    "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."

    Injury lawyer in Sedgefield


    When you contact Accident Advice Helpline about making a car accident claim with an injury lawyer in Sedgefield, one of the first things that you will be asked is whether the accident was your own fault. This is one of the crucial questions that make up our unique 30-second test. This can be accessed on the phone or online at any time of the day or night. It will establish whether you have grounds for a claim and will even give you an estimate of how much money you could receive in compensation if you win your case.

    Here is the complete list of questions that you will be asked

    • Were you at fault for the accident?
    • Did you receive medical attention?
    • Was the accident less than three years ago?

    The test is suitable for all sorts of accidents, including car accident and accidents at work. If you are not sure about who was at fault for your accident, then the friendly, professional advisers at Accident Advice Helpline will be able to give you some advice.

    There are countless ways in which your car accident may have been caused. As part of the claims process, your Accident Advice Helpline expert injury lawyer in Sedgefield will be helping you to prove that someone else was to blame, then negotiating a sum of compensation. One common cause of car accidents is drink driving.

    Drink driving claims with an injury lawyer in Sedgefield

    It has been estimated that around 280 people die in the UK every year as a result of a drunk driver. It is no longer socially acceptable to get behind the wheel when you are drunk, and this practice has been illegal for many years. Consuming alcohol or drugs affects a driver’s ability to control the car. Their skills as a driver, their judgment regarding risk and their reaction times are all severely affected by alcohol.

    If you suspect that the driver who caused your accident had consumed alcohol or drugs, you should summon the police to the scene. They will be able to carry out tests to confirm this. Driving under the influence of alcohol is a criminal offence and the police may want to take legal action. This will be in addition to your compensation claim. Witness statements and photographs from the scene may also be useful in proving your case.

    If you have been hurt in an accident caused by a drunk driver that was not your fault, then here at Accident Advice Helpline we will do all that we can to secure you a fair level of compensation. You should not be suffering financially because of someone else’s reckless behaviour. We will handle your case on a no-win, no-fee basis so that you can avoid huge upfront legal fees.
