Unfortunately, the innocent get injured
We are sorry to be the bearers of bad news but it is a sad fact of life that sometimes the innocent get injured. No matter how much you try to do the right thing, whether that’s stopping to let a car out, saying “please” and “thank you” at every available opportunity, or completing your Self Assessment on time – occasionally bad things do happen to good people.
When the innocent get injured, the best thing they can do (after seeking the appropriate medical treatment of course) is contact Accident Advice Helpline to find out if they can make a claim against the less innocent person responsible for their plight.
We are on your side
Regardless of how you, the innocent get injured, here at Accident Advice Helpline we are on your side. We will do all we can to help you get the compensation that you are legally entitled to.
Once you have spoken to our advisers to establish whether or not you can make a claim (or alternatively you can take our 30-second test which will also give you a good idea of how much you could claim) we will arrange for one of our solicitors to be assigned to your case.
All of our solicitors are experts in their field and they work on a no-win, no-fee basis. This means that you will not have to pay a penny up-front to start your legal claim, and nor will you have to pay our fees if you lose your claim for any reason.
If you are the innocent injured in an accident, then we see no reason why you would not be awarded the full amount of compensation due to you.
Our solicitors may arrange for you to be seen by an independent medical expert who will assess your injuries and provide a report putting forward their professional opinion on how long you are likely to take to recover from your injuries. This will help determine the level of compensation that you are entitled to.
Types of accidents
The innocent get injured in a whole variety of different ways, from slips, trips or falls in public places or the work environment, to medical and clinical negligence cases and the development of industrial diseases.
We can also help if you have been injured as a result of a road traffic accident, whether you were the driver of one of the vehicles involved, or if you were a pedestrian, passenger or cyclist. All we need you to do is provide us with as much information regarding your accident as possible, including photographs or sketches of the scene, and details of any eyewitnesses that can attest to what happened. We can do the rest.
Give us a call today on 0800 689 0500 (landline) or from your mobile phone on 0333 500 0993. Our initial advice is free.
