    "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 Newark and Sherwood


    Accidents are very common occurrences in the UK — every year over 3 million of them happen, which is not far off 8,500 accidents every single day of the year.

    If you fall victim to an accident that was not your fault, and in that accident you sustain injuries severe enough to need medical attention, you are probably entitled to make a personal injury claim.

    The accident claims with which a law firm in Newark and Sherwood can help

    There is an endless list of the ways in which accidents can happen, just a few examples being:

    • Road traffic accidents;
    • Slips, trips, and falls;
    • Accidents in schools;
    • Work-related accidents;
    • Food poisoning;
    • Animal attacks;
    • Industrial diseases and conditions;
    • Travel accidents;
    • Farming accidents; and
    • Medical negligence.

    Any type of accident can be the subject of a personal injury claim, providing it happened no more than three years ago and caused injuries that needed medical attention. If this is the situation in which you find yourself, you should consider the option of making a personal injury claim. A law firm in Newark and Sherwood will be happy to discuss this with you.

    The injuries which happen in accidents that were not your fault

    There are literally hundreds of different injuries you could sustain in an accident that was not your fault. Some of the more common ones are:

    • Broken or cracked bones;
    • Facial injuries;
    • Burns and scalds;
    • Loss of limbs;
    • Head and brain injuries;
    • Back and spine injuries;
    • Eye injuries;
    • Internal injuries; and
    • Joint damage.

    The severity of the injuries you have will be accounted for when you make your personal injury claim, as will the impact the injury has had on your life.

    Making a no win no fee claim

    UK law states that if you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else, the guilty party should compensate you for the suffering they have caused. The law also allows personal injury claims to be made using the no win no fee agreement, which is the way in which Accident Advice Helpline operate, as it is the only fair way to make claims accessible to everyone: as you do not have to find any money to start your claim, or if you claim is lost, your financial state doesn’t matter.

    We have been helping victims make their claims for over 14 years, many thousands of whom have received the compensation to which they were entitled after being injured in an accident that was not their own fault.

    On our website, there is a quick way to find an estimate of how much compensation you may be awarded if successful in a claim. It is called the 30-second test, because that’s all the time it takes to find out.

    On our freephone helpline, on 0800 180 4123, you will find friendly and helpful advisors who will be able to answer all your questions about making a personal injury compensation claim. Calling them will put you under no obligation to continue, unless you want to, at which point they will help you all they can.
