HOW MUCH CAN I CLAIM?
Compensation for different injuries vary depending upon a number of factors. These include – the severity of your injury, how long you take to recover, how it affects your life. You can also claim for expenses you incur such as loss of earnings, travelling, medication, care and help. Our experts lawyers will discuss all these matters with you to make sure you get the maximum amount of compensation that you deserve.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST ME?
Under our no win no fee scheme you have the peace of mind of knowing that you have no legal fees to pay at the start of your case or as your claim progresses. Nor will you have to pay if your claim does not succeed. There is a charge when your claim is successful, but for your peace of mind we cap that at a maximum of 25% of your compensation.
HOW LONG WILL MY CLAIM TAKE?
No two claims are the same, and there are lots of things that affect how long a case can take, for example a case where court proceedings are necessary will usually take longer than a case where they are not. We understand that you will want to conclude your case promptly, and you can be sure that our specialist lawyers will work hard for you to make that happen.
WILL IT EFFECT MY JOB?
We understand that claiming against your employer can be sometimes be difficult. You may be worried about your employer’s attitude towards you, whether it will affect your job, you may be worried about the financial impact upon your employer. These thoughts are common but are rarely problems when claims are brought. All employers must have, by law, adequate insurance cover for claims against them. It is the insurance company who are responsible for dealing with your claim and paying your compensation.
