    "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

    Lawyer in Middleton St George

    Accidents happen every day across the UK, with some people being very badly hurt and others getting away ‘lightly’, as the saying goes.

    Some are just that – accidents that, try as we might, people cannot avoid BUT, there are accidents that could have been avoided. These are the ones caused by someone else’s negligence or actions.

    If this is the case, you may be able to tap into the vast legal and specialist knowledge of a lawyer in Middleton St George at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Claiming if the accident someone else’s fault

    Car accidents, for example, usually have someone at fault. Occasionally, it as the result of careless driving or even dangerous driving, and the Police may be involved if criminal proceedings are a possibility.

    Even if there are court cases due, if you were not at fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation against the other driver (through their insurance company).

    What about injuries?

    In terms of injuries, you must have been attended a medical professional for treatment, whether this is provided by your own doctor or by the local hospital. You do have to be an emergency admission by ambulance to qualify to make a compensation claim; you can, as they say, be ‘walking wounded’ after your accident.

    Your lawyer will need to know all these details but, if you are worried about confidentiality, don’t be. We work within the very strict parameters of the Data Protection Act.

    When can I make a compensation claim?

    Many people seem to think that a certain amount of time must have passed before a compensation claim with our lawyer can be started but, as you will find out when you call us on 0800 689 0500/0333 500 0993 from a mobile, the sooner you start your claim the better!

    You also need to be aware of the time limit in cases of compensation too; in the case of accidents, you have three years from the date of the accident to make the claim, although this deadline is applied differently to those people seeking compensation for:

    • Industrial disease
    • Accidents or incidents involving children under the age of 18 years
