How Help Assured will assist you
One of our consultants will listen sympathetically to you and take the details of your accident. Where the consultant feels you would benefit from legal advice and your claim merits further investigation, we will offer to recommend you to a specialist solicitor without delay. Help Assured will not charge you anything for doing this. We will not ask you to take out any loan, sign anything, or enter into any contract. We do not give you legal advice. That is the job of specialist solicitors.
If we feel we cannot help you, we will let you know, and of course you are free to seek advice elsewhere immediately.
Help Assured can recommend an independent solicitor. You are free to choose another solicitor. Any solicitor we recommend to you is an independent professional from whom you should receive impartial and confidential advice. They are not employed by Help Assured. The solicitors should always act in your best interest, this is a requirement of their professional body. Help Assured’ solicitors are required to comply with the Solicitors code of Conduct (2011).
Help Assured is not in any way responsible for the advice given or other work undertaken on your behalf by these solicitors firms. Your solicitor firm will give you their independent advice about the use of legal expenses insurance and any medico-legal reporting agency. Solicitor firms pay Help Assured for marketing, call handling and recommendations. This does not affect the value of your claim in any way. If you are close to the time limit for making a claim, do not wait, contact the solicitor firm immediately.
Seek advice quickly after your accident
This is important. Although you generally have 3 years (or longer for those under 18 or suffering from specific illnesses) from the accident date until your claim is time-barred, it is best to gather the evidence while memories are fresh, and get the legal and rehabilitation help when you need it most.
When telephoning Help Assured no calls are recorded.

Malicious or abusive calls are a criminal offence under Section 43 of the Telecommunications Act 1984, and Help Assured will not hesitate to report such acts to the police.
