Victims sometimes ask Accident Advice Helpline advisers, what is a South Lakeland ‘no win, no fee’ accident claim? It is one of many questions they are asked by innocent victims considering claiming compensation.
What is a South Lakeland no win no fee claim?
A ‘no win, no fee’ accident claim is a way of claiming the compensation you could be legally entitled to, without having to worry about how you will finance your claim. You do not have to find any money for the claim to be started, or if the claim is lost, so we do not ask victims to take any financial risk at all.
Who can make a claim for a non fault accident in South Lakeland?
Anyone who fits the criteria can make a claim for their non fault accident in South Lakeland, and the rules say:
- You must have been in an accident that was not your own fault
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- Your injuries must have been severe enough to need medical attention
- The accident should have happened with the last three years
Fitting these rules means that you are entitled to make a compensation claim.
How long does a no win, no fee accident claim take?
To this question, you will get the same answer as if you had asked how long is a piece of string – no one knows until it gets to the end. Most claims take a few months, but there are times our claimants have received their compensation in just a few weeks.
Do I get less by making a no win, no fee accident claim, than if I paid the fees?
No you do not, the award is the award however much it may be, and how you finance your claim is of no concern to anyone except Accident Advice Helpline and you.
Have you any idea how much I will get?
No-one can be certain at the start of a claim how much your award will be. All we can do is give you an estimate based on previous claims, and you can get this by completing the very simple 30-second test on our website.
Can other people confirm that you are as good as you say you are?
There are statements from past claimants on our website, but there are also some on independent sites such as Trustpilot and Feefo, where claimants have taken in it upon themselves to extol our virtues and to tell everyone how glad they were they chose Accident Advice Helpline to help with their personal injury compensation claim.
Apart from past claimants, we have the full recommendation of the UK consumer champion, Esther Rantzen. Esther does not put her name lightly to anything, but after over 11 years of association, she is still happy to be connected to ours.
