Accident Advice Helpline is a reputable law firm formed in 2000, and we specialise in dealing with cases of personal injury, including those sustained in traffic accidents. Read on to learn more about what we do, how to make a claim and why you should consider seeking compensation after being injured in a road accident in Macclesfield.
Who is eligible to make a claim?
Under UK law, anyone injured as a result of someone else’s negligence may be entitled to make a claim. This means that if you have been in a road accident in Macclesfield that was in no way your fault, and you can prove the negligence of another party caused it, you could be within your rights to seek compensation. To prove your innocence, you may provide your solicitor with things like copies of the official accident report, witness statements and contact information or even photographs of the accident scene.
Is it expensive to make a claim for a road accident in Macclesfield?
We undertake 100% of cases on a no-win, no-fee basis, meaning there’s no money required upfront to start a claim. We work this way to ensure everyone that wants to make a claim can afford legal representation. There is nothing at all for you to worry about!
How do you connect with a lawyer?
It’s simple to get connected to one of our solicitors. Simply call our helpline, discuss your case with a claims advisor, and we’ll put you in touch with one of our in-house lawyers to get your case underway.
When should you make a compensation claim?
The sooner you make your claim, the sooner you can receive the financial compensation, but you have up until three years after the accident to make a personal injury claim. There are certain exceptions to this rule, though you should take action as soon as possible.
