When should you consult some Winchester ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers?
Firstly, you can contact Accident Advice Helpline whenever you want. They operate a 24 hour helpline that is open 7 days a week and there will always be a friendly, professional adviser waiting to take your call.

There are time limits for a personal injury claim and these are imposed by law and not by the Winchester ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline. You have to make a personal injury claim within three years of the accident or incident that caused your injuries. There are some exceptions to this rule (for example for industrial diseases and injuries in children) and so if you are not sure then it is always a good idea to call Accident Advice Helpline and get some advice.
Most people find that the earlier you start your personal injury claim the better and some even call Accident Advice Helpline from the accident scene. Starting a personal injury claim early means that you will be able to recall what happened accurately. It also means that the witnesses to the accident will be readily available – they are unlikely to have moved house or changed telephone numbers! It also means that your medical records and any other paperwork relating to the accident will be close at hand.
However, it may be a good idea to get some medical attention first. This will ensure that your injuries are being correctly assessed and treated and that you are not developing any dangerous complications which could delay your recovery.
