Axminster is a delightful market town, located in Devon around 28 miles north of Exeter. Overlooking the River Axe as it meanders its way towards the English Channel, the town’s population of around 5,000 inhabitants enjoy a delightful town, forever etched in the memory as it gave its name to a type of carpet.
Axminster carpet is known for its quality, colours and patterns but the town has one more, contemporary claim to fame – Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has his River Cottage HQ here, selling his organic produce from a local building that was once the town’s ballroom.
Picturesque, peaceful and delightful – you wouldn’t think that anyone here would need the services of an injury claims lawyer in Axminster.
But everyone is entitled to the help of an injury claims lawyer in Axminster if the following has happened – an accident, incident or catastrophic occurrence that was not their fault.
If the consequence of this accident was that you were injured and that you had to seek medical help for these injuries, then you may need the specialist services of AAH and an injury claims lawyer in Axminster.
What’s more, if your accident was within the last three years, then you really do have all the ingredients of a recipe that is claiming compensation for personal injuries.
Before you all hold up your hands in horror, let the Accident Advice Helpline help you with a few points:
Being able to claim compensation for injuries that occurred as a result of an accident that was not your fault has been around on the UK law books for some time.
It is not something new and it has not come from America.
It has been there for a long time BUT the problem with claiming compensation in the long distant past has been… MONEY.
In the dim, distant past, if you were the injured party and felt you had a case to make a claim, you had to find the money from somewhere to take the other person or company to court. Should you have lost, it would have been a very expensive day in court.
And then someone looked at this situation and thought “this is unfair!” Why should you, the victim of someone else’s negligence, have to foot the bill to ask for compensation?
So, the ‘conditional fee agreement’ was brought in; you will know this as the ‘no win no fee*’ slogan that can be seen on adverts and billboards across the UK.
Have you been hurt? Think you might have a claim? Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993; you are under no obligation to continue if you decide it is not for you and you can put your credit card away too – you won’t be needing that.
