If you or somebody close to you has been injured in an accident that was not your fault and you’ve decided to launch a personal injury claim with the assistance of a good solicitor, it will be important for you to realise that the process could take a while to resolve.
This can mean having to wait a long time for any potential payout to hit your bank account. If you’ve suffered an injury that has left you having to take time off from work or pay for additional expenses, it will be most likely that you may come under some added financial pressure. While your solicitor handles your case, you may need to seek additional advice on your financial situation.
Money problems and no win no fee* in Brunston claims
Your solicitor will be able to give you some advice on how to make ends meet if you’re having problems due to the injuries you suffered as a result of an accident that was not your fault, but you can also seek out additional assistance about a no win no fee* in Brunston claim yourself. You may like to talk to Citizens Advice, or use the government’s online benefits eligibility checker to find out what help you might be entitled to from the state.
It will be important to bear in mind that you may have to pay back some or all of any benefits you claim if you’re later awarded compensation. As such, you should always contact the agency that awards you any benefits when you receive your funds to find out where you stand. If you spend your compensation without establishing whether or not you need to pay some back to the government, you could be prosecuted for benefit fraud. This can result in a fine, or even imprisonment.
You’ll typically be awarded no win no fee* in Brunston compensation to cover any additional money you’ve had to spend or income lost when your case is settled. As such, you should keep a record of money lost and or that you had to pay out. Your solicitor will need this to make a claim against the negligent party.
