You have a few days holiday owing to you, but don’t fancy driving all the way to Bristol to catch a budget flight to Spain, so what could be more relaxing than a short cycling holiday in the Mendip Hills – practically on your doorstep!
Heading from your historic home town Cheddar towards Chewton Mendip, you set out on your trusted modern day steed and have a great time. Nothing untoward happens until your mobile chimes and a friend asks you to join them in Shepton Mallet for a meal and a chat.
You leave your bicycle at your charming guesthouse and wait for the arrival of a hire car, which is promptly delivered by a hire company recommended by your landlord. It’s not a firm you’re familiar with, but the landlord assures you, his guests have never had any problems.
The hire car’s day rate was surprisingly cheap; you distrust its shiny bargain appeal but the minutes are ticking away and your friend is only in town for the day, so you risk it and set off in your hire vehicle, joining the busy A37, where you discover the brakes of your rental car have stopped working! Your cycling holiday ends in hospital.
Let an accident solicitor in Cheddar improve your day!
You could ask your friend in Shepton Mallet to start ringing round local law firms, or you could tell him to dial just one number and speak to Accident Advice Helpline on your behalf to find you an accident solicitor Cheddar or similar specialist.
Unless they offer no win no fee legal services, a local accident solicitor will probably ask you, if you have insurance to pay for making a claim as you may otherwise have to pay legal fees up front and also make a contribution towards the claims process.
Accident Advice Helpline offers no win no fee services, which allows claimants to go ahead with their personal injury claim right away without making an upfront payment for legal fees or a payment during the claims process.
Since Accident Advice Helpline was established in 2000, their legal partners have helped thousands of people just like you to claim compensation and get justice. Negligence that results in injuries like yours is no laughing matter.
A car hire company has a responsibility to check every vehicle for road-worthiness before handing it to a new customer, no matter how little they might pay for the day’s rental.
Call Accident Advice Helpline on their freephone numbers: 0800 689 0500 or: 0333 500 0993 and speak to an adviser to see if you qualify for making a claim.
If you do, the adviser will tell you how much compensation you might get, if your claim is settled successfully with an accident solicitor in Cheddar or other legal partner, if none is available in Cheddar.
