    "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."

    Barnsley accident


    If you live in Barnsley, an accident could present a serious obstacle to the quality of your life. However, by making some smart choices you can give yourself an excellent chance of securing compensation – getting you back on the road to recovery in next to no time.

    After a Barnsley accident

    A lot of people belittle the plight of those individuals making claims for compensation. There is a perception that they are using an accident to secure a bit of cash. Certainly that’s been the emphasis on government policy over the past couple of decades most of which has made it more difficult for people to make a claim.

    There have also been moves to change the way in which lawyers collect their success fees and also how some firms offer incentives to bring clients in. There are also moves afoot to make the medical procedure of assessing injuries more robust.

    All these measures have the same goal. To deter people who were making frivolous claims. But (as always) the people most affected are the most vulnerable. This is typically someone who might have been in a Barnsley accident but doesn’t have bottomless pockets. So although they might think that they are entitled to compensation they may not make a claim because they simply can’t afford the money involved if everything goes wrong.

    What we do

    We think there has to be another way. Which is why if you live in Barnsley, Accident Advice Helpline should be one of your first calls. Since we started operations in 2000 we’ve been running a free helpline through which we hand out advice to people who want to find out whether or not they have a good legal grounding for making a claim. We look in detail at your situation before telling you honestly what we think you should do and what we believe your chances are of success. Regrettably in some cases we will have to tell you that we do not think you have a great chance of winning, in which case it’s better to stop early rather than pressing ahead.
