    Wakefield accident

    Have you been injured in a Wakefield accident?

    By law, all drivers must have valid motor vehicle insurance cover. Therefore, if you sustain an injury in a cycling accident, or any other road traffic accident, the dangerous driver’s insurance company should pay out for your subsequent compensation claim. If you have had a Wakefield accident, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.

    Let us at Accident Advice Helpline handle your claim

    If you make a claim for a Wakefield accident that was not your fault, please let the legal team here at Accident Advice Helpline represent you. Over the years, we have handled countless cycling accident claims involving injuries ranging from minor strains and sprains to severe brain and spinal cord damage.

    We will assign your case to an experienced in-house lawyer

    When you contact us, we will allocate an expert accident solicitor to help you claim compensation for the injuries you sustained in a Wakefield accident. He or she will then write to the insurance company of the driver responsible for your accident, setting out the details of your personal injury claim. While we await their response, we will arrange for you to attend an examination with a medical expert so that we can determine the severity of your injury and the hence, work out the value of your claim.

    If the guilty party accepts the blame for your Wakefield accident, we will attempt to negotiate the settlement of your claim without taking your case through the courts. If we cannot agree on a suitable compensation settlement, or if the guilty party denies causing your accident, we will review your case once again if we believe you still have a chance of succeeding, we may advise you to start court proceedings. The threat of legal action may encourage the insurance company to reconsider its position and settle your claim without undue delay.

    We will represent you on a no-win, no-fee basis

    If we believe your you have good grounds for making a claim, we will offer to deal with your case under a no-win, no-fee agreement. This means that we will not require you to pay out for any upfront legal fees.
