    Claiming compensation with the help of an accident solicitor in Berhampstead

    Accident victims qualify for personal injury claims, if:

    • their accident was caused by somebody else’s negligence
    • their accident happened within the last 3 years

    If you had an accident in the Berhamstead area and are seeking the services of a no win no fee* accident solicitor locally, you may experience problems finding a law firm to take on your claim, if it is not a straightforward case, where the other party is likely to accept liability without the intervention of a judge.

    Where do you find an accident solicitor in Berhamstead willing to take on your case?

    Simply call Accident Advice Helpline free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 and speak to a friendly advisor! If you qualify for making an injury case, they will be able to allocate a specialist solicitor to you. That may not necessarily be a legal partner based locally, but it will be someone best suited to your particular claim. Lines are available around the clock, every day of the week.

    For more than a decade this compensation provider has helped thousands of non-fault accident victims to gain access to justice and compensation. All their legal partners work on a no win no fee* basis, which means claimants won’t be asked to pay any money upfront when they start their claim nor will they be forced to pay legal fees during their claims process.

    Providing the best possible legal representation on a no win no fee* basis, Accident Advice Helpline’s legal partners deal with most claimants’ cases over the phone, which speeds up the process, making it fast and efficient. They handle all the paperwork, so you won’t be asked to fill out any forms.

    Open Claim Calculator

    To find out if you qualify, visit Accident Advice Helpline’s website and complete a simple 30-second test. Their online compensation calculator will give you an estimate how much compensation you might get, if your claim is successful.

    Calculating compensation

    Not all non-fault accidents are strictly speaking entirely non-fault. Sometimes a small proportion of blame will be assigned to the accident victim themselves. In that case, compensation is calculated according to the proportion of blame each party carries.

    Most cases, however, are straightforward and as soon as the defendant or other party accepts liability, your accident solicitor in Berhampstead can forward an offer-to-settle letter outlining what you expect to be paid. The amount will include compensation for your pain and suffering, but also payment for any loss of income you had while recovering from your injuries. Expenses you paid will also be included for reimbursement.

    For example:

    • for private medical treatment and medicines
    • for travel to and from hospital
    • for car hire fees while your own car was off the road and you could not use it after your road traffic accident
    • for adapting your home with ramps and secure handrails while you were trying to regain mobility and had to use a walking aid
    • for hiring a home help to assist with shopping, cleaning and cooking

    If the other party accepts the sum, you can settle out of court and should get paid compensation fairly quickly. If the defendant declines, your accident solicitor in Berhampstead may advise you to challenge the defendant at court.
