Making a road traffic incident claim can be quick and easy when you have the right support behind you. If you were driving your own car at the time of the accident, the chances are that you’ll have plenty of things to organise and resolve, without worrying about a personal injury claim as well; there are the repairs to your vehicle, the insurance claim for the damage and organising alternative transport to go about your daily tasks.
Taking the headache out of your road traffic incident claim
Accident Advice Helpline are a law firm who specialise in personal injury claims. We endeavour to provide simplified access for every UK resident to the specialist legal advice they need when they have been hurt in an accident that was not their fault.
Working with hundreds of solicitors, we will asses your right to a claim, and if we think you stand a good chance of success, we will find you a specialist no win no fee solicitor to act on your behalf. There is nothing to pay to start the claims process, and if you end up being unsuccessful the no win no fee arrangement means there will be no legal bill to pay.
What can you claim for?
Many road traffic accident claims are made for minor yet painful and inconvenient injuries. One of the most common of these is whiplash, which is caused by the swift movement of the head at the point of impact. Whiplash can be very painful. It can mean that the victim has to take a good deal of time off work, and in some cases that they are unable to enjoy hobbies or sports that they previously spent time doing.
As well as this, we often help people who have suffered head injuries, broken bones or cuts and bruises as a result of their accident. No matter how minor or severe your injury is, contact us first and let us help you decide whether you have a claim to make.
How much is it worth?
The compensation amount is worked out as a result of two issues. Firstly there is your injury, which will be assessed by medical professionals for severity. As well as the pain you have suffered, the amount your solicitor asks for in this area will reflect the impact your injury has had on your lifestyle.
The second part of your claim will relate to any out-of-pocket expenses you have suffered as a result of the accident. If you have lost earnings through time off, paid out money for additional childcare or funded travelling costs for medical appointments, all of this can be claimed back in a successful case. Keep hold of your receipts and invoices, as this will make it much easier to come up with an accurate figure for your reimbursement.
