    Oldbury compensation


    If you have been in an accident in Oldbury a compensation claim can be crucial in helping you get back on your feet. However, as with many things in life it’s important that you do it in the right way. Here’s a handy guide to how you can improve your chances of securing the full amount of compensation you deserve.

    Common mistakes

    The first point is to avoid some of the common and annoying mistakes that can arise when people are launching personal injury claims. These include not employing an expert lawyer who is specialised in your type of personal injury claims. Some insurance firms will contact you to offer you what seems like an easy route to compensation, but this can be counter productive.

    You will stand less chance of winning than if you choose an expert personal injury solicitor and even if you do win there is a good chance that the level of compensation you receive in the end will not match your expectations.

    Researching your issues

    Before you contact a lawyer, though, it’s important to do your research. The internet is a valuable resource for this, but even then there is no guarantee that you will be get the right information that you need. It could be about another country, out of date, or just plain wrong.

    If you come to Accident Advice Helpline’s website, you’ll find information which is specifically about the type of claim you’re making. It’s written by experts and is constantly maintained to make sure everything is up to date. There is also a free online compensation calculator which we call the 30 second test. You can do this by answering a few quick questions before we give you a quote for how much your claim might be worth.

    Open Claim Calculator

    This is only a rough estimate and shouldn’t be taken as gospel, but it does give you a guide which will allow you to set reasonable expectations as you move forward. This can come in useful if the time comes when the other side makes a settlement offer.

    Help with Oldbury compensation

    If you live in Oldbury a compensation claim might be handled slightly differently than elsewhere if you choose a local law firm. If you take this option you’ll find someone who is located close to you and can offer a certain level of focused personal service, but on the downside there is no guarantee that you’ll have the best possible lawyer or the best possible deal.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we have the ability to help people no matter where they are based in the country – and what’s more we offer the benefit of ‘no win, no fee’ into the bargain.
