How do I know if I am eligible to make a claim?

Am I eligible to make a No Win, No Fee claim?
If you have had an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be eligible to make a No Win, No Fee claim through us. This simply means that should we not win your case, you will not need to pay as a penny to cover your legal fees. If your case is won you will pay us what is known as a ‘success fee’ which is 25% of the compensation amount obtained.
We will assess the merits of your case and if we deem your case to be admissible we will not take it on.

How much compensation will I receive?
The amount of compensation that you may receive is dependent upon the individual circumstances of your case. The amount will depend on factors such as:
• The severity of the effects of your injuries. How your life has been affected by the injury or illness.
• Financial losses, including how much money you have lost or will lose as a result of your injuries (e.g. loss of earnings, travel expenses).
Compensation is mainly split into two categories. The first is known as “general damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity”, which is compensation for the injury suffered, and the effect it has on the injured person’s day to day life. This includes:
Physical injuries: such as minor soft tissue whiplash injuries to the neck and back, broken bones, lacerations and scaring, and serious head injuries.
Psychological injuries: such as distress, anxiety and PTSD.
We calculate this with reference to certain guidelines and previous cases involving similar injuries that have been decided at court. Valuing a claim involves the solicitor using his or her experience and research skills to ensure the client receives the maximum compensation they deserve.

How is compensation calculated?
The amount of compensation that you will receive is dependent upon a number of factors including:
- The severity of your injuries
- How long your recovery will take
- How long you will be unable to work for
- Your ongoing and future care needs and medical expenses
- Rehabilitation needs such as physiotherapy
- Current and future financial losses
- The psychological impact of your injuries
All of which will be taken into consideration by your solicitor when quantifying your compensation amount. Due to the many different variants involved typical payouts for personal injury range from around £1000 to as high as in the millions.
What is the personal injury claim time limit?
In most cases you need to start your claim within three years of the accident. The exceptions to this rule are when cases involve children or those who are mentally incapacitated to make a claim themselves.
Children do not face the time limit of three years as a claim can be made by an adult on their behalf at any time before they turn 18. There is no time limit for those who are mentally incapacitated to make a claim themselves.
How much will my claim cost?
We will handle your claim on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis. If your claim is successful we will deduct 25% from your settlement figure, known as a success fee.
