If you have suffered a personal injury in an accident that wasn’t your fault, it’s possible that you may be able to claim compensation. In order to do this you will need to speak to a lawyer to discuss your eligibility and how to proceed. We give you some tips for things to consider below.
Do you qualify?
When dealing with a lawyer you should first try to establish whether or not you qualify for personal injury compensation. For example, in order to be considered for a claim, the accident needs to have been within the last three years (with some flexibility for minors or industrial diseases) and needs to have been someone else’s fault. Make sure you check all of these details before you get in touch.
Unlike some legal cases, making a personal injury claim through Accident Advice Helpline is surprisingly simple. Most claims can actually be processed over the phone, without the need to go to court. You should be aware that the process can take a while and that the time to receive claims can vary.
What are the costs?
The costs for making a personal injury claim through us at Accident Advice Helpline vary, although it may be possible in some instances to have fees recovered through court costs. However, we offer a 100% no win, no fee* policy which means that you won’t have to pay if your claim is unsuccessful.
