    "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 management

    What is injury management?

    If you have been involved in an accident that has resulted in an injury, you may have been provided with a specific injury management approach by your doctor or other healthcare professional. For example, if you have broken your leg, you may have a planned approach to regaining full use of your leg once more; perhaps on crutches initially, followed by gradually using your leg to build up muscle tone and strength. A physiotherapist may also have provided you with specific exercises to follow on a daily basis, increasing in difficulty as your strength returns.

    Alternatively, injury management may refer to the management of pain – using medication to keep your physical suffering at a level where you can function in your daily life. This may be the case if you have a bad back or any other chronic condition that cannot be alleviated entirely.

    If your accident had resulted in an injury management plan, it may have caused significant disruption to your life, whether short or long-term. If this is the case, it is worth looking into compensation to in some way recompense for the problems you have faced as a result of the accident.

    Are you eligible to make a claim?

    The easiest way to check your eligibility to receive compensation is by using an online tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second calculator. If you are entitled to compensation, this will also return an approximate compensation figure, and all within half a minute.

    In most circumstances, you will need to fulfil the following criteria in order to make a claim:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • You accident must have occurred within the past three years
    • It must have been someone else’s fault
    • You will have needed medical attention as a result

    If you fit into these guidelines, then you will probably be able to make a claim. If this is the case, you should begin the process as soon as possible.

    How do you make a claim for compensation?

    Claiming for compensation is not a difficult process, nor one that will cause undue stress or result in a great deal of fuss. A specialist law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline is in place to ensure that making a claim is as easy as possible. You should not miss out on your compensation entitlement because you are put off by the whole process.

    Once you have made contact with Accident Advice Helpline, one of our friendly, trained advisers will take the details relating to your accident, including injury management advice given by your doctor, and refer this to one of our expert solicitors. They will work hard on your behalf, under the no-win, no-fee* agreement.

    Most claims can be processed entirely via the telephone, making it convenient and simple for you. To get in touch, simply dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline, or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile phone.
