The roads in and around Leicestershire are known to be congested all year round, and if you have been involved in an accident in this area, we can let you know whether you are eligible to claim compensation. Being involved in a public transport accident in North West Leicestershire, or anywhere around this region, is a traumatic experience for which you may want to seek justice.
Who can make a claim for compensation with Accident Advice Helpline?
Three eligibility criteria exist for claiming personal injury compensation in the UK:
- There is a three-year timescale in which to make your claim. This is usually from the date of the accident, but in some cases it may be taken from the date your injuries were formally attributed to the incident.
- You are only entitled to take legal action for personal injury against a negligent third party, which means that you must not have been to blame for what happened.
- Your injuries must have been treated either at the scene of the accident or soon after.
Your public transport accident in North West Leicestershire
Accident Advice Helpline undertakes claims on a no win, no fee* basis.
This method of funding personal injury claims was first brought in during the 1990s, when Legal Aid was no longer available to accident victims. There was a need for a funding system whereby their finances were not put at risk from seeking compensation.
No win, no fee* means that you can start your claim without having to pay anything upfront, and offers peace of mind that if your case should be unsuccessful, you will not need to pay your solicitor’s fees. We can reassure you that all our solicitors work on this basis, and that they will pursue your case to get the highest compensation award possible.
What will happen during my claim?
Your case will be dealt with over the phone if possible. This usually means that you will not need to go to court, which is a huge relief for most of our customers. The claim is also speeded up in this way – just one of the systems we have in place at Accident Advice Helpline to simplify the claims process in general.
Some customers have to undergo one more medical assessment to update their case evidence and offer a current view on their medical condition. This can provide a focus for negotiations with the negligent third party, and has been known to result in a larger compensation award.
