Have you suffered an accident within the last three years that was not your fault? Do you wish to find an accident solicitor so that you can pursue a personal injury claim? If you are looking for accident solicitors in a Kentish Town will be able to provide you with plenty of choice but before you jump into making your claim here are a few facts about making claim’s that you may not be aware of.
Accident solicitors in a Kentish Town – ‘No win, No fee’
We have all seen the “no win, no fee” advertisements on our television screens and may wonder what it means. When you choose your accident solicitor, you should discuss this with them. ‘No win, no fee’ does not mean no fees at all. Any personal injury claim will have fees attached to it; it is only common sense that even the largest accident solicitors Kentish Town can offer will have to charge for their time. It is their business and how they make a living after all.
The three criteria
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.

You will not have to speak to them directly the firm 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. If there is any record of your accident such as a police report or the completion of an accident book then this can be taken as evidence; if your accident happened in a public place then there may be CCTV coverage to support your claim.
