Accidents strike at any time and without discrimination. They are traumatic but for some accident victims, the impact can be long lasting and catastrophic.
People who suffer injuries in an accident may be able to claim compensation but, they all have a similar concern: can they afford the cost of a lawyer in Preston?
Specialist legal advice for compensation claims
The law is a vast and complex area of study. There are many parts of it that are considered specialist and compensation claims is one of them.
Personal injury law is the specific area that covers claims of this kind and the criteria involved. When clients hear the words specialist lawyers, they immediately assume that this will come with an astronomical price tag attached. With Accident Advice Helpline, this is not the case.
We take on all cases on a no win, no fee basis. For you, this means two things:
- You do not need to pay any money upfront for advice nor to get your case started
- You will only pay a fee if your claim is successful
Thus, you can immediately see that you can afford the cost of a lawyer in Preston.
Is your claim eligible?
Accident Advice Helpline also take time talking with you and listening to you story. We will ask you various questions, all of which are used to assess your claim for eligibility. By this, we mean measuring your case against the three criteria as laid down in law:
- The accident must not have been your fault
This may be cut and dried, as they say; the driver of the other vehicle that collided with yours may be obviously at fault for the accident and therefore, by default, your injuries too.
There are other cases where this may take more legal arguments and so on, a challenge that Accident Advice Helpline don’t step away from.
- Your injuries have been initially assessed
When you have been hurt, you will more than likely seek the help of your own doctor or attend hospital. This is an important first step and in some cases where injuries are not severe or life-changing, may be sufficient to set the compensation amount. However, you do need to be aware that your injuries may need further assessment.
- You are claiming within the deadline
There is a three-year deadline within which time you must claim compensation. Find out how this works by calling us!
