Whatever your injury – and hopefully it is one of the minor ones, we can help you.
Firstly, we can give you all the help and support that you need prior to starting your claim; we can confirm that you qualify for compensation and answer all of your questions about the claim process. This all comes free, if you decide not to go ahead and claim for any reason, that’s up to you, we are happy to help.
If you want to claim compensation, we will hand your details over to one of our lawyers. Our lawyers are injury lawyers; experts in their field and as such are best placed to get you the maximum amount of compensation possible. All of the lawyers here at the Accident Advice Helpline work under no win no fee contracts. You do not need to find the money to pay your legal bill upfront.
Please note that:
- You cannot get legal aid for a personal injury claim.
- You cannot be dismissed from your job because you are claiming compensation from your employer.
- Your employer will have liability and indemnity insurance. It is the insurer who will pay your compensation, not your employer.
The amount of compensation that you get will depend on how serious your injury was and the impact that it had on your life – and your finances. You can be reimbursed for any accident related costs, so make sure that you keep hold of receipts and bank statements. The most common items that people claim for are:
- Travel expenses
- Childcare costs
- The cost of private medical treatments
- Other medical costs
- Replacing damaged clothing/ personal items
- Lost earnings
If you would like an estimate of how much compensation you could get please us the compensation calculator on our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk
Personal injury compensation payments are not subject to tax, but if you have received any state benefits during your recovery, such as income support or disability allowance, then you may have to pay that money back. Your solicitor will advise you further on this when you come to claim.
