Following an accident, your priority will no doubt be to recover from your injuries and get back to your everyday life. But for many people, this can take considerable time, to the extent that it impacts them financially. If that has happened to you, then you might well be considering making a claim for financial compensation.
Financial compensation is there for you, if you have been injured in an accident because of somebody else’s actions. The law makes it very clear that you have the legal right to compensation for your injuries under the circumstances. Financial compensation could help you to recover your losses from your injuries; pay for all the medical care you need; and it can even provide a financial safety net for you throughout your period of recovery.
Getting the claims process started
If you have been injured in an accident and you are thinking about making a claim, the first thing you should do is seek out expert legal advice.
The good news with regards to this is that you can get legal advice from the comfort of your own home. You don’t need to pop into your local law firm’s office. The way to do this is to call an accident claims helpline. By calling aUK accident helpline, you can get answers to all your claims-related questions and speak with a compassionate, highly trained claims advisor who is qualified to provide claims advice. Questions you could get answered include:
- Am I eligible for compensation?
- How much compensation could I claim?
- How long do I have to make my claim?
- How long will the claims process take to unfold?
- Who will my claim be against?
- Can I return to work during the claims process?
If you have any concerns about the claims process or if you are unsure about your eligibility, you can get answers to your questions by calling an accident helpline.
How do I know I can trust an accident helpline?
Not all accident helplines are created equal, and we strongly recommend doing some research before you call anybody for legal advice. The most important things to consider are as follows: The helpline you call should always be operated and run by a law firm – not a claims management company – and the helpline you contact should always be free to call, and be offered with 100% no obligation to make a claim.
It is also worthwhile asking what the escalation process is. For example, the best helplines can refer you to a solicitor, should you have a specific legal question. You should also check out any reviews for the helpline in question, to see what real people are saying about it.
