Why do I need one?
If you’ve been injured at work, on the road, through medical negligence or had a trip or slip which resulted in permanent damage or medical costs then you might want to seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer.
Injuries are a fact of life that we all have to be aware of. In the last year over 274,000 injuries happened in the work place alone. While medical treatment improves so too does your chance at surviving injuries but not without permanent disability and medical expenses.
What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Personal Injury Lawyers are solicitors whose expertise is in representing and gaining compensation for victims of injury, whose life has been altered by an accident. What they do is important by making sure you are not held financially responsible for injuries you received through the fault of others.
We will take your claim, give you an estimate, and put you in contact with a solicitor for free. These solicitors work on a вЂ?no win no fee’ basis and you even get to keep 100% of any compensation you win.
What does вЂ?No win no fee’ mean?
вЂ?No win no fee’ agreements are more correctly referred to as вЂ?conditional fee agreement’ and they have more or less replaced legal aid as a way of paying for compensation claims. вЂ?No win no fee’ means you pay your solicitor nothing – even if you lose!
If you win then your solicitor’s fees will be paid for by your opponent, although, some solicitors will take a proportion of your compensation but this will never happen with intersolicitors.co.uk who let you keep 100%.
If you do lose, however, you will usually be required to pay your opponent’s legal fees. This is why it is important to find a solicitor with a good success rate. Accident-direct.co.uk has a 98% success rate and can help you get in contact with one of their solicitors.
It is advisable that before you make a claim you take out вЂ?after the event’ insurance, which if you lose pays for your opponent’s legal costs.
How do I make a claim?
Making a claim is simple and free. Go to anyone of our simple claim forms and fill it out with the details of yourself and your case. You’ll be called back and asked about your injury. Your claim will be assessed and, if successful, your information will be passed on to one of their solicitors who will proceed with legal action.
For your claim to be considered it has to pass three criteria. It must have happened within the past three years, there must be evidence that the accident was the fault of the third party and there must be evidence showing the extent of your injuries, such as medical reports.
