    "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."

    Specialist injury lawyers


    The specialist injury lawyers here at Accident Advice Helpline deal with many different types of compensation claims. Whether you have suffered a minor fracture in a mild slip, trip or fall or sustained a life-changing spinal cord injury in a serious road traffic accident, our no-win, no-fee legal team will be able to help you.

    How soon must you make your claim for compensation?

    All personal injury claims are associated with strict time limits. You will usually have three years, starting from the date of your accident or injury, in which to bring your claim against the responsible party. If you were under the age of 18 at the time of your accident, these time limits will not apply, and you will be able to make your claim at any time up until the date of your 21st birthday.

    Will you need to attend a medical examination?

    In most cases, your specialist injury lawyers will require you to attend a medical examination with an independent health care practitioner. If you need to attend an examination, your lawyers will talk you through the process to put your mind at ease. Once you have attended your examination, your legal team will be able to obtain a medical report that sets out the nature and severity of your injuries. This report will form the basis of negotiations between your legal team and the guilty party.

    Will you have to attend a full court hearing?

    Very few personal injury cases actually make it to court. In most cases, your specialist injury lawyers will be able to settle your case before it reaches court. However, if you feel you have not been offered a fair compensation settlement from the guilty party, it may be necessary for you to attend a full court hearing. In the unlikely event that you do need to attend court, your legal team will be able to offer you extensive advice and support.

    How much compensation will you receive?

    It is a common misconception that a personal injury is worth a specific amount of money. If you wish to estimate the value of your compensation settlement, please use our 30-second test.
