If you have suffered injuries in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may well be legally entitled to claim compensation. It’s a shocking statistic that seven in ten eligible people never claim what they are entitled to. If you think you may have a good case for compensation or are wondering what claiming with a lawyer might involve, read on to find out more.
Are you entitled to compensation?
To establish this, we need to assess your accident and the circumstances surrounding it. You can find this out quickly and easily with the 30 second test on our website. Alternatively, you can call us any time. Our helpline is open round the clock, seven days a week. All of our advisors are friendly and sympathetic and will help you assess whether it would be worth you making a claim.
Making a claim
- Your accident must have happened within the last three years;
- You must have had to seek medical treatment as a result;
- The accident must have been someone else’s fault – either because they were negligent or careless, or even committed a criminal act.
Accident Advice Helpline has well over ten years of experience at handling personal injury cases, so we have a lot of expertise in dealing with these types of claims. We’ll assess your case and tell you if we think you have a good claim. We will also give you an idea of the amount you could receive for your injuries and costs relating to the accident. This will only be an indication, but the final amount you receive may include:
- A payment for the injury itself
- Loss of earnings
- Prescription costs
- Transport costs
- Any cost relating to childcare or help around the home because of your accident.
There is no obligation to make a claim if you don’t want to. But if you do, our staff can put you in touch with the best lawyer to take your case forward. If you do go ahead:
- We won’t ask you for any money to start your claim;
- All of our lawyers work on a no-win, no-fee basis.

Your lawyer will represent you throughout your case. He or she will aim to negotiate a settlement of your claim with all the involved parties. We may ask you to attend one additional medical assessment to provide supporting evidence for your claim. However, very often we find that most cases can be processed entirely by telephone so you may not even have to appear in court.
So don’t be one of the people who miss out on compensation they are legally entitled to. Contact us today and get a lawyer from Accident Advice on your side. You can call us today using these numbers 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
