    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    How easy is it for an injured person to claim for compensation?

    Can everybody access the online sites available to help them make an injury claim? It largely depends on the information resources available to them.

    Digital Divide

    For anybody with access to the internet, there is plenty of advice online and a search will throw up pages and pages of specialist sites giving advice and setting out the procedure for an injury claim. Believe it or not, there is still a significant percentage of the UK population without easy access to the internet, their last resort being the libraries, themselves under threat from austerity measures. 10 million citizens of the UK, mostly those in the lowest socio-economic group, or the elderly, are deprived by not having access to the internet. Because of this they miss out on essential information, including financial information and offers which could help them make their money go further.

    Moving to the Cloud

    Traditional sources of consumer and citizen help have moved online. Organisations such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, Age UK, SAGA and local authority advice services have moved increasingly online. However, it is still possible to seek information the old way, by personal visit – if your injury permits it – or by telephone.

    How you can help

    If you have access to the internet and you know somebody who doesn’t but who needs to make an injury claim, perhaps you could help them out, either by sitting with them and taking them through a good compensation provider website, or by accompanying them to the local library and doing it with them there.

    Compensation Provider

    Accident Advice Helpline is a good place to start. We can help the claimant assess whether his injury claim is eligible and what it might be worth. Should he decide to start a claim, Accident Advice Helpline will recommend the right legal expert in his area and kick the process off.

    Crossing the internet highway

    So, for your good deed for the day, after you’ve helped the old lady across the road, perhaps you could kindly help her onto the internet highway too.
