    "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

    Law firm in South Somerset


    Are you a South Somerset resident? Did you know that if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim without visiting a law firm in South Somerset?

    Making a claim without a law firm in South Somerset

    You can dispense with the services of a law firm in South Somerset if you want to make a personal injury compensation claim. All you have to do is contact us at Accident Advice Helpline and let us help you with your potential claim.

    The first thing you need to do is to find out if you have a valid claim to make. You can find this out if you speak with one of our expert legal advisers. You can speak with an adviser on the phone and explain how your accident happened. Mention the date it occurred and also find out how long you have left to file your claim if it is valid. You don’t always have three years to file a claim for personal injury.

    When you have finished explaining about your accident, the adviser will tell you if you are eligible to make a claim or not. If you are, you can begin the claims’ process over the phone. You may have to have another medical examination, but you probably won’t have to visit a lawyer’s office.

    What documents do I need to make a claim?

    Your medical records will be needed if you pursue a compensation claim for your injuries. They detail the extent and severity of your injuries and, if your claim is successful, they will be used to assess the amount of compensation you should be awarded in terms of general damages. These are given to compensate you for the pain, distress and suffering caused you by your injuries. They also include loss of amenity or loss of quality of life, if you can no longer do a sport or hobby that you used to enjoy doing before your accident and injuries prevented you.

    If the police were at the scene of your accident, you also need a copy of their accident report. This should prove that you were not to blame for the accident.
