Make your scooter accident claim with Truth Legal Personal Injury specialist solicitors, here to support you in gaining compensation.
If you have been injured whilst riding your scooter and someone else was at fault, you may be able to claim compensation.
Truth Legal Personal Injury solicitors are here to fight your corner, securing compensation for your injuries, recovery support and any financial losses you have incurred following your accident.
Claiming compensation following an accident is a way of taking positive action against the harm you have suffered. Whilst you can’t literally ‘undo’ the accident, you can obtain some financial redress for your injuries, and for the other losses you have suffered.
The unfortunate fact is that you will experience the consequences of the accident even if you do not make a claim. Claiming compensation may not be perfect, but it is often the only practical way of fixing the wrong you have suffered.
A compensation claim can also allow you:
You should always choose your legal representatives yourself when making a personal injury claim. You have to be sure that your solicitors are ‘right’ for you and your claim. You need skilled professionals that you trust.
At Truth Legal, our team of fully-qualified and experienced solicitors and Legal Executives have the abilities to recover the maximum compensation you deserve. We pride ourselves on providing an ethical, honest service to all of our clients. We are based in Harrogate with a presence in York, Manchester, and London. Find out more about our team of experts.
If you have already started a claim, you may find that your case has been assigned to a law firm you haven’t chosen. This is common practice for insurance companies or claims management companies. But if claiming compensation is important to you, why leave this crucial decision to others? The quality of your solicitors can make a huge difference to the success of your claim, as well as how smoothly it proceeds.
Truth Legal can take over the handling of your claim if you are unhappy with the service or quality of your current legal representatives. Switching solicitors to Truth Legal is a straightforward process.
However, if your claim has already been settled, it cannot be re-opened. If you feel that your legal representatives did not deal with your case properly, you may be able to bring a claim against them for professional negligence.
In general, legal time limits mean that you only have 3 years from the date of the accident in which to make your personal injury claim. If you do not settle your claim or start court proceedings within that time, you will usually no longer be able to claim compensation for your accident.
Some exceptions may apply to these general rules but it is always recommended that you start your claim as soon as possible.
If you have been involved in a scooter accident and wish to know more about these time limits, contact us right away to discuss your situation.
Accidents can cause many other losses besides your injuries. Riding your scooter may have been a passion for you before the accident but this enjoyment has been affected, whether physically or psychologically, your compensation claim should reflect this.
Other losses could include damage to your scooter itself, your clothing, helmet, and other damaged items.
In general, you can include losses in your claim which have been caused by the accident or as a consequence of your injuries. Common losses include:
It is also possible to claim for losses which you are likely to incur in the future. For example, future care needs or treatment which will be required.
Truth Legal tries to help people wherever possible by acting on a No Win, No Fee basis. For accidents which were not your fault, we can usually offer a No Win No Fee Agreement.
In the vast majority of situations, a No Win No Fee Agreement means you will not have to pay our fees if we do not succeed in securing compensation for you. Upon a successful outcome, often some of our fees are paid by a portion of your compensation award. This is the normal way in which No Win No Fee agreements operate. It is also usual for most of our fees to be paid by the other party or their insurers.
How a claim is funded is always explained in more detail before a claim begins. You can find more information on No Win No Fee Agreements here.
We have also partnered with CrowdJustice, a leading crowdfunding platform specifically designed to help clients get access to funding for their case. Find out more about Crowdfunding for legal cases.
You may have heard about changes to the law involving whiplash claims and road traffic accidents. These changes alter the process by which certain personal injury claims are made, imposing lower injury compensation awards, and preventing affected claimants from instructing solicitors to help them.
However, if you were injured whilst riding a scooter, your claim will not be affected by these changes fortunately. This means that, even if you have suffered whiplash-type injuries, you can instruct Truth Legal to help you in your personal injury claim
There are several steps to establishing your personal injury claim. By law, you must prove:
Successfully establishing your scooter claim can be challenging, although much depends on whether the party from whom you are claiming seeks to dispute any parts of your case. With experienced specialist solicitors acting for you, however, the chances of securing the right compensation are much greater.
