    No win no fee in Wigginton


    It’s no stretch of the imagination to say that you’ve come to this page because you’re looking to find a personal injury lawyer who offers no win no fee in Wigginton. But what does that mean in practice? While we have all heard about the concept of no win no fee, what does it mean in the real world?

    A case study

    To illustrate, let’s look at how a typical claim might proceed. Let’s imagine you’ve been in a car accident in which the car you were driving was hit by another vehicle. You break a leg, which has since forced you off work, and you also suffer from whiplash.

    Getting back on your feet could be challenging. If you’ve been forced off work, then there is a natural desire to get going again and you could be struggling with the reduced income that comes as a result. So, here’s the question – can you make a claim?

    The first thing you should do is look at when the accident happened. Under UK law, you have a maximum of three years before you are no longer eligible to make a claim. While this might sound like a long time, many people fail to make the provisions until it’s too late which is something of a shame.

    The next thing to do is to look at your injury. Make a note of what medical treatment you’ve received and any expenses you’ve incurred as a result thereof. For example, the time off work could count as loss of earnings, and if you’re paying for treatment then you should make a note of what you’re paying.

    Proving blame

    The sticking point could come when it comes to proving that the other side was at fault. Accidents are over in a rush and it’s not always possible to be certain about what happened. It’s also entirely possible that the other driver may feel equally strongly that you were at fault, and may even launch a counter claim.

    You can improve your position by gathering as much evidence about the accident as possible. For example, if you have the contact of any witnesses you should pass these onto your lawyer. Remember – as long as you are confident about your case, it is in your interests to get as much information into the case as possible.
