    Compensation claim in Sandbach

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Sandbach

    What does no-win, no-fee* mean?

    If you have sustained injuries in an accident which was not your fault then you have the right under UK law to seek compensation. Whether you’ve been through the process of compensation claim in Sandbach or not then you may be familiar with the saying “no-win, no-fee*” which is often associated with compensation claims. However, you may not be aware of what it is exactly that no-win, no-fee* means:

    What is no-win, no-fee*?

    Put simply, it means exactly what it says. If your claim is unsuccessful then you don’t have to pay the solicitor seeking a compensation claim in Sandbach on your behalf. In many cases, fees are either charged once an offer of settlement is made or can be claimed directly from the person who caused the accident in question.

    Do claimants have to pay up front?

    Claimants need to pay nothing upfront. No-win, no-fee* means that the person seeking a compensation claim in Sandbach does not have to pay any upfront costs at all. Not even an administration fee to open a file.

    What happens if the claimant loses?

    Just as you often don’t need to pay fees to an Estate Agent if they fail to sell a property, if a no-win, no-fee* case is unsuccessful then you owe nothing.

    If you’ve had an accident which wasn’t your fault but which was caused by the negligence or lack of care of another person then UK Law gives you the right to seek a compensation claim in Sandbach from the person who caused your accident. In a vehicle collision, finding that person is relatively simple as they are often the person driving the other vehicle. However, in the case of a fall in a public place then your claim may be made towards the body which owns the building or is responsible for the upkeep of the public place. That body may be a council, a health authority or a shopping centre management company.

    When you can make a compensation claim in Sandbach

    In order for your case to be heard, your accident must have occurred within 3 years of making your claim. However, most people prefer to make their case as soon as possible as the events are fresh in their mind and in the minds of any witnesses they wish to call.
