    Best legal advice for Colchester


    If you have suffered injury in an accident in Essex during the last three years, you may be looking for the best legal advice for Colchester accidents to sort out your personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has been in business for more than 15 years, and has the technical expertise needed to seek compensation through the courts.

    We take on claims from around the UK, including accidents on the roads, in the workplace, and also slip, trip and fall incidents. So let’s have a look at the eligibility requirements for making this type of claim.

    Who can make a claim for personal injury?

    You may be able to start a claim if you meet the following three conditions:

    • Your injury was treated by a medical professional around the time of the accident, such as a doctor in your local hospital or your own GP.
    • The accident was not your fault. Claims such as this are dependent on the accident having been caused by someone else’s negligence.
    • It must have happened within three years – this timescale runs from the date of your accident to the start date of a claim.

    If you need any help to understand these requirements, or are unsure about your liability for the accident, just call our friendly advisors on the helpline numbers given below.
