The best legal advice in Lincoln
At Accident Advice Helpline, we pride ourselves on excellent levels of customer care. We understand that you need to claim compensation for your injuries suffered through no fault of your own. We process many Lincoln compensation claims for a variety of accident types, including those in the workplace, accidents on the road and slips, trips and falls. Here, we share some of the best legal advice in Lincoln.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Three main criteria exist prior to being able to make claims for personal injury compensation:
- The accident must have happened within three years of the start of your claim
- You must not have been at fault for the incident
- You should have received medical treatment for your injuries
Our helpline advisers can quickly establish whether you meet these requirements if you are not sure about any or all of them.
Case evidence for Lincoln compensation claims
Case evidence varies from claim to claim, but in general can include witness statements, police reports, medical assessments and your own account of events leading up to the accident.
Once this has been gathered together by your no win, no fee solicitor we will be able to begin negotiations, but you may need to attend one additional medical assessment to bring your case evidence up-to-date.
This current assessment can help to guide negotiations and often lends weight to obtaining a higher award.
Accident Advice Helpline’s no win, no fee method of claiming
We operate on a basis of no win, no fee for all our personal injury cases. Not only does it minimise your financial risks when taking legal action in this way, we feel that it is an ethical way for a law firm such as ours to operate.
In practical terms, no win no fee means that if your case is lost, you will not be liable to pay your solicitor’s fees and also that you can commence a Lincoln compensation claim without paying any money in advance.
You may know this system by its official title of a Conditional Fee Agreement, but no win no fee is the common term for this method of funding personal injury claims in the UK.
Don’t forget to obtain an estimate of a potential compensation amount
Deciding whether to start a claim can be difficult. Taking legal action is a huge decision for anyone and particularly for those who have suffered an injury through no fault of their own. We help you make that decision by providing an estimated compensation amount, either via our online compensation calculator called the 30 second test, or by phoning our helpline advisers.
To find out your estimated compensation award or for any other questions you want answered, just call 0800 689 0500 from your landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone today. We can give you the best legal advice in Lincoln.
