    Personal injury claims in Bristol

    Making personal injury claims in Bristol can feel like an intimidating task, largely because you don’t know what’s coming. However this article can tell you a few things that you should know to alert you about what’s coming up ahead.

    Common questions

    If you’re looking to make personal injury claims in Bristol, you will most probably have lots of questions. The most obvious of these will be where do I go to get professional help, how much will it cost and what will be my likely compensation claim.

    Getting advice is easy

    If you call Accident Advice Helpline, reliable advice is literally a phone call away. Call our free helpline and one of our expert representatives will tell you everything you need to know. The purpose of this consultation is pretty simple – to make it as easy as possible for you to understand what your rights are and what you need to do in order to make a claim.

    We won’t push you into claiming unless we think you have a genuine chance of winning – and we won’t charge you for this advice. Equally, there is no commitment to continue using our legal services just because you’ve called our helpline.

    Proving your case

    Because your case will be handled by the courts, you have to satisfy the same burden of proof as anyone else will – namely that in order to win, you’ll need to prove that the accident was not your fault and was, instead, the fault of someone else.

    If you fail to comprehensively prove your case, the courts may have no choice but to find against you. To avoid that happening you’ll have to make sure you have plenty of evidence backing up your claim.

    You probably won’t have to go to court

    The thought of appearing in court is enough to turn anyone’s legs to jelly but the good news is that the chances are it won’t get that far.

    Most cases are settled out of court. Insurance companies naturally want to limit their damages and so they will most likely send you a settlement offer. It will be down to you to decide whether or not you want to accept it.

    Estimating compensation

    One of the more popular features on our website is called the 30-second test. This gives you an idea about how much you might receive in compensation if your claim is successful. It’s only a guide but it is nice to set expectations.

    Making personal injury claims in Bristol

    When it comes to making personal injury claims in Bristol, you need to find people who have the right skills for your type of accident. This will increase your chances of winning and getting the full amount of compensation to which you’re entitled.

    So, if you’re looking for personal injury claims in Bristol, give us a call on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
