FAQs about a personal injury accident claim in Kensington and Chelsea
When people decide to make a personal injury accident claim in Kensington and Chelsea, they generally have lots of questions and worries about the process. In the light of this, we decided to answer a few of the main questions here, to help you get a feel for what will happen during your case.
Here are the answers to some of the questions most commonly asked by our clients:
How do I know whether I am eligible to claim compensation?
This is an easy question to start with – there are three main requirements in terms of eligibility:
- The accident must have happened in the last three years
- You must not have been to blame for the accident
- You should have received medical attention for your injuries
Although the three-year time limit applies in the majority of cases, as with most rules there are exceptions. This timescale can sometimes be extended, for example, in cases where a minor was involved.
How much compensation will I get from a personal injury accident claim in Kensington and Chelsea?
Although we cannot state a definite amount of compensation, we can offer an estimate. You can get this by going to our website and taking the 30-second test. This is a compensation calculator that returns a figure when you answer a few basic questions about your accident.
Alternatively, an estimate of the compensation can be provided by our helpline staff. Just call the numbers provided below, and we will be able to give you an idea of the compensation amount.
What does no win, no fee* mean for compensation claims?
No win, no fee* is a method of paying for compensation claims that minimises your personal financial risk. It means that you will not have to pay your solicitor’s fees if your case is lost. All of our in-house lawyers work on this basis, so you know exactly where you are when it comes to financing your personal injury accident claim in Kensington and Chelsea.
