A personal injury law firm exists to give individuals a chance to claim compensation following an accident or injury that was not their fault. Whether a fall at work, a trip on a broken pavement or a car crash, you may be entitled to make a claim. Suffering a personal injury can be a very traumatic, stressful experience, not to mention the pain of the physical injuries you may have endured – it’s therefore important that you take the steps to make a claim.
Typically, a personal injury claim company will either have in-house lawyers, or a network of solicitors who will then progress the claim on behalf of the claimant. In many cases, this is offered on a no win, no fee basis.
Where can I find a personal injury claim company?
The vast majority of law firms can be found online, allowing you to browse their websites and digest the wealth of information provided. Some include an eligibility tool such as the Accident Advice Helpline 30 second calculator, so you can check that you are entitled to make a claim. The 30 second calculator will ask a few short questions, and return an approximate compensation amount based on your answers – this is useful information to use before you progress your claim.
Accident Advice Helpline is an advice and compensation provider working with hundreds of solicitors who are expert across a diverse range of accident types. By using our team of in-house lawyers, they are able to match your case to the specialist attention it requires in order to have the best possible chance of winning an amount of compensation that is fair for you.
To set your claim in motion, all you will need to do is call and speak with Accident Advice Helpline’s friendly, professional and highly trained staff who will take the details of your case and pass them over to our expert legal panel. As the claimant, you will likely be able to process your claim via the telephone, and in most cases you will not need to attend court, although you may need to attend a medical assessment to provide supporting evidence.
