    "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."

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Dacorum

    When you have a car accident, even if it’s a minor bump, it’s always a stressful situation. Getting injured makes things worse – you might have whiplash, fractured limbs, or even a serious head injury, depending on the severity of the accident.

    You could claim through an expert injury lawyer in Dacorum

    If your accident wasn’t your fault, you could put in a compensation claim, which an expert injury lawyer in Dacorum will handle on your behalf. When you choose Accident Advice Helpline to deal with your case, you are picking a law firm with 14 years’ experience and a reputation for excellence in client care.

    We will make sure things run as smoothly as possible. You probably won’t have to go to court. But there are some things you can do to make the process as efficient and hassle-free as possible.

    At the scene: what to do

    These are the things you MUST do if you’re involved in an accident:

    • Stop at the scene
    • Call the police if anyone is injured or the accident is disrupting the traffic flow
    • Call an ambulance if anyone needs one
    • Give your name and address to any other parties involved

    Then there are the things that you should do if at all possible, because they will help you with your insurance claim and any claim for compensation that you wish to make through an expert injury lawyer in Dacorum:

    • Take the name, address, contact number and insurance details of the other driver
    • Take the names and contact numbers of any witnesses
    • Take photographs of the scene of the accident and the damage to your vehicle

    Making a claim

    Once you have been checked out by a doctor, whether at hospital or your GP’s surgery, you should rest. You may need to take some time off work to recover properly, and it is during this period that you might find yourself in a bit of financial trouble. Being off work could mean reduced wages, and having to get a home help or a childminder will increase your outgoings.

    If you claim compensation and you are successful, you will receive a payout, which will reimburse you for these expenses and losses, and enable you to spend the rest of your recovery period without all those money worries on your mind.
