Insurance as we know it today dates back to the great fire of London in 1666. Originating in Pudding Lane, the ensuing blaze engulfed an estimated 13,000 to 15,000 houses. In 1680, the first fire insurance company was established in England to insure brick and timber frame homes. The fire had clearly identified a need and over time led to the establishment of many insurance companies and helped the early development of the Fire Service. It was only much later in the late 1800s that general accident or personal injury insurance became available.
Back in those days you would have to reach for a new quill, fill your ink pot and set to work writing a letter to support your insurance claim. To make things a little more awkward, you might have had to pay someone to write the letter for you, someone with a good education or experience of formal document presentation. Of course, back then there was no Accident Advice Helpline.
Nowadays, with the help of the people at Accident Advice Helpline, you can claim compensation for personal injury without making an insurance claim for all sorts of injuries that may be sustained as the result of a negligent third party.
