FAQs about personal injury compensation
Q. My quality of life has been affected since I was injured at work. What can I do?
A. If the accident was not your fault, you may be able to claim compensation.
Q. Does it matter how long ago it happened?
A. Yes, it does. You must make the claim within three years of the incident. There are certain exceptions, if the claimant was a minor at the time or in the case of industrial diseases, although extension is discretionary and you should check before you start a claim. Your solicitor will advise you.
Q. Is my claim eligible?
A. Your claim must meet three conditions: It must not have been your fault, you must have had medical treatment as a result and you must apply within three years of the accident happening.
Q. How much will I win?
A. Each case is different, of course, but our Accident Advice Helpline panel of experts will assess the facts you give us and give you an estimate of what your case might be worth. We work with hundreds of solicitors that have a knowledge base of similar cases to compare to yours. Please remember that an estimate is not a guarantee of the outcome or of any final amount given in an award.
Q. I can’t afford legal representation. What can I do?
A. We don’t ask you to pay anything upfront. Unexpected injury Solicitors in the UK work on a no win no fee basis, which means that if your case does not succeed, you won’t pay the legal fees. Accident Advice Helpline does not ask you to pay any deposit or money in advance.
