Not relishing a day in court and being made to suffer all over again?
Every year Accident Advice Helpline deals with around 300,000 enquiries concerning personal injury claims. The personal injury claim team in Rochdale are one of around 200 such offices around the UK that belong to Accident Advice Helpline’s network.
At present most cases can be dealt with over the telephone, provided the claimant has all the relevant details on hand and can forward all important documents such as receipts and invoices pertaining to expenses such as trips to the doctor’s and hospitals, costs of private medical care and the names and addresses of everyone involved in the case, be it as a witness to the accident or as the party who is to blame for the personal injury.
Up to now most claimants did not have to go to court, when their personal injury case was being dealt with. However, the present government is trying to crack down on fraudulent claims such as alleged neck injuries caused by whiplash, which are typically the result of traffic accidents. Unfortunately, this global sweep would force genuine victims of accidents to pursue their case at a small claims court without the representation of a solicitor. Victims would have to argue their case against the expert knowledge of an insurance lawyer.
Calling the personal injury claims team in Rochdale for Advice
According to data collected by the Financial Conduct Authority, claimants of personal injury cases who dealt with insurers on their own without the help of an expert legal advisor have received on average just 50% of the compensation they were entitled to. The government’s current proposal is therefore apt to penalise victims and help insurance companies to save money rather than help people who have suffered personal injuries as a result of somebody else’s fault.
- The personal injury claims advisor assigned to your case will work on a no win no fee basis and the entire Accident Advice Helpline network is regulated and monitored by the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority, meaning you are in safe, professional hands.
- It’s best to contact several different legal experts to see which one will be best for your case, but whatever your choice, rest assured calling the personal injury claim advisors at Accident Advice Helpline will provide you with honest, professional advice 24/7 every day of the year and your call is free.
- Esther Rantzen, who is Accident Advice Helpline’s patron, will undoubtedly champion the cause of personal injury victims and consumers, if the government presses ahead with the proposal, which is not suited to weed out fraudulent claims but leaves the door wide open to less than scrupulous claims management companies and insurers unwilling to pay out fair compensation amounts to personal injury victims.
If you think you have a qualifying claim and your personal injury occurred within the last 3 years, don’t delay making a claim. Why not call the personal injury claims team in Rochdale or any of the other Accident Advice Helpline offices today to find out more?
