There are some things that we only do a few times during our lives and these include things like buying a house and opening a bank account. Another example is claiming compensation for car accident injuries. We don’t know exactly how to go about it because we are doing it for the first time. We will probably get a lot of conflicting and confusing advice from people that we talk to. Car accident injuries include neck, back, leg and arm injuries.
Common concerns of people who are claiming compensation for car accident injuries
“What exactly is compensation for car accident injuries?”
When you have been in a car accident that was not your fault you are entitled to claim compensation for your injury. The compensation includes money for the injuries themselves as well as compensation for money that you have lost because of the injury. You claim this from the person at fault by providing details of your injury and the losses that you have suffered.
“I’m not that sure my claim for compensation for car accident injuries will be successful!”
This is really easy to work out. Accident Advice Helpline friendly, professional advisers will use a unique 30 second test to assess if you have grounds to make a claim. Even then, there is no obligation for you to go ahead with the claim if you don’t want to.
“How do I find a lawyer to help me claim compensation for car accident injuries?”
Accident Advice Helpline has a national network of many legal partners who will be able to guide you through making a claim for compensation. All you have to do is make the first call and they will help you through the whole process. Accident Advice Helpline is endorsed by the TV personality Esther Rantzen.

“I can’t afford to pay legal costs.”
That doesn’t matter. All the solicitors work on a no win, no fee* basis so you will not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful. If you are successful, the fees can usually be claimed from the other party.
“I don’t want to attend lots of appointments.”
Actually, it is rare for cases to appear in court and the majority of cases are handled over the telephone. There may be one local appointment with a doctor who will complete a medical assessment. .
“Will I get thousands of pounds?”
That is unknown at the beginning of the claim. Each claim is unique. However, your solicitor will handle your case efficiently and will work hard to get the maximum amount of compensation that they can for you. It will be useful if you can keep a record of any financial loss that you have incurred as a result of the accident.
