Our team at Accident Advice Helpline have been working with people from all over the country for 14 years helping them access the help and support they need to make a personal injury claim.

An accident in Hillingdon
Let’s say you’ve been in a road traffic accident in Hillingdon. The car in which you were travelling was hit by another vehicle which did not stop at the traffic lights. You have suffered whiplash and concussion, and are still having problems with ringing in your ears.
This is typical of the kind of accident in Hillingdon that can happen everyday. The roads are full of drivers and not all of them pay due care and attention at all times. So, if their carelessness causes an injury to you, then we think it’s only fair that they pay to put things right.
What you’re entitled to
By law all drivers are required to carry third party motor insurance. This covers them for any injuries they inflict on other road users and it will be this you will be claiming against.
Since the driver failed to stop at a red light we’re going to assume that this is quite a straightforward case in terms of blame, so we’re going to concentrate more on how compensation is calculated.
If you’ve been in an accident in Hillingdon we can provide an estimate to your likely compensation through our free online 30 second test. As its name implies this is a test which tells you very quickly whether or not you’re entitled to claim compensation and how much it will be. This is only a rough guide, and not a guarantee, but it does give you something to set your expectations against.
Compensation is calculated by looking at all the medical implications of your injuries. Therefore, as part of our initial assessment we may schedule a medical examination to give us a better idea about what kind of injuries you have sustained. This will give us a fuller picture of how much compensation we should try to claim for.
Making a claim
Because this is an accident in Hillingdon we’ll try to build a legal team based in the local area, but of far greater importance, in our opinion are the actual skills and experience of the lawyers you choose for your case.

We can do that and in addition we can also help you find lawyers who will work on the basis of no win no fee.
