    Sue for damages

    If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault in the last three years, and you’re thinking about making a personal injury claim, you’ve come to the right place.

    With over 15 years of experience and a dedicated team of professionals just waiting to take your case, Accident Advice Helpline have everything that you need for the best possible chance of success.

    Who is eligible to sue for damages?

    Though accidents do happen, when they’re caused by someone else’s negligence or carelessness, you have the right to sue for damages and get the compensation that you deserve.

    As long as the accident in which you were injured wasn’t your fault, and you have evidence to prove it, you can claim compensation and use the money to fund your care, treatment, and recovery.

    Is there a time limit for personal injury claims?

    If you want to sue for damages following an accident, you need to do it within three years.

    There are some exceptions to the rule, such as in cases where the patient was under 18 at the time or in cases of industrial illness, where the effects of the damage may not be apparent for years following the incident.

    How do I know if my case is eligible?

    The easiest way to find out whether or not your case is eligible for compensation is to go to the Accident Advice Helpline website and use our 30-second test.

    This will give you a quick and accurate indication as to whether you can make a claim, and how much compensation you could receive if your claim were to be successful.

    How long does the claims process take?

    As personal injury claims can be complex and each claim is unique, the time that it takes from when you decide to sue for damages to when you receive your compensation can vary widely.

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve got the expertise and resources needed to speed your case along as quickly as possible, though you may still need to employ some patience while waiting for your personal injury compensation.

    If you have any questions of queries about how to sue for damages, or anything else to do with the claims process, call our free 24/7 advice line on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile and speak to one of our friendly and professional members of staff today.
