You’ll find solicitors in every town and most villages in the UK these days. We all need legal help from time to time in our lives and finding the right law firm is important. If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, then you may find yourself needing the services of a personal injury lawyer. But there are solicitors out there who don’t necessarily specialise in personal injury law. We would always recommend choosing a specialist solicitor to handle your claim, ideally one with experience handling the type of personal injury claim you are submitting, for example a road traffic accident claim. Accident Advice Helpline has over 16 years’ experience handling claims for a variety of different types of accidents and injuries, and we have a great track record of success.
Recommendations are helpful in all kinds of situations. Plumbers, dentists, doctors, schools; you name it, we’ve all needed advice for one issue or another. Generally, it’s a good way to ensure you’re getting someone you can trust to do the job that needs attention.
If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault then how to find solicitors to help you get justice is very important. You may want to ask friends and family for their recommendations when it comes to solicitors, but what if you don’t know anybody who has ever made a claim for personal injury compensation? Many people won’t be able to ask friends and family for a recommendation, and spending all your time online hunting for a personal injury lawyer can be confusing and daunting. It’s best to choose a specialist firm offering a 100% no-win, no-fee service, and that’s exactly what you will get when you choose Accident Advice Helpline.
Claiming personal injury compensation with solicitors
It’s not something you face every day so you may be wondering how solicitors can help you get compensation for your injuries. Not all solicitors have expertise in this area of the law so make sure you do some research. A solicitor who specialises in matrimonial issues or conveyancing will be unlikely to have the special talents you need to ensure your compensation claim is successful. Knowing how to make claims with solicitors who are conversant with personal injury law will stand you in better stead. If your claim is challenged by the party that caused your accident you need an expert on your side. Most claims don’t end up in court, and Accident Advice Helpline can process the majority of claims over the phone, but if you do end up in court, wouldn’t you rather have expert support and advice from an experienced personal injury solicitor?
Accident Advice Helpline
We may well have been recommended to you already. We have helped many non-fault accident victims to get the compensation their injuries deserve. With over 16 years’ industry experience, we specialise in personal injury law and we have a trusted team of solicitors covering the whole of the UK, not to mention our experienced personal injury advisors.
What we can do for you
If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident or had an accident in your workplace we can help. If you’ve slipped tripped or fallen in a public place, we will fight your case. Whatever kind of accident has left you injured, if you were not to blame, we’re on your side. There’s no need to worry about the cost of claiming with solicitors as our lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis – we believe that everybody should be able to make a claim if they have been injured due to somebody else’s negligence.
Can you claim on behalf of somebody else?
As experienced personal injury solicitors, we have handled thousands of claims made by somebody on behalf of somebody else. For example, if your husband, wife or partner sustains serious, life-changing injuries in an industrial accident or is killed in a road traffic accident caused by somebody else, you may want to pursue compensation on their behalf. If they’re seriously injured and unable to claim, you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out more about making a claim. Likewise, if your child has been injured in an accident at school or nursery, we can help you to make a claim for compensation on their behalf.
What about if you have suffered minor injuries?
You can claim compensation for any injury sustained in an accident caused by somebody else, provided you needed medical attention for your injuries. That means if you sprained your ankle and needed medical attention after your accident, you could still have a viable claim. You could even make a claim for compensation for loss of earnings, so if you have needed to take time off work after your accident and you want to find out whether you could be compensated financially for your time off sick, you can get in touch with us within three years of your accident. Of course, the more serious your injuries, the more compensation you are likely to receive, and the time you take to recover can also impact the amount of your personal injury settlement. But you shouldn’t let anybody put you off making a claim by telling you that your injuries are not serious enough, as this simply isn’t true.
