Am I a personal injury victim?
You are a personal injury victim if you have suffered as a result of negligence or intentional harm. Typical injuries include, but are not limited to: hand injuries, whiplash injuries, nose fractures, sight injuries, knee injuries, elbow injuries, ankle injuries, forearm injuries, and back injuries.
Why do I need evidence?
Evidence that the injury was the fault of the other party is important for the case and also for the solicitor. No win no fee solicitors do not earn money unless they win the case, so they only take on cases they think they can win based on evidence.
Why should I choose no win no fee?
No win no fee claims are great because they are risk-free. You literally have nothing to lose with a no win no fee compensation claim. In addition, the solicitors for these types of claims are dedicated to the success of your case.
What does 100% compensation mean?
100% compensation is a contract clause that entitles you to 100% of the compensation. If this clause is not in your contract, your solicitor can take up to 25% of your compensation. Be sure to ask your solicitor what percentage of your compensation they will take if your case is successful.
How much am I entitled to?
The no win no fee typical amount you're entitled to varies greatly from case to case. While there are general guidelines, the details of each claim mean there will be variations in compensation. For example, the extent of your injuries and the length of your suffering play a major role in the decision. Use our compensation calculator for more information on guideline compensation payouts.
What happens if I win?
If you win your no win no fee case, you will receive compensation for your injuries. In addition, the opposing party will pay all, or part of, your solicitor fees. You can rest easy knowing that justice has been served!
What happens if I lose?
If you lose your no win no fee case, you will not receive compensation for your injuries. Fortunately, you also will not have to pay solicitor fees. You are no worse off for trying!
