An accident, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem, can be a life-changing event. As well as the immediate physical consequences, the long-term emotional impact and financial consequences of time away from work and long-term medical care can have a profound effect on all areas of your life.
If you’ve had an accident in the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. That’s where Accident Advice Helpline comes in; as one of the largest law firms in the UK, and with more than a decade of experience in handling personal injury claims, we’re the perfect people to provide you with an injury lawyer who can help.

Common accident claims include slips, trips and falls, road traffic accidents, incidents at work, medical negligence and injuries sustained as a result of crime. Of course, this is by no means an exhaustive list; if you’ve had an accident of any sort for which you were not to blame, we may be able to help.
It’s easy, too; most claims can be processed by telephone and the majority of claimants will not need to attend court. However, it’s common practice for an injury lawyer to require you to attend a medical assessment. These are undertaken in order to help us get a better idea of the nature of your injury.
As a general rule, claims must be made within three years; however, this time limit may be more flexible in cases involving children or industrial disease.
So how is the amount you’ll receive decided? A number of factors are taken into account – a payment for the injury itself, plus reimbursement for loss of earnings, travel costs, medical expenses, home help and any number of other costs.
