Starting a claim with Accident Advice Helpline
The best way to start a claim is to phone our helpline. You’ll be able to speak to one of our friendly advisors who can provide all the information you need to decide whether claiming is the right thing to do.
As well as getting the answers to all your questions, you’ll also be able to obtain an estimate of the compensation, which is often the deciding factor when it comes to claiming. It gives you an idea of whether taking legal action in this way will be worthwhile.
Make a claim for a public transport accident in Northumberland
We have a range of systems and procedures in place to simplify your claims experience, including:
- An online compensation calculator known as the 30-second test, that offers an estimated figure based on previous similar cases that we have successfully processed.
- A method of funding your claim called ‘no win, no fee*.’ This makes it much easier to commence a compensation claim, as no legal fees are due in advance.
- Video testimonials that let you see and hear happy customers talking about their claims experience with us
- Claims processed by telephone so that you do not need to go to court in most cases.
When put together, these services add value to those provided by our in-house team of legal specialists, and result in a claiming experience that is as stress-free as possible.
Are you eligible?
To be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation, you need to meet certain conditions. The claim must be started within three years of the accident, and must not have been your fault.
Additionally, you need to have received medical treatment for your injuries, either at the accident scene or soon afterwards. This could be at your local hospital or GP surgery. If you meet these three main criteria for claiming, give our helpline advisors a call and we can confirm that you have a legitimate claim.
It is a good idea to take your time when deciding whether to claim, but also be mindful of the three-year time limit that is applied to most personal injury claims. If you want to clarify any information, or simply start a claim for your public transport accident in Northumberland, just call us on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 now.
