Take a look behind the headlines – what will you find?
Headlines in both local and national press scream at us from the front pages, “pedestrian hurt after being hit by bus” is one that has caught our eye recently. And then there are others, that foretell of change, foisted on an unsuspecting person, “taxi driver loses eye”.
Take a look behind these headlines and you will find real people, with real issues and real need for compensation – and here at the Accident Advice Helpline, we have an expert lawyer in Leicester Forest East who could be the right person to help them in their pursuit for compensation.
How would we know if the people behind the headlines, like you, are entitled to compensation?
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, as a law firm with extensive experience of dealing with compensation claims within the realms of personal injury law, we know that for people inexperienced in interpreting the law, may find it difficult to work out if they have a claim or not. As a lawyer in Leicester Forest East will tell you, this means that many people have plunged headlong into a compensation claim only to be disappointed that their claim was ineligible.
Hence, we have simplified this initial assessment process as much as possible, creating a brilliant tool called the Compensation Calculator.
You can use this device online, simply by logging on to our website; you will find it on our home page. Or, alternatively, you can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone where one of our expert, friendly advisers will talk you through the ‘test’. But unlike other assessments, tests and exams we face in life, there is no waiting months for a decision as to how well you have done!
The Compensation Calculator will give an indication of the eligibility of your claim within seconds… rarely does it take longer than a minute!
If it gives a positive indication, your adviser wills suggest a variety of options as to what your nest step could be, including the possibility of referring your case to a specialist lawyer in Leicester Forest East.
But, if the test says no, don’t despair! We can still give you advice as to other legal steps you could take to redress any issue, although on this occasion, it will probably be the case that Accident Advice Helpline and our lawyer in Leicester Forest East will not be able to act on your behalf.
Claiming compensation is about claiming justice, something we don’t see in the headlines too often. If you are hurt, and it was someone else’s fault, you could be entitled to compensation – like the pedestrian and taxi driver at the start of this article.
