Being injured in an accident – at work, on the road or in a public place – can have long-term repercussions. You might have to spend time in hospital. You might have to take time off work. If the accident was very serious, you might have to make permanent adjustments to your home and your life. So if your accident was caused by someone else, it’s right that they help meet your costs. But where do you start?
We’ve all seen ‘no-win-no-fee’ lawyers’ adverts on TV. They always make the process seem very simple – almost a foregone conclusion. But when you’re thinking about making a personal injury claim, it might not seem that easy. How do you gather evidence? How do you choose a lawyer? Are there any hidden costs?
We can help you understand how to get started with a personal injury claim. We’ll talk you through the different kinds of evidence you might want to collect. And we’ll explain the process you’ll need to go through and what you’ll need to prove. We won’t be able to tell you how likely you are to win, or how much compensation you might get. But we can explain the no-win-no-fee system and other funding options you might want to think about.
