    "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."

    Esther Rantzen

    Accident Lawyer in South Oxfordshire

    Are you looking for an accident lawyer in South Oxfordshire? If so, there are some things that you need to know.

    Are you eligible to claim?

    Not everyone who has an accident can make a claim. To proceed, you have to fulfil these criteria:

    • The accident was not your fault
    • The accident led to injury

    You can check your eligibility by going to Accident Advice Helpline’s website and taking the 30 second test – or just call us, and an advisor will tell you.

    You will need an additional medical test

    When you have an accident, you’ll probably have to go to your GP to get checked out. You might, if your injuries are severe, have to go to A&E for immediate treatment.

    You’ve probably had enough of doctors, nurses and hospitals, but you won’t be able to proceed with your claim unless you go for another medical assessment – so we will arrange for you to have one. We understand that it may be stressful for you, but we aim to keep hassle to a minimum for you wherever possible.

    You have just three years

    You shouldn’t delay in getting in touch with an accident lawyer in South Oxfordshire, because there’s a deadline to claim: three years from the date of your accident. Leave it any longer, and you’re out of luck.

    There are exceptions to this:

    • Industrial disease cases
    • Cases in which the claimant was a minor at the time of the accident

    If these apply, the limit is extended. But it always makes sense to start sooner rather than later, doesn’t it?

    You’re not guaranteed to win

    You may be eligible to go ahead with a claim, and your accident lawyer in South Oxfordshire will fight on your behalf to get you the best possible result – but that doesn’t mean that your claim will be successful.

    If a settlement is not reached, at least you can take comfort from the fact that all the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.

    Your payout consists of two things

    If you do receive a payment of compensation, it will be made up of:

    • An element for pain, suffering and loss of amenity
    • An element for the reimbursement of expenses related to your accident

    This is why it’s advisable to keep a file containing everything that relates to your claim. Put your receipts for taxi fares, childminders’ fees, home help fees and anything else relevant in here, along with records of your medical treatment and photographic evidence of the scene of the accident.
