Many of us have had an accident. Indeed, it’s difficult to go through life without having one! Of course, a lot of these are pretty harmless accidents – and they are genuine no-fault accidents that you can just put down to experience.
Sadly, there are other accidents. These are caused by someone else, whether deliberately or through failure to do something to prevent them, and they result in your being injured.
Solicitors can help
If you get injured in an accident caused by someone else, you can claim compensation. It could be a car accident, in which someone drives into you, writing off your car and causing you whiplash or other injuries; it might be an industrial accident, where something happens at work to cause you injury.
Whatever the case, provided it was someone else’s fault, a claim can be made. If you wish, you can check your eligibility to claim by taking our 30-second test, on our free compensation calculator.
Alternatively, you can just call Accident Advice Helpline straight away.Open Claim Calculator

What will happen?
Our solicitors will pursue your claim. If you win, you will be paid a sum of money which consists of an element for the accident and injury itself, plus an element to reimburse you for the expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident.
Examples of expenses include home helps, child minders, taxi and bus fares, and prescriptions. This is by no means an exhaustive list; if in doubt, keep the receipt, and our solicitors will decide whether or not it is relevant to your claim.
Normally, claims must be made within three years of the date of the accident. This deadline is extended in the case of industrial disease claims, and in claims where the injured party was a minor at the time.
If you don’t win your case, this is obviously an unfortunate outcome. But you can rest assured that all our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis.
You probably won’t have to go to court, because most claims can be settled entirely by phone on your behalf. But you will need to attend one additional medical assessment in order for your claim to proceed.
