Frequently asked questions
What does 'No Win No Fee*' really mean?
No win no fee* means that if you do not win your claim, you do not have to pay your solicitor a fee. If you win your case you will receive your compensation less a small success fee. Your solicitor will explain the No Win No Fee* agreement to you clearly before you start a claim.
What injuries can I claim for?
You do not have to sustain a serious injury to be entitled to compensation. You are entitled in law to be compensated for any injury arising out of a non-fault accident which you sustain.
How much will I get?
This depends on the extent of your injury
Is there a time limit on submitting a claim for personal injuries?
There is a statutory limit of three years from the date of the accident and a claim can be submitted at any stage during this period. However, if you were under 18 at the time you had your accident, you have until your 21st birthday to bring your claim.
How long will a claim for personal injury take to settle?
This will largely depend on the nature of the injury involved. Straightforward injuries should be resolved and settled within a three to six month period.
Do I need to have reported my injuries to my GP or hospital?
It can be beneficial to have a written record of the injuries either at your GP or hospital but this is not essential. If you have not been to visit your GP or hospital it should not prevent you from presenting a claim.
Who will represent me in my claim for personal injuries?
We have a nationwide panel of specialist personal injury solicitors who will maximise your damages and provide excellent service to you in every case.
Can I be compensated for losses other than injuries?
You are entitled to recover any loss which you incur as a result of an accident including damaged clothing, expenses and loss of earnings.
