There are highly specialised and qualified personal injury lawyers who deal with all types of injury claims working for Accident Advice Helpline. Choosing to start claiming with an injury lawyer from us can assist you with all types of injuries. For example, if you have suffered a car accident, these could range from a moderate whiplash injury to a devastating spinal injury or limb amputation.
How do you know when you need to start claiming with an injury lawyer?
You can start claiming with an injury lawyer if the accident in which you were hurt was caused by someone else’s negligence.
If it appears that no one was to blame for the accident, then the situation is less clear cut. Some injury lawyers are very good at spotting accidents which were someone else’s fault. It is always a good idea to call Accident Advice Helpline to discuss the details of your particular accident, just in case we are able to help you.
What exactly do injury lawyers do?
Injury lawyers start off by assessing the evidence that you have provided to demonstrate that someone else was to blame for the car accident in which you were injured.
They will be looking at your statement, the statements of other people who saw the accident (witness statements) and any visual evidence such as photographs or sketches. Once they have been able to establish that another person was at fault for the accident (this is called establishing liability), then they will start to negotiate a sum of money for you – this is called damages or compensation.
How much compensation will you get?
The level of compensation that you will receive for an injury will very much depend on how badly you were hurt. A person with multiple and life-changing injuries would expect to get more money in compensation than a person with mild whiplash.
You will also get some compensation for the money that you have lost because you have been injured. The more money that you have lost in wages and by paying extra childcare bills, for example, the higher the level of compensation you will be awarded.
Claiming with an injury lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline will ensure that you get the best possible chance of success for your case. We will work hard to get you the maximum compensation for your injuries. All our lawyers offer a no-win, no-fee* promise to their clients so you won’t risk your personal finances by making a claim.
