Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions 

 

What do I need to start my claim?

To start the claim process a member of our helpful team will need to take a few details from you so we can start building your case.  They will need details of the accident including how, when, where, and why the accident occurred, details of any injuries sustained, and your insurance details as well as few basic contact details for future correspondence. If you are also able to provide us with the third party details and the information of any witnesses it will help your case progress quicker. If you were involved in a car accident and there were other passengers in the vehicle at the time, we would also need their details as well.

 

How long do I have after my accident to make a claim?

You have 3 years from the date of your accident to make your claim. However, in the case of a child personal injury claim or if your accident occurred abroad this will be different.

 

What type of personal injury cases do you deal with?

The majority of the cases we deal with are road traffic accidents but we also have the experience and expertise to help you claim compensation if you’ve had an accident at work , a trip or slip in public, or suffered as a result of medical or professional negligence.

 

How long will it take to process my claim?

The length of time taken to process each claim will vary depending on the complexity of the case but, on average, claims are usually resolved between 3 to 9 months.

 

How much compensation will I get?

The amount of compensation will vary on the severity of the accident and your injuries. It will take into consideration the exact nature of your injury, your symptoms, and the length of time it takes you to recover.

As well as covering you for the pain you suffered, the compensation also covers vehicle damage if you were involved in a road traffic accident, how you may be affected in the future, loss of earnings and other financial losses, and other additional damages.

 

What are the up front costs?

There are no up front costs and we undertake the majority of cases on a No Win No Fee basis.

 

Will I have to attend a medical appointment?
