Here at Claims4Free we don't accept that an accident is something from which you should just walk away, grateful to still be alive. If you've suffered an injury in an accident that was caused by another party's negligence, you're paying a price for another's failings, which is frankly unfair. The only way to combat this unfairness is to make the responsible party pay, thus restoring the balance of justice.

Can anyone make a personal injury claim?
Over the years, the act of seeking compensation has gained something of a bad reputation, due mainly to disreputable companies who either pursue unjustified claims or promise unachievable and unjustified results. That, however, is not the way we work. We don't think of compensation as being a quick and easy way of cashing in. The only claims which we handle are those wherein an innocent party has genuinely suffered due to someone else's negligence. In cases such as this, we feel that, having already suffered physical pain, trauma, psychological distress and huge inconvenience, seeking a fair and proportionate payment is the very least you can do.
In simple terms, a 'personal injury', for which you will be entitled to pursue a claim, is one which takes place when you fall victim to physical or psychological trauma following an act of negligence or an accident for which you were in no way to blame. If it's a simple accident then fair enough, these things happen. However, if a third party is at fault you shouldn't be left to suffer and attempt to cope on your own. You may be in a position to pursue No Win No Fee compensation if you are suffering from the effects of an injury, condition or disease which was someone else's fault.
The potential range of accidents that might lead to a claim is huge, but among the most common are the following:
- Slips, trips or falls
- Car accidents
- Injury caused by defective products
- Medical and dental negligence
- Criminal injury
- Accidents at work
Just as the specific circumstances of an accident can vary vastly, so can the actual effects of the personal injury sustained. For some, it may merely be a short term inconvenience while other people, following a more serious accident, may suffer effects which carry on impinging for the rest of their lives.
A long term injury such as this may have a major negative effect on factors such as your earning potential, in some cases even leading to a situation wherein you are physically or psychologically unable to carry on working. On top of this, future expenses may include contributions towards medical treatment or medication. Even relatively 'small' injuries, however, can result in a period away from work and we feel that, in circumstances such as these, when the quality of your life has been severely and detrimentally affected, then any compensation you are able to claim will be the first step towards getting your life back on track again.
Can I claim for free?
Our expert injury lawyers work on a no win no fee basis, which means you don't have to pay any legal fees upfront to make a claim for compensation. If your claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay anything to your lawyer.
Will I have to go to court?
We're seasoned professionals determined to do our very best on your behalf. While the vast majority of compensation claims never actually make it as far as court (as most people realise it's quicker and cheaper to settle the claim beforehand), if you do have to go you'll have us at your side every step of the way, making sure that the process is as stress-free as possible and that you get every single penny of the compensation you are entitled to.
I'm not sure if I'm entitled to claim, how do I find out?
Anyone who has been the victim of an accident that comes under the heading of the previously detailed criteria may well be in a position to make a claim. If you feel this may apply to you then give us a call on 0808 115 0700 with as many details of your accident as you can recall. Our trained advisor will listen to your circumstances and give an honest appraisal as to whether we feel there is a case to be argued. If there is, our expert lawyers will build the strongest possible case on your behalf and in the vast majority of cases you won't have to pay a single penny up front, nor will any fee be taken from your final compensation. Any costs payable will be taken from the other party and, in the event that you should lose your claim, you won't end up owing anything.
