    "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

    Oldham accident solicitor


    If you have been injured as a result of an accident or incident in the last three years which was not your fault, then one of our accident solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation.

    Contact Accident Advice Helpline today to find out more about the legal process and how you can make a claim.

    Injured in an accident

    When it comes to making a claim for compensation your accident solicitor will need to know precisely what injuries you are suffering with. At the time of initiating a claim it may well be that you are no longer suffering any side effects from your injury and you may have fully recovered. It is therefore important that you have kept a record of how long you were suffering from various symptoms.

    Your accident solicitor will need you to provide confirmation that you are happy for them to gain access to your medical records. These will help to verify the injuries you originally sustained at the time of your accident, and can also help corroborate the extent of the injuries.

    Your Oldham accident solicitor will then arrange for you to meet with an independent medical expert who can assess your injuries in light of your medical history and the accident for which you are making a claim. They will help determine how long you are likely to continue experiencing any side effects from your injury and this will help inform the amount of compensation you are likely to be awarded in terms of pain and suffering caused.

    It is important when you contact Accident Advice Helpline to initiate a claim for compensation that you do so within three years of the date of your accident. This is because legally speaking our accident solicitors can only help you make a claim if your accident falls within this time period. The only way you can make a claim after this deadline is if you were a minor at the time of the accident, and have decided to claim for yourself once you reach legal age. Even then, deadlines and time limits still exist, so it is best not to procrastinate.

    Not at fault

    It is equally important that when you make a claim that the accident in question was not your fault. In order to claim compensation someone has to be liable, and you cannot make a claim against yourself. However, our accident solicitors may still be able to help you win some compensation if you were partly responsible for an accident occurring.
