What to do if you have been hurt in Lewes
If someone else was to blame for your accident then you may be able to claim compensation. Personal injury compensation is a tax-free lump sum, to help you get back on your feet after you have been hurt in Lewes, or anywhere else in the UK. You can claim personal injury compensation for any injury, so long as someone else was to blame for your accident and it took place within the past three years.
To get your money, you will need the services of a ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitor. Using a lawyer who will work for you under a ‘no win, no fee*’ contract will ensure that you are not risking your own money by paying upfront fees with no guarantee of a successful outcome. There is no guarantee with a ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyer either, but because they don’t get paid unless you do they will only take on your claim if they are certain they can win!
