If you have been a victim of an accident that was not your fault and are therefore likely to be entitled to compensation, it is important that you choose the right representation to look after your best interests and increase the chance of a successful claim. Making the right decision regarding which company to instruct to act on your behalf is half the battle in making a successful compensation claim. Below are answers to the question ‘what are the benefits of choosing to claim through Accident Advice Helpline over a local firm?’
24/7 access to free expert advice
One of the main benefits of choosing to claim through Accident Advice Helpline over a local firm is that we are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so you never have to wait to discuss your situation and start the ball rolling. It is widely recognised that one of the most important parts of a successful claim is reporting the incident as soon as possible. Local firms will only be open during normal office hours, while accidents happen at any time of the day or night. The Accident Advice Helpline is always available.
A local firm is likely to be limited regarding the number of solicitors it employs and it will simply not be possible for them to specialise in every aspect of the law. In contrast, we at the Accident Advice Helpline have a wide range of specialist solicitors covering all areas of the law as it relates to compensation claims. Each of our Accident Advice Helpline solicitors uniquely focuses on their particular area of expertise, ensuring that you receive the best possible advice from an experienced professional in that field.
No win, no fee* and no upfront costs
A local firm will be much more focused on covering their costs before acting as representation for a compensation claim. You may find that you have to pay upfront costs, along with additional fees, even if your claim is unsuccessful. At the Accident Advice Helpline we are committed to our no win, no fee* policy and do not charge upfront costs. In fact, it is rare that any of our clients have to pay a penny for our services. In the vast majority of cases, our costs are recovered from the third party. In addition, Accident Advice Helpline is fully regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and therefore must adhere to strict regulations regarding our conduct and promises regarding payments.
The reputation of Accident Advice Helpline is built on our high customer satisfaction and is even endorsed by consumer champion, Esther Rantzen, who has evaluated the way we operate and highly recommends us. Our client feedback and endorsements will provide the reassurance you need to make you feel comfortable that you will have access to experts in the field, who are completely committed to bringing justice to victims of non-fault accidents. You may be exposed to more risk by using a local firm, which may not be able to provide a similar level of customer satisfaction feedback.
