Are you looking for an accident solicitor in Irvine because you had a road traffic accident in winter? Accident Advice Helpline has a whole team of ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors that could help you to get your payout – and we make things as easy as possible for you from the beginning.
Accident Advice Helpline’s way
Customer service is of the utmost importance to us. That’s why we have a 24/7 hotline, which is fully staffed by professional advisers. It’s also why we insist that everyone who works for us adheres to a code of conduct that’s underpinned by integrity, dependability, reliability and accountability.
When you call, you are guaranteed to be treated with empathy and sensitivity as your advisor listens to you and takes down your details in confidence. If you qualify to claim, your details will be passed to a ‘no win, no fee’ accident solicitor in Irvine, who will get to work as soon as possible, dealing with insurance companies and other agencies on your behalf.
How to contact your accident solicitor in Irvine
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have two phone numbers and a texting service:
- Dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline
- Dial 0333 500 0993 from a mobile
- Text “claim365” to 88010 and someone will call you back
If your case is pursued by one of our personal injury solicitors, they will aim to secure you a payout. If you do win your case, this payout will consist of two elements: one for the accident and injury, and another for the reimbursement of expenses related to the accident.
You will need to go for an additional medical assessment for the claim to proceed, but it’s unlikely you will have to go to court. Most claims are settled out of court, because insurance companies prefer to save time and money – and court cases can be lengthy and expensive. This is good for the claimant, too, who avoids a lot of stress and pressure.
How to avoid trouble on the road in winter
The road accident cases we deal with at Accident Advice Helpline all arise because someone else was at fault – usually another driver.
But we’re always happy to dispense advice on how to prevent accidents, because we know that if you stay alert and focused on the road in winter, you might notice another driver doing something reckless and be able to take action to avoid their behaviour affecting you.
Let’s look at three key areas.
1) The driver. Are you fit to be behind the wheel? If you’ve had a drink, you won’t be in any state to drive, so don’t even think about putting the key in the ignition. Don’t drive if you’re tired, either – get plenty of rest before making a trip.
2) The car. Make sure the brakes and tyres are in excellent condition. Check the fluid levels – oil, antifreeze and water should all be topped up if necessary. Your lights should work, and your windows should be clear.
3) The conditions. Is the weather bad? Ask yourself whether your journey is really necessary. If not, don’t go.
