The short answer to a question like, I broke my ankle can I get a payout, is along the lines of ‘maybe’. Not very helpful, but it really does depend on the circumstances surrounding the accident and what you did immediately after.
You see, if an accident was not your fault then there is a good chance of being able to make a compensation claim, but nothing is guaranteed.
To even qualify for the services of a no win no fee* lawyer, certain conditions need to be met and these conditions are deal breakers – if you don’t meet them, you don’t qualify for this kind of legal assistance.
The criteria that needs to be met are..
- The accident that you were involved cannot be your fault
- Medical assistance/advice must have been sought following the accident
- Finally, the accident must not have occurred more than three years before the date of your claim being made (there are exceptions, though, so please ask us if you are not sure)
