Over three million people are injured in accidents each year – at home, on the roads, at work or outdoors. In many cases, these accidents result from someone else’s carelessness and the victims have a right to receive compensation.
Make a claim for Wells compensation – it is easier than you think
Although personal injury law can be complicated, with the help of a solicitor the process of making a claim can be relatively simple. At Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors offer 100% no win no fee legal representation and they will be able to tell you if you have a justifiable claim for compensation.
If you make a claim and the guilty party admits to causing your accident, you will receive two types of awards. The first of these is referred to as general damages and it will relate to the pain and suffering you have had to endure as a result of your injury. The second award is referred to as special damages and it will relate to the financial losses and expenses you have been forced to encounter as a result of your accident.
In order to walk away with a fair Wells compensation settlement, you must be able to provide documentary proof of your injuries and financial losses. We may therefore arrange for a medical specialist to draw up a report detailing the nature and severity of your injuries and/or instruct you to keep evidence of all the expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury.
If you have sustained serious injuries, our accident lawyers may be able to secure interim payments while negotiations into your Wells compensation claim are ongoing. These payments will help you to clear any debts you have accumulated, meet the cost of any urgent medical treatment you require, make adaptations to your home and pay for any necessary aids and equipment, such as wheelchairs and walking frames.
