Fallen over in London, five questions
Q. Does my broken ankle qualify for compensation?
A. Absolutely. If your condition required medical treatment, then you can seek personal injury compensation.
Q. If you have fallen over in London in a shopping mall because of a pool of slippery liquid, who is my claim against?
A. Your claim will be against the mall itself, or rather, their insurers. We’ll claim for you.
Q.If you have fallen over in London a few weeks ago but haven’t had time to do anything about a claim. Is it too late?
A. No; you can make a claim for any injury as long as it happened in the last three years.
Q. Will you have to pay your solicitor to make a claim?
A. We work on a no-win, no-fee* basis so you will not have to pay us any money to get your claim started, or pay our legal fees if your claim is lost.
Q. Does speaking to us mean you are committed to making a claim, what if you don’t like what you hear?
A. You will not be pressurised in any way to proceed with a claim, and the advice we give you is free any any obligation to proceed.
These are some of the typical questions we get asked by people who have had an accident and feel they have a strong case for claiming compensation. We never promise people that we will recover thousands in compensation but we do fight very hard on your behalf for a fair deal .
