    London – A city of wonder

    London is a fantastic city. The capital of Great Britain and truly a crown jewel. A magnet for workers and tourists, the opportunities for success in the city are huge. But it is also the most heavily populated city in England and has a higher number of accidents each day than any other city in the UK.

    How to get compensation in London

    So, let’s talk about how to get compensation in London. Getting the compensation you are entitled to you in London is not very different than compensation anywhere else in the UK. Except that London sees a much higher level of some types of accident than any other city in the UK. By far the most common accident in London happens on the busy, congested London roads. Road traffic accidents happen alarmingly frequently in Central London and the most common injury resulting from these road traffic accidents is whiplash. This is because whiplash is most commonly caused by a low speed collision, where a vehicle is ‘shunted’. In a higher speed collision, the car crumples and absorbs the impact but in a low speed crash, your body takes the full force, whipping your head forwards and then backwards at high speed. Just a quick look at our Central London roads tells you that low speed collisions are inevitable. The introduction of the congestion charge has done little to slow the trend of whiplash claims in the capital.

    So how do you go about making your claim?

    If you need to make a claim for compensation, for whiplash or any other injury, you have options about how to go about it. You can choose to be heavily involved, to guide your own claim and make all decisions yourself. Or you can choose to ask someone else to manage your claim on your behalf, usually for a fee. But whichever way you choose to manage your claim, you will need a solicitor. A compensation claim is a legal process, and as such you will need a solicitor to handle many aspects of your claim.

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we offer you a complete support package, covering every aspect of your claim from start to finish. We will match you to the right specialist solicitor for your needs, complete all of your paperwork and arrange all of your appointments on your behalf. The majority of our clients never complete any paperwork and have their compensation claims fully completed in less than 12 months. Best of all, unlike many other companies, we charge no upfront fees and we offer you our 100% no win no fee* guarantee. This means that you have no risk and nothing to lose.
