Average Compensation Payments For No Win No Fee Personal Injury Claims
The amount of compensation received for different types of injuries varies hugely and is completely dependent on your specific injuries. This makes it incredibly difficult to answer the question of how much compensation you are likely to receive. This is why we recommend that you call us and discuss your case as soon as possible. There are some general principles behind the amount of compensation you receive, however.
Compensation claim amounts for all personal injuries (including yours) are divided into two main parts. The first part of the claim is based on the amount of pain and suffering you have experienced. Because this is such a subjective assessment, there are guidelines put forward by the national governing body (the Judicial College). These give a range of amounts that are usually paid out following each specific injury. The ranges can be very wide, however. This is because they are designed to ensure that the exact nature of your injury can be taken into account. Unfortunately, this can make it very difficult for anyone without experience to know where in that range their injury is likely to fall. Our highly trained personal injury claims solicitors have years of experience in making no win no fee personal injury claims and are able to give you an accurate assessment of where in the range your injury is likely to fall.
The second part of your compensation claim is there to compensate you for any expenses or costs you have suffered associated with your accident. The aim here is that you should never be left financially or materially worse off following your accident than you would have been had the accident not happened. This can be a much larger payment than the first part of your compensation, as it can include the loss of earnings you may experience if you need to take off work to recover. It can also include modifications to your home or vehicle, if very serious injuries mean that you need these to resume your normal life. You are also able to request the money you need to access rehabilitation and any medical assistance that is not easily available on the NHS, such as physiotherapy if there are long waiting lists in your area.
Working with our dedicated team allows you to be sure that you are claiming for the full range of expenses that you have incurred following your injuries. Our team work hard to get you the best possible compensation payment to give you the financial support you need to get your life back on track as quickly as possible.
How Long Do No Win No Fee Personal Injury Compensation Claims Take?
Each no win no fee personal injury compensation claim is unique, and it is not possible to give an exact answer as to how long each one will take. We realise that it is important to you that your claim is finished as quickly as possible, to ensure that you can put your accident behind you with the financial support you need.
At the very fastest, cases can be resolved in just a few months, and some can even take just a matter of weeks. For a case to be settled this quickly, the other side will have accepted liability very quickly, without the need for lengthy investigations and evidence-gathering. They will usually be claims for smaller amounts of money, and so associated with less severe injuries. With less money at stake, the other side is less likely to consider it worth their while to string out the negotiations to encourage you to accept a lower offer.
If you are unlucky enough to have a very complicated case, for example if multiple people were to blame for what happened, or if your accident resulted in very serious injuries and there are complex negotiations as to the amount of compensation that is appropriate, your case can take significantly longer to be resolved. Cases that have to go to court are the longest compensation cases.
Can I Get Help With My No Win No Fee Personal Injury Claim?
One of the most daunting aspects of making a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim is the risk of high legal fees, especially if there is no guarantee that your claim will be successful.

A no win no fee agreement means that we are able to act as your solicitors without you having to pay any fees until you receive compensation.

