Can you get compensation for your accident in Stoke on Trent?
As a general rule, you can claim compensation for any injury or illness sustained in an accident that wasn’t your fault. This could be an accident that happened:
- On the road – perhaps caused by a careless driver, an obstructed junction, faulty traffic lights or a poor road surface.
- At home: as a result of using a faulty product, or because of substandard work carried out by a rogue tradesperson.
- At work – including industrial accidents.
- In a public place, shop or leisure facility.
Or perhaps somewhere else. If you need to check that the circumstances of your accident in Stoke on Trent meet the criteria for claiming compensation call our helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.

How to start your claim
If you would like to claim through Accident Advice Helpline, the first thing you need to do is call our helpline and discuss your accident in Stoke on Trent with one of our advisers. Your adviser will answer any questions you have about your claim and then assign your claim to one of our injury lawyers.
Your injury lawyer will take things from there; working on your claim until it reaches a court hearing or is settled in an out of court agreement – most personal injury claims are settled out of court, as this keeps costs down for all the parties involved.
From start to finish, your lawyer will try and keep your needed input to a minimum, to make the process as stress-free as possible. There is a chance that you will have to attend a court hearing but this is nothing for you to worry about. Any medical examination will be arranged at a convenient time for you and may be a chance to learn more about your injury from a specialist rather than a GP.
Our injury lawyers all work under ‘no win, no fee’ contracts, and always do their best to get the maximum amount of compensation possible. We are proud of our high success rate and our reputation for excellent customer care, so we will do everything in our power to get you your money as quickly as we can.
Because we work under ‘no win, no fee’ contracts, you can be fully confident that we are being honest about your chances of getting compensation for your accident in Stoke on Trent, and that we will do all that we can to achieve a positive result.
