represent you well so that the case results in a successful accident claim.

    Don’t worry about claiming for an injury suffered in an accident. Remember that you are entitled to claim compensation for a personal injury that was not caused through any fault of your own. In the UK, we are not as litigious as our American cousins, but if you have a case then you should claim for your injury!
