Here are some commonly asked questions Accident Advice Helpline receive asking about their service.
How do I get in touch with an accident solicitor in Ledbury?
This is very straightforward to do and does not involve you even having to leave your house. Just ring them on the 24/7 helpline 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993. You can also contact them via their website. Many people choose to take part in a unique Accident Advice Helpline test before they make the final decision about starting a claim. It only takes around 30 seconds and simply requires some basic details about the accident in which you were injured and about your injuries.
What type of legal work do they do?
They are personal injury solicitors. This means that they help people to claim compensation when they have been hurt in an accident that was not their fault. They claim the compensation from the person or organisation that was at fault for the accident.
Can they help me claim for an occupational accident?
Yes, their injury solicitors are experts at claiming compensation for work place accidents. You will need to supply some details about how the accident happened and about your injuries. It may be useful to jot some details down so that you can get all the information accurately reported when you are asked for it. Photographs can also be very useful in this process. Make sure that you also keep a record of all the doctors and hospital visits that you have made.
Do I have to pay legal fees up front to do this?
No, thankfully this is not necessary. Their personal injury lawyers will work for you on a no win no fee basis. This is the best method for you – the last thing that you can afford when you have just had an injury is expensive legal fees. You are already likely to be losing money because you are not earning and may have ‘out of pocket’ expenses such as travelling and childcare.
How do I know who I will be claiming from?
You make a claim from the person who was at fault for the accident. So, in car accidents, you may be making a claim from another driver because their poor driving or carelessness caused the accident. In occupational accidents you may make a claim from your employer because they did not safeguard your health and safety whilst you were at work. If you have had a slip or a fall in a public area (such as the street) you may be able to claim from the person who should have kept that area safe.
