One of the biggest benefits of claiming with Accident Advice Helpline has to be our in-house legal team. You gain access to a bank of technical knowledge and expertise regarding personal injury law, and can have confidence that such an important action is being dealt with professionally.
We don’t outsource any of our legal work at Accident Advice Helpline, and your solicitor from Benchley will be able to undertake negotiations with the negligent third party.
Who is eligible to make a personal injury claim?
In order to be eligible, you will need to meet three main requirements:
- You have to start your claim within three years of the accident
- You must have had your injuries medically treated around the time of the accident
- You must not have been to blame
Sometimes injuries are treated at the accident scene, but you can also be assessed and treated at your local Accident and Emergency department or GP’s surgery. The important point is that treatment must be received from a medical professional, as they will need to supply a report on the extent of your injuries as part of your case evidence.
Accident Advice Helpline’s professional advisors
When you call our helpline, you’ll get through to one of our friendly and knowledgeable advice team. The first thing we will need to consider is your eligibility, so this will be confirmed and you’ll be able to ask as many questions as you need about what it means to claim compensation.
Our advisors can even offer you an estimate of your award, based on other cases that we have successfully negotiated. This often helps people to decide whether or not claiming is going to be worthwhile, and allows them to make an informed decision.
Looking for a solicitor in Benchley?
Once you decide to continue with a claim, you will be put in contact with the specialist solicitor who will process your case. It is a good idea to keep all paperwork relating to the incident in a safe place that is easily accessible, as you’ll need to send in various pieces of evidence to support your claim.
These might include, but are not limited to the following:
- Witness statements
- Your own written account of what happened
- Medical assessments
- Police reports
Sometimes our customers are required to undergo an additional assessment of their injuries, but your personal injury solicitor will be able to advise on whether this is necessary in your case.
Although we do not have a local injury solicitor in Benchley we can still represent you and your claim. This is because we are a national firm that works across the whole of the UK. So if you need an injury solicitor in Benchley look no further than our expert service.
