Suffering injury in a car accident that wasn’t your fault is a traumatic experience that can cause emotional suffering as well as physical. If you have been involved in a Liverpool car accident, or indeed one anywhere in the UK, it is worth knowing that you may be able to claim compensation for your suffering if you meet certain criteria.
Who can make a claim for personal injury?
If you meet the following criteria, you may be able to start a claim:
- The accident happened within the last three years
- It was not your fault
- Your injuries were treated at the accident scene, or soon after
These criteria are quite strict, but there are certain circumstances when the time limit can be extended – when a minor is involved, for example. Claiming against a third party who acted negligently means that you cannot be to blame for causing the accident.
Claiming no win, no fee for your Liverpool car accident
One of the problems when trying to decide whether to start a claim is the financial side of taking legal action through the courts. In many cases the cost can be prohibitive, but in the case of personal injury claims there is a system in existence that allows you to claim without making any upfront payments.
No win, no fee also means that you will not be liable to pay your solicitor’s fees if your case is lost, so protecting your personal finances at a difficult time in your life. We process all claims using no win, no fee as we believe that it places the needs of innocent accident victims to the forefront of the entire process.
