Lawyer in Skelmersdale


Unless you have a legal degree of your own or have previous experience dealing with personal injury claims, without expert advice it can be very difficult to know whether or not your claim is eligible for compensation and whether or not it’s worth pursuing. Though individual circumstances make every case different, there are some general rules and guidelines that you can apply to see whether you’re eligible for compensation, so before you begin making your claim, take a quick look at the criteria below and see what applies to you.

How will my lawyer in Skelmersdale decide if my case is eligible or not?

Whether you use a respected national law firm like the Accident Advice Helpline or a local lawyer in Skelmersdale, they should use the same guidelines to decide whether or not your case is worth pursuing. If you want to get a quick indication of your eligibility, use the 30-second test on the AAH website or call our 24/7 advice line to find out more.

Time limit

Whether you choose a regional lawyer in Skelmersdale or a specialist law firm, one of the first things they will do is look at the time frame of your accident. If is was more than three years ago, you may not be able to seek compensation, however if you were under 18 years old at the time or you have suffered as the result of industrial disease, this time limit may not apply so contact your legal representation to be sure.


As long as the accident in which you were injured was someone else’s fault, you should be able to make a personal injury claim. This could include a car accident that was caused by another driver, a trip or fall caused by poorly laid or poorly maintained flooring, or an accident at work that could have been avoided.


In order to achieve a successful outcome in your personal injury claim, you’ll need to be able to prove that the accident was caused by another person’s negligence or carelessness and that you were injured as a result. As the Accident Advice Helpline is staffed by highly trained and experienced staff, you can call us and get expert advice if you’re unsure exactly what evidence you need or you want to find out what else could be involved in making a claim.
