FAQs about finding personal injury firms
“My friends say that I should see a lawyer but how do I do that?”
Accident Advice Helpline has a national network of many legal partners who can help you with your claim. All you have to do is make the first call and they will help you through the whole process.
“What if I can’t actually claim for my injuries?”
The friendly, professional advisors at Accident Advice Helpline will use a unique 30 second test to assess if you have grounds to make a claim. Even then, there is no obligation for you to go ahead with the claim if you don’t want to.
“Don’t personal injury firms charge expensive legal fees?”
All Accident Advice Helpline legal partners work for you on a no win no fee* basis so you will not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful. If you are successful, the solicitor’s fees can usually be claimed from the other party.
“Will I have to attend lots of appointments with lawyers?”
Very few cases appear in court and the majority of cases are handled over the telephone. You may have to attend one local appointment with a doctor who will complete a medical assessment report.
“How much compensation do personal injury firms get for you?”
Lawyers cannot guarantee the exact amount of compensation that any one person will get because each claim is unique. It will be useful if you can keep a record of any financial loss that you have incurred as a result of the accident. This includes loss of earnings and expenses.
The time taken for each claim to be resolved varies because every case is so different. However, your solicitor will handle your case efficiently and will work hard to get the maximum amount of compensation that they can for you.
