When carrying out an online search for solicitors in Forest, you’ll probably see our name, Accident Advice Helpline, pop up all over the place. When we first started trading back in the year 2000, our strategy was to have a strong online identity that would do just that — get our name in front of people and draw them to our website.
Our website is our shop window, which tells anyone who visits it all about our no win no fee personal injury claim service as recommended by Esther Rantzen, the TV personality who became the people’s favourite consumer champion through her programme That’s Life, which aired between 1973 and 1994.
The introduction of no win no fee
When Accident Advice Helpline first came onto the scene in the year 2000, we were one of the first injury claim law firms to introduce a no win no fee personal injury claim offer. Before that, people had to obtain free legal aid if they wanted to launch a claim. Unfortunately, free legal aid was means tested, which in effect meant that people within a certain earnings bracket and above were denied access to it.
The system that has replaced free legal aid, the no win no fee system, is what is described as a conditional offer, which is open to anybody regardless of their means. It guarantees that should a claimant lose their claim, they will not have to pay their solicitor any fee.
Can any solicitors in Forest match our depth of expertise and experience?
Any solicitors in Forest would be hard pressed to match the scope of injury claims that we handle, and the number too. With over 25,000 new enquiries being received every month, we are one of the nation’s favourite and leading personal injury claim law firms, thanks in part to Esther Rantzen’s fabulous recommendation and also to the 200 specialist injury claim solicitors who we employ.
The scope of our services includes:
- Injuries sustained in the home;
- Injuries sustained in the workplace;
- Injuries sustained on vacation;
- Sports injuries;
- Road traffic accident injuries;
- Occupation-related illnesses;
- Post-traumatic stress disorder;
- Clinical negligence claims; and
- Product liability claims.
We can handle any type of injury sustained under any circumstances, as long as the blame for the injury can be levied at a third party. In addition to this requirement, the other qualifying factors are:
- That the type of the injury and its severity must justify the claim;
- That the injury happened within the three-year period immediately preceding the date of the claim; and
- That the claimant can supply medical proof of their injury.
Do it all online
Many claims we process are handled entirely online, starting with the use of our compensation calculator which estimates the value of any claim within just 30 seconds
