    Victim of a fall in Smethwick


    Every year there are thousands of accidents in Smethwick and no win, no fee’ claims are the most common way of dealing with them. In this article we’ll look at some of the things you should consider when you’ve been the victim of a fall in Smethwick and how you can improve your chances of getting the full amount of compensation to which you should be entitled.

    Claiming when you’ve been the victim of a fall in Smethwick

    First of all you need to work out whether you’re entitled to claim for compensation in the first place. Under the law you will be able to claim if you can show that the injury was not your fault, it was the fault of someone else, you were hurt badly enough to require medical treatment and the accident happened within the last three years. That three year time limit is imposed on all claims except those which happen to children. In their cases they will have until the age of 18 at which point that time will start ticking. They can make a claim before then, but they are under no obligation to do so.

    Getting advice

    Not many of us understand personal injury law well enough to be our own guides so it can be a good idea to speak to an expert. The easiest and best way to do this is by picking up the phone and speaking to one of our operatives. All you need to do is get in touch and they will handle anything you need. In particular, they will be able to tell you whether or not you can make a claim and if so how much this might be.

    One of the ways we can make this estimate is by using our 30 second test. This tells you very quickly whether you have a chance of winning your case and if so roughly how much you might expect to receive in compensation. We list the average claims for each type of accident. Although your claim will be as unique as you are this is something which you can use to set expectations at an early level as you begin to make a personal injury claim.

    Paying for a claim

    Because nothing can be taken for granted when making personal injury claims it’s important to work on the basis of ‘no win, no fee’. This means that if you do not win your case for any reason you will not have to pay a single penny. It reduces the risks of being forced into financial difficulty because you decided to make a claim.
