    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Solicitors for accident claims

    If you’ve suffered pain and financial losses due to being in an accident which was not your fault, you have a right to compensation, and you may need the help of one of the UK’s top solicitors for accident claims. The question is – how can you afford to go about getting this help if you are already short of money? You may have heard that Legal Aid – a Government public-funded scheme whereby those on low incomes might get financial help with their legal fees – is hard to come by these days for civil cases.  And you’d be right.

    Legal costs covered

    Legal Aid was largely abolished for personal injury claims in 2000, apart from cases involving medical negligence. However, what has replaced it is the no win, no fee system whereby solicitors for accident claims can take on such cases and the client has the peace of mind knowing that his or her legal costs will be covered throughout the claim process – even if the case fails.

    In the same year Legal Aid was dropped for personal injury claims, Accident Advice Helpline was set up to provide access to justice for victims of non-fault accidents under the no win, no fee agreement.

    Since then we have helped thousands of victims, injured in all types of accidents, claim the compensation to which they are entitled. Our free adviser helpline is open 24/7 and usually within half a minute one of our experts will be able to tell you if you have a valid claim – and even give you an idea of what you may be awarded.

    Main criteria for claiming

    The three main criteria are:

    • That the accident was not your fault
    • You received medical treatment as a result
    • The injury accident happened within the last 3 years

    Accident Advice Helpline can then put you in touch with any one of the many solicitors for accident claims spread throughout the UK who all work on a no win, no fee basis and are backed by professional medical accident experts who can look into each individual case and often provide consultancy in the comfort of your own home.

    When you call us, you are under no obligation to proceed with any claim if you at all feel unsatisfied with any of our advice. Most claims can be processed over the phone and although we can’t guarantee how much you’ll receive at the outset, our solicitors for accident claims always do their very best to secure the highest award possible. In many cases, you won’t even have to attend court yourself. In fact, many cases are settled out of court. You may however need to attend a medical assessment by a professional in that field in addition to one by your own doctor or a hospital staff member.

    Using solicitors for accident claims

    Regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, Accident Advice Helpline’s solicitors for accident claims will always endeavour to handle your case as quickly as possible. This always of course depends on the nature of the claim. Our medical legal experts will confirm that you can make a claim up to 3 years after the accident. This can be extended further if the victim is a child or is someone who has contracted a medical condition as a result of working with potentially harmful materials. Further, you can claim for expenses as well as for the injury itself, so always keep a record of what you spend and receipts. Call us on 0800 689 0500.
