    Best solicitor in Hebburn


    If you’re looking for the best solicitor in Hebburn you can be forgiven for feeling a little out of your depth. After all this is not something you’ll be involved with much in your life or at least we hope it isn’t, so it’s nice to have a guide. That’s the role Accident Advice Helpline can fulfil. We have a team of experts on hand to help with any type of personal injury claim.

    What you’re entitled to

    The law here in the UK states that if you’re hurt in an accident that was not your fault you should be entitled to compensation. However, there are things there that need to be clarified.

    As well as not being your fault, you’ll have to show that it was someone else’s fault. That may not be entirely straightforward as you’ll need to present enough evidence to prove your story to the full satisfaction of the court.

    You will also need to have been hurt badly enough to require considerable medical attention and the accident will have to have happened within the last three years.

    Where you’ll claim

    The majority of cases are reasonably straightforward and will probably be held in the small claims court.

    However in reality it may not even get that far as most cases are settled out of court. Few companies want the expense and hassle of going through a court case so they are likely to offer you money early on to avoid having to pay more later.

    This claim might be way below what you’d receive in a court, so it’s a good idea to set realistic expectations early on so you know whether or not you should accept the offer.

    About your compensation

    When assessing your compensation the courts will look at several things. Firstly, they will see how much the accident has cost you financially and secondly they will look at the severity of the injury. They will use this to come up with a figure which they feel is appropriate.

    Using the same criteria, we can tell you how much we think your claim might be worth. We do this through a free online 30 second test which tells you one way or another whether you have a good case to bring and if so how much it might be worth.

    Finding the best solicitor in Hebburn

    This allows you to know what you’re getting into early on and to set goals for yourself. This is important as it allows you judge any settlement offer you receive and also to assess the final compensation amount against your expectations.

    However we can never guarantee success which is why we’ll find the best solicitor in Hebburn who works on a no win no fee* basis. That means that no matter what happens you’ll never be left out of pocket if you lose.
