If you have been unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident, then your first priority must be receiving medical attention, whether your injuries are obvious or not. Once your situation has been assessed, and your injuries have been treated by a doctor, your next thought may be to consider making a claim for personal injury compensation.
No win no fee lawyers in Newham
Personal injury compensation claims can be made if you have been involved in an accident that happened through no fault of your own. If you wish to claim using no win, no fee services, then the accident must have happened within the last three years, and it must have resulted in injuries requiring medical attention.
To confirm your eligibility for legal representation under the conditional fee agreement, you can make use of our 30-second test. This test will also provide you with an approximate compensation amount, which you could potentially be awarded following a successful claim.
What types of injuries could no win no fee lawyers in Newham be expected to handle?
Personal injury claims can arise from all kinds of accidents, in all kinds of surroundings; accidents are not picky, and law firms cannot be either.
Some examples could be:
- accidents at football matches,
- slips, trips, and falls in shopping areas,
- falls at railway stations,
- accidents due to broken equipment in parks,
- accidents at work, and
- road traffic accidents.
If you qualify to make a compensation claim under the conditional fee agreement (no win, no fee), you should speak to a reputable law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline as soon as you can after your accident.
What will you need to provide?
Personal injury claims do vary greatly, and there is no one-size-fits-all set of guidelines to help you make your claim. Instead, you will be advised by one of our expert advisors dependent on your personal circumstances.
Just as an example, the following details may be useful following a road traffic accident:
- relevant details of the other driver, if possible, which could include registration, name, contact information, and insurance details,
- contact details of any witnesses to your accident, and
- photographs of your car following the accident.
In some situations, you may be too badly injured or disorientated to gather this kind of information. With that in mind, you should see if a trusted person can collate these details on your behalf, if possible. But do not worry if this is not possible – Accident Advice Helpline will still be able to help you.
