Can I get legal aid?
No, you cannot get legal aid to help you with a personal injury claim, but our lawyers work under ‘no win, no fee*’ contracts, so you can still claim without risking your own money.
How much compensation will I get?
The amount of compensation that you are awarded will of course depend on how serious your injury was, but rest assured that your injury lawyer will work hard to get you all of the money that you are entitled to. You can get an estimate of how much your Derbyshire no win, no fee* accident claim is worth by using the compensation calculator our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk.
How long do I have to claim?
You have three years from the date of your accident in which to file your Derbyshire no win, no fee* accident claim with an injury lawyer.
Will I have to go to court?
Probably not, most Derbyshire no win no fee* accident claims are settled out of court.
Can my children claim?
Children can claim compensation – but up to the age of eighteen they must have an adult to claim on their behalf, as a ‘litigation friend’.
Will I have to pay tax on my compensation money?
No, compensation payments are not subject to tax.
Will I have to go to a medical?
It is possible. Medicals are sometimes requested so a specialist can take a look at your injury – so that you get the right amount of compensation! Any medical will be arranged somewhere local to you and shouldn’t take too long.
