If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault then you are probably here because you want to claim compensation for your injury.

Frequently asked questions about claiming
Can you tell me if I am entitled to compensation?
Yes, you can check that you meet the criteria for claiming by calling our helpline on 0800 689 0500. That’s it! There is no consultation fee to pay, a fully trained advisor will take your call, and should be able to tell you straight away. As a general rule though, you can make an accident claim for any accident that wasn’t your fault.
How long do I have to make a start on my claim?
You have three years from the date of your accident in which to file your claim. But please don’t claim too soon! You can only claim once, so if you claim before you are fully recovered you may not get all of the compensation that you are entitled to.
Will I have to go to court?
It’s very unlikely that your claim will go to court. Our Thurrock, accident claim solicitors work hard to get all of their claims settled in out of court agreements.
Can I get legal aid?
No, you cannot get legal aid for a personal injury claim. But if you claim with our Thurrock, accident claim solicitors, they will work for you under a no win no fee contract, so you can still get your compensation without having to risk your own money paying costly legal fees!
Will I have to go to a medical?
Possibly, but if you do it’s nothing for you to worry about. Medicals take place to ensure that accident victims get the right amount of compensation. If you are asked to go to a medical, it will be held in, or close to, Thurrock, and at a time that suits you.
Does personal injury compensation cover illnesses as well?
Yes, our Thurrock, accident claim solicitors can help you claim for any injury, or illness.
