Good afternoon everyone.
I thought I’d try and address this pretty crucial question for anyone who has been unlucky enough to have had an accident or suffered an injury.
The short answer is just give us a free call, or send us a quick free case evaluation message by clicking through the contact button below. We’ll let you know pretty soon whether we think you have a good chance of winning a claim.
We do have a fault based system of justice in England and Wales, so you normally have to have some person or body (like an employer at fault or a driver at fault) to bring a claim against. The identity of the opponent can often be quite simple and obvious, but sometimes it can be complex. You don’t need to worry too much though, because if you tell us the circumstances of the accident then we can tell you whether you have good prospects of succeeding in a claim and, if so, against whom it ought to be brought. There are even some strange circumstances where you don’t strictly have to have a genuine opponent, but you can still bring a claim.
We often get contacted by people who are really uncertain, even embarrassed, about whether or not they might have a claim; in fact some people blame themselves for their accident. Once again, it’s free to find out, so just contact us and we’ll talk it through with you.
The case studies on our website ought to help you with some good examples and the claims process section will do too.
One crucial and simple piece of advice for all accident victims is that time limits apply to the bringing of claims. It makes sense to get on with any claim as soon as possible, because you don’t want to lose out on any chance of claiming simply by missing a time limit. Information can be lost over time too and witnesses can be lost and evidence can go cold. I’d urge you to call us for free as soon as possible, if you want to consider whether you might have a claim.
Some people worry that they are doing something wrong in thinking of claiming, but remember that you have already suffered an injury, don’t make things worse by missing out on a chance to recover proper compensation. The law decides whether you may be entitled to it, so enquire with us today.
That’s all for now,
