The large village of Effingham in the Borough of Guildford, Surrey, lies just four miles from the M25 motorway. With such excellent transport links into London, it’s no surprise that much of the population here commutes to work in the capital, and there’s a railway station north of the village with regular trains to London Waterloo. However, if you’re looking for a personal injury lawyer in Effingham then you might want to think again. London lawyers can often mean London prices, and the last thing you want after an accident is to end up paying extortionate legal fees, or worse, being unable to afford to make a claim because of legal fees.
So what if I can’t afford a personal injury lawyer in Effingham?
Help is at hand for those who are worried about finding an affordable personal injury lawyer in Effingham. Accident Advice Helpline covers the whole of the UK and we offer a 100% no-win, no-fee service. This means there are absolutely no upfront fees to pay and you will only pay if your claim is successful – at which time the fees payable will be deducted from your settlement. Anybody who has been injured should be able to afford to make a claim, and you have three years from the date of your accident in which to do so.
Claiming compensation after being injured
Many people worry that they don’t have any evidence of their accident or injury. There are some things you can do after your accident which could help improve the chances of your claim being successful, although you should still be able to make a claim even if you’re unable to do these things:
- Take photographs of the scene of your accident
- Photograph your injuries
- Try to get contact details and statements from any witnesses
- Report your accident to management or a relevant person, if applicable
- Seek medical attention as soon as possible after your accident
Even if you’re unable to take photos of your accident and injuries, we can still help you to make a claim, provided you sought medical attention for your injuries.
How have you been injured?
It may be that you have sustained minor injuries after a slip or trip on damaged pavement, such as a sprained ankle or wrist. Whiplash suffered in a car accident is another common injury that we have handled thousands of claims for. In some cases, your injuries may be much more serious and you may be left unable to work or live life to the full. In cases like these, you could be eligible to receive a far larger sum in personal injury compensation, to reflect the impact your injuries have had on your quality of life both now and in the future.
