The village of Shirland in north-east Derbyshire once relied on frame knitting, mining and agriculture as the mainstay of its local economy. Today, most residents commute to work in the nearby towns and cities, which means the roads here can get pretty busy at peak times. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident then making a no-win, no-fee in Shirland claim may be something you have considered. The good news is that you can get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you could be eligible to make a claim, and you have three years from the date of your accident to do so. The bad news is that if you use another personal injury lawyer, you might not benefit from our expertise and outstanding customer service.
Why make a no-win, no-fee in Shirland claim?
You could make a no-win, no-fee in Shirland claim if you have been injured in a road traffic accident and somebody else is to blame. For example, perhaps you are a cyclist who was knocked off their bike at a junction by another vehicle. Or maybe another car rear-ended your car at the traffic lights. You could even have been knocked over by a vehicle as you crossed the road, if the driver was distracted or speeding. In all these cases, the other party could be held liable for your accident and you could find yourself entitled to claim compensation for your pain and suffering as well as any financial losses. If your injuries are serious, you may never fully recover, for example, if you have sustained a brain injury.
This can impact the rest of your life and you may need ongoing care and medical treatment, which can be expensive. This is something which we’ll take into account when we process your claim. Our lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, so you don’t need to worry about how you will afford to pay legal fees, whether you are claiming after your own accident or on behalf of an injured family member.
How much compensation could you get?
Every claim is processed individually, as every accident is different, which makes it difficult for us to tell you exactly how much compensation you could get. If you’d like an idea of what you could expect to receive, you could always take the 30-second test on our website, which will give you a guideline figure. Then you can call us to find out more about making a claim and see if you are eligible. Just pick up the phone and call our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile. Our expert advisors have over 16 years’ experience and we offer confidential, no-obligation advice. So whether you’re ready to proceed with a claim or simply want to ask us some questions about your accident and the claims process, you can get in touch with us at any time without any pressure to go ahead with a claim for compensation.
