The steps involved in making a ‘no win, no fee’ Rutland claim
When it comes to making a ‘no win, no fee’ Rutland claim for compensation there are various different steps that need to be taken. The process itself is very straight forward; however, depending on the nature of the accident involved and the injuries sustained, it can be quite a lengthy process.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have put together a simple guide for you to read through to understand what we will have to do to recover your compensation if we take on your ‘no win, no fee’ Rutland claim.
In the first instance, Accident Advice Helpline will have to gather all the necessary information to ensure that they can work on your ‘no win, no fee’ Rutland claim.
The first step is to help establish whether or not you have a valid claim. In order to be able to make a claim, you have to meet the legal requirements. These include making sure that you have been injured as a result of an accident that was not your fault, and which occurred within the last three years.
There are certain situations in which not all of these criteria apply, so it is important that you speak to your solicitor to find out whether or not you could be able to make a claim, even when you think you might not.
Alternatively, you can take our 30 second test which you will find here on our website, and this can provide you with all the information you need.
Once your solicitor has all the information they need regarding your eligibility and what happened during your accident and immediately afterwards, the next job is to find the evidence to help support your case.
This will in the first instance include gaining access to your medical records. Your medical records will show that you received the injuries you said that you did from the accident, and will help provide a timeline for when the accident occurred (just in case this is disputed at any point in the process).
Your records will also show that the injury you are claiming for was not pre-existing.
Your ‘no win, no fee’ Rutland solicitor will also seek to gather other evidence if at all possible. This can include CCTV footage of the accident, or perhaps photographs taken from the scene. This is especially useful if the accident occurred in a public place, for example, if you tripped over something that could be easily removed or rectified by the time your claim is started.
Where possible your ‘no win, no fee’ Rutland solicitor may also seek to gain witness statements from anyone else that was present at the time of the accident.
