When you’ve just been injured in an accident, life can seem complicated enough. Claiming for compensation might seem like too much to take on, and sadly a lot of people miss out on what they’re entitled to because they feel this way. In fact it doesn’t need to be complicated at all. We handle accident claims all the time and we’ve streamlined the process to make it as easy as possible for you.
Because we know one size doesn’t fit all, we’ve developed two ways for you to begin your claim. We have an online form that’s easy to fill out so that you can explain what has happened to you. Alternatively, you can phone us – at any time of the day or night – and talk to one of our advisers.
A simple process
When you get in touch with us we want to make sure you get the best possible service. We operate on a no win, no fee* basis, which means that you won’t have to pay us any money upfront and if your case is unsuccessful you won’t owe us anything. If you win, we’ll normally recover our fees from the other side, meaning that you get the full benefit of your compensation.
We believe that the process of claiming should be stress-free, so we’ll never pressure you into going ahead. We’ll just take down your details, let you know if your claim is valid, and give you an idea of how much compensation you might be due. You can then decide whether or not you want to pursue a claim.
What happens next?
If you decide to go ahead with a claim, we’ll put you in touch with a solicitor. Different kinds of claim benefit from different kinds of expertise, but we have lots of solicitors to choose from so we’ll be able to find the right expert for you. Your solicitor will talk through the case with you over the phone. They will then take care of the paperwork while you get on with your life.
Often the whole process of claiming can be done over the phone. You might not need to go to court, but if you do, your solicitor will talk you through it and make sure you understand what it involves. If you need to undergo an independent medical assessment to confirm your injuries, this will also be organised for you. Your solicitor will liaise with any witnesses to your accident and, with your permission, talk to the doctor who first dealt with your injuries.
Your claim can cover a number of different things. It can account for earnings you’ve lost when unable to work, or extra costs you’ve had to cope with because of the after-effects of the accident. It can pay for any ongoing help or adaptations to your home that are needed because of your injuries. It can cover the cost of some kinds of medical treatment or counselling that you need. It can also compensate you for your suffering, so that you can enjoy yourself a little and put the difficult times behind you.
