If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should be entitled to make a claim for compensation. We just need to take a few details from you of the accident circumstances so that you can have free, legal advice on a compensation claim – with no obligation.
Your claim for compensation will be against the insurance policy of the person or company who are responsible for you accident.
We’ve helped many thousands of people successfully claim compensation for many different types of accident and injury claims since 1999.
A compensation claim can be made for pain and suffering, loss of income, damaged possessions and any other expenses incurred because of the accident. Your solicitor may be able to arrange for you to have an advance payment if required.
Our specialist solicitors may also be able to arrange for you to have private medical treatment to help you on the road to recovery, at no cost to you.
In the case of a traffic accident, we may be able to arrange for you to have a replacement vehicle whilst your vehicle is being repaired, this would normally be at no cost to you.
If you’ve had to pay an excess fee to your insurance company, we may even be able to recover this for you. Our personal injury lawyers work hard and have the expertise to ensure that you receive the full compensation you are entitled to – in the shortest time possible.

How much compensation could I receive?
Every personal injury claim is different and the amount of compensation awarded depends upon a number of factors.
In addition to compensation for personal injury, you may also be entitled to make a claim for loss of earnings and any other financial losses and expenses incurred due to the accident.

What does ‘No Win No Fee’ mean?
A no win no fee agreement, also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), is a no risk agreement that you make with your chosen solicitors without worrying about upfront legal fees. If your claim is unsuccessful, there is no charge to you under this agreement.
There are some rare exceptions to this, however if they apply to you, your chosen solicitor will let you know before your claim starts.
The Conditional Fee Agreement has been around since 1995 and replaced Legal Aid, when it was abolished for personal injury compensation claims.
No win No fee agreements are offered by solicitors based on the circumstances of your case and usually appropriate insurance cover being in place. Typically, customers pay a `success` fee up to 25% of the amount awarded in compensation. Your solicitor will confirm all of the details before your claim starts and if you are still unsure we’re here to help.
