    Personal Injury Solicitors in Kingham

    It is understandable to feel a little uncertain of your footing when you’re trying to find a solicitor in Kingham. However, to help you out here are a few facts that everyone should know when making a claim.

    The three year rule

    Some claims can be invalidated even before they start. That’s because the UK operates something it calls a three year rule. This is the maximum amount of time you can allow to drift past before you decide whether or not you want to make a claim. If you leave it any longer than this then it doesn’t matter how strong your claim is there will be no chance of winning any compensation. That may seem unfair, but it’s simply the way of the world.

    Making your case

    Personal injury cases work in much the same way as other courts in the UK. In order to be able to make a claim you’ll need to be able to prove your case. The courts will want to see that the accident was the fault of the defendant and that the injury has had a negative impact on your life, before they decide to rule in your favour. If the other side decides to fight it, you’ll need evidence on your side if you’re going to prevail.

    Paying for your case

    Here’s the big worry for many people, but it’s one that needn’t be such a big cause for concern. If you make a claim you’ll have to pay for it and the amount can vary depending on your lawyer.

    In most cases the case will work on the basis of a percentage of the compensation claim. This can vary but in general terms you should keep at least 70% of your overall claim.

    However, if you lose your case many firms offer something called no win no fee*.

    If you want to make a claim without the worry of finding the money then this is a good option for you. Always remember to look at the small print, though, as some no win no fee* deals are not as clear cut as you might think.
