    Claiming compensation in Dorset


    Are you thinking of claiming compensation in Dorset after a road traffic accident

    What do you have to worry about when you’re driving? There’s the car, of course – what if something goes wrong with that? Then there’s the weather, and the road conditions – if it’s raining heavily, things can get really difficult, and all those potholes don’t help matters much. While these things may cause accidents, the biggest problem is closer to home: the drivers. Yes, that includes you. Human error is a factor in most of the accidents that happen on Britain’s roads. If another driver’s mistake or deliberate action causes you to get injured, you could be considering claiming compensation in Dorset. Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with this.

    Could I make a road traffic accident claim

    To be eligible to proceed with a road traffic accident claim, the accident that you are in must be caused by someone else, and it must lead to injury. It doesn’t matter how severe the injuries are, or whether your car needs minor repairs or loading on to a tow truck. As long as you got hurt, and the accident wasn’t your fault, you can call Accident Advice Helpline.

    What will Accident Advice Helpline do

    We will process your claim for you, with the aim of securing you a payment of compensation. Much of the work on your accident claim will be carried out by a personal injury lawyer on a no win no fee basis, and if you win your case, you will receive your payout.

    There’s usually no need for a claim to end up in court, either. Insurers generally prefer to settle out of court – it saves them a lot of time and money.

    What causes human error?

    Human error may be the cause of many road traffic accidents, but what about the causes of human error? Here are some things that may lead to it:

    • Driving inexperience – this could mean that you make errors in judgement
    • Tiredness – through lack of sleep, or being on medication
    • Alcohol – even a small amount can impair function
