    Injury experts in St Agnes


    Are you looking for injury experts St Agnes, but don’t feel too sure about where to start? Then why not have a look at our quick Q&A article to find out the basics about making a claim.

    When can you claim?

    There are several basic criteria that need to be met before you can decide about whether or not you can make a claim.

    The first is to look at when the accident occurred. Under UK law there is a three year limit on all personal injury claims. If you don’t make a claim within that time then you will automatically be disqualified from claiming.

    The next is to look at blame and the injury. Naturally, you can’t claim for an accident which was your own fault and you can also not claim for minor injuries which have had a mini influence on your lifestyle.

    What the courts are looking to do is to support people who have suffered an accident which is having a severe impact on their life. This might involve ongoing treatment for injuries and any costs involved such as a loss of earnings due to time off work.

    Who can help you?

    There are many lawyers available, but the trick is finding the right one. Most injury experts in St Agnes tend to focus on one or other area of injury law which means it pays to find someone who has specialist knowledge about your type of claim.

    How much will it cost?

    Unfortunately personal injury claims does not qualify for legal aid, so at some point in the process you will probably have to pay some money. The biggest question is at what point?

    The basic approach is to pay your lawyer fees right the way throughout the process in the hope that any compensation more than covers your expense.

    This is worthwhile if you have the money to pay upfront and you don’t mind spending that money with no guarantee of getting it back. You can never be certain how a claim might pan out and any decision will be down to how the court sees the case.

    Therefore, it can be better to choose an option such as no-win, no-fee. This postpones any billing until the end of the process and ensures that you only have to pay if you’ve already won your case.

    That way legal fees are consumed by the compensation. Often a lawyer will be paid by taking a proportion of the personal injury claim so it will feel as if you haven’t paid anything.
