    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Accident compensation advice


    If you have had an accident at work, been involved in a car crash or had a fall in public, your injuries may be causing you significant problems. You may have been put out of pocket whilst you pay out for prescriptions, a new car bumper, or have lost earnings after being signed off work while you recover.

    The first step after suffering a personal injury is to find a reputable source for accident compensation advice, often beginning with an eligibility check to make sure you are entitled to claim. Eligibility usually depends on the accident being someone else’s fault, and for it to have happened in the past three years – although this deadline can be extended in cases where the victim was a minor or in the case of industrial diseases.

    Where can you find good accident compensation advice?

    Good accident compensation advice can usually be found online, through a reputable company such as Accident Advice Helpline. It is recommended that any company who gives advice and processes claims is actually a law firm with a dedicated staff of professional lawyers, rather than simply “claims handlers”.

    What accident compensation advice are you likely to receive?

    Cases for claiming compensation following an accident or personal injury that was not your fault can vary greatly as circumstances differ from person to person. Therefore, there is no set accident compensation advice, although you may be advised to:

    • Keep any receipts for expenses incurred as a result of the accident
    • Be mindful that claim times vary from case to case
    • Bear in mind that any idea of compensation amounts you have received are an estimation only, and cannot be guaranteed

    How is a typical claim progressed?

    In a typical claims case, you will firstly speak with a trained advisor and this will then be progressed according to your situation. You may be required to attend an additional medical assessment, although most claimants do not need to attend court.
