First time claimants often have a lot of questions relating to their compensation claims, with how we estimate the potential value of their claim, what they can claim for and the cost of personal injury lawyers in North Somerset among the most common.
Many of these questions come as a result of the distress caused by the accident. It’s always going to be a worrying time for innocent victims who have sustained serious injuries through no fault of their own, as they’re the ones who are left to pick up the pieces after the accident.
For those who are particularly seriously injured it can be distressing for their family too, who are left trying to help however they can by working longer to earn more money to ensure that the bills still get paid or trying to transport their loved ones to hospital appointments.
Fortunately Accident Advice Helpline have more than a decade of experience in working in personal injury so we’re in a position to answer any questions you might have about claiming for compensation.
What can I claim for, and how do you work out what my claim is worth?
When it comes to working out the exact value of a claim, it’s not as simple as looking through a manual to find a figure awarded for a specific injury sustained in a particular circumstance.
Each claim is processed on an individual basis as each case is unique. This means that we take a range of factors into account before we can estimate what the minimum and maximum amount of compensation that you might receive for a successful case.
These factors include things like the amount of physical and emotional pain and suffering it has caused, the financial implications such as any medical costs or loss of earnings, and how it’s affected your lifestyle and ability to do the things you enjoy the most.
Can I afford the cost of personal injury lawyers in North Somerset?
The financial aspect should not be a deciding factor in your ability to make a claim. So when it comes to the cost of personal injury lawyers in North Somerset our no-win no-fee* policy has made it possible for everyone to make a claim if they’re entitled to do so.
This policy means that our lawyers won’t ask for any upfront costs, or even to be paid for our time in advising you on the steps to take in the process or answering questions. The only money that we do take comes as a “success fee” from a successful settlement, and this is capped at 25%.
