The importance of accident legal advice in Oadby and Wigston
A lot of first-time claimants are under the impression that a compensation claim will involve a great deal of time and money, and for those who can’t afford the cost of a lawyer to represent them – or just legal advice – it could mean that they miss out on the compensation they’re entitled to.
However, we work on a 100% no-win no-fee* basis so there are no upfront fees to pay and you are under no obligation to go ahead with a claim just because you’ve spoken to us about claiming.
This means that claiming for compensation is a viable option for everyone, and we’ve made it quick and easy for you to find out if you might be entitled to make a claim by creating an online test. All you need to do is answer a few simple questions about what happened and how you’ve been affected, and it only takes 30-seconds to complete.
Making a claim for compensation after an accident
If you are eligible to make a claim and wish to go ahead then we’ll provide you with your own experienced and friendly personal injury solicitor. They will then get in touch to introduce themselves and to gather as much information as possible about the accident and how you’ve been affected in order to build the best case on your behalf.
They will also be able to answer any questions you might have, to explain the next steps in the process and to provide an estimate on the minimum and maximum potential payout you could receive for a successful claim.
Each settlement is decided on a case-by-case basis so there is no set figure for a particular claim. However, we can make the estimate according to a variety of factors related to your accident including how it happened and the injuries, the treatments you received and the prognosis and any financial implications.
Should you wish to contact us or discuss any aspect of your claim then we have experienced and friendly personal injury solicitors who are here to help and provide legal advice when you need it, so call for free on 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
