Looking for a local no win no fee personal injury solicitors In Chester?
Before you make a claim here’s a few things you should know.
What is a Personal Injury?
A personal injury can be:
- An accident at work
- A road traffic accident
- A mistake during medical treatment
- An accident in the street, in a shop, or in some other public place
Are You Entitled To Claim?
The most common type of personal injury claim is negligence and this has a three 3 time limit for you to make a claim. This means that court proceedings must be issued within three years of you first being aware that you have suffered an injury.
How Much Compensation could you claim?
The amount you can claim depends on the time of injury. You can also claim for loss of earnings and pain and suffering. Also any other financial loss that has occurred or future losses.
How much will it cost to make a claim?
Even if you use a “No Win No Fee” solicitors they will still take a percentage of your claim if the claim is successful. Find out what their charges are, hourly rates, phone calls, letters, emails etc.; and ask how long they estimate it may take to settle. The longer things drag out the more their charges will be and the greater percentage of your compensation will be taken in expenses.
Do I need a Solicitor?
There are many types of personal injury claims and not all claims are covered by the same legalisation, therefore your chances of making a successful claim is dramatically increased by using a specialist who knows all the “ins and outs” of the each of the different aspects of the law.
There are many companies that advertise they provide personal injury claims advice but not all are fully qualified or experienced. A good place to start is to look for a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. (APIL)
