How do I claim compensation in the UK?

No matter what you are used to, the compensation laws in the UK can seem hopelessly complicated. Even solicitors can struggle with them, so it is important to have a representative with the right training and experience. Fortunately, Accident Advice Helpline has a friendly team ready to help. We can assist you with how to claim compensation in the UK without any headaches.

UK law is structured so that anybody who suffers an accident that is someone else’s fault can access the compensation system. It does not matter if you are a citizen or if you have come from overseas; as long as there is proof of how your accident happened, you received medical attention and it was less than three years ago, you can get help. If you think your case is borderline, it is still worth investigating – you may be pleasantly surprised.

Where to start

There are two ways you can begin a compensation claim with the help of Accident Advice Helpline. Firstly, you can fill out our online compensation claim form. It is easy to understand and will be processed as soon as you submit it. Secondly, you can telephone our 24-hour helpline. We have specially trained advisors standing by to take your call. They can answer your questions and help you to understand your options.

Starting a claim with Accident Advice Helpline will not cost you a penny. In fact, if we do not win your case we will not ask for any money at all. If we do win, we will usually take our payment from the losing side. This means that you do not need to be rich to get access to justice.

Help from a solicitor

If you decide to claim compensation in the UK, you will need a solicitor. Accident Advice Helpline can find you one with the right expertise to handle your case. This means you will not need to spend ages searching through the phone book or waiting in queues, and you will not need to settle for somebody who does not fully understand the kind of case you need to bring. We can make sure you have representation that is at least as good as that of the person or organisation you are challenging.

Once you have a solicitor, they will help you work out the best way to approach your case. They will do the paperwork and deal with any complicated legal matters. You will be able to talk to them over the telephone and will not need to keep going to meetings. Often we are able to arrange things so that you do not even need to go to court.

Depending on the type of case you are bringing, you may need an independent medical assessment. If this is needed, your solicitor will arrange it for you. It will be straightforward and you do not need to worry about it.

Winning your case

Our ‘no win, no fee’* payment system guarantees our commitment to winning your case. If it is successful, we will do what we can to make sure you get your money quickly. We will keep things simple and keep you just as informed as you want to be. That is why we have many satisfied customers who say working with us is the best way to claim compensation in the UK.
