When they need help with personal injury claims in West Sussex, many people turn to Accident Advice Helpline. As one of the foremost compensation claim lawyers here in the UK, people know that we have comprehensive knowledge about accidents and personal injuries, and it’s that expertise they want to be able to draw on.
Personal injury claim law changed significantly back in the year 2000. Up until then, anyone wanting to claim personal injury compensation had the right to apply for free legal aid. But legal aid was withdrawn as far as personal injury claim law was concerned, and in its place, the system of no win no fee* came into being; in actual fact Accident Advice Helpline were one of the very first compensation claim solicitors to offer a no win no fee* service.
The no win no fee*, conditional fee agreement
No win no fee* is what is known as a condition fee agreement. It basically assures the claimant that if, say for example, a number of claims in West Sussex should prove unsuccessful (for whatever reason), the claimants would not be expected to pay their solicitor’s legal fees. Most, but not all solicitors who handle compensation claims, offer no win no fee* arrangements.
Personal injury claims in West Sussex
The personal injury claims in West Sussex that we handle here at Accident Advice Helpline cover a multitude of different types of accidents and injuries; from RTAs to work related illnesses, and from injuries in the home to injuries sustained while on holiday. They include whiplash injuries, repetitive strain injuries, broken bones and fractures, loss of limbs, loss of eyesight, and many more. But whatever the injury, in order to qualify for compensation, you must have received medical attention for it, and it must have happened in the last 3-years. The other important factor is that someone else must be to blame for the accident/incident that caused the injury.
The different types on injuries command different amounts of compensation. Awards start at around £600 and go as high as £185,000; higher in some instances if permanent life and work style changes and loss of earnings are involved.
Take the Accident Advice Helpline 30-second test
You can get an idea of approximately how much compensation you could be due for your particular injury by taking the 30-second test here on the Accident Advice Helpline website. All it involves is answering four basic questions relating to your injury, and then leaving a note of your name and a contact phone number. The test checks the validity of any claim in principle, and where claims appear valid, provides potential claimants with an estimate of the amount of compensation they could win.
Accident Advice Helpline also provides a free helpline service for those who have any questions or need any assistance. To access this service from any UK-based landline simply call 0800 689 0500. If you don’t have access to a landline, you can use your mobile. In this instance the number to call is 0333 500 0993; just be aware that your call provider will probably charge you for your call.
We always recommend that claimants should launch their claims as soon after the injury was sustained as possible. Why not start the wheels turning by getting in contact with us today?
