One of the most common types of personal injury claims is for road traffic accidents. Indeed it’s more likely that you’ll claim for this kind of incident than anywhere else, so whether it’s for a minor shunt or something more serious it’s a good idea to know how you can go about it. Here’s how you can find lawyers who offer ‘no win, no fee’ in Breckland and can help you make a claim after a car incident.
Finding ‘no win, no fee’ in Breckland
The first thing to note is that not all lawyers are set up to cope with this type of claim. Personal injury law is highly complex and most law firms will only specialise on certain types of claim. That’s why it’s very important to make sure that any law firm you look to use is set up to help with your particular type of claim.
Who will you claim against
When we take to the roads we are all required by law to carry third party car insurance. This is to protect us against any damage or injury we cause to others. There can be problems with this. For example if the other driver is not insured you may not be able to get paid for anything.
When this happens the Motor Insurers’ Bureau can step into the breach. They are perfectly set up to provide compensation when it’s not possible to do so from the other driver. It avoids people who obey the law being penalised because they have been hit by someone who does not.
The best way to get started is to call our advice line. We have a team of experts on hand all day and night ready and waiting to help with anything you need. All you need to do is tell them a little about your case and they will do everything in their power to help you out. Think of it as being a little like dipping your toe in the water to find out more about what you can claim for before you get started.
Who was to blame
Obviously, the driver who is deemed to have been responsible for the accident will have to pay for any damage caused, but it’s not always quite as open and shut as that appears. It is possible that you could also be deemed to have been partially responsible in which case it could affect the amount you can claim.
Although many of these cases are open and shut – and tend to be over within a couple of months they are not always that straightforward which is why it’s a good idea to find people who can work on the basis of ‘no win, no fee’ in Breckland.
