If you need prompt, reliable electric shock accident advice, Accident Advice Helpline can help. Our team of highly trained advisers is available round the clock to assist people like you. They’ll listen to your story and will usually be able to tell you right away if it’s possible for you to make a compensation claim. In some cases they will also be able to tell you the sort of money you might be looking at if your claim is successful.
All the advice we give is free and it doesn’t mean you have to get our help to make a claim. If you think you would like us to help you, we can talk you through the service we offer, but it’s fine if you need to take some time to think about it. We understand that after suffering a shock you may already have a lot on your mind.
The rules of claiming
It is normally only possible to claim compensation for an accident that took place within the last three years. In order to claim for an electric shock accident, you will need to have been treated by a doctor who can confirm your injuries. Sometimes you might have to see a second doctor so a court can determine how much compensation you should receive, but there is no need to worry about this and we can advise you if you want us to.
You will only be able to claim if somebody else is responsible for your accident, but this actually applies in a lot of cases of electrocution, even if people don’t realise it. If you’re not sure about your own case, just give us a call on 0800 689 0500.
Although it is legally possible for you to represent yourself in court, in order to stand a realistic chance of claiming successfully you will need to have a good solicitor. We can find you a suitably qualified expert who has dealt with electric shock claims in the past and understands the issues. We’ll arrange things to minimise any travel on your part and you won’t have to deal with lots of paperwork. Although you’ll always be consulted before decisions are made, it’s up to you how closely you want to be involved in the case. We know that a lot of people who have been hurt in accidents find it easier to recover if they don’t have to think about it all the time.
If you ask us to introduce you to a solicitor, we’ll fix things up on a no win, no fee basis so that you don’t need any money up front. If your case is lost, you won’t have to pay at all. If it’s won, you’ll still be able to keep all or most of your compensation.
The best part of the process for us here at Accident Advice Helpline is when we hear that our clients have received the compensation they deserve. We work with plenty of traumatised people and we know that a win, although it won’t fix everything, can make life a lot better.
