    DIY accident advice


    If you have been injured in an accident while carrying out a do-it-yourself project, then you would be well advised to seek DIY accident advice.

    Where can I find this advice?

    Usually following an accident people want to know whether or not they can make a claim against the people or body responsible. As making a claim is a legal process, it is advisable to contact a law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we employ personal injury solicitors with the expertise to give you the expert DIY accident advice that you need. We know that injuries caused by an accident that was not your fault can be traumatic and our experienced solicitors will advise you in a sensitive and professional way.

    How to contact us

    We make contacting Accident Advice Helpline as simple as possible. We have a free 24/7 telephone helpline on 0800 689 0500. Alternatively, you can use our online compensation calculator. It takes just 30 seconds to complete and will give an idea of the compensation you could be awarded should you have grounds for a compensation claim and it is successful.

    Why seek advice from us?

    Any claim for compensation following personal injury involves a legal process, which can be baffling. Not everyone will understand its complexities or even have knowledge of the deadlines for making a claim following an accident. By contacting us here at Accident Advice Helpline for DIY accident advice, you will be dealing with our highly professional solicitors who understand the legal complexities and potential pitfalls and will be able to advise you accordingly.

    Will I be able to make a claim?

    When giving you DIY accident advice, our solicitors will try to determine whether you have grounds for a claim. Generally, if you were personally responsible for the accident that caused your injury, such as you failed to follow instructions, or you used tools which you knew were defective, then you will not be eligible to make a claim.

    Open Claim Calculator

    You may be able to make a DIY accident claim if the materials, equipment or tools purchased were faulty and they contributed to the accident in which you were injured. This could include a flat pack purchase, which contained faulty parts or safety equipment such as face masks and goggles, or defective power tools.

    If we find that you do have grounds for a claim, Accident Advice Helpline may be able to represent you. All our solicitors operate on a no win no fee* basis. We will explain what no win no fee* means when you approach us. Generally, it will relieve you of any fears of being faced with a large legal bill should your claim be unsuccessful, and avoid the need for you to find a large amount of money up front.

    By seeking DIY accident advice from Accident Advice Helpline, you will learn about the options that are available to you following your injury and you could be taking the first steps towards receiving compensation. To discuss your potential claim with a member of our expert team dial 0800 689 0500 now.
