Perhaps you have had an accident in which you were injured and the accident was no fault of yours. You might have been diagnosed with a work-related injury and be thinking about seeking personal injury compensation, but you might be a little confused about how to do this. What kind of solicitor do you need? Where do you find one? These questions may be going through your mind.
Accident solicitor in Boot
If you think you have a case for making a personal injury claim, whether as the result of an accident that was not your fault, or whether you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness and feel you should be compensated for this by your employer, you need an accident solicitor. Such solicitors are also known as personal injury solicitors, so don’t just look up accident solicitor in Boot (for example) in your phone book.
An accident solicitor in Boot or elsewhere in the UK will probably be able to take your case on a no-win, no-fee basis. However you should be aware that there are changes to the law regarding these arrangements. The Legal Aid, Sentencing & Punishment of Offenders Act came into force on the 1st April 2013. And this Act changes, to some extent, the way a no-win, no-fee case works. The good news is that these arrangements are still in place, as these replace legal aid which was abolished for personal injury cases in 1995. Another piece of good news is that if the case is won, the “success fee” can only be 25% of the damages awarded. Before April 2013 the success fee could have been anything up to 100%.
You can look online for an accident solicitor in Boot, or one near you, but remember that as all accidents happen in different circumstances and injuries vary then you need one who has the relevant expertise to represent you.
