Road traffic accidents
One of the most common types of accidents that we deal with at Accident Advice Helpline involve road traffic collisions. These can occur for any number of reasons, involving a wide variety of people from drivers, to passengers and even pedestrians, and can cause a variety of personal injuries.
Such injuries can range from the relatively minor, usually in the form of bumps, bruises and whiplash; to more severe injuries such as broken bones, amputations and even fatalities. If you have been affected by a road traffic accident and think you might be entitled to receive compensation as a result, then Accident Advice Helpline will be able to provide you with more information and help you with your claim.
How long does a Wirral compensation claim take?
When it comes to making a compensation claim many people want to know from the onset how long it is going to take before compensation is awarded.
Unfortunately, this is not an easy question to answer, especially without knowing the specific details of your individual claim. However, there are two main factors which are likely to impact on how long your claim will take to settle.
Firstly, it will depend on whether the person you are seeking Wirral compensation against has admitted liability for the accident. If they do then this will mean that your claim can potentially be settled quite quickly. However, if they are disputing liability for any reason then it will inevitably take longer. In this instance then your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will need to provide proof that the other driver is liable, and this may take some time. Witness statements will need to be gathered where possible, along with any CCTV or photographs taken at the time of the accident.
The second factor which is likely to make a difference in terms of settling your compensation claim is the severity of your injuries sustained. Claimants may need to be assessed by an independent medical expert in order for a report to be produced detailing the full extent of injuries. Generally speaking this assessment is concluded after all symptoms associated with your injuries have subsided. If your injury is ongoing, then you are likely to have a report completed anywhere between three and six months after the date of the accident.
