    "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 lawyers in Dorset


    We deal with in excess of 25,000 enquiries every month, many of them trying to find out if they qualify for compensation. Similar questions are often asked, even such things as do we have injury lawyers in Dorset, or maybe somewhere else in the UK.

    Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions of our helpline team.

    What makes you eligible to make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline?

    The rules for making a claim apply to all personal injury claims in the UK, the only exception being there can be slight difference on the timescale:

    • The accident must have happened within three years of the start of a claim
    • The injuries sustained must be treated by a medical professional either at the time of the accident or soon after
    • The person claiming must not have been to blame for the accident as the claim for compensation is always made against a third party

    Do your injury lawyers in Dorset use no-win, no-fee?

    All our in-house teams, including our injury lawyers in Dorset, use this method of funding for personal injury claims. No-win, no-fee allows you to start a claim without paying any legal costs in advance, and should the claim be unsuccessful, you will not be liable for your solicitor’s fees. This way we know that every innocent accident victim can afford to make a claim.

    How long does a claim take

    Every claim is different so it is impossible to promise a timescale for your claim. All we can tell you is that any delays will not be the fault of Accident Advice Helpline or our injury lawyers in Dorset.

    Our 30-second test is an online calculator that provides an estimate of a potential compensation award, based on the answers to certain questions. You just have to input some simple information about your accident and injuries, and the figure is returned immediately.

    We hope this will help you to decide if you want to make a claim, and as not everyone like computers, you can also complete it over the phone with one of our advisors.
