    "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."

    Is it easy to make accident claims in the UK?


    Every day, there are individuals who begin the process of making accident claims in the UK. Sometimes, no one is responsible for an accident. For example, if you are walking through the woods in cold weather and you slip on some ice, it wouldn’t be anyone’s fault; it’s just one of those things. However, some accidents are the result of negligence on the part of someone else, and if you’re not to blame and you know someone else is, you might have good cause to press on with a claim.

    Even if you know you have a strong argument to put forward to make a claim, it can still be understandable to feel hesitant about doing so. For example, you might be worried about the complexity of claiming, and about the length of time it might take. Most people feel nervous of going ahead with a claim, so you are not alone in this respect.

    How do you make accident claims in the UK?

    This is not something you would be expected to do alone. Indeed, with many personal injury lawyers on hand to help, all you should do is to contact someone with extensive experience in this area of the law.

    It is much easier to proceed with a claim when you have an expert working on your behalf. In addition, our claims are handled on a no-win, no-fee* basis. This means you will not pay anything in solicitors’ fees if your case should fail. Your solicitor can tell you more about this before you agree to progress with your claim.
