    Road Injury Claims


    How to make road injury claims – the facts

    Road injuries are injuries that you have suffered in an accident on the roads. They can affect any part of the body and range in severity. If you have been involved in a road accident that was not your fault you may be able to claim compensation for your injury and all the pain, stress and inconvenience. Personal injury law firm Accident Advice Helpline can help you with this. They will use a unique 30 second test to assess whether you are likely to get any compensation. You can make road injury claims up to three years after the accident happened.

    How to make road injury claims and not pay legal expenses up front

    You make the decision whether to proceed with the claim or not. However, if you do proceed, Accident Advice Helpline will not require legal fees up front. This is because we work with hundreds of solicitors who all operate on a no win no fee* basis. This is an ideal system for people like you. If your claim is not successful (you lose), you will pay nothing. If you are awarded compensation (you win), your legal fees will be recovered from the losing side.

    How to take the stress out of road injury claims

    To avoid any further stress, call the friendly and professional advisors at Accident Advice Helpline any time of the day or night, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The company has over a decade of experience in the business so you can relax. They also have the backing of consumer champion and TV personality Esther Rantzen. Their solicitors have wide experience in claiming compensation. Your solicitor will handle all the stressful parts for you. It is likely that your claim will be handled over the telephone and very few cases end up in court.

    How to make road injury claims – keeping records

    The majority of people actually lose money as a result of a road injury. Maybe you have lost wages, overtime payments, on-call fees, bonuses etc. Also, you may have had to pay travelling expenses to visit hospitals or doctors. Have you had to pay someone else to help with household tasks or for childcare? It is important that you keep a careful record of all this to show to your solicitor. However, Accident Advice Helpline cannot guarantee the exact amount of compensation that you will get for your injuries or the length of time that your particular case will take to resolve.

    In most cases a road injury claim will be handled over the telephone and very few cases actually get to court. It would be useful to have a record of any treatment and hospital visits that you have made so that you can tell the local doctor who prepares your medical assessment report.
