In the past, making a compensation claim for personal injuries could be expensive. Since 1995, this has changed and many solicitors and legal firms are offering their services on a no-win, no-fee* basis. But, not all solicitors do this so how do you go about getting:
1. The best lawyer for your compensation claim and
2. A no win no fee* lawyers service?
Where do you start?
By contacting Accident Advice Helpline, you are making a very good start to your personal injury compensation claim. We will first talk you through the whole process so that you can make an informed choice; this initial call does not tie you into making a claim with us. You are under no obligation at all.
You will be invited to take our 30-second test, a tool which is free to use. We developed this tool to help our customers understand if they have an eligible claim.
After this initial consultation and the use of our 30-second test, if you have been told you have an eligible compensation claim you will be referred to no win no fee* lawyers. These lawyers are experts in the field of personal injury law and they will work hard to get the maximum compensation you deserve.
How will the no win no fee* lawyers work?
They will take down all the details they need to start making a compensation claim on your behalf. This will advise you on the best way to take your claim forward.
They will be confident on taking your claim forward, as you have passed the eligibility test with our 30-second test; but don’t be surprised if they ask far more detailed questions. They need all this to make a strong case.
Will the no win no fee* lawyers tell you how much you can claim?
Yes they will. Being experts in their field means they can be up-front and honest with you about the amount you can claim. The first part of any compensation claim refers to the actual personal injury itself, whether that’s a broken leg or whiplash etc.
The second part of the payment looks to reimburse you for any additional costs you may have had as a result of being incapacitated, whether this is long or short-term. Some clients are unsure what these ‘additional costs’ are but again, your legal team will take you through this whole process.
Your lawyer may ask you for receipts and details of this expenditure, so it’s important you keep as many of these as you can.
How do no win no fee* lawyers help?
Previous to these no-win, no-fee* agreements, making a compensation claim for personal injury depended on the financial circumstances of that individual. For example, if you were wealthy or could afford to bring legal action, then you could do so.
Those people who did not have money available to lodge a legal compensation case, did not do so, effectively missing out on compensation which was rightfully theirs. No win no fee* lawyers, by operating in this way, offer the compensation process to everyone.
