Many people in the United Kingdom suffer accidents and do nothing about it. An alarming two and a half million people in the United Kingdom suffer accidents every year through no fault of their own. Only a third of that number claim compensation. If you have been considering making car accident and injury claims in the City of London then be assured you are not alone. But don’t just think, act.
Claims for compensation – Did you know?
- Only six percent of the British population understand their legal rights to make a compensation claim.
- Nineteen percent of accident sufferers would have no idea how to start a claim.
- Making a claim can potentially highlight a dangerous situation that may put others at risk.
Car accident and injury claims in the City of London – making a claim for compensation is your right.
Many people injured in accidents that were not their fault do not understand their rights under law. Being injured in an accident that was not your fault means that you are entitled, legally, to make a compensation claim. This is so that you can receive compensation for your injuries and any lost wages and expenses that have arisen as a result. But did you also realise that it will bring the person responsible to justice and make them liable for their actions? The claim process will also highlight the other person’s negligence and how your accident happened, and if it at all possible you can prevent the same thing happening to someone else.
What will it cost?
New legislation means that legal aid is no longer available for accident victims. Many people making car accident and injury claims in the City of London benefit from a No win No fee agreement with their solicitor. This means that should you lose there will be no fees liable to be paid. If you should win your fees will come out of the overall payout you receive. This and any other cost will be made clear from the start of the process..
