    How to handle your own personal injury claim?


    If you have been injured in an accident at work then you’ll know it’s no laughing matter. Even minor injuries could mean taking time off, which can affect your finances. More serious injuries could impact your ability to do your job – and what if you think somebody else was to blame for your accident?

    How to handle your own personal injury claim?

    If you’re serious about claiming personal injury compensation then your first port of call after your accident should be a personal injury lawyer offering a no-win, no-fee* service. There’s no need to handle your own personal injury claim and we don’t recommend doing so.

    Why can’t you handle things yourself?

    When you think about it, even if you are claiming compensation for relatively minor injuries such as a sprained ankle or a back injury, you are ultimately taking legal action against your employer. By hiring the services of a specialist personal injury lawyer, you’re improving the chances of your claim being successful and also ensuring you have the support you need, should your claim end up in court. The good news is that most claims never end up in court and are settled in full over the phone. But if you do need to go to court, you’ll want to be represented and supported by the very best personal injury lawyers you can find.

    Why choose a specialist lawyer?

    It’s important to choose a specialist personal injury lawyer too, rather than trying to handle your claim yourself or hiring a lawyer without experience in personal injury law. A specialist lawyer will have years of experience in the industry and will have helped members of the public claim compensation for a variety of different types of accidents and injuries. This means they’re best placed to help you and can offer you the advice you need. You’re also more likely to find specialist personal injury lawyers offering a no-win, no-fee* service. Accident Advice Helpline’s team of lawyers operates on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis, so there are no upfront fees to worry about and anybody can afford to make a claim.

    How your injuries affect your settlement

    The severity of your injuries has a huge impact on how much compensation you could get. For example, you’re likely to receive more compensation for a brain injury than you are for a sprained ankle. A brain injury will have more of an impact on your life and you could even be left unable to return to work or look after yourself, whilst you’ll normally fully recover from a sprained ankle in a matter of weeks. This isn’t to say that you can’t make a claim for more minor injuries, just that you should expect a less substantial settlement. Why not take the 30-second test on our website for an idea of what you could receive, then call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile. We’re here to offer confidential, no-obligation advice to anyone who calls.
