    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Who Pays My Compensation?

    Most people are well aware that if they are injured in an accident which is not their fault, they can claim compensation. But what is this money and where does it come from?

    Eligibility

    Not everyone who is involved in a non-fault accident can claim for compensation. It is therefore important at an early stage to get professional advice so you don’t end up out of pocket. Rather than a quick internet search for a local ‘accident solicitor Southwell’, call the 24-hour helpline offered by Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile and using their 30-second test they will be able to confirm whether or not you are eligible to take the claim further.

    Is your accident solicitor Southwell no win, no fee?

    After agreeing with Accident Advice Helpline that they will progress your case, they will start to act for you on a no win, no fee basis which means you won’t be asked for any money upfront. The same can’t be said about every law firm which pops up when you search for ‘accident solicitor Southwell’ but no win, no fee is the safest way from a financial point of view. The law firm will start gathering all the evidence to support your claim and will collect items such as pictures of any injuries, medical statements, proof of loss of earnings or statements from those involved.

    Doing the deal

    In most cases, the other party’s insurance company will want to avoid the cost and inconvenience of going to court, especially if it is very obvious that you have a strong case and the person who caused your injury is likely to lose. They will offer your law team an out-of-court settlement in most cases, which means you won’t ever get as far as standing in court and giving your evidence to a judge. In most cases you won’t even have to attend meetings with your legal firm as Accident Advice Helpline does most of their consultations over the phone.

    Insurance

    The other driver or the business who caused your injury on their premises will have the costs of paying you compensation, as well as associated legal costs, via their own insurance policies. In some cases, such as industrial injury, compensation is paid by central government.
