Can I claim if I live in Wales?

We are happy to confirm that the answer to the question, “Can I claim if I live in Wales?” is most definitely, “yes”.  At Accident Advice Helpline we take on clients who live throughout the UK.

Although we only have one helpline number we have solicitors based in all parts of the country, so we will not be looking at your situation from an outsider’s perspective. If you decide to take advantage of our services we will work with you to understand your situation and provide the highest level of support.

Where to begin

When you have been involved in an accident, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. You have enough to cope with simply getting your life back together without having complicated legal issues to worry about. We at Accident Advice Helpline are here to help and our lines are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

All you have to do is give us a call when you are ready and we will take it from there. Our staff are very friendly and will never put you under pressure or dismiss your enquiry as trivial.

All calls to our helpline are free of charge, even if you decide you not to proceed with a claim. If you do, we will put you in touch with an experienced solicitor who specialises in this particular area of the law. Remember, this means it will not cost you anything to start your claim, because we believe justice should be available to everyone.

Under standard compensation rules you must instigate your claim within three years of your accident. However, the sooner you act the better your chances of success. To improve your chances of success you should have seen a doctor about your injuries; it would also be helpful if you have photographs of them.

What happens next?

If you decide to employ our services we will match you up with a solicitor who specialises in the type of accident you have been involved in. In most cases we will be able to find you a Welsh-based legal professional, but in some cases we will suggest an English one in order to ensure you receive the appropriate advice and level of expertise.

Because accident law is basically the same in Wales as it is in England, this will in no way place you at a disadvantage. You can be confident that we will always do our best for you; after all, it is in both our interests that your claim is successful.

We realise that travel can be difficult in some parts of Wales, especially during winter. For this reason, we do not expect you to make numerous journeys to meet with your solicitor. Most cases can be managed over the phone, with documents being sent by courier if necessary.

If you require an independent medical examination we will do our best to arrange one locally. In some cases, we are able to secure payouts without our clients even having to appear in court.

We will do our best to ensure that, if you live in Wales, you are able to claim compensation just as easily as you could anywhere else in the UK.
