    "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 Shaftesbury


    Luckily, it’s not everyday that we suffer an injury as the result of an accident. However, this means that when accidents do happen, most of us don’t know where to begin when making a personal injury claim.

    In fact, many people are completely unfamiliar with the process involved, leaving those injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault often feeling confused and overwhelmed.

    Here at Accident Advice Helpline we think that making a claim is easier than you think, especially if you get the right advice and find the right firm to represent you.

    How to make a personal injury claim

    The first thing that you’ll need to do when making a personal injury claim is find a law firm to represent you.

    You can either use a local lawyer in Shaftesbury, or the town nearest to you, or you can use the services of an established national law firm.

    The easiest way to find either a lawyer in Shaftesbury or any other area is to complete an online search for a reliable and experienced personal injury law firm.

    Local lawyer in Shaftesbury or a national firm?

    The main problem with using a local lawyer in Shaftesbury compared to a national law firm is that small companies can lack the expertise, resources and experience to deal with your claim efficiently.

    National firms like Accident Advice Helpline on the other hand, specialise in personal injury claims and have a wealth of experience dealing with injuries caused in a huge variety of accidents and circumstances.

    Finding out if you are eligible

    Once you’ve found a firm to represent you, you’ll need to check with them whether or not your case is eligible.

    Though your law firm will have to check all of the circumstances of your case thoroughly, you can get a good idea of the eligibility of your case by using the 30-second test on our website.This will tell you whether your claim is worth pursuing and how much compensation you could expect to receive if your case were to be successful.

    If you are eligible to make a claim, Accident Advice Helpline will help make the process as easy as possible, and as we have a No Win, No Fee policy, you can pursue your case with confidence and with the support that you need.
