It’s said that the town of Barking, situated in the London borough of Barking and Dagenham, was the place where the phrase ‘barking mad’ originated, as allegedly an insane asylum once existed in the area. Whether this is actually true or not remains to be seen, but Barking is currently undergoing regeneration and the population here has expanded since the 20th century. With that said, if it’s a lawyer in Barking you are after, you might find it tricky to source a specialist personal injury lawyer happy to provide a no-win, no-fee service. Accident Advice Helpline could help you with your claim and we don’t charge any upfront fees – our professional personal injury lawyers have over 16 years’ experience and work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis.
Why might you need a lawyer in Barking?
Finding a lawyer in Barking may become important if you have been injured in an accident at work or in a public place, or even if you have sustained injuries in a road traffic accident. People have made claims in the past for everything from whiplash to food poisoning and serious, life-changing head injuries. But even if your injuries are minor or if you have sustained emotional rather than physical trauma, you may still be able to make a claim. Provided it has been three years or less since your accident and somebody else was to blame, we could help you to get the compensation you are entitled to. Here are just a few examples of the types of claims we have handled over more than 16 years of practice:
- Head injury claims after a road traffic accident or a fall from height
- Broken ankle or wrist claims after a slip or trip in a public place
- Whiplash claims after a car accident
- Food poisoning claims after a meal out at a nice restaurant
- Back injury claims from manual handling accidents at work
- Crush injury claims after an industrial accident at work
These are just a few examples of the types of claims we’ve handled in the past, and we can usually match you with a lawyer with experience handling your type of claim.
What should you do after an accident?
Any evidence you can gather after an accident will be useful, whether that is photographs of your injuries, photos or a sketch of the scene of the accident, showing any hazards, or witness statements from anybody who witnessed your accident. But if you can’t get any of these things, don’t worry. It’s still possible to claim compensation and we will work on your behalf to gather evidence in relation to your claim. You can get in touch with us at any time after your accident – but remember that there is a three-year deadline in place to make a claim – to find out more about claiming and see if you are eligible. Or you can simply call us on 0800 689 0500 (0333 500 0993 from your mobile) for confidential, no-obligation advice at any time.
