Accident Advice Helpline often acts as injury lawyers in Northampton for people who have sustained an injury in a recent accident that was not their fault.
The fact that we have a fast responsive website and that we also operate a national telephone helpline service means that we are easily contactable, so things like checking out the validity of any claim you might have; establishing the potential value of that claim and even launching a claim, can all be done in real time.
Accident Advice Helpline and slip, trip and fall Injuries
One of the most common types of injury that we deal with here at Accident Advice Helpline is an injury suffered in a slip, trip or fall accident. Whether the incident takes place in the home, at work, or simply when you’re just out and about, this category of accident is by far the most prolific here in the UK; in fact treatment of injuries resulting from slip, trip and fall accidents cost the NHS over £133 million per year!
In order for an injury caused in a slip, trip and/or fall accident to qualify for financial compensation the blame for the incident must clearly lie with a third party. The accident and injury could be the result of a raised paving stone; a slippery floor that was left wet after cleaning and not properly cordoned off, or a trip hazard which was inadvertently left in place.
While some people might conceivably argue that such an accident is due to the carelessness of the accident victim, the fact of the matter is that if the hazard was not there in the first place, the incident would not have taken place. Therefore the blame clearly lies with a third party and as such (always assuming that the injury was significant enough to have warranted medical attention and that the incident took place within the past three years) should qualify for financial compensation.
Checking out your potential claim with your injury lawyers in Northampton
If you are considering using Accident Advice Helpline as your injury lawyers in Northampton and you are in any doubt about whether or not your claim will be accepted, and if so how much it could be worth, you can either take the 30-second test here on this website, or if you prefer to talk to a real person, you can chat to a member of our customer support team. Either way you should be able to establish in theory whether or not your claim would be considered valid, and get an estimate in terms of the size of the compensation award.
The other thing you will probably be interested to know is that all of the personal injury claims we handle here at Accident Advice Helpline are protected under our no win no fee promise, which means that should your claim fail for one reason or another, you would not be expected to pay our legal fees. This is all part of our service; a service that comes highly recommended by the one and only Dame Esther Rantzen.
