    "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 Southend


    Finding a good lawyer in Southend can be tricky. While the Essex seaside resort has a large and well-established legal sector, many local solicitors will not be specialists in dealing with personal injury claims. When you have been hurt in accident you have every right to feel angry, and instructing a lawyer in Southend can be a very smart move.

    However, why should you limit yourself to law firms in just one town? You deserve a lawyer who can deal with your case in the best possible way, and their locality should be the least of your worries.

    What’s the alternative to a lawyer in Southend?

    Using a national firm that is experienced in assisting people wanting to make compensation claims is often a much smarter move than simply going through the phonebook and picking a lawyer in Southend because they are based close to home.

    What if I’m not sure about making a claim?

    Accident Advice Helpline provide a freephone number and the information offered by our friendly advisers carries no obligation, so even if you’re unsure about your case’s validity it costs you absolutely nothing to give us a call. Who knows? It could lead to you receiving a substantial amount in compensation.

    As well as wondering whether you have a genuine claim, we also understand that you may be worried about costs. For this reason, we represent all our clients on a no win no fee basis. This means that we only get paid if you do.

    What conditions are there for making a claim?

    In order to take your case further and get you the compensation you deserve, we have three main preliminary conditions. Firstly, your accident must have occurred in the past three years. Secondly, it must have been severe enough for you to have received medical treatment. Finally, it must not have been your own fault. Examples of successful accident claims include road traffic accidents, medical negligence cases, trips and falls in public places, and injuries sustained in the workplace.

    On top of compensation for the pain you have suffered, a good legal firm can also win you money for things such as lost income, additional medical bills and unexpected expenses, such as child care, while you recovered from your injuries. If you want an initial idea of whether your claim qualifies, then please take our 30-second test. In just half a minute, this handy tool will look at your circumstances and give you a calculation of what level of compensation may be available.

    If you want to discuss your accident with an adviser then dial 0800 689 0500 from your land line, or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile.
