One of the problems that face innocent accident victims is how to decide if they should claim compensation for their injuries. They often feel traumatised enough without the thought of taking legal action hanging over them. At Accident Advice Helpline, we try to help people decide whether or not it is worthwhile making a claim by offering services that include expert legal advice, a team of expert solicitors and an injury claims calculator.
Using the injury claims calculator at Accident Advice Helpline
If you are thinking of claiming compensation for your injuries, you need to find out if you are eligible to claim, as there are 3 general criteria that must be met:
- The accident should not have been your fault
- It must have happened within the last 3 years
- You should have received medical treatment for your injuries following the accident
If you are not sure if you have a legitimate case, give our helpline a call and one of our advisers will be able to tell you if you are eligible. They will also provide an estimate of the amount of compensation you could receive by using the injury claims calculator.
If you do not want to speak to anyone about your accident, have a read though the information on our website, and try our 30-second test. This is the title of our injury claims calculator for UK accidents that victims can use to find out a rough idea of how much compensation they could receive. All you need to do is input a few basic details about your accident, and the results will be returned immediately.
How using the injury claims calculator helps accident victims
Although the figure returned by the calculator is just an estimate, it is derived from the results of similar cases that we have dealt with in the past. It allows you to get an idea of the compensation amount that other people have received, and helps you decide whether or not it is worthwhile making a claim.
If you decide to go ahead with a claim ,you will have access to the expert services of our solicitors. You will be pleased to know that all of our solicitors operate on a basis of no-win, no- fee, so there are no up-front costs to get your claim started.
The first thing you should do if you are thinking of claiming compensation, is to confirm that you are eligible to claim by either phoning our 24-hour helpline, or using the injury claims calculator on our website. Only by doing this can you get an idea of the compensation amount that you might receive. Call us on 0800 689 0500 (landline) or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile phone.
