    "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."

    Accident Advice Helpline provides help for anyone who has been the victim of an accident in South Somerset. We could help you claim compensation, which could prove crucial to anyone who is looking to get their lives and their health back on track.

    Life after an accident

    From talking to our clients we know exactly how stressful life can be after an accident. It’s not just the injuries which can be relatively short term, or have more severe consequences; it’s the uncertainty.

    When you’ve been in a major accident, you simply can’t rely on anything anymore – not your health, your independence or even in some cases your employment.

    UK employment laws have never been entirely friendly to workers and there are signs that more changes are coming into force which could further damage the interests of employees. In terms of sick pay, there is a huge variety of terms which bosses can impose. Some will have a limited period of full sick pay, bringing this figure down once someone is absent for longer. A few even go so far as to offer no sick pay at all – something which is increasingly common with zero hours contracts.

    Help for the victim of an accident in South Somerset

    With all that ranged against you it’s nice to be able to get some help, but where should you look? The government looks to be setting its course against people making personal injury claims through the small claims court. There is a sense that we’ve seen too many frivolous claims in the past for injuries which might not be all that severe. There is already no legal aid available for these types of claims and there are more measures in the pipeline. Even the Citizens Advice Bureau is reducing the amount of information and support it gives out, which is a worrying sign.
    For any victim of an accident in South Somerset, compensation can seem difficult to get, but that needn’t be the case if you go with Accident Advice Helpline. Where official help is in decline, we’ve stepped in to replace it with a free 24 hour helpline through which we can dispense advice and information on every aspect of personal injury law.
