Claiming Compensation When You’ve Been Involved in an HGV Accident

Department for Transport figures for 2012 show there were 4,261 accidents involving HGVs in that year. Of these, 292 involved fatalities. Fatalities in HGV accidents are to be expected when you take the size, weight and speed of the vehicle involved, compared to an average family car. If you’re in a standard family car and you are involved in a collision with an HGV, it’s likely that you are going to come off the worse of the two.

There are lots of ways an accident with an HGV can occur, for example, maybe the lorry has a load that’s not secured correctly. This could fall onto your car, damaging it, or fall into the road, creating the need for you swerve out of its path. Or maybe the HGV driver is suffering from fatigue, as they often do on long journeys, and has nodded off at the wheel. This has, in the past, been the cause of some horrendous accidents.

Whatever the reason, Asons can help you claim for compensation if you’re not at fault. Our team of expert road traffic accident solicitors are here to help, so why not contact us for an informal, no obligation chat?

It’s Your Right to Claim

Compensation claims are not personal law suits against an individual. All those who drive or ride are bound by law to have valid insurance to do so. It’s this insurance that you make a claim against. So, never feel unsure about making a claim – it is perfectly permissable and acceptable.

Claiming Compensation if You Can’t Work Because of an HGV Accident

Not being able to work, because of an injury you’ve sustained in an HGV accident that was not your fault, may leave you in financial difficulty. This is not acceptable and there is the possibility of interim payments to protect you from this situation. Asons can make an application for those interim monies so that you can settle your everyday bills. This can be a real life-saver while you’re waiting for your compensation to be paid.

The easiest way to find out if you can make a claim for compensation is to contact Asons Solicitors for a free and confidential enquiry.

Our HGV Accident Compensation Claim Experience

When you’re faced with making a claim for HGV accident compensation, you want to know that you have the best people on your side. Asons can be your legal support team.

At Asons, we explain everything to you in clear, plain language, using as few pieces of legal jargon as possible. We believe in being direct about any fees for our professional services – there are no hidden costs, and therefore no unpleasant surprises.

Time Limitations

You have a limit of three years from the date of the HGV accident to make a claim for compensation. This is because of the ‘statute of limitations’ that’s applied to these kinds of cases. Once three years has elapsed you cannot open up a claim. So, if you are browsing this website with a view to making a claim, make haste.

At Asons we provide our legal services on a ‘no win, no fee’ system. You, the client, pay nothing at all until we win your case and receive the settlement from the opposition.

Asons won’t allow you to fall into financial difficulty while your claim progresses. If that looks as though it might happen, ask your case handler about interim payments.
