If you have been injured in a truck accident and you did not cause the accident, there is a good chance that you will be eligible to file a compensation claim. Regardless of the severity of the injury you have sustained, you should discuss your case with one of the trained claims advisers here at Accident Advice Helpline.
Do I need to file my claim right away?
If you have a valid case for compensation and you were over the age of 18 at the time of your accident, you must start your claim within three years of the date of your accident. If, on the other hand, you were under the age of 18 at the time of your accident, you must start your claim before you turn 21 years of age. If you exceed the three-year time limit, you may lose your right to receive a truck accident settlement from the guilty party.
How will you value my truck accident settlement?
As part of the claims process, you will need to see an independent medical specialist so that your legal team can accurately assess the value of your truck accident settlement. If you fail to attend your appointment, it could have a detrimental impact on the outcome of your claim.
Will I have to complete a mountain of paperwork?
Your legal team will complete the majority of the paperwork on your behalf, granting you the chance to focus all your efforts on recovering from your injury. All you will need to do is check the details and sign to confirm that you wish to go ahead with your claim.
How will I pay for my claim?
If you have a valid claim for compensation, your truck accident lawyer will be able to take on your claim on a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ basis. This means that you will not have to meet the cost of any upfront legal fees.
