- Steroid injections
- Surgery to release the nerve
Make your claim
Accident Advice Helpline were established in 2000 to give access to justice to the non-fault victims of accidents and in the last 13 years we have helped many thousands of victims get the compensation to which they were entitled.
In 1998, the government abolished legal aid for personal injury claims. This put making a claim out of the reach of many people, so the 1999 Finance Act allowed the conditional fee agreement to be used instead. This is better known as No Win, No Fee and it is the basis we operate on. As you do not need to find any money to start your claim, anyone can now make a personal injury compensation claim.
