People will naturally ask lots of questions when they are wondering if there is a chance of claiming anything in compensation following an accident. They might want to know whether they have a chance to claim to begin with. They may want to know how long the typical claims process will take from start to finish. Another common question to ask concerns what happens if I lose my claim.
Personal accident claims are usually accepted after considering the facts of the situation. This means the lawyer will already have a good idea of the odds of the case being successful, even though nothing is ever certain. This means there is a lower chance of losing the claim, although of course you must accept this may happen.
What happens if I lose my claim and don’t receive any compensation?
Personal injury claims are taken on by following the no-win, no-fee* format of claiming. This means there is no fee* to pay to your solicitors if your claim is not won. As such, you can press ahead and make a claim and not have to worry about having large legal bills to settle in the event you lose.
To find out more about the claims procedure for personal injury claimants, you can chat with a solicitor who regularly deals in these claims. They can explain how the whole process works and what you can expect if you decide to make a claim for compensation relating to the injuries you suffered in your recent accident.
