Accident Advice Helpline is a leading law firm who help scores of people with their Brighton accident claim every year. Therefore, if you have been hurt in an accident in the Brighton area that was not your own fault then they are the obvious people to call. They have identified three key phases that every Brighton accident claim will pass through and they are all outlined here.
Phase 1 of a Brighton accident claim
This is the phase immediately after the accident and has been identified as one of the most stressful times. Take a road traffic accident as an example, where another car has driven into the rear of your car at a roundabout during rush hour when you are driving your kids home and it’s pouring with rain! Your car is probably blocking the road and other vehicles are trying to drive around you, your kids may be upset and you will be concerned about them being hurt. You may also be in shock and discomfort yourself. It would be very tempting to just get back in your car and get back home as quickly as possible but that is certainly not going to help your future personal injury claim.
Take a deep breath, check if anyone needs immediate medical attention and collect some basic details before you leave the scene. At the very least, get the registration and contact details of the driver who caused the accident. If possible, get photographs and witness contact details as well.
Phase 2 of a Brighton accident claim
This is the phase where you will be contacting Accident Advice Helpline to get some legal support for your claim. You will probably be taking the unique Accident Advice Helpline 30 second test and will be getting an estimate of what your claim is worth. You will also be allocated a personal injury lawyer who specialises in your type of accident and will be providing whatever information they require. They will need this information to prove who was at fault for the accident. You will probably have a medical assessment appointment with a medical expert who will prepare a detailed report about your injuries. Once liability has been established an amount of compensation will be negotiated.
Phase 3 of a Brighton accident claim
This is the final phase of your personal injury claim. Your Accident Advice Helpline lawyer will be fighting hard to get you the maximum amount of compensation. It is likely that your claim will have been entirely handled over the phone and it is very unlikely that you will have had to appear in court. At the end of the claims process your lawyer will contact you to let you know exactly how much money you have got and arrange for it to be paid to you.
