At Accident Advice Helpline we’re frequently asked questions relating to what people can claim for, the cost of personal injury lawyers in North Tyneside and their eligibility to make a claim.
Accidents are always stressful for those affected, and that’s why we want to use our experience in personal injury to make things simpler. We’ve been working in personal injury since 2000, so we’ve got a wealth of experience in all kinds of claims, helping people to earn substantial amounts of compensation that is rightfully theirs.
It’s your legal right to pursue a claim for compensation if you’re involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, yet many choose not to make a claim because of fears relating to money and their eligibility.
The cost of personal injury lawyers in North Tyneside
One prime example is that people don’t know if it’s worth making a claim by the time they’ve paid the cost of personal injury lawyers in North Tyneside. They believe that the amount of compensation they receive won’t really make it worth the time and money invested into legal representation. However, we have a 100% no-win no-fee policy which means that claimants pay no upfront costs whatsoever.
The only money that our lawyers do take comes as a “success fee” which is capped at 25% of any settlement that you are awarded. We don’t even charge claimants for our time answering your questions or giving advice on your claim.
What can I claim for?
The amount of compensation you can claim for is worked out on a case-by-case basis, and we investigate various aspects of the case before we can provide you with an estimate on the minimum and maximum potential compensation payout.
This includes looking at the amount of physical and emotional pain and suffering caused by the incident, the prognosis from the doctors and your recovery period, the financial implications such as any medical costs or loss of earnings incurred, and the ways in which your lifestyle has been affected.
Who can claim?
Anyone who has been injured in an accident that wasn’t his or her fault may be entitled to make a claim, provided that the accident happened in the last three years.
Three of the most common incidents in which accidents happen that lead on to compensation claims are road traffic accidents (in which the driver and passengers in the innocent vehicles involved and the passenger in the offending vehicle can claim), workplace incidents and slips, trips and falls.
How do I claim?
The best way of finding out if you might be able to make a claim is take our online test. It takes just 30-seconds to complete and all you need to do is answer a few simple questions about the incident and we’ll tell you if you might be entitled to make a claim or not.
We will then contact you to get all of the information we need to build the best possible case for you, so that we can claim every penny that is rightfully yours.
