If you have been injured, you may be wondering how you can find a personal injury law company to suit your needs. In the UK the rules of personal injury law are very simple – the law says that if you have been hurt in an accident that was not your fault, then you are entitled to claim compensation.
It doesn’t really matter how you were injured, although most personal injury law firms deal with accidents that fall into the three broad categories of road accidents, accidents at work and slips, trips and falls. Accident Advice Helpline also deal with medical negligence.
We are not a personal injury law company as such – we are much more than that. We are a free and professional legal helpline that operates in partnership with over 190 personal injury law firms up and down the country – meaning that we can offer your case to a much wider spectrum of legal experts if you want to go ahead and make a claim. This increases the chances of your case being accepted and its chance of success.
Compensation law firm
There are a few points that need to be observed if you are considering making a claim for personal injury:
- The accident must have happened within the last three years. There are exceptions to this rule but generally the sooner you are able to bring your personal injury claim, the better.
- Personal injury law dictates that a claimant cannot have been primarily at fault for their accident. This makes perfect sense, of course. In some cases, contributory negligence on the claimant’s behalf may affect their reward – such in the case of a motorcyclist not wearing their helmet when they’re injured.
- You must have sought medical attention – for an injury to warrant an award of compensation under personal injury law it must also have been sufficient to need the attention of a medical professional.
