Since our formation in the year 2000, our Accident Advice Helpline legal team has helped win thousands of claims for our clients, so contacting us for flooding injury advice is advised.
When we see reports of floods we often think only of damage to the property. What is sometimes forgotten is that during floods human victims often suffer injury. Falling into fast running floodwaters, or placing a foot where a manhole cover has been dislodged can cause severe physical harm. If you have suffered injury during a flood, you should seek flooding injury advice. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have expert solicitors who can provide you with that advice.
How to contact us
By contacting us at Accident Advice Helpline regarding your flooding injury, you will be taking the first steps in establishing whether you are eligible to make a claim. Our helpline is open 24/7 via our 0800 number, or if you prefer, via our mobile phone number. You can also contact us by text message. Your details will be passed on by our friendly and highly trained advisers to one of our expert lawyers who will consider your case.

The information you need to give our legal team
When you contact Accident Advice Helpline for flooding injury advice our lawyers will need to determine whether you have grounds for a claim. In order to do this we will need certain pieces of information, such as your recollection of the event, plus details of those who witnessed it. That’s why you should take the names and contact details of any witnesses to your flooding accident. Based on the information provided we will determine if you have grounds for a claim and the official body the claim should be made against. To launch a claim for compensation after any accident you must not have been responsible for the incident that led to your injury.
You should also see your doctor as their medical report will confirm the extent of your injuries and could go a long way in determining the size of your award.
Why you should seek flooding injury advice
By contacting us for advice you’ll learn if you are entitled to make a flooding injury claim. A successful claim will go a long way to helping you and your family through this difficult period.
Not only will you have endured pain and suffering, you should consider the financial impact on your family. The injury may well have led to time off work as you recovered, resulting in a loss of income. Other expenses relating to your injuries may include prescription charges and travel to and from treatment sessions. If the injuries are particularly serious, you may require therapy and extra care. These costs can be crippling and a successful claim may help cover your expenses.
No win no fee*
The cost of receiving legal help may put you off seeking flooding injury advice. However, at Accident Advice Helpline our lawyers work on a no win, no fee** basis which means you don’t have to pay any money up front, relieving you of fears of additional expense at what is already a difficult time for you and your family.
