Making the decision about whether to start a road accident claim can be a stressful and worrying time. You need to get as much information at this time as you possibly can. One of the main considerations is that you don’t want to pay expensive legal fees up front. Ideally, you need some no obligation, simple information. Thankfully, it is possible to find out whether your claim is likely to succeed and to estimate how much money you will receive. Believe it or not, this information is quite easy to get hold of! A personal injury law firm called Accident Advice Helpline has a unique 30 second test which works out which compensation claims are likely to be successful. They also have a road accident claim calculator which estimates the value of compensation that you will get. Accident Advice Helpline is one of the most experienced personal injury law firms in the UK, backed fully by the TV personality Esther Rantzen.
How to access the road accident claim calculator
Because they are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you can call Accident Advice Helpline anytime that is convenient for you. It’s very simple to use the unique 30 second test to assess firstly if you have grounds to make a claim. All you have to do is provide a few simple details about yourself, the road accident and the injury or injuries that you have suffered. It is important to remember that there is no obligation for you to go ahead with the claim at this stage if you don’t want to. This advice is without obligation.
Solicitors working with the road accident claim calculator
Accident Advice Helpline has a national network of hundreds of solicitors who will be able to guide you through your road accident claim. They will co-ordinate your claim and deal with the paperwork with the other party.
Every single one of the solicitors will work hard for you on a no win no fee* basis. Therefore, you will not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful. If you are successful, the fees will be claimed back from the other (losing) party.
Handling a claim under the road accident claim calculator
Handling the claim is carried out by your solicitor; in fact you have to do very little at all. It is highly unlikely that you will have to appear in court. Most cases are handled over the telephone. There may be one appointment with a doctor for a medical assessment.
Obviously, the road accident claim calculator does not guarantee the exact amount of compensation that you will get. This is because each case is different. The time taken for each claim to be resolved varies as well.
Call Accident Advice Helpline on their freephone numbers 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
