FAQs on Personal Injury Compensation Claims
Many people are worried about making an accident claim, or don’t actually understand how easy it is. Because of that we’ve put together some of the most commonly asked questions that we receive. Take a look to see if your question is answered below.
How Much Compensation Am I Entitled To Receive?
This depends on how serious your injury was and the type of accident you were involved with. It also include elements such as medical care needed, whether you have lost the ability to work and your earnings, as well as the suffering and pain you went through. Our solicitors will examine each case and will then advise you on how much compensation you could be due. Every single case is different and needs to be assessed on an individual basis, and typically involves us having to review the medical records from the accident.
How Long Does the Compensation Process Take to Complete?
Again, this is entirely down to the specifics of each individual personal injury claim and is related to the insurance details of the third party involved in the accident. We often see accident claim cases resolved inside half a year, but on some occasions have been involved with claims that have taken nearly two years to complete and pay-out. Of course, our personal injury solicitors will work using all of their years of experience to ensure that your case is completed as quickly as possible.
How Much Will Making an Accident Claim Cost Me?
All of the personal injury cases that we handle are conducted under a no win no fee* agreement. This means that you won’t have to pay a penny if the case is not successful and does not result in a compensation pay out. To cover legal expenses and time, our solicitors can charge up to 25% of the settlement sum on the result of a successful claim. If you are not successful you do not pay anything.
If any of your questions are still unanswered, the most effective method is to call our personal injury specialists to discuss the circumstances of your accident – 01252 354 433.
