    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Do I need a solicitor for a personal injury claim?


    When people sustain injuries through an accident that’s not their fault, the first thing that they often ask is, “Do I need a solicitor for a personal injury claim?”

    Do I need a solicitor for a personal injury claim?

    Of course, many people think they need a solicitor for this situation – and this is rightly so. But how do you find one? You may hunt through the phone book or do an online search, but who can you trust? There’s a lot of information to sift through.

    You might want to find someone who lives near you, or perhaps a friend knows of someone they’d recommend. But do they have specialist knowledge in personal injury claims? How many accident at work or road traffic accident cases have they actually won?

    Accident Advice Helpline are here to help

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we take all the hassle out of finding the right solicitor for you. If you’ve taken a tumble in Telford or broken bones in Berkhamstead, we can put you in touch with a specialist solicitor who is an expert in personal injury claims. With over 200 solicitors across the country at our fingertips, we will have someone who can help you.

    We’ll work with you to liaise with those responsible for your injuries, which may involve attending one additional medical assessment. When we contact those responsible, we’ll outline the details of your injury and explain how it occurred, requesting that they respond saying whether they accept responsibility. If they accept the blame, we’ll aim to settle out of court and this is normally the case.

    The compensation amount can vary greatly, and we’ll only be able to provide a figure after discussions with you.
