Information on no-win, no-fee in Aylesbury and starting your claim
Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test can help you start your claim by giving the expert claims advisors the very basics of information they need to put the wheels in motion. In fact, many of the claims we handle are started this way.
Once they know that the accident that happened was not your fault, that the injuries you sustained needed medical attention and this all happened within the last three years, they will know you fit the criteria to make a claim and contact you to find the other information they need.
No-win, no-fee Aylesbury advisors will need to know the accident type
We will need to know what type of accident you sustained your injuries in; was it a:
- Road traffic accident
- Work related accident
- Slip, trip or fall
- Holiday accident
- Animal attack
- Food poisoning
- Accident at school, or college
Any type of accident can be part of a personal injury claim, providing it was not your fault, and it happened no more than three years ago.
No-win, no-fee Aylesbury advisors will need to know what injuries you sustained
The injuries that can result from an accident are numerous, but just a few of them are:
- Back or spine injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Road rash
- Internal injuries
- Joint damage
- Head or brain injuries
- Facial injuries
- Eye injuries
- Burns or scalds
Some of these injuries can have life-changing effects, which needs to be accounted for as part of your personal injury compensation claim. Some of the more common injuries, such as soft tissue injuries and fractures, are not life threatening, but others are. If the victim dies as a result of the accident, their family has three years from the date of death to make their claim.
No-win, no-fee Aylesbury advisors need to know the costs you have incurred
Whenever you are in an accident, it is inevitable you will incur extra costs and losses. Such things as:
- Loss of earnings
- Care costs
- Home adaption
- Home moving
- Travel costs
- Medical expenses
- Any other cost or loss that is a direct result of the accident and your injuries.
All of these can be recovered as part of your claim providing you can prove you paid or lost them.
Apart from all this information, the only other thing they will need is any evidence at all that you have about the accident and the details of whom the claim has to be made against.
Now you can make your claim
All this information is passed on to one of our specialist injury lawyers who will take matters from there. They will calculate the amount they think you should receive for your injuries and start negotiations with the representatives of the guilty party. When injury lawyers have negotiated down to a fine art, reaching settlements out of court is what they expect to happen and very few of our claimants have to go to court.
