    How to find experienced auto accident attorneys

    If you have been involved in a road accident that was not your fault, Accident Advice Helpline’s experienced auto accident attorneys can help you to claim compensation for any injuries and financial losses you have sustained.

    While modern cars are equipped with a wide range of safety features, auto accidents can still cause a variety of injuries, including:

    • Whiplash
    • Cuts and bruises
    • Dislocated and broken bones
    • Internal injuries
    • Concussion and traumatic brain injuries
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder and other psychological problems

    The claims process

    The process of claiming compensation for injuries and financial losses consists of four main steps:

    Step 1: Claims Assessment

    Open Claim Calculator

    When you contact us via our Freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, a legally trained advisor will ask you to provide details of your auto accident. They will then use this information to assess your eligibility to make a claim. If you are eligible, they will pass your details onto one of our qualified auto accident attorneys.

    Step 2: Solicitor Consultation

    Your attorney will evaluate your case and calculate the value of your compensation claim. He or she will also begin to gather evidence in support of your claim. If necessary, your attorney will ask a medical expert to assess your injuries and will write out a Schedule of Losses, which will detail all the financial losses you wish to claim.

    Step 3: Negotiation

    Your attorney will present your case to the other party by sending a Letter of Claim, which will state that you intend to claim compensation for the injuries caused by their negligence. The other party will choose to either accept or dispute your claim. If your claim is accepted, your solicitor will negotiate a compensation settlement on your behalf. If disputed, it will be up to the courts to decide whether your claim is justified.

    Step 4: Compensation Settlement

    Following winning your case, the guilty party’s insurance company or the Motor Insurers’ Bureau will meet the cost of your compensation settlement.

    How our auto accident attorneys can help you

    At Accident Advice Helpline, our experienced auto accident attorneys will handle your case from start to finish and will be on hand to answer all your questions, help you to complete any necessary paperwork and ensure that you receive a medical examination from an expert in the field. While they settle the vast majority of our cases outside of the courts, if your claim does need to go through the courts, they will be able to provide you with the guidance you require.
