North East Lincolnshire personal injury claims
Accident Advice Helpline exists solely to help individuals make North East Lincolnshire personal injury claims. You may be entitled to make such a claim if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault.
When it comes to making North East Lincolnshire personal injury claims, there are certain criteria that need to be met. This is to ensure that you are genuinely eligible to be making a claim against someone.
The easiest way to find out whether or not you meet this eligibility, and whether one of our North East Lincolnshire personal injury claims solicitors will be able to help you with your claim, is to take our 30 second test.
This simple and easy to use test can be found on our website. We will just need you to answer some basic questions about your accident and provide us with some information about the injury, or injuries you have suffered. We will then be able to use this information to determine whether or not you are eligible to make a claim. We can also give you a good idea of how much that claim might be worth, should you decide to pursue it.
Who can we help?
Over the years, our North East Lincolnshire personal injury claims solicitors have worked on various cases.

We have helped individuals in every conceivable profession including footballers, lawyers and zoo keepers.

The only time we may not be able to assist is if you are a minor.
Minors, i.e. anyone under the age of 18, are not able to initiate legal proceedings in their own name. However, when it comes to making North East Lincolnshire personal injury claims there are some options available to them and their families.
Firstly, you can appoint someone to act as a litigation friend. This person will be able to act as a proxy for the injured minor and handle the legal side of the claim via a solicitor. This means that a claim can progress immediately. Any money that is awarded in terms of compensation will be held for the minor until they reach the age of 18.
Alternatively, the minor may wait until they are 18 at which point they can make a claim for themselves. The three year rule does not apply to minors until they reach 18, at which point they have until their 21st birthday to initiate their claim.
