    Whiplash injury lawyer for the legal process


    A whiplash injury lawyer for the legal process can be very useful if you need to make a personal injury claim. They can make the whole process so much easier for you, and make sure you get the full amount of compensation that you should. This is what they are trained to do, and they have far more chance of handling your claim successfully, that if you attempted to do it yourself.

    Using a whiplash injury lawyer for the legal process

    Making a personal injury compensation claim is a legal process, and should be treated as such. Very few people would handle their own divorce or house sale, and it is very doubtful you would defend yourself in court for any reason. People mostly use a lawyer to do these things for them, so why not for a personal injury claim?

    Having to deal with these legal bods, actually puts some people off making a claim, but if they contact us at Accident Advice Helpline, they will find that our lawyers are friendly and helpful, and should not be off putting at all.

    It is like they speak two different languages, legal jargon and plain English, and they know which one to use depending on who they are speaking to. They will never try to baffle you with complicated explanations, but will tell you everything as simply as possible. At the end of the day, they do not want misunderstandings because that just makes their job harder, and if you are unsure about something they have told you, they would far rather you ask them to explain it again.

    Using a whiplash injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline will give you peace of mind that your claim is being handled as quickly and efficiently as possible, while making sure that everything is claimed for to maximise the amount of compensation you are awarded.

    Who can use a whiplash injury lawyer for the legal process?

    Anyone that fits the criteria to make a compensation claim can use a whiplash injury lawyer. The UK law says that:

    • Someone else must have been to blame for the accident
    • You must have sustained injuries to your body or mind
    • The injuries must have been severe enough to warrant medical attention
    • The accident must have happened some time in the last three years

    Under these circumstances, you are entitled to compensation from whoever caused you to be injured in an accident.

    How you start a claim

    You can start a personal injury claim by completing the 30-second test on our website. This will let you know if you have a valid claim, and will give you an estimate of how much your compensation could be.

    If you prefer to use the phone, you can call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. This line is manned by friendly expert claims advisors, who will be able to answer any questions you may have about making a personal injury compensation claim.
