Do I have to pay to make a claim?
In the past, seeking recourse to a court of law and expert legal advice in the event of a misfortune was something that was the preserve of the very wealthy. The costs incurred when employing legal advice and taking legal action were such that, for most ordinary people, it was simply out of the question. At Claims4Free, however, we don't think that should be the case. We feel that everyone ought to be equal before the law and that, if you've been injured following an accident which wasn't your fault, you have every right to seek compensation on a no win no fee basis.

If you've been unlucky enough to be involved in an accident which was your own fault then, as nobody in particular is to blame, the most you can do is move on and hope to learn from your mishap. If the accident took place as a result of another party's negligence, however, then the stress, trauma and injury can be accompanied by feelings of anger and unfairness. You've suffered through no fault of your own, and the very least you can expect is some compensation to restore your sense of justice and help you get your life back on track.
Factors which can affect you when putting together a compensation claim include:
- Stress and anxiety
- Reduced employment prospects
- Physical injury
- Medical bills
While you're attempting to recover from the stress and trauma of an accident, the last thing you need is to be worrying about any of these things, and it should therefore be up to the responsible party to compensate you to a degree that takes the stress and worry out of your hands. At Claims4Free we deal with any and every type of accident, with most slotting into one of the following categories:
- Accidents at work
- Road traffic accidents
- Medical negligence
- Criminal injury
- Slips, trips and falls
Will I receive 100% of my compensation?
With our no win no fee solicitors, you will receive 100% of the compensation you are owed as legal costs are claimed from the other side. If your claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay any fees to your lawyer.
How long does it take to claim compensation?
The length of time it takes to claim compensation varies greatly. For example, in a road traffic accident where the other side accepts liability and the compensation amount is agreed quickly without going to court, your claim could be settled within months.
However, for some medical negligence claims, it can take years for compensation to be paid as these cases can be complex and require various medical experts to provide their opinion.
How do I find out if I am entitled to claim?
In order for a claim to be successful we will seek to demonstrate that the accident in question caused actual trauma and suffering in either the short or long term, and that it was clearly the fault of someone else. If you feel this may be the case where you're concerned, then call us on 0808 115 0700 and explain your circumstances to one of our trained advisors. If they honestly feel that you have a firm basis for a claim, they'll pass you on to one of our expert personal injury lawyers. Working on a No Win No Fee basis they will build a case on your behalf. This means that you don't have to pay anything up front, and that all the expert help and advice is given totally free of charge. Should you win your case, any costs will be covered by the other side, meaning that you don't pay a penny and get to keep 100% of the compensation.
