Introduction to the Company

We are a website that was established in 2015 as part of the Accident Claimline, a fully regulated and reputable accident claims management company based in the UK.

Our website includes an easy to use form and freephone number.
Our website includes an easy to use form and freephone number.

We specialise in helping people who live and work all around the UK, including England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland in making personal injury claims for compensation.

How the Accident Advice Helpline Works

Our premise is very simple. If you believe that you have been hurt due to an accident that was not your fault, and believe you could be due compensation, then you call our helpline and one of our advisors will take you through a quick question and answer session over the telephone to validate your claim. If we believe you are eligible to make an accident claim, then we will appoint you with a personal injury solicitor as local to you as we possibly can.

Your personal injury solicitor will then represent you to the best of their ability from start to finish, and in most cases you won’t even need to attend court. Most claims are settled outside of court within a few months.

Your solicitor will tell you each and every step of the way exactly what is happening and how your accident claim compensation case is progressing. You can read more about the claim types we deal with below.

Accidents at Work

Work accident claims are amongst the most common types that we deal with. Other than the home, your workplace is the place that you spend the most time, and so it stands to reason that accidents can happen on premises or whilst working.

What we find with work accident claims is that many people and employees can be quite reticent about claiming for compensation or bringing legal action against their employer or boss. This is completely understandable as most people want to protect their job, livelihood, and income.

However, you need to be aware that the UK legislation and law is there to protect you against accidents at work. Anyone who decides to make an accident claim case against their employer isn’t actually going to be seeking compensation from the company.

How it works is that all businesses and companies in the UK will be protected by insurance policies which mean that any compensation will be paid for by an insurance company. In fact, it’s far more common than you would think and we handle hundreds of cases of this type each year.

We always tell any callers that they should not have to worry about bringing a claim because they won’t be taking money from the pocket of their boss. So if you have been hurt or injured at work and would like to explore your options about making a personal injury claim then please call us today.

Not only that though. Many employees might be concerned that their employer could discriminate against them if they have decided to pursue legal action over accident claims. There is additional UK law and legislation that also protects against workplace discrimination by employers against employees in cases such as this so that’s another aspect that should put your mind at rest should you be at all concerned in using our professional and expert services.

Car Accident Claims and Crashes

Unfortunately another common type of enquiry that our specialist team deal with concern car crashes and collusions. In many cases you will swap insurance details and let your insurance company deal with any fall-out after an accident – visit our website for information on car crash claims.

Be Wary of Insurance Company Payouts

But you might not realise that the insurance companies are experts at paying out the least possible when it comes to compensation. With our help we can fight for your rights to get as much personal injury compensation as possible after a car accident – even if you believe it might have been your fault.

Our personal injury solicitors will seek the following types of damages:

  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Compensation for loss of wages and time off work
  • Compensation for any psychological damages
  • Repairs or replacement vehicles costs
  • Any other associated costs
  • Legal costs and reimbursements
  • Private medical care and treatment where needed

Brain Injuries and Serious Head Injuries

We are also specialists in very serious injuries, such as brain injury claims, and other serious types such as back, head, and spinal cases. When it comes to accident and injury claims such as these it’s imperative that you seek the advice of a firm of solicitors who specialise in cases such as this.

For example, if you had hurt your knee and needed an operation, you would not call a chiropodist. Instead you want the services of a specially trained knee surgeon. Making decisions when it comes to legal representation should really be no different, and we have a large roster or specialist brain injury lawyers and head injury specialist solicitors who are ready and waiting to represent you and your family.

We know how stressful and worrying it can be for the families of head injuries, in particular those affected with brain injuries, and have a sympathetic and understanding approach to cases such as these where our team are specially trained to ask the right questions and get the right personal injury solicitors firm to work on your case.

Help Also for Pedestrian and Cyclists

It’s not just drivers that we can offer legal support too though. We are also massive advocates of making sure that pedestrians and cyclists also get the help that they need and deserve after an injury.

We have sections on our website dedicated to cycling accident claims and those involving road traffic accidents involving pedestrians. That could include a slip, trip, or fall, or even being knocked over by a car. Whatever your circumstances make sure you call us to discuss your own individual case so we can properly advise you.

We are so happy to be involved with this sponsorship opportunity and one of our representatives might end up meeting some of you at the 2016 forum and conference. If you would like to write to or call us then our contact information is below – and as said we are available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year – even on public holidays such as Christmas time.

The Way That Insurance Companies Handle Accident Claims Should Change

One of the main topics of conversation at the 2016 forum will be how accident claims are handled by insurance companies. An insurance company will typically require information regarding the accident claim in order to assess and pay for the claim.

In most cases, accident claims information is delivered by the reporting plaintiff or the policyholder. Such information is helpful for investigation and evaluation of a loss – but in some cases this information can be fraudulent hence why we believe it should be discussed at the next forum in order to protect our own industry.

