If you are unlucky enough to be in a situation where you need to make a compensation claim in Shepperton, the area may not have too many firms for to choose from. Actually deciding which company with whom to place your compensation claim can be quite a task. Local legal firms may not have the time or the resources to deal with compensation claims and may prefer to leave their handling to a dedicated body.
Fortunately for you and all those in your situation, there are national companies that help people from all over the country. One of these may be the best choice for you.
Where to start

Make that call
Starting a compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline is easy. Call 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 689 0993 from your mobile and speak with one of the experienced and professional staff who will take your call. The help lines are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You will be offered a 30-second test that will assess your claims eligibility; this can also be taken via our website before you call if you prefer. You may also be given an estimated award amount using a compensation calculator.
To be deemed eligible to make a compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline, the accident must have happened within the last three years. Once this date has passed, you will be classed as outside the current legislation for compensation claims. There are notable exceptions to this rule, but these relate to accidents in the workplace.
The other required criteria are that the accident was caused by someone else and that you suffered an injury as a result.
The facts about claims
No claim is guaranteed; each case will be considered on its own circumstances by a decision maker. There is also no set payout; any figure quoted to you is always an estimate until the case is complete. Personal injury claims are not free of charge. The costs of the case will be claimed back from the third party should you win, but following recent changes in legislation you are still liable to pay 25%. Many claims can be dealt with purely via telephone, but some may require further medical assessments.
If you have any further questions about compensation claims and about your case in particular, call Accident Advice Helpline today.
