We hear questions such as “Can I claim for an injury at court?” almost every day. You may think that a courthouse is one of the safest environments you could expect to visit or work in, but as we all know accidents can and do happen anywhere. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we take thousands of calls every year from people just like you who have been injured in accidents that were not their fault.
We are here to do our utmost to ensure that you receive the best possible legal advice and the maximum amount of financial compensation. Our team of lawyers understand how stressful it can be if you have to take sick leave. You need time to recover from your injuries, yet you have to deal with the financial issues caused by being unable to work, perhaps for several months. Even worse, if your physical injuries are serious or you have to seek treatment for psychological damage, the consequences can be life changing.
Expert legal advice for all
Accident Advice Helpline were established in 2000 and our team of solicitors specialise solely in the field of personal injury law. Our staff are qualified to answer any questions you have regarding claims and will let you know if you have sufficient grounds to file a claim. We operate on a no win no fee* basis, so there are no upfront fees to pay and if your claim loses, you won’t need to pay your solicitor’s fees. In addition, you are under no obligation to appoint us to take on your claim.
Is there a time limit for making a claim?
In the majority of cases, your claim must be filed within three years. There are minor exceptions to this rule, which your solicitor will explain if any apply in your particular case.
The next important point to be aware of is that you must be able to prove that your injuries were sustained due to the actions of a third party. You must also identify the company or individual to blame — provide your solicitor with their name and contact details.
Evidence provided by witnesses, whose contact details are required, will strengthen your case, as will photographs of the scene of the incident. One piece of vital evidence is a medical report signed by the doctor or other medical professional, along with any additional documentation regarding follow-up treatment you have received. With this in mind, it is essential that you visit either an emergency department or your family doctor.
