What is a no win no fee accident in Bassetlaw claim?
No win no fee is a means a starting legal action without having to pay any money upfront. Then if the case is not won, the losing party does not have to pay any legal fees as the law firm handling the case only gets paid if it is successful.
Many people think this is the best way to deal with legal matters, as you are not then taking any financial risk, and some think the lawyers work harder as they know if they do not win they will have been working for nothing.
The claim part relates to compensation, if you have been injured in an accident that was not your own fault. As long as you sustained injuries in the accident that needed medical attention, and the accident took place some time within the last three years, you can claim compensation.
Bassetlaw is of course a place, but it does not matter where you are in the UK, the same rules apply.
Put them all together and you have no win no fee accident in Bassetlaw claim.
How much will you get?
So now if you know your situation fits the criteria, and you have not got to find any money for your claim to be started, the next thing most victims want to know is how much are they likely to get.
No one can guarantee an amount at the start of a claim, as there are too many things that can affect it. It is not just pain and suffering that would be claimed for, but also how the injuries have affected your life, and any costs and losses that you have had to bear because of the accident.
Two people with similar injuries can have totally different personal circumstances, and one be affected much more by the injury, and have many more expenses. This means they would be awarded different amounts, as everything has to be account for when you are making a compensation claim.
You can get an estimate of the amount though by taking our 30 second test. This lets you know if you have a valid claim, and then gives you an estimate of what your compensation could be.
