Finding out if you can claim

We all want to be treated as individuals. At National Accident Helpline we understand that every case, and every claimant, is different. Our Claim Checker can give you a good idea of whether you’re able to claim; however, the most accurate way to find out if you can make a no win no fee claim is to give us a call on 0800 540 4258 or fill out the form below at the bottom of this page.

There’s no obligation; we’re just here to offer advice. We will answer any questions you have and, if you do choose to make a no win no fee claim, we will help you with the next steps.

There's no risk when you make a claim with us

We understand that recovering from an injury may have put you under financial pressure. Perhaps you had to take time off work or pay bills you didn’t expect.

Making a claim with us is risk-free, as we treat claims on a no win no fee basis. If your claim does not succeed, you won’t have to pay anything. There are a few exceptions to this rule that your solicitor will be able to explain to you.

Find out more about our solicitor firms and the standards we hold them to.


What does 'no win no fee' mean?

‘No win no fee’ is the conditional agreement between you and your solicitor. It means that, if your case is unsuccessful, your solicitor won’t charge you any fees.

Our solicitors will only take on your case if they think your claim will be successful. The benefit of this is that you won’t waste your valuable time starting off a claim that has little chance of winning.

We have in-depth knowledge of compensation claims, meaning that we will be able to quickly work out whether we can help you. With our help, you could be on your journey to compensation within minutes.

To find out if you have a valid claim, fill out our claims form or give us a call on 0800 540 4258 .

Liability, and what it means

Put simply, liability means that somebody is legally responsible for something – in other words, they’re to blame for your accident or injury.

In order to be able to make a claim, somebody has to be ‘liable’, as it’s the liable person or party who your solicitor will make your claim against.

It’s very common for the person or organisation you’re claiming against to deny liability at first. That’s why our experienced specialist solicitors gather evidence to prove that the accident was their fault so that you can receive the compensation you deserve.

We realise that you may be unsure who is liable for your accident, as it can often be difficult to tell whose fault it is.

The best way to find out is to get in touch with us for free. Our legally trained advisors will be able to let you know whether they think you have a claim and can pass you on to one of our solicitors.

If you do know who is liable for your accident but are worrying about how it will impact them, please don’t worry. Most claims are made against the insurance of the liable person, so they won’t have to pay it personally.

Claiming for an accident at work

All employers have a duty of care to provide a safe workplace for their employees. If your employer failed to do this, and you suffered an accident as a result, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

If you’re worried about claiming compensation from your employer, don’t be. Any compensation you receive won’t be paid by them, but through their insurance. Your claim should not affect your job security as there are laws designed to prevent this from happening.

To find out more about claiming from your employer, visit our accidents at work page.

Accidents on the road

If you were injured in a road accident then you may be able to claim compensation. This is true whether you were a driver, a passenger, a cyclist or a pedestrian. As you might expect, you can claim if the accident was caused by another driver.

A fault on the road such as a pothole or faulty traffic light could also lead to a successful claim. In the case of another driver being at fault, compensation will be paid for by their insurance company. There’s therefore no need to feel uncomfortable about receiving the compensation you deserve.

For more advice about making a road accident claim, visit our road accidents page.

Injured in public

Hazards in public places can lead to accidents and injuries. It might be a poorly maintained pavement or a dangerous obstacle in a supermarket or shopping centre.

To have a valid claim, you just need to be able to show that someone was at fault. Be it a local authority, a shopkeeper or an employer, if they neglected their duty of care then you may be eligible to claim.

As each case is different, the best thing to do is call us on 0800 540 4258 . We’ll be able to determine in minutes whether you have a claim.

Suffering due to medical negligence?

If you’ve suffered, physically or psychologically, from a lack of care from a medical specialist such as a doctor, nurse, surgeon or dentist, you may have a valid claim. As a patient, you may have been misdiagnosed or sustained an injury due to a medical or surgical error.

If you’ve suffered as a result of medical negligence in the last three years, get in touch with our team. Our legally trained advisors will be able to tell you if you have a valid claim and put you straight through to a specialist medical negligence solicitor.

Claiming in Scotland

We have a network of experienced Scottish solicitors who deal with all types of injury claims. Claims made in Scotland also operate on a no win no fee basis. This means there is no risk to you if your claim is unsuccessful, as you won’t pay a penny. There are very few exceptions to this rule and your solicitor can explain these to you if necessary.

Just as in the rest of the UK, the amount of compensation you receive in Scotland will depend on the type of injury you’ve suffered and how this has affected your everyday life.

Call us now or fill in the online form to speak to an expert legal advisor.

Following an accident in which you were injured you may be unsure as to whether you are entitled to make a personal injury claim. If you’re not sure then give the team here at National Accident Helpline a call and we’ll let you know in minutes.


Serious Injuries

If you’ve suffered a serious or life changing injury, then first of all we’re very sorry that you’ve had to go through such a stressful time. Serious injuries can be traumatic and upsetting for you and those close to you and can also be extremely physically painful.

We’re here to help you. Although no amount of money can make up for your injury, getting compensation can take away some of the financial pressure so that you can focus on your recovery.

If you’ve suffered a serious injury in the last three years and it wasn’t your fault, then it’s likely that we’ll be able to help you to make a claim for compensation. For more information, visit our serious injuries page.

Can children claim?

If your child has been injured you may be concerned about whether they’ll be able to get the compensation they deserve.

Fortunately, you can claim compensation on behalf of a child, and we will be happy to talk you through the process. The claim is usually made by a parent or ‘litigation friend’ for those under the age of 18.

Any compensation has to be approved by a judge. This is known as ‘infant settlement approval’. The compensation will then be held in a trust until the child is 18, unless the money is needed sooner.

To make a claim for a childhood injury as an adult, you must be within three years of your 18th birthday. We can talk through this type of claim or help you find out if your child is entitled to compensation over the phone in a no obligation chat on 0800 540 4258 .
