Making a No Win No Fee Compensation Claim
Why claim no win no fee compensation?
If you have sustained an injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, claiming no win no fee compensation is an important step to take. Here are three of the reasons you might choose to make a no win no fee claim for compensation:
1. Recover your financial losses
Compensation can cover any financial losses you may have suffered as a result of your injury. This could include any earnings you’ve lost due to time off work, and/or any costs you’ve had to pay for treatment such as medication, surgery or physiotherapy.
2. Gain an apology
Making a no win no fee compensation claim can also help get you the apology you deserve. If you’ve experienced medical negligence, it can help you understand what caused your injury.
3. Prevent the same thing happening to someone else
Claiming compensation can help to prevent the same thing happening to another person. It can highlight a hazard or bad practice that previously went unnoticed.
You might have concerns about claiming no win no fee compensation from somebody you know, such as an employer or another driver. Remember, compensation is usually paid out by the other party’s insurance. You shouldn’t put off making a claim for their sake, as they won’t be left out of pocket.
Will my claim be successful?
Because our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis, they usually only take on your case if there is a very strong possibility that it will be successful.
The main criterion for making a successful compensation claim is that the accident you had was due to someone else’s negligence. This could be obvious, such as a driver being at fault in a car accident. Or less so, such as an injury from a pothole on the pavement, caused by a local council’s negligence.
If you’re unsure whether your claim will be successful, the easiest way to find out is to give us a call on 0800 540 4258 and speak to one of our legally trained advisors. They can tell you in minutes if they think you have a valid claim.
