Although it is possible to manage your own compensation claim following an accident that was not your fault, you can increase your chances of success by enlisting the services of professional law firms such as Accident Advice Helpline .
Should you use accident management companies in the UK?
We would advise you to use the services of a personal injury law firm to handle your claim. Accident Advice Helpline will handle your claim from start to finish. We won’t outsource the legal work to accident management companies in the UK. We like to ensure our high standards and success rate is protected. We do this by offering a full legal service to all our clients.
Your personal injury compensation claim needs to be made within three years of the date of your accident. In practice, you need to start taking action sooner than the three-year deadline because there will be some preparatory work to do before you can start your compensation claim. In fact, you should start your claim as soon as possible because otherwise there is a chance that your witnesses’ memories will start to fade.
This means that you may need to work on your compensation claim while you are still injured. Using Accident Advice Helpline rather than accident management companies in the UK can reduce the stress you are under at this tricky time.
In addition, because we are experts at dealing with personal injury compensation claims, we understand the process. This means that your claim will not fail because you made a mistake on a legal technicality, or because you did not understand what was being asked of you. You may risk errors by using accident management companies in the UK.
Do you have a valid claim?
You can find out whether you have a valid claim by taking our unique 30-second online test at Accident Advice Helpline’s website. Alternatively, you can talk to our friendly and professional staff.
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you should speak to Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible to avoid the risk of your claim being time barred by the three-year limit mentioned above.
We will gather together all of the information relating to the accident, including witness statements where appropriate, and then present your compensation claim to the person who was responsible for the accident.
You may need to attend a medical assessment to determine the extent of your injuries. However, you will not usually need to attend any meetings because most claims can be dealt with by phone. Most people are not required to attend court.
