How to claim compensation in Thanet
If you want to claim compensation because you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault this article will give you some useful information about how to claim.
Who can claim?
First, you may want to check that you can claim compensation:
You can claim personal injury compensation for an injury, or an illness, that you have suffered as a result of being in an accident that wasn’t your fault. Your injury, or illness, needs to have been seen by a doctor/ medical professional, and the accident needs to have taken place in the past three years.
It doesn’t matter where your accident took place; our Thanet accident claim solicitors have made successful claims for people who have been injured in a accident at work, at home, on the road, out shopping or even on holiday!
You can check that you meet the criteria for claiming by calling our helpline on 0800 689 0500 and talking to one of our advisors. There is no charge for using this service.
What is compensation for?
In the main, compensation is of course to compensate you for your injury, but it is also there to make sure that that injury hasn’t left you out of pocket, by reimbursing you for any accident related costs. You can claim back money spent on:
- Vehicle repair, and/ or vehicle hire, if yours was a road accident
- Private medical treatment, therapy, or care
- Medical costs
- Replacing clothing or personal items damaged in your accident
- A holiday or event that you were unable to attend because of your injuries
Your Thanet accident claim solicitor will be able to give you more details about what you can claim for when you come to claim, but for now, keep a note of your expenses, and make sure you keep hold of the relevant receipts, invoices and bank statements.
You can get an estimate of how much compensation you could receive by using the 30 Second Compensation Calculator on our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
