Can the Wolverhampton ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers help me?
To find out if the Wolverhampton ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers could help you then have a look at the following questions.
- Was your accident caused by someone else? This is crucial to any forthcoming personal injury claim and is very important if the Wolverhampton no win no fee* lawyers are going to help you. There are many ways in which someone could have been responsible for your accident and some of them are more obvious than others. If another driver was speeding and drove into the side of your car, injuring yourself and your passengers, then it is fairly obvious that they were to blame. It is not always so obvious with workplace accidents. Here, the employer may not even have been on site at the time of the accident yet still could have been to blame. This is because they did not put the policies and procedures in place that would have prevented the accident from occurring. If the accident was someone else’s fault then the Wolverhampton no win no fee* lawyers may be able to help you start a personal injury claim for compensation.
- Did you receive medical attention for your accident? The personal injury claims system has to have an injury to work. There has to be evidence of that injury and the best way of providing this is from your medical notes that refer to the injury that you suffered in the accident. These notes can be presented as part of your personal injury claim. Most clients also attend a medical assessment appointment with a medical expert during which a medical assessment report is prepared about their injuries. This is normally with a local doctor.
- Did your accident take place in the last three years? The personal injury system has imposed a legal time limit for personal injury claims. The claim has to be made within three years. It is highly unlikely that your claim will come to court but it may do and so the legal limit has to apply. In practice, it is always better to start the claim as soon as possible as opposed to waiting until close to the legal limit – this may not leave enough time.