The two primary types of accident claim, property damage and personal injury, require an adjustment insurer to probe into the loss of detail and develop a resolution. But in some cases this won’t be done thoroughly – we see this a lot with car accident compensation when an auto accident policyholder can file a collision claim sometimes without enough mitigating information or evidence.


Recent Accident Claims News

There has been a lot of recent news about this which you can view below:

What we believe is that where the policyholder describes how the injury occurred and who was involved, the insurance company needs to gather a lot more information such as the year, make, and model of the vehicle along with the vehicle identification number.

The insurance company will also ask if the police were called to the scene, a police report was taken, and whether any witnesses were present. If the vehicle can be driven, the insurance company can provide business area repair take the vehicle for a quote. If the vehicle is towed insurance company will send an adjustment to the workshop to determine if the vehicle can be repaired.

After completing the assessment, the insurance company pays the insured for the amount of the damages is subject to a deductible.

As the law currently stands there are many cases where this information isn’t properly investigated, and there have been a lot of fraudulent accident claims made in 2015 and that’s set to rise in the 2016 calendar year we believe.

An applicant may submit an application for injury, also called a claim for pain and suffering, with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. In addition to many of the details asked during a collision claims the insurance company will also ask for some accident claim information in relation to how the injury occurred, and details of the damage.

Other requests for accident claim information is the applicant’s age, which the applicant is medically treated, and whether the plaintiff’s injury occurred in the past. An adjustment has been assigned to handle the investigation and assessment of the claim for pain and suffering.

Information on Fire Based Accident Claims

When a fire breaks out, files policyholder claims for damage to homes or commercial buildings and personal content. The insurance company will ask the insured for accident claim information in relation to how the fire started, if possible, and which parts of the structure and contents were damaged. If greater damage occurs to a personal residence, the insurance company will work with the policyholder to find alternative accommodation in the interim.

As for a commercial loss, the business area will assist the insurance company to prepare a complaint under business interruption coverage. Once the initial information is reported, an adjustment is sent to the loss was to prepare a calculation of damages for the structure and content.

Other accident claim information requested from the policyholder includes finding a contractor to repair the structure and establish a timetable for repairs. When the calculations are complete, the insurance company to pay the debts per the purchased insurance, by either replacement cost or actual cash value, subject to a deductible.

What About Water Damage?

When water damage occurs, the policyholder files claim for damages to the home and for damages to personal content. The insurance company will ask the insured for accident claim information associated with the water damage occurred. If, for example, performs a plumber repairing some pipes burst causing a flood insurance company will request information in relation to the plumber background and the type of work performed.

Additionally, an adjustment will be sent to inspect the damage and the draft estimates of repairs. The insurance company will pay debt per the purchased insurance, by either replacement cost or actual cash value, subject to a deductible.

Slips, Trips and Falls Personal Injury Cases

When someone slips and falls on the premises of a policyholder’s property causes injury, the plaintiff files a claim with the policyholder’s insurance company for a claim for pain and suffering. The insurance company will interview applicants to find out the details accident claim even where the incident occurred, how the accident occurred, and if there were any conditions released to the public on notice of the condition that caused the accident.

If an incident report was made, the report provides important accident claim. The insurance company may retain an investigator to inspect the premises of any dangerous conditions and make recommendations for risk management purposes.

Your Legal Rights Regarding Work Accident Claims or Industrial Injury

Despite statutory operating safeguards work accidents happen again and again. Then it’s good to know what obligations have employers and employees. You can also read more here about what accident claims law involves.

When it comes to an accident at work or work accident claimd, the provisions of the Social Code (SGB) Laying seventh part fixed. According to SGB VII there is an accident at work when an insured employee suffers an accident because of an activity that is in direct connection with his work.

  • Death.

work-safeAn accident is an insured accident, which occurred on a direct path to the workplace or on direct route from the workplace home.

Not to be confused with an accident at work is the occupational disease in § 9 SGB VII. This arises from the nature of the accident at work, which the law defines as “time-limited externally acting on the body events”.

Accidents at work must not be self-inflicted by the employee, the SGB is purely from the activity performed, by which the individual damage.

When there is an accident at work?

Uses of workers despite the mandatory safety training by the employer in accordance with § 15 Labour Protection Act (ArbSchG) no protective clothing and thereby incurs a loss in the above-mentioned type, it is not by an accident at work. The same applies to private activities during the actual working time.

Experts of the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV) advise every little or seemingly insignificant accident at work, for example, to report the famous cut finger, the employer. Background: caused by the initial injury a worse secondary damage and the employee can no longer characterized work properly or even made void under certain circumstances the insurance coverage.

This applies when the insured employee is so injured that he is unable to work more than three days. For the message of the employer three days. In serious cases, ie when serious injury or even death, should be reported immediately.
