Every single day, people in the UK get hurt in accidents through no fault of their own. These people are often left with pain, suffering and discomfort, not to mention the burden of additional costs. If these people are left to face this alone, then it can become an increasingly stressful and traumatic time.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we do not feel that this is fair. We believe that if the accident victim is an innocent party, they should be compensated in order to help them through this terrible time. As a nationwide law firm, we are able to provide the help, advice, assistance, support and legal representation that these people need. We ensure that these people get justice and cash compensation. To do this, we employ in-house teams of accident lawyers. One of these teams is our no win no fee in Stainforth team.
The no win no fee in Stainforth team
The no win no fee in Stainforth team get asked many questions from our customers and potential customers. The most common question asked is, “If I make an accident compensation claim with the no win no fee in Stainforth team, what can I claim for?”
To explain this clearly, we can break down the types of compensation into two groups:
- Special damages are claimed to cover the extra payments you have to make following an accident. Any extra costs which you incurred as a result of the accident can be claimed back under special damages. One example of this is the cost of any medical treatment not covered by the NHS. Another is adaptations made to your home if you are left disabled. Smaller extra costs are also included, such as extra transport costs, and if you are off work because of your injuries for any length of time, not only will you lose income but also pension contributions. You can ensure all of these are recouped as special damages included in your accident injury claim.
- General damages relate to your specific injuries, and the cash compensation award is likely to be based on their severity. If the injuries are severe, for example if victim has been left disabled, then the compensation will be markedly higher than if the victim suffered minor injuries which healed with no lasting effects.
If you have been an accident victim and would like more information on making an accident injury compensation claim, or you would like to find out more about special damages and general damages, please get in touch with us.
