Free and no obligation legal advice is available to you following a personal injury, and there are several ways to get it. In this article, we’ll run through them.
Call an accident claims helpline
Accident claims helplines are a fantastic way to get free, no obligation legal advice from the comfort of your own home. They are operated and run by law firms, and they are managed by experienced claims advisors on the other end, who can answer a wide range of claims-related questions. They are also qualified to establish your eligibility for compensation, and they can provide you with an estimated payout too. The most reputable accident advice line is operated by Accident Advice Helpline, who have been operating since 2000.
An accident claims helpline can help you to establish:
- Your claim eligibility;
- What limitations may affect you;
- How much you could claim for your injuries;
- How long the claims process might take;
- And much more.
If you are immobile due to your injuries, then calling a helpline is simply the best way to get legal advice. The advice you receive will also be tailored to your individual circumstances, and it will be provided to you for free and without any obligation to make a claim. However, always make sure that the helpline is legitimate, and is operated by a reputable law firm.
Other options available to you
Here’s some other options for getting accident advice:
Pop into your local law firm
Providing you are mobile after your accident, popping into your local law firm is a good way to get legal advice. The downside? You’re going to have to book an appointment, and there’s a chance that the law firm won’t specialise in personal injury law. This is the case with many localised law firms, who specialise in a wider area of practice. This may not be ideal if you have a complex claim, or if your claim regards an industrial or long-term illness, as these kinds of claim require a specialist who’s willing to invest time into your case.
Look on reputable websites
If you have a general question surrounding accident claims in the United Kingdom, then there’s a good chance you can get an answer online. We recommend that you search for answers to your questions on Google or another popular search engine, and pay attention to the search results that are published by law firms, because they are qualified. You can get quick answers to questions regarding claim liability, eligibility and limitations online, although the information available to you will not be specific to your individual case. Also, if you are still unsure about anything, you can always call a claims helpline afterwards.
