    "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."

    Luckily, being injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault is not something that happens every day. However, this means that when you are involved in a car accident, work accident or slip, trip or fall that was caused by someone else’s negligence, it can be difficult to know where to begin if you choose to claim the compensation that you’re owed. So, if you’re searching the web for information on making a personal injury claim, here are three top tips to help ensure that you achieve a successful outcome.

    Find the right lawyer in Sidcup to represent you

    If you’ve been injured, the first thing that you need to do in order to file a personal injury claim is to find the right lawyer to represent you. Ideally, you should look for an experienced national law firm or local lawyer in Sidcup who has extensive experience in personal injury claims. Look out for a firm that offers no win no fee arrangements, as this will make pursuing your claim a lot more affordable and less financially risky.

    Being prepared

    One of the most important factors in a personal injury claim is the preparation. Firstly, you need to ensure that your case is eligible for compensation. The easiest and quickest 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 idea as to whether or not your claim is worth pursuing.

    Once you’re sure that you’re eligible to make a claim, the next thing  you need to do is gather any evidence which proves that the accident was someone else’s fault. If you’re unsure as to what sort of evidence you need, call us on our freephone advice line and speak to one of our highly trained and experienced advisers for more information.

    Being patient

    Whether you decide to use a local lawyer in Sidcup or an experienced national firm like Accident Advice Helpline, one thing you’ll definitely need is patience. Personal injury claims can be complex and resolving them can take time, so put your trust in your legal team, prepare what evidence you can and then sit back and wait for your case to be processed by our specialist team.
