If you have been injured in an accident in Lancaster and your injuries have stopped you from working or have otherwise affected you financially, then you may be thinking about a claim for Lancaster compensation. If so, there are some things that you need to know, things that will benefit you before and during the claims process. Let’s go through them:
Facts about making a claim for Lancaster compensation
- You are legally entitled to make a claim
There is a moral dilemma many people face when deciding on whether to make a claim, but for many people, this is trumped by the fact that it is one’s legal right to make a claim for compensation if they have been injured in an accident that was not their fault. And the fact is that this compensation can do one a lot of good, paying for medical bills plus much more.
- You could have your compensation a lot sooner than you think
It’s a common misconception that claims take months and months and months. We can actually process many claims in as little as 6-8 weeks, and our solicitors always try to speed up the process as much as possible, to get our clients their compensation fast.
- No win, no fee is the best option when making a claim
No win, no fee was introduced in 1995, simply to ensure that everybody could have access to legal justice, no matter their financial situation. Conditional fee agreements are now commonplace in personal injury claims because they are the best option – they stipulate that if your claim loses, then you do not have to pay your own solicitor’s fees.
- You can claim for loss of earnings and out-of-pocket expenses
Alongside your injury claim, you can also claim for special damages, which include loss of earnings and overtime and all out-of-pocket expenses related to your accident.
- Lancaster compensation is available for all kinds of accident
You can make a claim for a wide variety of accidents. Common types of accident include road traffic accidents, slips, trips and falls and accidents in the workplace. Basically, so long as an accident was not your fault, then you can make a claim for financial compensation.
