UK claims and no win no fee
In the UK, claims in respect of personal injuries are dealt with on a no win no fee basis. This means that your UK lawyer will take on your case if they think it’s valid and if, ultimately (and unusually), the case reaches a court hearing and the case is lost, you, the claimant, have no fee to pay.
UK bike claims and legal fees
In addition, in the UK, bike claims which are successful have their legal fees met by the negligent – or losing – party. This, in combination with the no win no fee agreement, means that personal finances play no part in UK bike claims for personal injury. This is doubly beneficial, since such injuries often affect people financially due to:
- Unpaid time off work
- Taxi costs due to loss of vehicle/inability to drive
- Replacement of belongings (damaged clothes, spectacles, children’s car seats)
- Need for aides and gadgets to carry out day-to-day activities
- Higher gas and electricity bills from being at home more during recovery
UK bike claims and the needs of the individual
At Accident Advice Helpline, we appreciate that everyone needs a little guidance through the claim process. Many people who have suffered a personal injury may be resident in the UK but may originally be from elsewhere; or while a claimant may be a UK resident and citizen, or born in the UK, English may not be their first language. We are aware that this may make the process of bringing a personal injury claim unfamiliar, or at worst, intimidating. Our patient, friendly and sympathetic staff go out of their way to understand the personal circumstances of the person they are speaking to and to assist in making the process as easy as it can be. If a claim proceeds, be assured that all our legal partners are used to dealing with people of many different backgrounds and that arranging an interpreter during UK bike claims for personal injury compensation is not unusual.
In the UK, claims for personal injury compensation can take some time. UK law regarding litigation in general and personal injury in particular has developed over hundreds of years, being affected by case law and statute (parliamentary laws). It is difficult to simplify an area of law which, much of the time, is naturally complicated and where each case very much depends upon the facts. It is always worth bearing in mind that even cases which appear initially simple can take some time to settle or conclude. However, this is no reason not to proceed with a claim which could result in compensation for you and which may go some way towards putting you back in the financial position you might have been in had the accident not occurred. Accident Advice Helpline has over 15 years’ experience in helping people bring many different kinds of claims and guiding them through the process, whether it be over weeks, months or occasionally years.
