Are you looking for legal advice in Craven? Have you suffered an accident of any kind and been injured? If the accident was caused to you by someone else, through their actions of negligence, you may have a claim for compensation. In this case, you might be seeking advice from Craven no win no fee accident lawyers.
Why no win no fee?
No win no fee means you do not have to find money to get your case started. Your Craven no win no fee accident solicitor will work on your behalf on this basis. This arrangement replaces the old legal aid system which has gone, but so that cash-strapped accident victims should have access to justice, the no win no fee arrangement was introduced. After all, you have enough to worry about if you are trying to recover from injuries, and if you can’t work, you may have suffered a disastrous fall in income.
Who can help me with my Craven no win no fee accident claim?
You could have suffered an accident in many different ways, where someone else was to blame, or is proven negligent. These include:
- Road traffic accidents
- Transport and travel accidents
- Accidents at work
- Work-related accidents
There many other claim scenarios. We’ve given a few examples here.

We’ll talk it through with you, to check your claim qualifies, and to help you complete the paperwork. Once you’ve checked and signed the forms, we find you your personal injury solicitor who will handle your case.
How much compensation will I receive?
Each case is unique, and the court takes into account all individual factors, so for example, if it turns out the claimant needs on-going medical care, the award will recognise that. Your compensation will include a sum for the pain suffering and inconvenience of your injuries, and also the extra costs and expenses you have to meet will be considered.
Having said that, there is a published scale of values for different kinds of injuries, and we’ll be able to tell you when you call, an estimate of what you could receive, if your claim is successful. If it is not, you won’t have to pay your solicitor’s legal fees. In your first meeting, it’s a good idea to ask your solicitor for a copy of their terms and conditions, so you know where you stand from the outset.
