Cut the cost of compensation in Ealing

Don’t worry about the cost of compensation in Ealing as you don’t need any money to start a claim with us.
Your legal rights
Under the law you will be entitled to claim compensation if you have been injured in the last three years by someone else’s negligence. You will have to show that the injuries were bad enough to have a significantly negative impact on your quality of life. This generally means an injury that required medical treatment.
You can get more advice about your claim by giving our helpline a call. As well as being entirely free of charge this carries with it no obligation to continue using the services we provide. It is simply an opportunity to find out more about what you’re entitled to. We’ll tell you honestly whether we think you have a good chance of winning and if so how you can go about winning your case.
Making a claim
The majority of personal injury claims will be heard in the small claims court. As the claimant in the case the burden of proof will lie with you, which means you’ll have to work hard to build a compelling case. The defendant – as in all areas of the law – receives the benefit of the doubt so if you can’t prove your case, you will not win.
If the thought of going to court is intimidating, don’t worry. The majority of claims do not go that far. More often than not the other side will attempt to settle out of court. This works from their point of view as it avoids a lengthy court case. However, their focus at this stage will be on reducing the amount they have to pay out. As such they will try to get away with offering only a relatively small amount of compensation. To make sure you’re not short-changed it’s a good idea get advice from your lawyer. They will be able to tell you whether or not an offer is realistic or if you should continue making a claim.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have the best lawyers around. They will give you the best chance of winning a claim and being fully compensated for your claim. We also offer the reassurance of no win no fee* so you will only have to pay legal fees if you win your case.
