Frequently asked questions and answers
Yes, you certainly do have a right to pursue a Personal Injury claim, if you’ve been injured due to someone else’s fault in the last three years. Please complete the online survey, or text to +447525346449 or call us now on +443334446449 to find out whether you can claim.
We deal with all types of Personal Injury claims, no matter how large or small they are but because people spend one-third of their adult lives at work the majority of our clients are those individuals who sustained an injury due to an accident at work (or on the way to/from work).
No one is fully protected against the misfortune that may happen with anyone, anytime, anywhere. The list of the scenes the accident may occur includes but is not limited to construction sites, factories, farms, workshops or offices; warehouses, supermarkets, shopping malls, luxury boutiques or next-door convenience stores; post offices, leisure centres, fitness clubs, or local playgrounds; coffeeshops, pubs, bars, restaurants or hotels, GP practices, dental practices, hospitals or other medical institutions; beautician salons or local hairdressers; pavements, cyclists paths, quiet residential roads or busy motorways; public transport such as buses, taxis, trains, aeroplanes, excursion amphibious boats or even cruise ships.
You can claim for :
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of your wages.
- Future loss of earnings.
- Medical expenses incurred.
- Damaged clothing or other items.
- Travel costs, including money spent for taxi.
- Assistance received from the family or friends.
- Additional equipment you had to buy due to your injuries.
- Vehicle damage or total loss (in case of a Road Traffic Accident).
- Hire of the replacement vehicle (in case of a Road Traffic Accident).
That will depend on your injuries. Compensation claims are in two parts: injury and financial loss such as loss of earnings, medical expenses etc. Awards vary from a thousand pounds or less, in smaller cases, to million-pound awards in substantial serious injury cases. The specialist solicitor that we appoint to act for you will be able to advise you about the level of your compensation.
Although you have three years after the date of an accident to file a Personal Injury claim for compensation it is highly recommended to contact an independent solicitor as soon as possible.
Much depends upon the exact circumstances of the case. If it is a straightforward case it will take three to twelve months to settle whereas more complicated cases or cases, where there are disputes, can take longer. The specialist solicitor that we appoint to act for you will always be able to advise you on the progress of your claim as well as on the level of your compensation.
Less than 2% of cases end up in Court because most cases are settled by negotiation between the parties. This means that you are most likely to receive your damages without having to go to Court as our solicitors will negotiate these with the Insurance company on your behalf.
If your claim is unsuccessful, you will not be charged anything provided you have not misled or have failed to co-operate with your solicitor. If you win, then solicitors will deduct “Success fee” up to 25%. Should you require further information ClaimOk will put you in touch with a solicitor who will act on your behalf under this agreement and explain in plain language Terms and Conditions.
