Personal Injury Compensation Guide


If you have been in an accident or injury that was not your fault then you could be eligible for compensation. There are various laws and regulations that surround who is entitled to claim compensation, which is why Accident Advice Helpline has provided you with a handy personal injury compensation guide to learn more about the ins and outs of making a claim.

Personal injury compensation guide: The Facts

Personal injury is actually a legal term which relates to an injury that could be to the body (physical) or the mind and emotions (psychological). This is different to an injury to property, which is a completely other law altogether.

In most cases, a personal injury case will go to court and involve a lawsuit against the person or company that was at fault or who was involved in negligence.

Accident Advice Helpline has dealt with personal injury cases for over 15 years, both in terms of physical and psychological injuries.

Personal injury compensation guide: Types of personal injury and eligibility

There are a very large number of different types of personal injury, some which are far more common than others. As an example, some of the cases Accident Advice Helpline deal with on a daily basis are:

  • Assault claims
  • Accidents at work (industrial injury)
  • Accidents on the road (car crashes, road traffic accidents)
  • Accidents in the home or with faulty products (product liability)
  • Slips, trips or falls
  • Medical negligence
  • Being bitten by an animal
  • Plus many others

You can find out whether you are eligible to claim if your injury is not listed in this personal injury compensation guide, by using our simple 30 second test online, or by calling our 24/7 free advice line. 

Personal injury compensation guide: Fees and costs

Legal aid for personal injury claims was scrapped in the UK in the 1990s, meaning that it can cost people a lot of money to get advice or legal help regarding their case. Accident Advice Helpline offers free advice to anybody that requires it, as well as offering absolutely no costs to begin a claim.

All of our legal partners offer a no win no fee* service, so if your case is unsuccessful for any reason, then you do not have to worry about legal fees either.
