    "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 do personal injury claims work?


    Did you know that anybody who has been injured in an accident caused by somebody else could potentially be eligible to claim personal injury compensation? Personal injury claims work on a case-by-case basis – that is, every claim is totally unique and Accident Advice Helpline processes each and every claim individually. This means that what one person receives as a settlement can differ vastly from what somebody else may receive, even if they have sustained similar injuries. If you’re considering making a personal injury claim, you really need to seek advice from an expert personal injury lawyer who specialises in personal injury law.

    How do personal injury claims work?

    If you have been injured and somebody else’s negligence was to blame, you could claim personal injury compensation within three years of your accident. In most cases, you won’t even have to go to court to get the compensation you are entitled to.

    What are the eligibility criteria for personal injury claims?

    If you’re wondering how personal injury claims work, then keep reading. There are a few criteria you must meet in order to be eligible to make a claim. If you can say ‘yes’ to the following questions, then there’s a good chance we’ll be able to help you make a claim:

    • Did your accident happen in the last three years?
    • Did you seek medical attention for your injuries?
    • Was somebody else to blame for your accident?

    You can make a personal injury claim for almost any type of accident, from workplace accidents to car accidents and even accidents in public places – like a slip or trip in a supermarket. If you’re in any doubt about your eligibility, just get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline and we’ll be able to set you straight.

    Can you claim compensation for minor injuries?

    Don’t be one of the many people who miss out on making a claim every year because they don’t think their injuries are serious enough. Minor injuries such as concussion, whiplash and broken bones could still mean you are eligible to make a claim if somebody else was responsible for your accident. We handle many more claims for minor injuries than for life-changing injuries, and although your settlement may be smaller, you could still be compensated for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
