Can I make a claim?
If you have been injured in any type of accident within the last three years and there is any possibility that someone else was at fault either because of something that they did or that they should have done then you could be entitled to compensation for that injury.
How much compensation will I receive?
This will depend upon your personal circumstances e.g. the extent of your injuries . If you have incurred out of pocket expenses, whether you have had to take any time off work etc. Generally if you are successful you will receive compensation for your pain and suffering and also for any financial loss that you have suffered eg. Loss of earnings, medical bills, travel expenses, care expenses etc.
What is the cost? *
We operate a genuine “No Win No Fee”* agreement, meaning that if we fight your case and your case is unsuccessful it will not cost you a penny. However if we win your case then there is a fee to pay which is 25% of your damages. This is payable at the conclusion of the matter although in some case the solicitors may give you an advance to pay us earlier.
How long will it take?
We always try to deal with every claim as quickly as possible but every case is different and some will take longer than others. As a general rule claims of less than £5,000 are usually settled within 6 months,with injuries resulting from road traffic accidents being settled normally within 6 months. Claims between £5,000 – £15,000 take between 6-12 months, and claims above £15,000 are likely to take longer.
Will I need to attend any meetings?
Usually everything can be dealt with by telephone and/or through the post so you should not have to attend any meetings. This also means that we can appoint the very best firms of personal injury solicitors throughout the UK to handle your case even if they are nowhere near where you live.
You will however be required to attend a medical examination and we will arrange this for you with an expert within your locality.The examination usuall lasts about 30 minutes.
If I decide to proceed what happens next?
Within 24 hours of us receiving your instructions either online or by phone someone will contact you to discuss the matter and if necessary obtain further information. Based upon all of your details we will arrange for a reputable firm of specialist solicitors who we believe to be the most appropriate for you to assess the circumstances surrounding your injury with a view to them allocating one of their expert specialist personal injury solicitors to handle your claim.
You will then deal directly with those lawyers until the claim has been concluded and you have received an appropriate level of compensation.
Will I need to go to court?
It is most unlikely that you will need to attend court. 90% of all claims are settled by the solicitors acting for each side
