Personal injury claims and an injury lawyer in Leytonstone and Wanstead
UK law says that if someone causes an accident in which you are injured, the guilty party should financially compensate you.

Accident Advice Helpline was established in June 2000, specifically to provide justice to the blameless victims of accidents, it’s what we have excelled at ever since, and what we will continue to excel at in the future.
No money needed to start your claim
In 1998, the government of the day abolished legal aid for personal injury compensation claims. This meant that only people with plenty of money could afford to sue for damages, unless they were prepared to take huge risks. Many solicitors at this time, wanted large upfront payments before they would start the work, so many claims were just never started.
The 1999 Finance Act allowed the use of conditional fee arrangements for claims, and this made all the difference. Suddenly anyone could make a claim as they did not have to find any money upfront, or if they lost their case. Today, this is better known as ‘no win, no fee’ and the principle is just the same.
