Finding an accident solicitor in Ilmington to handle your injury claim
Every year some 3 million people are hurt in accidents that occur in the home, at work, on holiday, in public spaces or on Britain’s roads. While most accidents in the home are either nobody’s fault at all or the person injured must admit to carrying some of the blame, there are incidents for which somebody else’s negligence is responsible for accidents in the home.
Many accidents in the home may have been entirely preventable, but a manufacturer tried to cut corners and didn’t produce goods according to health and safety standards. Faulty products are responsible for a considerable number of accidents in the home. If you or your child were hurt by handling toys that were toxic, or exploded after running on batteries for just a short while, somebody else must pay you compensation.
Cheap imports that collapse under you as you climb on a new “safe” stepladder, contraband toys that fall apart in your toddler’s hands, fake designer perfume from market stalls that burns your skin, mice in your can of tuna or somebody’s sticking plaster in your bread can all have disastrous affects on somebody’s health.
Finding the right legal representative
Personal injury claim solicitors are specialists in this highly complex field of UK law. There may not be a suitable solicitor in your local Ilmington area, but help is at hand.

Do you qualify?
Provided your accident occurred in the last 3 years and was due to another person’s negligence you are entitled to claim compensation. Simply go online to Accident Advice Helpline’s website and complete their 30-second test. It will confirm whether you have a valid claim and give you an estimate of how much your claim might be worth, if your case is won.
Do I have to attend court?
The accident solicitor in Ilmington or other specialists assigned to your case by Accident Advice Helpline will work on a no win no fee basis, meaning you won’t need to pay money upfront to start your case. Most cases are quite straightforward and can be handled over the phone. Your accident solicitor in Ilmington will try to settle out of court, which is by far the cheapest and fastest option, and the one most people decide upon as the best solution.
Your solicitor will take all the details from you and handle all legal paperwork, so you won’t be asked to complete an endless amount of forms. Your solicitor will discuss with you how much compensation you might be awarded at court and how much compensation you’d be prepared to accept, if settling out of court.
Finally, your accident solicitor in Ilmington or other specialist will write to the defendant, outlining your injuries and how the accident occurred. The letter will contain an offer to settle, and the defendant must consider this letter and answer within 3 months maximum or the case goes to court. It’s unlikely you’ll have to attend, but if you do, your accident solicitor in Ilmington will prepare you really well.
