Injury Solicitors of Totten – Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can I make a claim?
Yes, if you have been injured because of the fault of someone else, you can claim financial compensation through the courts.
2. Who can claim?
Your injury solicitors of Totten will help you to claim if you are the injured person as then you can claim on your own behalf. You would be identified in all documents as the “Claimant“. If the injured person is under the age of 18 the Court will appoint someone to claim on their behalf, and this person is called a “litigation friend” – this is usually a parent or close relative. If the injured person is incapacitated and/or cannot make decisions for themself the Court may appoint a “litigation friend”. Again this is usually a close friend or relative. If a claim is made on behalf of someone who has died, their dependants and/or personal representatives have the right to make a claim.
3. Do I have to be examined?
The injury solicitors of Totten may need you to undergo a medical examination with a medical professional. This is to confirm the extent of your injuries and any long term effects that you may suffer. You will only ever be asked to attend a local examination so you can choose not to use the injury solicitors of Totten but a national legal firm such as Accident Advice Helpline.
4. What is No win No fee*?
No win No fee* means exactly what it says. If you do not win your case you do not pay your solicitor’s fees. This does not include any court costs but your solicitor may be able to arrange an insurance for you to receive help with these. All these things should be explained to you clearly at the start of the claim process.
