If you have had an accident that was not your fault, you may want to make an accident claim. It may be that you have suffered an injury that stopped you working for a period of time, or left you disfigured in some way.
Alternatively, you may have been able to continue to work, but have medical bills to pay for things like prescriptions and physiotherapy. It may be simply that you could not drive yourself to work during recovery, so had to pay for train fare or taxis. Whatever the reason, if recovering from your injuries cost you money or has caused you and your family distress you have the right to make a claim.
Fortunately, there are accident claims solicitors who are ready to help you to make a claim. However, the service they offer varies, so it is important to do your research and find the right one for you.
Sources of Information
The Yellow Pages or local newspapers can be a good starting point. However, the internet is a far better source of information. There you can find firms of accident claims solicitors and find out a bit about each one, so, if possible, start your research online.
Resist the temptation to respond to SMS adverts. The firms who advertise this way may be OK, but bear in mind you do not know much about them.
What to Look For
There are plenty of personal injury lawyers out there, so you need to narrow down your options. It is wise to talk to a couple before deciding to make a claim. Start with those firms who offer a free call phone line. That way your initial research and advice will cost you nothing.
Once you have established that you have a winnable case, remember to discuss the cost of making a claim. In most cases you can make a claim with no financial risk to yourself.
It is important to find a firm that has the right expertise, so look for a firm that has previous experience of fighting, and, importantly, of winning your kind of case.
