    Injured in Durham


    What to do if you are injured in Durham through someone else’s mistake

    Have you been injured in Durham? Durham is a beautiful old city with a stunning cathedral. It is also home to Durham University, which means the city has a very large student population. With an active student population comes a pubbing and clubbing scene. Where there are pubs and clubs, there is always alcohol consumption, too.

    Given the vibrancy of the nightlife in the city, it is not hard to be injured in Durham. It is easy to find yourself injured in Durham, and it can happen when you’re sober if those around you are not. If you are injured in Durham and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation to make up for what happened to you. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you achieve this objective.

    Can you claim compensation?

    Before you think about beginning a personal injury claim, it helps to know if you have a valid case. How do you know when your personal injury claim is valid, though? Essentially, your compensation claim is valid if you can answer the following questions in the affirmative:

    • Was someone else responsible for the accident?
    • Were you injured in the accident?
    • Did you receive medical attention for your injuries?
    • Did the accident happen less than three years ago?

    There are exceptions to the rules surrounding personal injury claims. Therefore it is still worth calling our advisers here at Accident Advice Helpline if you’d like to know for sure whether your claim is valid or not.

    More about Accident Advice Helpline

    We inaugurated Accident Advice Helpline back in 2000. Changes to the law in the late nineties made it impossible for people to obtain legal aid in order to begin personal injury claims. That meant that many people could not afford to begin a compensation claim after being injured in a non-fault accident. We thought that this was grossly unfair.

    Because of this new unfair law, we began Accident Advice Helpline to offer help to clients on a no-win, no-fee* basis. We are a law firm of talented personal injury lawyers and advisers. If you choose Accident Advice Helpline to assist with your claim, the no-win, no-fee* arrangement takes most of the risk of claiming away. That’s because we don’t ask for any deposit to start your claim with us. Furthermore, if your claim is not successful we will not ask you to pay our fees. In other words, we take the hit if your compensation claim is unsuccessful.

    For more information about what we do and how we can help you with your compensation claim, please get in touch with us. Friendly advisers are available on the landline number 0800 689 0500. You can also reach us on your mobile by calling 0333 500 0993.
