If you’ve been in an accident that was not your fault in St Edmundsbury, compensation might seem like a relatively simple and straightforward proposition, but you’d be surprised by how difficult it can suddenly become. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, though, we’re committed to making sure that you have everything you need at your disposal to make a claim. Here’s how we work.
You can tell a lot about a business from how and why it came into being. We started life in 2000 at a time when making a personal injury claim had suddenly become very difficult. The removal of legal aid from the majority of personal injury claims threatened to exclude the majority of people from the legal system with only the most wealthy ever being able to even consider making a claim. At Accident Advice Helpline, we felt that this was not fair so we took action accordingly. We set up a free 24 hour help line which would make it easier for people to get advice. This meant that nobody had to risk paying our compensation fees just to find out what their rights were.
This meant that a large part of the services we offered come entirely free of charge with no obligation to stick with us for anything else. We’d give you advice, tell you whether we thought you had a good chance and could even estimate your likely compensation sum for you.
This was only a rough guide, but it did allow people to set early expectations and could come in useful when making decisions about your case further down the line.
Paying for St Edmundsbury compensation
Perhaps the most important thing we offered, though, came in how we decided to charge our legal fees. We offered something called no win no fee, which was basically an option which allowed you to make a claim without worrying about paying for legal fees if you failed.
This was the best way we could think of to replace the loss of legal aid. Fees would still be applicable if we won the case, but if we didn’t then you would walk away without paying a single penny. You could think of it as having a safety net if you like, which ensures you will not suffer financially because of a lost claim.

So whether you’ve suffered an accident in the street, the workplace or anything else we could find someone who is appropriate for a St Edmundsbury compensation claim both in terms of your location and the skills required.
