If you want to make a personal injury compensation claim you must do so within three years of the road traffic accident occurring; the claims experts at Michael Elwin are happy to offer you a free assessment of your eligibility.
There are certain criteria you must meet in order to be eligible to receive a compensation award. If the following applies to you there is a good chance you will be eligible to make a claim under our no win no fee agreement:
? The accident has taken place within the last three years on a road in the UK.
? You reported the road traffic collision to the police no later than 14 days after it occurred.
? The accident has to have been caused either intentionally or unintentionally by a third party driver. If you are at fault in any way for the incident taking place you will to receive an award.
? You have kept your losses following the accident to a minimum.
? There is evidence of the injuries you sustained in the incident. You should always seek medical advice from your GP after an accident if the injuries did not require you to attend hospital.
If there is no medical evidence of your injuries there is nothing to base your award amount on. It is likely that you will need to be seen by an independent medical profession for an assessment of your injuries if you have not seen your GP. This will be arranged for you and it is critical you attend if you want to receive a compensation award.
To find out if you qualify for making a personal injury compensation claim you need to speak to a claims expert that specialises in this area. Michael Lewin Solicitors have an entire team of experts dedicated to claiming personal injury compensation.
The amount of compensation you are awarded for your injuries depends entirely on the medical report. Your award amount is based on:
? The type of injury you have sustained.
? Whether you have sustained more than one injury.
? The severity of the injury and the amount of time it has taken you to recover fully.
? The extent to which the injury has affected your life in any way; either your leisure time or your work time.
