When it comes to the best no-win, no-fee* company for accident compensation, of course our opinion is that we’re the best. Accident Advice Helpline has over 16 years’ experience helping people claim for all kinds of accidents and injuries. But a quick search on Google will bring up a dazzling array of different companies, in fact, thousands of personal injury solicitors and law firms claiming to get you the personal injury compensation you are entitled to after your accident. So how do you go about finding the best no-win, no-fee* company to handle your claim? We know that it can be tricky, so we’ve drawn up a shortlist of things to look out for when hunting for a reputable personal injury lawyer.
What to look for when searching for the best no-win, no-fee* company:
No upfront fees
This has to be number one on our list, for a number of reasons. Firstly, any law firm asking you to pay upfront fees to handle your claim is putting you at financial risk and should be avoided. There’s just no need to pay extortionate fees when it comes to making a personal injury claim. Accident Advice Helpline only takes on genuine cases so there is a low risk to both you and us. This means there’s also an excellent chance that your claim will be successful, and therefore no need for us to charge any upfront fees. Bear in mind though that if your claim is unsuccessful, you may be left liable for paying the defendant’s legal fees. This is why it’s so important to search for the best no-win, no-fee* company, rather than just settling for the first firm you come across. Make sure you check the details of any contracts before signing too, as more unscrupulous companies won’t be upfront about the fees they charge.
Support when you need it most
The aftermath of an accident can be a stressful time, and the last thing you need is more stress. There is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim for accident compensation, but you shouldn’t ever feel pressured into rushing a decision. You want to find the best no-win, no-fee* company that will offer you advice and support when you need it most. There’s no use working with a firm which you can never contact by phone – nobody wants to speak to an answering service all the time. Our helpline is free to call and open 24 hours, and our aim is to make your claim as simple and stress-free as possible.
Expert lawyers with relevant knowledge
What’s the best way to be successful in your case? Getting the best advice from lawyers with relevant experience. You also want a team of lawyers that are local to you as nobody wants to deal with solicitors miles away. We have a large team of specialist solicitors across the UK, so you can get advice from somebody local to you on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis. If you need extra support, or in the unlikely event that your claim ends up in court, you’ll have a team of expert lawyers supporting you at every step of the claims process.
Try before you buy
Whether you are one of the 621,000 workers who sustained non-fatal injuries at work in 2015/16 or one of the 3,038 workers who sustained over-seven-day injuries after a fall from height in 2014, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation if somebody else is at fault for your accident. You don’t need to have been injured at work either – you could have suffered injuries in a road traffic accident or even been injured after an accident in a public place like a shop or restaurant. The important thing to remember is that you are entitled to advice which could help you decide whether or not to proceed with a personal injury claim, and you should never feel pressured into claiming if you are unsure. We offer no-obligation advice to anybody who calls our freephone helpline, and we believe that the best no-win, no-fee* company will do the same.
Claiming compensation for minor injuries
We hear a lot from people who have sustained minor injuries and are unsure whether they’re eligible to claim. The good news is that, provided somebody else caused your accident and you sought medical advice for your illness or injuries, you should be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. You may have sustained whiplash after a rear-end collision, or be one of the 500,000 people who suffer food poisoning every year in the UK. You may even have suffered psychological trauma after witnessing an accident or other violent event, and we can help you with this too. Bearing in mind that there is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, it makes sense to get in touch with us as soon as possible after your accident, to get advice and think about what you may want to do next.
Why choose us?
