    "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."

    Esther Rantzen

    Stoke-on-Trent No Win No Fee Accident

    One of the main reasons people cite for not making a compensation claim, is they think they cannot afford to take the risk of losing. The general opinion seems to be that if they lose the will face a large bill for legal fees, which for many would bankrupt them. This is a common misconception based on out of date information. These days, if you wanted to claim compensation because of injuries caused by someone else in an accident in Stoke-on-Trent for example, making a Stoke-on-Trent no win no fee accident claim would take that fear away. 

    Why a Stoke-on-Trent no win no fee accident claim works for everyone 

    The laws surrounding personal injury claims change all the time, just like the rest of the laws in the UK. The ones relating to financing claims altered in 2000, after the withdrawal of legal aid to assist people with them.

    Legal aid was replaced with the conditional fee agreement, which meant that if the claim was lost, no fees were payable. This is why it very quickly became known as no win no fee, and that is how most people refer to it.

    The beauty of the no win no fee agreement is that it does not discriminate between the wealthy and the not so wealthy. It allows any innocent victim to make a claim, no matter what their financial state is. 

    Getting the truth from Accident Advice Helpline 

    This is not the only information bandied about when people are considering claiming compensation. Other reasons given for not making claims include:

    • It takes too long
    • Its not worth the effort
    • My injuries are not serious enough
    • Claiming compensation is wrong 

    For many of the victims who let compensation pass them by, if they just took a few minutes to call Accident Advice Helpline, they would find out the truth about making a claim, and many of them would reconsider their decision. 

    If your injuries needed medical attention, then they were serious enough to make a claim for. How long it takes can vary from claim to claim, but when we are able to deal with many of our claims over the phone, that helps speed things up.

    Effort wise, there is very little needed by the claimant. Over14 years of making successful claims has allowed us to make the processes simple and efficient, and we take all the hard work of your shoulders. This leaves you to concentrate on what you should be doing, recovering from your injuries. 

    As for it being wrong to claim compensation, this is the hardest reason of all to understand. These same victims would happily claim for damage to their car or home, so why not for damage to their body or mind?
