Where do you find a solicitor to claim unexpected compensation in London?
If you suffered injuries in an accident that was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you are entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation, provided your accident happened within the last 3 years. In the case of industrial disease or when an accident victim was a minor at the time the accident occurred, this 3-year rule is sometimes extended.
The quickest, easiest way to get expert advice is to contact Accident Advice Helpline free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993. Tell one of their friendly advisers how your accident came about, what injuries you sustained and who you think was responsible for your accident. If you qualify for making a claim, the adviser will give you an estimate of how much your claim is worth in terms of compensation.
There is no obligation to proceed, but if you wish to go ahead, they can allocate your claim to one of Accident Advice Helpline’s own legal partner, all of whom provide no win, no fee* services.
This means claimants can start their claim for unexpected injury compensation in London straightaway without being asked to make an upfront payment for legal fees or having to pay anything during the claims process.
I’m not sure I want to cause a fuss: is there some online information for me to look at first?
Yes, there is. Visit Accident Advice Helpline’s website, where you can complete a simple test that will tell you in 30 seconds, if you qualify for a claim for unexpected injury compensation in London and how much compensation you might get, if your accident solicitor settles your claim successfully.
Was the accident your fault?
Not every non-fault accident is strictly the result of somebody else’s negligence. Sometimes circumstances demand that compensation is awarded in proportion to the blame that attaches to each party. If a judge decides you are at least partly to blame for your injuries, your compensation London claim will be reduced downwards. This is why there cannot be any guarantees, when a online compensation calculator gives you a ball park figure of how much you stand to gain when you win your claim.
For example: a motorist knocked you off your bike at a crossing on an evening just before Christmas last year. You broke your arm, sustained cuts and bruises on your legs. The motorist had been traveling at just above the speed limit in a 30-mile per hour restricted zone and went through red traffic lights. However, you were tipsy when you rode your bike and didn’t wear reflective clothing, didn’t use your lights and you also crossed the road, when the traffic lights were still showing red.
In fact, you were both to blame for the accident, but a judge will have to decide, who bears the greater proportion of blame and then award compensation accordingly.
