FAQ about working with a solicitor after a road accident
If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident in Leicester, you have likely sustained a number of injuries.
Even in the event of a minor collision, you may find yourself suffering chronic pain, and facing a lengthy recovery period. Many people aren’t aware of their legal rights to claim compensation after such an accident, and so fail to act upon them. Here, we clarify common concerns and answer questions pertaining to working with a lawyer after a road accident in Leicester, helping you realise how straightforward and affordable it is.
How do I know if I qualify to work with a solicitor after a road accident in Leicester?
The law states that if you’ve been injured within the past three years in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you have a right to make a claim. This means that if you’ve been hurt in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, regardless of whether you were the driver or passenger, you could have grounds to work with a personal injury solicitor.
What if I was involved in a road accident in Leicester some time ago?
You have up to three years after your road accident in Leicester to make a claim for any injuries.
How much does it cost to hire a lawyer?
Our no win, no fee policy makes it simple to afford the help of a lawyer. This conditional fee agreement stipulates that unless we win your case, you won’t have to pay for our services. This means no money upfront, helping you get the best possible legal care without having to part with expensive legal fees.
When will I receive the money?
The amount of time it can take to process a claim varies, and depends on a number of factors, such as whether the case is settled out of court. Many of our claimants have only had to wait as little as six weeks to receive their payout in full.
How much is my claim worth?
Each case is individually assessed, and so the amount you could receive in a payout will vary. To get a rough idea, use our simple online claims calculator. You can get a rough idea of what your claim is worth in as little as thirty seconds, but you also have the option of filling in a slightly longer form, and having an Accident Advice Helpline team member call you back with a no-obligation assessment.
