    Personal injury advertising


    There are a huge number of adverts on the TV, radio and internet for personal injury solicitors and claims management law firms. It is difficult to sort out the myths from the facts and chose a company that is right for your claim. If you find yourself in this situation, the following straightforward advice will help.

    The myths and truths about personal injury advertising

    All claims management law firms are the same – MYTH

    Personal injury advertising sometimes makes it seem as if all claims management law firms are the same, but they are not. Some firms, like Accident Advice Helpline have been established for a long time; 10 years in fact. Also, Accident Advice Helpline have the backing of trusted TV consumer champion Esther Rantzen.

    You can never get hold of a claims management law firm when you need to – MYTH

    Accident Advice Helpline’s phone line is answered 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Their friendly, professional advisers are waiting to talk to you.

    Accident Advice Helpline has a quick way of working out which claims are likely to be successful – TRUE

    The experienced claims advisers at Accident Advice Helpline will use their unique 30-second test to assess whether your claim is likely to be successful. However, you can still decide whether you want to proceed with the claim or not.

    You will have to pay expensive legal fees up front – MYTH

    You may have heard the term “no win no fee” in personal injury advertising. This means that if your case is not successful you do not pay a thing in solicitor fees. All Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a no win no fee basis.

    You will definitely have to appear in court – MYTH

    Most claims can be dealt with over the telephone and very few cases actually end up in court. However, each case is different and no-one can guarantee the exact amount of money that you will get, or the amount of time that it will take to settle your claim. It is likely that you will be required to attend one appointment with a doctor for a medical assessment. Despite what some personal injury advertising may suggest, it is not possible to absolutely guarantee how much money you will get, or how long your claim will take to be settled, because every injury and every claimant is unique.
