    Southend on Sea Accident


    Have you been injured in a Southend on Sea accident?

    If someone else was to blame for your accident then you may be able to claim compensation for your injury.

    Personal injury compensation payments are non taxable and are paid either at the order of a court of law or after an out of court settlement – most personal injury claims are settled out of court as this keeps costs down for all parties involved.

    If you are eligible for compensation then you will need to file a claim with a lawyer; you will need to use a lawyer who works in injury law – a lawyer you may have used previously, or who has been recommended to you by your insurance company, may specialise in a different area of law and may not necessarily have the experience to get you the best compensation package available.

    ‘No win, no fee’

    When you employ a lawyer to work on your claim you can either pay them on a hourly basis, paying all fees upfront, or enter into a conditional fee agreement – no win no fee. With any lawsuit there is a risk that you won’t win your case, so the best thing to do is to find a solicitor who will work under a conditional fee agreement so you don’t have to find the money to pay your legal bills.

    Your accident

    You can claim personal injury compensation following a Southend on Sea accident that took place at work, on the road, in a public place, or after using a faulty appliance or product. Or perhaps somewhere or somehow else entirely; wherever you accident happened you can claim compensation providing that it happened in the past three years and as a result of someone else’s negligence.

    Open Claim Calculator

    • To check if you are eligible to claim use the 30 Second Compensation Calculator online at www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk. The calculator will also give you an estimate of how much you could be owed.

    Helping your claim

    If you are going to claim compensation there are a few things you can do to increase the chances of your claim being successful:

    • Writing a brief account of your Southend on Sea accident
    • Reporting your injury or illness to your GP.
    • Taking photographs of any visible injuries and the accident scene, if possible/ applicable.
    • Taking the contact details of any witnesses to your Southend on Sea accident.
    • Keeping a log of costs arising from your accident as you can be reimbursed for those costs – keep receipts and bank statements!
    • Report your Southend on Sea accident to the relevant authority (this could be the police, a business or a local council).
