A no win no fee serious injury claim is another way of describing high level personal injury claims for compensation. They are usually handled by companies called compensation providers like Accident Advice Helpline. They are called a no win no fee serious injury claim because they do not require the client to pay an upfront legal fee to get the process started. In fact, starting off the process is incredibly simple. It just involves one phone call (any time of the day or night) to Accident Advice Helpline.
Any type of injury, physical or psychological, can be the subject of a no win no fee injury claim. Some examples are given here.
No win no fee serious injury claim – brain injuries and road accidents
Closed head injuries can be caused by car accidents. When a car slows down very quickly or is hit when it is stationary by a car moving at speed the occupants are jolted around. The drivers and the passenger’s heads are thrown forwards and backwards and so are their brains. The front of the skull has some big ridges inside it and the brain can hit these causing nerve fibres to be stretched and torn. The delicate blood vessels in the brain can also break causing bleeding into the brain.
Motorcycle accidents can cause a different type of brain injury called an open head injury. Here, the skull is open and the brain is exposed. This sometimes happens when the head hits a sharp object like the brake lever of a motorbike. If you have been injured in this way and the accident was caused by someone else, you may be able to claim compensation. The personal injury lawyers that work with Accident Advice Helpline can investigate a claim against the motor insurance policy of whoever caused the accident.
No win no fee serious injury claim – brain injuries and work accidents
Both open and closed head injuries can be caused in work place accidents typically after a fall from a height. However, workplace accidents involving heavy machinery also cause crushing injuries. This is where the head is crushed between two objects. It may involve heavy plant or machinery being used without the appropriate safety precautions. If this is the case and you have been injured because of someone else’s fault you may be able to claim on an Employers Liability Insurance.
