    "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."

    Lawyer in Chippenham

    Your Accident Advice Helpline lawyer in Chippenham can help you with several aspects of your personal injury claim. They will be the legal experts in the process and will guide you through the legalities of the personal injury system. Accident Advice Helpline make it as easy as they can for you by providing a 24/7 hotline and teams of highly trained, professional advisers.

    However, they cannot win the claim for you by themselves. They will negotiate hard to get you the highest levels of compensation that they can but there will inevitably have to be some input from yourself. Here are the three basic stages of a personal injury claim and the part that you and your personal injury lawyer in Chippenham will play at each stage.

    Finding a personal injury lawyer in Chippenham – stage one

    At this early stage of the claims process your personal injury lawyer in Chippenham will be trying to establish that you have grounds to make a personal injury claim. They have the legal expertise to distinguish between legitimate cases and cases that stand no chance of winning.

    Your contribution at this stage is to provide a brief and truthful account of what happened and of what injuries you have suffered. If you wish, this can be started off by taking our unique 30-second test. All you have to do is literally take half a minute to answer the following questions:

    1. Was the accident in which you were injured someone else’s fault?
    2. Was the accident less than three years ago?
    3. Did you receive medical attention for your injuries?
    4. Which part of your body was injured?

    Using a personal injury lawyer in Chippenham – stage two

    This is the stage where your personal injury lawyer has to do the most complicated work. They will be:

    1. Proving that someone caused the accident in which you were hurt – this is the person that you will be claiming the money from.
    2. Proving that you were injured in the accident.

    Your contribution at this stage is to provide the evidence for this stage and the evidence will probably be a combination of your own witness statement, witness statements from others who saw the accident, medical evidence, police reports where necessary, as well as photographs or sketches, CCTV and mobile phone footage.

    Using a personal injury lawyer in Chippenham – stage three

    Towards the end of the claim, your personal injury lawyer will be negotiating exactly how much compensation you will receive. They will be including ‘out of pocket’ expenses in this sum and we will ask you whether you have lost wages or have had any extra bills to pay because you were injured. You contribution to this stage will be to provide the details that your lawyer needs and the proof of your expenses – such as receipts, invoices and wage slips.

    If that sounds acceptable to you, call us today and let’s win your compensation, after all, you deserve it! Call us now on 0800 689 0500 from a landline, and 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
