    Local authority injury advice


    If an accident has occurred and the responsibility lies with the local authority, you might be feeling a little anxious about making a claim against an institution as large as a local council. To delve into your position further, you might want to find and receive the best local authority injury advice possible. There are so many instances in which you can find yourself the victim of an accident where the local authority is liable. These may include slipping or tripping on local authority land, pupils and visitors at school premises falling or collisions with local authority transport to name but a few.

    Local authorities have stringent policies and procedures in place in order to minimise the risk of accident or injury, but it is never possible to eliminate the chance of an accident occurring entirely. If you are the victim of an accident where the liability falls with the local authority, Accident Advice Helpline can assist in advising and guiding you through the whole financial compensation claims process with professionalism and ease having established itself as the country’s market leader in compensation claims.

    Working to ensure people were suitably recompensed for accidents that were not their fault for over 14 years, Accident Advice Helpline is the ideal law firm to contact if you feel that you have a case for a claim. Providing professional local authority injury advice is just one of the many areas of financial compensation claims that our in-house legal experts excel in.

    Our legal team understands the difficulties and devastation that suffering an injury can inflict on a person’s ability to live life normally – with issues such as work, leisure activities, general chores and many other aspects of daily living that are affected. There is also the psychological effect of an injury to contend with, and this can sometimes be even more debilitating – particularly adding to the stress and anxiety that the loss of income can introduce.

    To investigate your grounds for making a claim against a local authority, Accident Advice Helpline has a free, 24-hour helpline that allows you to call at a time most suitable to you to discuss the background of your claim. The claims representative will initially take as much detail as you are able to provide regarding the accident and the impact it has had on your life thereafter.

    If your accident is considered the responsibility of the local authority, your case will be transferred to one of our in-house solicitors who will compile more evidence, such as medical correspondence and photographs of injuries. They will then guide you through the claims process. If you case is taken on, then it will be on a no win, no fee** basis. Unlike many other companies, there are no upfront fees to pay, so there is no financial risk attached to your case at any time. Call 0800 689 0500 now to explore you claim.
