Below are answers to some of the most common questions we are asked. If you cannot find the answers you are looking for simply call us on Tel 0844 692 3160.
How do I know if I can make a claim?
If you have sustained injuries as a result of an accident that was not your fault, if you have sustained injuries due to your work environment or if you have received negligent medical treatment, then we are here to help you.
We have specialist solicitors who will be able to provide you with advice in relation to your prospects of bringing a successful claim.
How long do I have to bring my claim?
You have 3 years from the date of the accident to bring Court proceedings. If you were under the age of 18 when the accident occurred the 3 year period commences from when you turned 18.
If you have suffered an injury at work that has been brought on by your working environment rather than a specific accident or you have received negligent medical treatment, then the 3 year time period will commence from your date of knowledge, i.e. when you believed that you sustained an injury of significance and that this could have been caused by the negligence/ breach of duty of another.
How long will my claim take to settle?
This depends on whether the responsible party admits liability and the severity of your injuries. A relatively straightforward case where the Defendant admits liability could be resolved in a matter of months. However, if liability is denied by the Defendant and Court Proceedings become necessary then it could take much longer.
How much compensation will I receive?
We are unable to give you an accurate valuation of your claim until we are in receipt of the medical evidence and you have provided details of any other losses that you have sustained as a result of the accident. When we have this evidence we will advise you the likely value of your claim.
Funding of your claim – what is no win no fee and will I have to pay anything?
We will be acting for you under a Conditional Fee Agreement (“no win no fee agreement”). This means that if we are unsuccessful in securing compensation for your injuries then you will have nothing to pay. If you are successful then we will use our expertise to maximise your damages for you.
If I don’t understand something can I call you?
You will have an assigned specialist to deal with your claim and their direct contact number and e-mail will be provided to you for you to contact them. You can be assured that you will be able to deal directly with the person handling your case at all times.
Is my case likely to go to Court?
If the responsible party fail to concede liability for your accident/injuries then we will need to issue Court proceedings. However the majority of cases settle between the issue of Court proceedings and the date of a final hearing. We will provide you with our specialist legal advice along the way to ensure that you are fully informed of the position and prospects of your case succeeding.
