    "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."

    Nobody wants to have an accident. Sadly they are things that are often beyond our control. We can slip on a wet floor, trip over an uneven kerb or find ourselves the victim of someone else’s careless driving. Modern pressures mean that we all live our lives a little too much in the fast lane. Clock watching is often the norm for a working person and pressure can lead to lack of concentration which increases the risk of accidents.

    If you do fall foul of an accident, what can you do if the situation was caused by someone other than yourself? You can of course make a compensation claim through a law firm in Dorchester-on-Thames, but you may not find a personal injury specialist with relevant experience locally, so always remember that you can use a national company.

    Finding the right help

    Even if you are lucky and have not had an accident, you cannot have failed to notice the increased presence of compensation claim providers. Companies offering help to accident victims can be found on every street corner in every major town. Even accident and emergency rooms are filled with flyers and pamphlets offering advice. But what is the best route you can take if you feel you have suffered unnecessarily and want to discover if you can make a claim for compensation?

    Points to remember

    You cannot make a claim simply because you have had an accident. There has to be blame attached, which simply means that your misfortune arose as a result of someone else’s negligence. Remember the often used claim motto “No blame no claim.”

    Keep records of all and any medical attention you receive, as this will be needed to process your claim, and the details of anyone who may have witnessed your accident.

    The date of the accident is of course vital, as claims can only be made within three years of the date of occurrence (this can be extended in certain specific circumstances).
