Damages & Compensation

Our goal at Hello Counsel is to obtain the maximum amount of claims & compensation for you in the shortest possible time. While we take up the case of our clients and get on with the legal process, we encourage them to get on with their lives. 

Claims and amount of compensation vary from case to case and person to person, depending squarely on the nature of injury one sustained and the consequent loss he/ she has sustained. The injury could be physical mental and/ or financial. 

One is entitled for compensation against an Airline if he/ she had to incur unforeseen expenses due to the cancellation, rebooking or delay of a flight. Similarly a motor accident victim’s entitlement emanates from several factors like how much he/she had to pay on medical bills, loss of his/ her limb and job etc.  

All it takes to get your claim started is just a phone call/email to us at Hello Counsel.Once you called or written to us, our legal team will take care of the rest. Our lawyer will talk you through the process of making claims for compensation, calculation & amount of compensation, at which forum your case will need to be filed, and what documents they will need from your end, etc.
