How much does an Accident Claim cost?
This is, of course, one of the very first questions accident victims ask. As an accident victim, financial stability is at the forefront of your thoughts. Will seeking compensation be more trouble than it's worth? Are you risking your savings by fighting for lost wages or compensation for pain and suffering? These are all important questions that you need answers to before making an accident claim.

So, how much does an accident claim cost? It shouldn't cost you a penny. The wonderful thing about UK personal injury law is that it put a focus on the victims' rights and interests. If you want to seek justice for an accident that resulted from someone else's negligence or intentional harm, it won't cost you a thing.
So, it's free?
For you personally, making an accident claim using a no win no fee solicitor is absolutely free. You will not have to pay solicitor fees, court fees or any other legal fees. Obviously, these fees are being paid, but not directly from your pocket. What's great about the no win no fee system is that it does not put you in further financial jeopardy, or deter you from seeking justice and compensation.
How is that possible?
The accident claim cost is so reasonable because of the no win no fee system. If you have proof that you endured a form of suffering as the result of someone's negligence, you can find a solicitor to help you free of charge. If you lose your case, there is no fee and you are no worse off than you were before. If you win your case, the losing party is typically responsible for your fees and you receive compensation!
Great! What's the next step?
If you're ready to make an accident claim, the next step is to gather evidence. Visit a doctor who can attest to your suffering, whether it's physical, emotional or mental. Have him or her record the findings in writing. Then, seek the advice of a no win no fee solicitor!
Your solicitor will help you build a case against the negligent party. You will work together to prove that your accident was not the fault of your own, which qualifies you for compensation. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on a number of variables, but you will be well on your way to peace of mind.
