Personal Injury Claims
If you have suffered injury as a result of someone else’s fault or negligence, you may be about to enter the world of "personal injury claims" and considering making a claim for compensation. Making a claim for compensation can be an expensive undertaking, but you may find that the legal costs of your case are covered by your motor or house contents insurance policy. For those with no legal insurance coverage, firms of personal injury solicitors offer their services and take up compensation cases on a “no win no fee” basis.
Personal Injury Claims Solicitors
The technical term for this method of employing a solicitor is called a "conditional fee agreement" and is a way of funding your case without the need to pay legal costs upfront. If your claim is not successful, you will not have to pay solicitors’ fees, although you may be liable to pay the costs of the other party, and to reimburse your solicitor for expenses incurred on your behalf, such as police report fees or medical report fees.
If your claim is successful and you win your case, your solicitors will recover legal fees from the opposing party together with a “success fee”, an enhancement on the basic lawyers’ costs reflecting the solicitors' risk in this type of agreement.
No Win No Fee Claims
Under UK law, a person who has suffered through the fault of a third party is entitled to claim compensation for their injury. If the prospect of paying heavy legal expenses upfront has deterred you from suing for damages, a firm of personal injury solicitors may be able to help you.
Let them chase the case for you. It would take you lots of time and money to chase the people you need to speak to about your claim, maybe the police in the event of a road traffic accident the other driver and all the insurance companies involved. Not to mention Doctors, and loss adjusters. This can take dozens of phone calls or visits to various companies and knowing who to speak to and getting hold of the correct person is cetarinly no easy.
Allow your solicitor to handle the claim for you and you can carry on with your life whilst this is being done for you.
Remember if your case is suitable, they will take up your claim on a conditional fee basis, so that you can receive the compensation to which you are entitled.
