    "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."

    Need to find a personal injury lawyer? If so, just follow this simple guide to find out everything you’ll need to know.

    Beginnings

    Many people have accidents and sometimes they are just that but it is always worth doing some research to see whether or not there is scope for a claim. Many people miss out on this chance because their attention gets taken away by more immediate and pressing concerns. However, if you delay then you could find yourself missing out altogether as you will need to make a claim within three years of the accident. So, here’s the checklist which you’ll need to look at.

    Was the accident your fault?

    If it was your fault – even partly – then it may not be possible to make a claim. Sometimes the question of blame is not an easy one to figure out so it’s always worth speaking to an expert to find out. If you call Accident Advice Helpline, one of our representatives will give you their opinion on the question of blame and what it implies for you.

    Was it someone else’s fault?

    If it wasn’t your fault, then by implication it must have been someone else’s fault. You’ll need to prove to the court that the accident was down to a mistake made by the defendant. And as claimant that onus of proof falls squarely on your shoulders.

    How badly were you hurt?

    Compensation is not there for minor bumps and scrapes. The injury must have been bad enough for you to require medical attention. When you go to court you’ll have to show what impact it has had on your quality of life. At the lesser end of the scale will be things such as whiplash which gets better in a short time but is debilitating in the meantime and at the more serious it will be broken bones and permanent disabilities.

    Evidence

    Once you’ve done that you’ll need to gather evidence. Much of this will be down to finding photos of the scene at the time of the accident and getting the contact details of any witnesses. You will not need to contact any witnesses – this will be something for your lawyer to do.

    Looking for a personal injury lawyer in Binley?

    So, now you’re ready to find a personal injury lawyer, but you do need to make sure it’s the right one. You’ll need someone whose own experience is in the type of accident that you’ve suffered as the challenge of making a claim can vary significantly depending on how you’ve been hurt.

    Equally, you’ll need to find someone who works on a no win no fee basis as that will reduce the financial risk of making a claim. At Accident Advice Helpline all our lawyers work on the basis of no win no fee.

    We do not have a personal injury lawyer in Binley 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 Binley or anyway make us your first point of call.

    So, give our team a call now on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
