Hartley Wintney in Hampshire is well-placed for accident injury victims seeking to make a compensation claim, and who are suffering injuries through no fault of their own. What could be trickier is to find exactly the right expert to handle your case, when thousands of search returns come back for solicitors or injury lawyers in Hartley Wintney.
Who can advise me about injury lawyers in Hartley Wintney?
Most solicitors these days offer a no win no fee* service, especially in the field of personal injury law, since the old system of legal aid has been abolished, and law makers felt it was important that people without sufficient financial resources to hire lawyers, should still have access to justice. No win no fee* protects both client and solicitor against running up charges for a losing case and you should ask your legal expert to explain it in full before you start your claim. No win no fee* also means that a solicitor will take extra care in judging if the claim is likely to succeed, and this is where the skill comes in, of having the right expertise to make that judgement.
What different types of personal accident injury claims are there?
Personal injury law includes making claims for:
Road traffic accidents
Accidents at work
Illnesses or conditions arising from working practices and conditions
Accidents on holiday or at sea
Illness from food poisoning
Injuries from faulty products

How long will it take to settle my case?
There’s no general answer to this question, but many less serious cases are settled out of court. For example, a whiplash injury which keeps a claimant off work for a week or two, and heals without complication, is often settled by correspondence. Naturally, more complex cases would take longer to negotiate and a court appearance may be involved. A lot depends whether the defendant accepts the liability and how quickly the two parties agree a figure. In cases where a full recovery is not expected, then the court may take future care and support needs into consideration.
