    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Solicitor in Hambledon


    Recent years have seen a slight rise in the number of fraudulent claims being made for personal injury compensation. The effects of these have seen the vast majority of claimants negatively affected. In this article we’ll look at how these might apply to you if you’re looking for a personal injury solicitor in Hambledon.

    Legal aid

    The first one to go was legal aid back in 1997. We’ve become used to this new situation these days but at the time it was a major problem as suddenly people found themselves having to make an uncomfortable decision. Did they take the view that they were entitled to make a compensation claim and risk losing out financially if they lost or did they avoid taking the risk altogether.

    The result of this was that many people missed out on compensation and ironically it was those who were most in need who suffered the most.

    Citizens Advice

    The amount of official advice being offered to people who are looking to make a claim has reduced a little in recent years which means it’s difficult to find the information you need to make a claim.

    Partly to respond to this, we’ve filled our website with useful advice and information about every aspect of personal injury law.

    Open Claim Calculator

    We also offer free advice over the phone via a 24 hour helpline. So, if you think you might have a good case this is the place you should go.

    Lawyer payments

    There have also recently been changes to the way lawyers can reclaim their costs.

    They used to be able to reclaim costs from the other side, but this no longer applies to small claims cases. Also there were talks about raising the limit of small claims court to ensure that more people fell into this limit.

    This increases the amount you’ll have to pay when you win your case which is a penalty for people who were making a legitimate claim.
