How To Claim A No Win No Fee Personal Injury

Aug 5, 2008
So you have had an accident and suffered an injury, sure accidents happen but what if it was not your own fault what if someone else was at fault for your personal injury. Maybe you had an accident at work or whilst out shopping because of the negligence of someone else.

If you have sustained an injury where liability lies with another party, that is the accident can be shown to be the fault of someone else then you can claim against that party. The injuries you sustained may mean you have had to endure expensive medial treatment and were unable to work.

Your first action should be to contact a personal injury solicitor or lawyer that deals with personal injury claims on a no win, no fee basis. A qualified solicitor that specialises in this field will be able to advise you as to what action can be taken.

You will be asked questions about the accident so you will need to provide honest and accurately factual answers. Your lawyer will need to determine whether or not the case can be taken on a now win no fee basis. The circumstances and extent of your injuries and the subsequent affect it has had on you such as a reduction in your quality of life or loss of earnings due to the accident.

If you have a valid case then you will be informed of this and the claims process can be started. A letter called a letter of claim will be sent to the defendant, this is the person or organisation believed to be at fault. The letter will inform them that it is you intent to claim compensation for the injury or injuries sustained due to the accident.

A medical expert will probably be involved at this stage to assess your injuries and produce a medical report. This could involve an examination or any records created whilst medical assistance was sought at the time of the injury. Remember you may be claiming a while after the accident actually occurred.

The next step is to prepare a schedule of losses which is a list of the financial claims you will be making. A financial claim may be a claim due to loss of earnings, say for example you are a model and you have sustained a visible scar due your injuries. It may be a lot harder or even impossible to find work so you may be claiming for future loss of earnings.

A letter of claims will be sent to the defendants legal representation who will then decide if they will accept or refute the claims. In the case where the defendant disputes your claims then the case will have to be determined in a court of law. As you will be using the no win, no fee system you will not incur any cost if your case fails.
