The terminology surrounding personal injury claims can be confusing. You may have read phrases such as ‘no win no fee accident in Braintree’ or ‘establishing liability’ for an accident. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we aim to demystify the personal injury claims business and we like to keep things as simple as we can. Here are a few more details about the sorts of legal jargon that you may hear in the world of personal injury claims.
No win no fee accident in Braintree – what is it?
Have you been told that you have had a no win no fee accident in Braintree? This may be because you have had an accident that would qualify for a no win no fee legal service with a legal firm like us. We always try and help our clients to claim if they have the right to do so. We have found that one of the easiest ways to do this is to remove the financial barriers that stop people claiming. Huge upfront legal fees are certainly the main financial barrier and so we have removed it! You will not be asked for any upfront legal fees when you claim through us.
However, in order to qualify for the no win no fee scheme you must have had your accident within the last three years and you must have received medical attention for your injuries.
Establishing liability – explained
Establishing liability is the legal phrase which means sorting out who was to blame for the accident in which you were hurt. This is a vital part of the legal process because this is the person who will be paying your compensation. We simply must identify who was to blame for the accident. This is the first task that our personal injury lawyers will undertake.
You can help with this task by supplying plenty of information about the accident in which you were hurt. If it was a car accident, it is very useful to have a police report which indicates who was to blame – this is excellent evidence for a claim. We can also use witness statements and photographs as evidence in your claim.
