    "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."

    Finding a personal injury lawyer can be quite a challenge and it’s made all the more so by occasional scams that can target people making a claim. In this article we’ll look at some of the scams taking place and how they can be avoided.

    Accident on purpose

    One of the more alarming scams taking place is for people to deliberately cause people to crash into them. They might drive very slowly, or erratically and suddenly turn into another car. They might stop very suddenly in the hope that people might crash into them.

    What they are hoping to do is convince the courts and indeed the other driver that they should have been able to stop despite the sudden move and as a result are responsible for the accident. But if you’re wise to this then you can avoid the scam and can try to claim for criminal injury against them.

    Assessing a claim

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re very careful to avoid making a claim for a client if we think it will be unsuccessful. If we do not help you win a case, we do not get paid and that’s because we work on the basic principal of no win no fee. This means that if you don’t win your case, you won’t owe us a single penny.

    We can also tell you if you’ve been a victim of one of these scams. We can let you know what your rights are and how you can go about finding a personal injury lawyer who can help you launch a claim for these people. In this instance, you may well be claiming for criminal injury which could entail a larger compensation fee because the accident was caused on purpose – and indeed sought to endanger your life and defraud you at the same time.

    Making these cases work demands a certain amount of expertise so it’s important to know that your law firm has what it takes to take on these people. They do this for a living and are just looking for any mistakes you might make.

    However, if you do lose then you have the comfort of knowing that we work on a no win no fee basis, so if you don’t win, you don’t pay.

    We do not have a personal injury lawyer in Belsize Park working directly for us but this doesn’t matter, we can still help you claim as we are a national injury law firm that covers all areas of the UK. So if you need a personal injury lawyer in Belsize Park or anyway make us your first point of call.
