    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Accident Solicitor in Deptford

    Have you suffered an accident within the last three years that was not your fault? Do you feel that you would like to make a personal injury claim? If you are looking for an accident solicitor in Deptford will be able to provide you with plenty of choice, but before you jump into making a decision and start making a claim here are a few facts about making claims that you may not be aware of.

    Accident solicitor in Deptford – No win No fee

    Every time we turn on the television, or indeed walk down the high street we see the “no win no fee” advertisements and we may sometimes wonder what it means. When you choose your accident solicitor you should discuss this with them so that you understand clearly the financial element of making a claim.

    No win no fee means you won’t have to pay any money up front to start your claim, and your fees will be claimed back from the other party should you lose. Solicitors have insurance to cover these things, which is why you don’t pay. But what if you win?

    How fees are worked out is a  very important thing to consider when making your claim. Ask your solicitor’s advice.

    The three things any solicitor will want to know

    All claims must fall into the following three categories if they have a chance of being taken on by an accident solicitor .

    • They must have occurred within the last three years.
    • They must have occurred because of someone else’s negligence
    • You must have suffered an injury that required medical attention as a result

    If you feel that your individual case satisfies these conditions then you will be able to proceed with a claim.

    Accident solicitor in Deptford

    Whether your accident solicitor is local and based in Deptford, or not, he will ask for the names and contact details of witnesses to the event. You will not have to speak to them directly the solicitor will do this for you.

    If you do not have any witnesses then the chance of a successful claim becomes less, but it does not mean that you should not pursue a claim at all. Any record of your accident such as a police report or the completion of an accident book  can be taken as evidence; if your accident happened in a public place then there may be CCTV coverage to support your claim so don’t feel downhearted.
