    "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 Sherborne


    No matter where you’re located or what you do for a living, if you’re injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault then you have a right to claim the compensation that you deserve to help you get your life back on track.

    So, if you’ve been injured in a trip, fall, road accident or workplace incident that was caused by someone else’s carelessness or negligence, here are the four steps that you need to follow to get the compensation that you’re due.

    1. Check that your claim is eligible

    If you’ve suffered an injury in an accident that wasn’t your fault, and you think that you have grounds to make a personal injury claim, the very first thing that you need to do is check whether or not your claim is eligible. The easiest way to do this is to use the 30-second test on the Accident Advice Helpline website. This will give you a quick and accurate indication of whether or not your claim is worth pursuing, and of the level of compensation that you could expect to receive if successful.

    2. Find a lawyer in Sherborne to represent you

    If you’ve been injured in a small town like Sherborne, it can be tempting to go to your local lawyer in Sherborne when making a personal accident claim. Though you may find an experienced lawyer, your chances of success will be greatly enhanced if you choose a company with experience, resources and expertise like Accident Advice Helpline.

    3. Gather your evidence

    When making any sort of personal injury claim, you need to gather together the evidence that supports your case and proves the carelessness or negligence of the other party. If you’re unsure what evidence you need, talk to your lawyer in Sherborne or call our friendly and professional team for expert advice.
