There is a lot of confusion surrounding personal injury law. That’s possibly why we deal with over 25,000 queries every month about claiming for compensation after an accident. Some of the more common questions we get asked are whether it’s possible to make a claim; how much will it cost; and how do you get started with Wokingham accident claims? The answers couldn’t be simpler: all you have to do is pick up the phone to us. We’ll be able to give you all the details. And the good news is that it won’t cost you a penny to find out.
When can people make accident claims?
There are a few criteria your accident must meet if you are to be able to make a claim.
Firstly, your accident must usually have occurred within the last three years. There can be exceptions to this. You may have longer to claim, for instance, if the accident happened when you were a minor.
Secondly, your accident must have caused you injuries that required medical treatment, whether immediately or subsequently. Some injuries are not apparent until after the event. Whiplash from a road traffic accident, for example, can take two to three days to manifest itself. You may not feel the effects of industrial diseases until many years after. But you can still make a claim, provided you stick to the time limits laid down in law.
Thirdly, someone else must have been to blame for the accident. They may have been careless. or they may have been negligent.
Call us to discuss your claim. We’ll tell you whether we think you have a case.
