    Importance of seeking medical assistance

    It is very important that you seek medical attention for your personal injuries after your accident.

    Keep a note of your symptoms, medical diagnosis and treatment. This information will be very important for your personal injury solicitor when they calculate the amount of compensation you should expect to receive. But do not worry if you do not remember exact details; we understand that medical terminology can be confusing. Your solicitor will gain access to your medical records, with your consent of course, and use the official reports to help win the maximum compensation you deserve.

    If further tests, medical opinions or treatments are required then your personal injury solicitor will assist in arranging this for you.

    Getting the compensation you deserve

    Accident Advice Helpline will help you to win the compensation you deserve. We will provide a specialist personal injury solicitor in your local area who will calculate and negotiate the levels of compensation for the personal injury you have sustained.

    The solicitor will take into account medical reports, your personal statement and financial losses. You will have the chance to say whether you think the levels of compensation for personal injury are fair and acceptable to you.

    Once liability is admitted by the negligent party then negotiating the level of compensation is quite straightforward. Your solicitor may even be able to have an interim payment awarded to you while negotiations continue, thus helping your financial situation.
