    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Injury Lawyer in Dorking

    Many people suffer accidents and do nothing about it. Did you realise that two and a half million people in the UK suffer accidents every year through no fault of their own, and that only a third actually claim compensation? It may seem astounding, but it is a fact.

    If you have suffered an accident, don’t be a statistic if you want to make a compensation claim and need an injury lawyer in Dorking. The local area will have a choice of firms who can help you, or you can choose to take advantage of a nationwide service.

    Compensation claim facts

    Some other little known facts about compensation claims are:

    • Only 6% of the British population understand their legal rights to make a claim;
    • 19% of victims would have no idea how to start a claim and who to speak to;
    • Making a claim can highlight a dangerous situation that may put others at risk; and
    • In the year 2009 to 2010, over 78,000 claims were made against employers, so if you have suffered an accident at work then you are far from alone.

    Making a claim for compensation is your right

    Many people injured in accidents that were not their fault do not understand their rights under law and are often afraid to make a claim, feeling like a fraud or some type of scammer. Being injured in an accident that was not your fault means that you are entitled, by law, to make a compensation claim. This is so that you can not only receive compensation for your injuries, and any lost wages and expenses that have been created as a result, but also to bring to justice the people responsible and make them liable for their actions.

    Making a claim does not have to cost the earth

    New legislation means that there is no longer legal aid available for accident victims, but many solicitors offer a no win no fee policy that will mean should you lose, there will be no fees liable to be paid. If you should win, you are expected to cover 25% of the costs surrounding the case; of course, this will come out of the overall payout you receive.
