Have you been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault? How would you feel if someone told you that you might be able to get compensation for your injuries? Many people who make car accident compensation claims in Dunfermline and around the UK use their money to buy care in their homes, adapt their car for disability, or simply top up part of their income if they are unable to work full-time.
How to start a claim with Accident Advice Helpline
To claim with Accident Advice Helpline you need to meet three basic criteria:
- You should not have been at fault for the accident
- Medical attention should have been received for the injuries sustained
- The accident must have happened within the last three years
If you think you may be eligible, here are a few more facts about the claiming process.
Court attendance as part of car accident compensation claims in Dunfermline
Most of our customers find it very reassuring to discover they probably will not need to attend court as part of the claims process. We are able to process the majority of cases over the phone, which also speeds up the claim.
Attending court can dissuade people from starting a claim at all, but our in-house solicitors will be able to let you know if this is a requirement in your particular case.
One more medical assessment
You may need to attend a medical assessment, even though you will have received treatment at the time of the accident. This provides an up-to-date report on your injuries, including your progress since the accident and levels of rehabilitation.
Again, your solicitor will advise on this, but because most claims are dealt with via telephone, it is likely to be the only ‘appointment’ you will have to make.
No win, no fee* solicitors
Our in-house team of solicitors works on the basis of no win, no fee*. This is the term used to describe the payment process for legal work on personal injury claims, and was first introduced in the 1990s.
Basically, it lessens the financial risks associated with taking legal action, as you don’t have to pay your solicitor’s fees if your case is lost. If you approach other firms to make car accident compensation claims in Dunfermline, and they request money upfront, they are not operating ethically. Using 100% no win, no fee* puts customer interests first, and makes it easy to afford a claim regardless of circumstance.
