The law requires road users involved in accidents on the road to remain at the scene until police and/or medical assistance arrives. Unfortunately, not all drivers comply with this law. More often than not, drivers leaving the scene of an accident were under the influence of alcohol, not insured or in a vehicle that did not belong to them at the time of the incident.
Drivers and passengers injured by car accidents involving untraced or uninsured drivers often refrain from claiming for personal injury compensation because they believe nothing can be done if the details of the offending driver are not available. This, however, is not correct. Injured individuals can still claim for driver or passenger compensation even if the driver/road user responsible for the accident did not stop at the scene.
Accident Advice Helpline specialises in uninsured and untraced driver claims. Victims of traffic-related accidents where the responsible party left the scene can contact this long-established law firm 24/7 via a free phone helpline. Details provided during calls are kept strictly confidential, and claimants are not put under any obligation to commit to pursuing a claim at any point.
About Accident Advice Helpline
Established many years ago, Accident Advice Helpline is highly respected and recommended by the company’s patron, well-known consumer champion Esther Rantzen. The company’s legal team consists of lawyers specialising in varying types of accidental injury compensation claims, including driver and passenger injury claims; sports or work injury claims and public liability claims. Each case is assigned to a solicitor with the most suitable, most extensive experience in the particular claim category possible.
What to expect
Claiming for compensation with the help of Accident Advice Helpline means most processes will be dealt with through telephone conversations. Quick and efficient, the firm’s legal team is often able to avoid claimants having to wait for and attend long, drawn out court proceedings. As every case is different from the next, this can, however, not be taken for granted. In a similar fashion, it is not possible for the lawyer assigned to a case providing more than a rough estimate on how much compensation a claimant will ultimately receive, or how long it will take for a case to be settled.
No win no fee**
The one certain thing about claiming with this company’s help is that conditional fee agreements mean claimants have to pay nothing until the claim is successfully completed.
