Many people who suffer a non-fault accident make an illnesses claim at some point in the future. But it is worth knowing that a three-year time limit exists in which to start your claim.
Being hurt because of someone else’s negligence is a traumatic experience, and having access to professional support when making a claim is vital. Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you to make your claim if you meet these three principal requirements:
A non-fault accident
As we’ve already mentioned, the accident must have been caused by a third party’s negligence. This is often an individual, but can also be an organisation or business.
A three-year timescale
You need to start a claim within three years of the date of the incident, so it is worthwhile finding out more information about the process as soon as possible after the accident.
Injury medically treated
A medical professional must have provided an assessment of your injury around the time of the incident, and also given treatment.
No-win, no-fee illnesses claim
Many people believe that they won’t be able to pay for a personal injury claim, but because of no-win, no-fee, this is not the case. The no-win, no-fee funding method for personal injury claims means that there is no requirement to pay any upfront legal fees prior to starting a case.
The system was first introduced in the 1990s, and offers a little protection for your personal finances. We offer no-win, no-fee for an illness claim with all our expert solicitors, and you also benefit from the fact that they work for us in-house.

Our team of personal injury solicitors are all fully-qualified, and all have experience of making these types of claim. With an advanced knowledge of personal injury law, your solicitor will be able to navigate around any stumbling blocks encountered within your case, and negotiate skilfully on your behalf.
We prefer to deal with cases over the phone whenever possible, as this often negates the need for our customers to attend court. Your lawyers will advise you on whether this is possible for your claim, and is just one of the ways in which we strive to reduce your stress levels when claiming.
