What is the Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme?
The Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme covers all work undertaken by solicitors and Fellows of the Institute of Legal Executives (FILEX) on behalf of victims and their dependants, or compensators, as to their rights and obligations arising out of any alleged act of negligence or breach of statutory duty as a result of which the victim has sustained personal injuries or fatal injuries. The scheme covers all types of personal injury work.
The scheme is open to those who act exclusively for claimants or defendants as well as those with a mixed practice.
Accident Advice Helpline is a member of the Injury Law Society. Set up in 2000, Accident Advice Helpline was established to help people claim the compensation to which they are entitled. It has already helped thousands of people.
Accident Advice Helpline is fully endorsed by consumer champion Esther Rantzen and a member of the Injury Law Society – “If you call Accident Advice Helpline, I promise you will receive free advice, that no money is required to make a claim and no-win, no-fee* means exactly that.”
