Are you the victim of a car accident and wondering if you should get in touch with a car accident solicitor? Maybe your case is complicated, or perhaps you are unsure about how much compensation you might be entitled to. You may have heard that only serious injuries lead to claims for damages being made, but this isn't always true.
When you decide to hire a car accident solicitor, your first contact will likely be with an initial contact department. They will take down all the information about your case, ask you for details and discuss whether or not they can help you. If they cannot take on the case, they should explain why and give you advice on who might be able to help.
If a claim is accepted by the insurer of the driver responsible for your accident and/or their insurers, it then becomes your car accident solicitor's responsibility to manage this settlement through negotiations with their representative and other associated parties (such as medical experts). Your car accident solicitor will also need to ensure that any court action taken against another party is properly prepared so that there are no unnecessary delays in moving forward with legal proceedings.
If you have suffered a serious car accident and have not been able to return to work, or if you are in pain and discomfort, then it is important that you contact a solicitor as soon as possible.
The legal definition of ‘serious injury’ is one that requires immediate medical attention, which can mean anything from a broken bone or cuts and bruises to something more serious such as head injuries.
The exact amount of compensation that you could expect will depend on the severity of your injuries; however, many people who have suffered from a minor impact can still be entitled to some form of compensation for their pain and suffering (in other words: how much it hurts). You may also be able to claim for lost earnings if your injuries prevent you from working or attending school full time.
*Accredited car accident solicitors are held to a higher standard and must adhere to strict codes of conduct.
*Accredited car accident solicitors are more likely to win your case.
*Accredited solicitors are more likely to get you the best possible settlement in your claim
* No Win, No Fee
This is the most common basis for legal fees in car accident cases, and the most advantageous to you as a client. It means that you don’t have to pay any lawyers' fees if your case is unsuccessful (for example, if the other side makes a successful counterclaim), but you do need to pay out of pocket expenses such as medical records and witness expenses. In some cases, these can be quite significant; however they are often capped at an amount set by law in order to prevent clients being bankrupted by them (the exact cap varies depending on whether it's England & Wales or Scotland). If your solicitor has acted ethically and professionally throughout this process they should be willing to reduce their costs where possible so that they do not take more than necessary from your claim fund - although this may mean asking them questions about how much of their time was spent on certain tasks before making your decision about which solicitors offer best value for money.
*Conditional Fee Basis (CFA)
This is similar in many ways: if there's no win then no fee applies here too; however unlike NFWF solicitors who work on contingency basis only charge expenses incurred during litigation - usually medical reports etc.; CFAs allow them also include costs related directly towards starting proceedings . For example : filing fees at court would normally be included under contingency fee arrangement but not with CFA; likewise criminal actions will be private prosecutions rather than publicly funded ones
The time limit for making a claim for compensation is 3 years from the date of the accident. This period can be extended if you have been injured and have not been able to make a claim because you were too ill or disabled. If your injuries were caused by someone else's negligence, you should see a doctor as soon as possible after the accident. You should also take photographs of any injuries at this stage so that they will be available later if needed to support your claim for damages.
If necessary, we can provide medical reports about your injuries and their impact on your life since it may help our solicitors calculate how much compensation should be awarded to make up for loss of earnings and other financial losses (including loss of future earnings) as well as non-financial losses such as pain and suffering.
If you need the assistance of a car accident solicitor, it is important to work with one who will act on a no win no fee basis. This means that if they are unable to get compensation for your injuries and damages, then there will be very little charge for their services.
