One of the biggest concerns for people wanting to claim personal injury compensation is the potential cost to them in terms of specialist legal representation. Taking legal action is often very expensive, but if you make a claim with us we can offer you the services of our independent free claims solicitors.
Having been in the injury claims business for more than a decade, we have been able to build up a network of specialist solicitors upon whom we can call to formulate a case for our customers, and represent them in court if necessary. We call our solicitors ‘free claims solicitors’ because they all work on the basis of no win, no fee**.
What is no win, no fee?
Also called the Conditional Fee Agreement, no win no fee was introduced when legal aid was phased out for personal injury claims. Around the same time, the Citizens Advice Bureau scaled down their help in finding solicitors for victims of accidents, so a new method of paying solicitors’ fees was needed.
In essence, no win no fee means that you do not pay anything to our free claims solicitors in order to start a case, and you can rest assured that you won’t have a big legal bill to pay, even if you are not successful.
This method of paying legal fees is very popular with our customers as it gives them access to the justice system at a time when they most need it, having suffered injuries in an accident through no fault of their own.
Our free claims solicitors
The solicitors we work with are located throughout the UK, so regardless of where you live, you will have access to their specialist knowledge and expertise. Once we have confirmed that you have a legitimate claim, we will immediately recommend the most appropriate solicitor for your case.
As many claims are now processed over the phone you might not be required to visit the solicitor’s office, however some of our customers may need to attend one independent medical assessment as part of their claim. Should you need to travel in relation to any part of your case our free claims solicitors will be able to claim back any out-of-pocket expenses, such as bus fares or parking charges, if you keep all your receipts.
If you think that you have a legitimate claim, and would like some honest, expert legal advice, call our accident helpline and speak to one of our advisors. They will be able to confirm your eligibility to claim, and guide you carefully through the process so you will know exactly what to expect. Call 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
