The name “Tow Law” is from the Old English tot hlaw which means “lookout mound.” The modern Tow Law is a small town in County Durham. The local scenery has been changed by the addition of a wind farm which consists of 53m high wind turbines. Other than that, the town is just the same as any small town in the region and offers its inhabitants a selection of shops and local amenities.There is not a great presence when it comes to injury solicitors in Tow Law, and walking the High Street will not reap many benefits if you are looking for somewhere to start a personal injury claim following an accident.
Where to find injury solicitors in Tow Law
One of the best places to start looking is the local phone book, or even the internet, but Tow Law residents will probably find that they need to travel into Durham itself to see a range of services. Many people do not realise that there is no need to use a local legal firm to make a claim for injury compensation. So if you have had problems locating the injury solicitors in Tow Law there are other options open to you.
What other options are there?
One of the options available to you is to contact Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500; if you only have a mobile then you can call 0333 500 0993. The lines are open all the time to help people in the same situation as yourself.
One of the first things that one of the friendly, trained advisers will do is complete a 30-second test, which will enable them to confirm that you are entitled to make a compensation claim. All of our solicitors operate on a no-win, no-fee basis and as a company we have over 17 years’ experience in the personal injury field. We are also proud to have the patronage of Dame Esther Rantzen who has campaigned tirelessly for consumer rights in the United Kingdom for many years.
How do I know if I can make a claim?
The current law states that to make a claim following an accident you must satisfy the following conditions:
- The Accident must have taken place within three years of the start of the claim.
- The Accident must have been a result of someone else’s negligence; this includes indirect actions.
- You must have suffered a personal injury as a result.
To enforce your claim you will need to provide witnesses or an official accident report; photographs are always useful and you may also need to attend a medical assessment with a doctor of your solicitor’s choice. Even if you are dealing with a national company and not the injury solicitors in Tow Law your appointment will be made locally and the rest of your claim can be handled totally via the telephone.
If you have any more questions about personal injury claims and how to make one call us today and find out exactly how Accident Advice Helpline can help you.
