Frequently asked questions
Can I claim personal injury compensation for an illness?

How much will claiming cost?
If you claim through us, we will handle your claim under a no win no fee* contract, so you will not have to pay any legal costs upfront.
How long do I have to claim?

But you can only claim once, so make sure that you are fully recovered before you claim, else you may not get all of the compensation that you would have been entitled to!
