FAQ'S ( Frequently asked questions )
Do I have a case for an accident claim, can i claim?
If you feel someone else was to blame for your accident or illness, then there’s a good chance they are. You have to bring your claim within a certain period. This is usually three years from the date of the accident. However, there are exceptions to this rule, so don’t be put off making an enquiry just because the accident was more than three years ago, especially if you have only just realised that you might have a claim. In very basic terms if you have had a non fault accident you are within your rights to pursue an accident claim.
How much might my claim be worth?
Most people are quite surprised by how much an injury is worth, even for relatively minor injuries. As well as compensation for pain and suffering (General Damages), it is possible to claim for out of pocket expenses (Special Damages) eg loss of wages, medical costs, damaged clothing. If you have been off work for so long that your pension is affected, you can include a claim for that too. Solicitors will only take on cases with a minimum value of £1000. Therefore, from your claim, your ompensation payout will be a minimum of £1000.
Will I have to go to Court?
The vast majority of claims are settled out of Court, so please don’t be afraid of making enquiries just for this reason. Even if Court proceedings have to be issued, most cases still settle without you having to go to Court.
How long will it take?
Accident claims vary enormously in the amount of time they take. It depends on whether the other side agree they are liable, how serious your injuries are, and how long you take to recover. As a general guide as long as the negligent party is insured, cases take 5 - 8 months on average. More complex cases take longer. If your claim involves different or unusual areas of law or very serious injuries, it can take several years. In such cases we will usually be able to obtain an interim payment on account to help you cope.
Will it really cost me nothing, win or lose, how do Accident Claim Help Centre make a profit?
Yes, with Accident Claim Help Centre it will cost you nothing at all. Accident Claim Help Centre do not charge you a single penny for their services. We make our profits from a refrerral fee for our marketing and claim handling from the solicitors that we put forward to handle your claim. We also may obtain profits from car hire where we provide you with a courtesy car when you have been involved in non fault accident. Once again all charges are paid by the negligent party and you do not pay a single penny!
What is the difference between you and the claims management companies I see advertised on TV?
Some companies (known as Claim Handlers) have no lawyers of their own. They pass your details for a fee to their chosen solicitors. The claim handler then has nothing more to do with you. However here at Accident Claim Help Centre we liase with your solicitor at the outset of your claim to the end. We have regular contact with your solicitor, who we ensure that your claim is dealt with efficiently. In addition we provide free advice on what you are able to claim for and ensure everything is in order so you can get all the compensation you deserve. Most other claim management companies tend to charge 25% of your winnings at the end of the claim settlement. For example, if you had been awarded £2000 compensation you would only be receiving £1500 as the claim management company would have charged you £500 which is 25% of your compensation. Here at Accident Claim Help Centre we offer an immaculate service and we believe whatever you have been awarded you should keep as it is your compensation, therefore with Accident Claim Help Centre you get to keep your full 100% compensation, no catches and no strings attached!
Shall i not go to a solicitor direct so i can obtain more compensation without the need to go to a company like yourselves who might take some of my compensation?
With Accident Claim Help Centre , you cut out the middle man. You deal directly with your chosen specialist lawyer who has full contact with you from start to finish. The problem with solicitors is that they are very busy people and sometimes they may not be able to attend your call. That is why Accident Claim Help Centre are there to ensure claimants are looked after and receive maximum compensation. We offer 100% compensation and do not charge or deduct a single penny from your compensation.
Do your solicitors work on a 'No Win, No Fee' basis?
Yes through an arrangement known as a Conditional Fee Agreement or CFA. We always discuss the different ways of funding a claim at the first point of contact..
I am frightened of making a claim against my employers in case I lose my job
Many people who have had accidents at work are concerned about this. You should bear in mind that an employer is not allowed to sack you just because you are injured at work. You should be allowed a reasonable time to recover.
A good employer will recognise your right to make a claim and will not be unhappy if you do so. Employers have to have insurance by law so it will not be their own money.As you have three years to bring a claim you can afford to wait a while if this is a worry to you but you should take legal advice straightaway because you just do not know what the future holds, particularly if you injury is serious.
I am insured what is the difference between using my insurance company and Accident Claim Help Centre?
Your own insurance company will expect you to repair your own vehicle by paying your own excess and therefore will delay your claim. In addition they will not offer you a courtesy vehicle. Even if they do offer you a replacement vehicle it will be smaller than your vehicle. We can offer you a like for like replacement vehicle, and ensure you get the compensation you deserve. You will not have to continuously call your own insurance company to get feedback from the other party. We will deal directly with the at fault party and keep you updated on a weekly basis.
I am a taxi driver, what can i claim for?
As a taxi driver you would be surprised to know what you can claim for after you have had an accident. Most claim companies recover just the personal injury compensation and the damage to the vehicle. Here at Accident Claim Help Centre we have specialists taxi accident advisors who will endeavour to get you back all of your compensation. With so many years in the trade, we know exactly what you can claim for. On average, we recover at least minimum £2500 in compensation for taxi drivers.
