Have you sustained a broken foot?
Accident Advice Helpline can shower you with free legal advice. We realise that sustaining a broken foot is very painful, can take time to heal, and can be a big inconvenience for you in going about your day-to-day life. So we do take this kind of injury very seriously. Using our service, and taking our free legal advice does not place you under any obligation to proceed with a claim with us. So feel free to call us clarify your position.
A valid claim
The first thing you need to know is whether or not your claim is legally valid. For a claim to be valid, several criteria need to be met. First of all, the accident must have been someone else’s fault.
The validity of your claim will also depend on you having received medical treatment for your injuries. This could be a trip to hospital in an ambulance, or seeing your GP a few days afterwards, due to pain. The records and reports generated will confirm that you received your broken foot in the accident.
Finally, your claim will need to be made within a set time frame. This is usually three years after the accident occurs, unless you were a child at the time, in which case you can claim at any time before your 21st birthday.
Filing a claim
You can look for a no-win, no-fee* lawyer in your phone book, or you can call on a trusted law firm such as ours. At Accident Advice Helpline, we help thousands of people like you every month, and we do so on a no-win, no-fee* basis. So you won’t need to pay us any cash up-front to get your claim started.
Being awarded compensation will not magically make everything OK again, but it can take some of the sting out of the situation and help to ease some of the financial burden.
