Making a claim following an accident is not the first thing that springs to mind. Your priority has to be getting the correct medical attention for both yourself and anyone else involved. Following that, there is the matter of sorting out what will happen with work, family and childcare whilst you are injured. Sorting all these matters can be pretty stressful and often incur costs. Things you can well do without. Ask any personal injury lawyer in Boroughbridge and they will tell you that making a claim is your right by law, so it is something that you should always consider following an accident.

So how do you make a claim? The simplest way is to speak to a personal injury lawyer in Boroughbridge or call Accident Advice Helpline. They will tell you the three things that have to be in place for you to make a successful claim:
- The accident must have happened within the last three years.
- The accident must have been caused by someone else.
- You must have received medical attention
If you can answer yes to all these questions then you have every right to make a claim for compensation for your injuries and any costs resulting from your inability to work.
What do I do now?
All you need to do is call Accident Advice Helpline and talk to one of our friendly advisors. They will be able to explain what you need to do to start making a claim. You could also try our simple 30-second test which will confirm your right to make a claim. You will then be talked through the claims process and what you need to provide to pursue one.
What does it cost me?
The initial call to one of our advisors is free of charge and the advice is offered with no obligation. Legal Aid is no longer available to people making personal injury claims. Your personal injury lawyer in Boroughbridge cannot work for nothing but they will be able to arrange insurances for you that will help with any costs should you lose.
At Accident Advice Helpline all of our solicitors work on a one hundred percent no-win, no-fee* basis so if you should lose your case you will not have to pay your solicitor for the work that he has done. New legislation means that if you win your case you still have to pay twenty five per cent of the court costs. Court costs are different to solicitors fees and have to be paid separately; of course if you win, this will all come out of your eventual award so you will not notice it.
Making a claim can sound daunting but by using the services of an experienced law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline the process becomes far easier and one that thousands of people handle every day. Call us now on 0800 689 0500 (0333 500 0993 from a mobile) and discover what we can do to help you.
