    "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 lawyers in Atherton


    In 2015, 186,209 people were injured in road traffic accidents that took place on Britain’s roads. 1,732 of these people were fatally injured, so it is plain to see that our roads are far from safe. If you have been unlucky enough to be injured whilst on the road, there is a good chance that out injury lawyers in Atherton, here at Accident Advice Helpline, can help you obtain compensation.

    When can a compensation claim be made?

    If you have sustained an injury as part of a road traffic accident, you can only make a personal injury claim if you were injured due to the negligence of another party. If the accident that caused your injury was, in any way, your fault, you will usually be unable to make a claim.

    Furthermore, there is a strict time limit on making personal injury claims, which means that you will only be able to file a claim if you do so within 3 years of the date of your accident. If you were under 18 when your road traffic accident took place, however, you may be able to file a compensation claim, with the help of one of our injury lawyers in Atherton, up to 3 years from the day of your 18th birthday.

    Another thing that you will need to bear in mind is that you will be required to prove the fact that you were injured in your accident, which means that you will need to visit a doctor or medical professional for an official diagnosis if you are to make a claim.