Is There A Deadline For Me Making A No Win No Fee Personal Injury Compensation Claim?
The deadline for making a no win no fee personal injury claim following an accident is two years from the date of the accident. Although this can be extended in very exceptional circumstances, almost all cases are resolved within this time limit and exceptions are very rare. If you are approaching this date, it is essential that you contact our personal injury solicitors without delay.
There can sometimes be an advantage in waiting a little while before making a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim. Some injuries may take a while to fully appear or they may take far longer than expected to heal. It is always worth having conversations with our personal injury specialists as early as possible, however, as this gives you the best chance of forming a strong case and getting the compensation you deserve.
How The No Win No Fee Personal Injury Compensation Claim Process Works
Making a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim follows a simple procedure.
One of the first things to do if you are considering making a no win no fee compensation claim is to call us or claim online. We will provide you with the support and advice that you need to make sure that your claim progresses smoothly and that you have the highest chance of getting the positive outcome that you deserve.
Working on your behalf, we write to the person responsible for your accident (this person is often known as the respondent). In this letter, we explain that you are claiming compensation for your injuries and that you believe that they were at fault. We ask them to accept responsibility (the legal term for this is accepting liability) for what happened and give them a deadline by which to inform us if they disagree.
If the other party refuses to accept that they were to blame in your accident, we will find and send evidence to support your claim. This might include photographs of the location in which your accident took place, a copy of the company’s accident book, witness statements and anything else that might be relevant. For workplace accidents in particular, it is very unusual for liability to be disputed for long.
As soon as the other party has agreed liability, we can begin negotiations to decide how much compensation is fair. This will always be completely your decision, but we will offer you advice and support to ensure that you can be confident in your decisions. The other party will often offer a very low initial amount, known as a low-ball offer, to see whether you will accept less than you are entitled to. With our experience, we are able to give you the information you need to identify these kinds of tactics and get the full amount of compensation you deserve for your accident.
In the unusual situation that it is not possible to reach agreement, either because the other party refuses to accept that they are liable, or because it is not possible to find a compensation amount that both parties will accept, it may be necessary to go to court to resolve your personal injury compensation claim. This is very rare, and we will support you throughout the process if it does turn out to be necessary.

Can I Claim Compensation For The Personal Injury I Suffered?
In the aftermath of a personal injury, most of our clients are looking for reassurance. Many of them are not sure whether they fulfill the criteria for making a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim. In most cases they are able to claim, as the requirements are very straightforward.
The most basic requirement for making a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim is that you must have suffered a personal injury and had some form of damage or loss as a result. Your injury could be either physical or mental, but you cannot make a compensation claim if you have not experienced any negative consequences from your accident. Although experiencing a near miss can be alarming, you are only able to claim for accidents that actually happened, not those which you narrowly avoided.
It is also vital that there is someone who is at fault in your accident. In order to make a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim, you must claim against someone, and this person or organisation must have had some form of responsibility towards you. If your accident or injury took place at work, your employer will almost certainly be in this position, as they have a statutory duty of care, meaning that they have a legal requirement to think about your health and safety and to take all appropriate measures to keep you safe.
The person who was to blame for your accident must have been able to predict or foresee this event occurring. This is not saying that they must have known that it would happen, but it must have been sufficiently plausible that a reasonable person in that role should have been able to anticipate something along those lines taking place.
The final requirement is that they must have failed to take enough measures to keep you safe. Even if they have taken some measures, you are still able to claim if these were clearly inadequate.
If you have been injured as the result of an accident and there was someone else who could have helped to avoid or minimise your injuries, you are able to make a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim. If you are in this position, call us or claim online today.
What Steps Should I Take Following My Personal Injury?
The most important thing after any accident is to make sure that you are safe from any further harm and that you have access to the medical assistance you need. Only once you have made sure that this is sorted should you consider taking a few simple steps to help support your claim, if you feel that you are able to do so.
It is vital that you have a clear and consistent memory of what happened before, during and after your accident. This means that we need to have as many details as possible. Because you never know what the person who was responsible for your accident is likely to say in their defence, you will want to have all the details to hand, even ones that may seem irrelevant. In order to help you with this. We advise that you write down everything you can remember, as soon as possible after your accident. This should include all details that you think are relevant, especially focusing on anything that made your accident more likely.
It can also be helpful to make sure that you have the names and contact details of any witnesses to your accident. You are welcome to ask them to write down everything they remember, but we are also able to do this for you, as long as we know who they are and are able to contact them. Witnesses can provide strong support when you are demonstrating the causes of your accident.
Taking photographs and videos of the place where your accident occurred, and making sure that you have a visual record of any relevant details can also be incredibly helpful. You should only do this if it is safe to do so, and we are happy to assist with this if preferred.
All of these pieces of supporting evidence can help your case, but we know that there are many situations in which you may not be in a position to provide any of these. Our no win no fee personal injury compensation claims specialists are here to help, and this includes gathering the evidence needed to support your claim.
