A guide to claiming compensation in Wycombe
You can claim compensation in Wycombe for any injury or illness that you have suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence, i.e, after being injured in an accident that wasn’t ‘your fault’. This brief guide will explain claiming in a little more detail, so that you can reach a decision about whether or not claiming is for you.
Personal injury compensation.
If you have been injured through no fault of your own then you have a right to be compensated for your injury, and for any injury related expenses – such as the cost of medical treatment, or vehicle repair costs.
To get your compensation you will need Wycombe no win no fee lawyers who specialise in injury law. This will increase your chances of making a successful claim, and of making a successful claim without risking your money paying a lawyer who requires paying upfront!
- The other benefit of using Wycombe ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers is that you can be 100 percent confident that they are working hard on your claim, because if they don’t win they don’t get paid!
Personal injury claims are quite common, so unless yours is a complicated case, you will probably get your money quite quickly. Most personal injury claims are settled out of court; this does not mean that the claimants receive less money, in fact sometimes they get more than would have ordered by a court judge. Solicitors aim for out of court settlements to keep legal costs down.
If your claim is successful you will not have to pay tax on the money that you receive, but if you have received state benefits to help you while you were off work recovering, you may be asked to pay that money back.
Can you claim?
If the accident that caused your injury was someone else’s fault then you are eligible to claim compensation – it doesn’t matter where the accident happened.
The injury that you claim for needs to have been seen by a doctor, or another medical professional – when you claim you may be asked to see a specialist. The costs of this medical will be met by the other side. Under the ‘no win, no fee’ agreement you do not have to pay any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful.
- You can check that you are eligible to claim right now by calling our helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone. This is a free service and does not mean that you have to continue your claim with us.
The amount of money that you are awarded will depend on the extent of your injuries, and whether or not you need to claim for any costs, but your Wycombe ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers will make sure that you get all of the compensation that you deserve.
