    What are the different ways to claim compensation for an accident?

    Compensation Provider

    These are companies which mostly have an online presence announcing their expertise for people who want to claim compensation for an accident. They are useful gateways, because they can provide the early information for the claimant who isn’t sure either whether his claim is valid, or whether it is worth pursuing. Accident Advice Helpline offers a 30-second online test of eligibility. Once a potential claimant has passed the eligibility test, a little more detail can help provide an estimate of what the claim might be worth. On AAH there is a 24 hour helpline on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993 and their advisors are available to talk through with a client, what the steps are. Another useful feature of these sites is they usually represent a network of lawyers so they can call on the right expertise for the client in question.

    A firm of solicitors or lawyers

    Gone are the days when most people knew their local solicitor by sight or by name, or could easily get a reference from a friend or acquaintance. Luckily most firms of solicitors have an online presence and again, anyone seeking to claim compensation for an accident can find a firm local to them without too much difficulty.

    At work

    Employees of large public sector or private organisations may belong to a trade union or employees association which in some cases may be able to refer the claimant to a solicitor, or at least be able to help with advice.

    Road traffic accidents

    Insurance companies don’t normally offer this kind of legal advice, although motoring organisations such as the AA might do.

    General legal advice

    The Citizens’ Advice Bureau, the local library and some charitable organisations can be useful sources of advice and information, so don’t forget them.
