At Accident Advice Helpline, we offer property surveyor accident advice free of charge and with no obligation to claim. Our lines are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and our highly trained advisors will always listen sympathetically to your story. We’ll do our best to answer the big questions straight away. Although we can never guarantee that a claim will be successful, we can tell you if it’s possible for you to make a claim and we can often tell you how much money you could get if you win.
We realise that you may be feeling quite shaken in the aftermath of an accident and need some time to decide whether claiming is right for you. Because of this, we’ll never pressure you; we just give you the tools to help you make a good decision. You do, however, need to be aware that there is a legal limit of three years on making most types of claim. Exceptions to this are rare and mostly relate to cases of illness whose symptoms don’t become apparent until after the time limit. If you think this might apply to you, give us a call and we can look into it on your behalf.
Getting legal help
Property surveyor accident claims can mostly be divided into two types. The first type involves claims made against employers, for instance when an accident has occurred due to poor office maintenance or because important information about the condition of a property has not been passed on. The second involves claims against property owners who have failed to disclose known hazards in a particular building or have created avoidable hazards, for instance by poorly stacking boxes so that they’ve fallen and caused injury.
The type of case you want to bring will affect your optimum choice of solicitor, but at Accident Advice Helpline we can help you to work it out. We can also appoint an appropriate solicitor if you want us to, usually within just a few days. We work on a no win, no fee* basis, so you can have peace of mind when deciding to make that claim you deserve.
Why claim compensation?
A compensation payout can cover far more than just the damages you get to help make up for your suffering. It can also cover costs associated with the case (provided you give your solicitor your receipts) and lost earnings if you were unable to work for a while. If you are left with problems that will make it difficult for you to work in the long term, compensation can help you to retrain and can ensure that you have a reasonable standard of living no matter what. It can also cover things such as the cost of adapting your home so that you can retain as much independence as possible. Although it won’t always solve everything, it can really help.
