Sometimes there is no way of predicting when or where and accidents is going to happen, and that means we have no way of preventing it. The consequences, therefore, are often serious with physical and psychological effects taking time to get over and the cost of injury claims lawyers in Medway becomes a real point of concern.
The belief is that if you’re going to make any kind of successful compensation claim, you need to spend a significant amount of money. While this might be fine for some people who are particularly well off, others just don’t have hundreds, even thousands of pounds available to spend on a lawyer.
This then becomes even more unlikely if the injury you’ve sustained forces you to take time off work, meaning that you’re not bringing in any kind of income.
Can I claim against my employer?
While many of us work in environments that are safe and comfortable, it only takes one mistake or a faulty machine to cause a serious injury. A lot of potential claimants are discouraged from pursuing their case because they think the claim could put the company in financial difficulties, or that it could compromise their employment.
Businesses have insurance policies in place for exactly this reason. If it can be proven that the company was at fault or negligent, then the insurance would pay the compensation, not the firm directly meaning that it won’t affect the financial stability of the company.
Can I afford the cost of experienced injury claims lawyers in Medway
You’ll still have the essential bills to pay – that won’t change just because you’re injured – and paying for a lawyer then becomes completely out of the question.
At Accident Advice Helpline all of our lawyers work on a 100% no-win no-fee* basis which means that you don’t need to pay us a single penny in advance in order for us to take on your claim.
What can I claim for, and how do I do it?
To get your claim started, the best place to start is with our website. We’ve provided an online test that allows all potential claimants to find out in 30 seconds if they might be able to make a claim, and how much it could be worth.
This estimate will be based on several criteria, although further factors will be considered by our lawyers, and potentially a judge, if we take on the case in order to ensure that you get every penny that you’re entitled to.
You will receive your compensation in two stages, starting with the initial settlement based on the prognosis from the doctors, the accident and the injuries sustained; and the second stage will be any loss of earnings and further expenses.
