    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Personal injury lawyer in Beddington


    If you look at personal injury law cases around the world there are some fairly wild stories of bizarre cases and outrageous sums awarded, but if you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer, then it’s important to be a little more realistic.

    Tall stories

    Some of the most extreme personal injury cases come from the US and many of these might tend to be nothing more than urban myths which feed into our preconceptions about Americans and their predilection for litigation.

    One such is the case of an elderly woman who had her lip burnt by a coffee at McDonalds. She successfully sued for compensation and was awarded millions. There were further damages inflicted on McDonalds for having the temerity to fight the case and she walked away a rich woman.

    Albeit with a slightly burnt lip.

    Back to reality

    Such stories may or may not be real. But they are circulating the internet and are taken as true by the majority of people who read them. But over here in the UK, the rules surrounding personal injury law are a little more realistic.

    First of all, the tables often seem stacked against the claimant. You will have to demonstrate that your accident has had a negative affect on your life and also that it was the fault of the defendant.

    There is also no legal aid available to help you fight your case. So you’ll have to pay for the law suit yourself at some point. However, even here, there is some cause for hope because at Accident Advice Helpline, our mission is to help you find a personal injury lawyer who can help you make a claim on a no win no fee basis.

    What is no win no fee

    No win no fee emerged after the government removed legal aid from all personal injury claims. It represents a safety net for anyone who is thinking of making a claim. If you lose your case for any reason at all then your law firm will waive the fee.

    It is important in keeping the legal system open to everyone regardless of means and it is something that has been at the heart of what we do ever since we started and it will continue to be in the future.
