Personal injury information

First things first - lets clarify what you should be looking for at this stage.

The priorities should be:

First and foremost you want to incur no expenses in pursuing your accident claim.   Secondly you want simple, straightforward legal advice.  

You want an immediate view on your case prospects. Are you likely to win 100%, 50% or nothing at all?  

You want to know what timescales are involved (ie: how long to settle?)  

Finally you may want to how much your compensation award is likely to be.  

These are honest questions and fortunately we can provide some honest answers.

Some useful facts:

  • You have 3 years to make a claim for personal injury. This date runs from the accident and in real terms means that you have to sue the other party before the three years expires. There are some exceptions to this rule.
  • In England & Wales - because of the no win no fee rules which are now law - you should be able to pursue any genuine claim at no cost.
  • Our helpline advisors are all experienced people who will tell you the moment you call whether you have a claim. We will also indicate your likely chances of success.
  • Most soft tissue personal injury claims settle within 6-9 months. The more serious the injury the longer a claim is likely to take.   As for how much compensation you will receive - well at this early stage there is no answer to that question. But as a general rule your case may fall into the brackets discussed on this page.
