Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are only able to deal with a select few cases, those cases which meet the legal guidelines. These are the cases which stand the highest chance of success in the legal system. Let us run you through the various ‘checks’ we have in place to ensure that your case has a good chance of success.
The accident must have been within the last three years
The only exception to this rule is if your personal injury claims in Salford involve an industrial disease or if you were injured as a child, and no one claimed for you at the time of the accident.
It is worth noting that we at Accident Advice Helpline do aim to make things as easy as possible for the people that claim through us. We want you to make that claim within three years. We also want to ensure that you recover from your injuries fairly quickly. This is why we deal with the vast majority of cases over the telephone. You can rest and recuperate whilst we deal with the complex legal side of things for you.
The accident must have been the fault of another person
If you wish to make a claim for compensation through Accident Advice Helpline you need to prove, on the balance of probabilities, that the injuries you have suffered from were caused by the negligence or carelessness of another person. Obviously, the proof that will be required will be dependent on the type of claim you are looking to make. Here are a few of the situations that our team deals with on a fairly regular basis:
- Car accidents where the person at fault took their eyes off of the road for a brief second, perhaps to check their phone, or attend to their children in the back of the car.
- Trips and falls at the supermarket, in some cases, this may involve a wet floor, or simply stock left in an inappropriate place.
- Injuries at the workplace caused by falling debris or lack of safety training.
You must have been injured
We are at personal injury law firm, this means that we can only deal with cases where injuries have occurred, although, it does not matter all that much with regards to the type of injury that you have suffered, as long as your injuries needed medical attention.
