Bath Personal Injury Solicitors No Win No Fee
By Stephen Hackett. Last Updated 13th September 2021. Are you looking for the best Bath personal injury solicitors? If so, look no further than Legal Expert. We can assist irrespective of whether you are located in Bath or somewhere else in the UK. With experts on the end of the phone who can help with your claim, you’re in good hands with Legal Expert.
Making a personal injury claim
There may be many Bath personal injury solicitors, but it is important that you are assigned with a legal professional that is right for you. We make sure that this is the case. We will listen to the ins and outs of your claim and assign you a solicitor accordingly.
However, for any solicitor to secure compensation for you, they will need to prove the following:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- The Defendant breached this duty of care
- You suffered an injury or illness because of this breach
It is also advisable to get in touch with No Win No Fee solicitors in Bath as soon as possible. This is because there is a three-year time limit usually applied to personal injury cases (under the Limitation Act 1980). This time limit starts from the date of your accident, unless this date cannot be pinpointed. If the latter applies, you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis. Nonetheless, by claiming as soon as you can, you can ensure you don’t run into any issues with regards to the time limit.
Selecting the best No Win No Fee lawyer to represent you is crucial
When it comes to making any type of compensation claim, the first step should always be the same, and this is to select a lawyer that matches your needs. In the UK, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) does regulate all solicitors. However, you should never assume that all solicitors operate to the same high levels. This is why choosing a legal professional carefully is imperative. You won’t get a second chance to make a personal injury claim.
Read reviews of injury lawyers in Bath
There are a number of different ways you can determine whether a solicitor is right for you. One option is to read reviews that have been left by previous clients. Such feedback can be very insightful. Not only this, but you will find out more about the fees that are charged by No Win No Fee solicitors in Bath. If you would like to get free advice from Legal Expert, please don’t delay in getting in touch.
Does the location of the solicitor matter?
For most personal injury cases, there is only one part of a case that needs to be taken care of on a local basis, and this is the medical. This means you are free to choose any solicitor you like; they don’t need to be based in Bath. Therefore, you can make your choice based on a number of different factors, for instance, the solicitor’s rating online.
What types of compensation can I claim?
If you start a personal injury claim, then there are two types of damages which you may be able to receive compensation for. These include the following:
- General Damages
Compensation for general damages is given for the physical and mental injuries caused by your accident. How much you may receive for general damages can vary a lot and depends on the circumstances of your case. There will need to be evidence which confirms your injuries and a link will need to be established between them and your accident. How severe your injuries are deemed to be also influences how much compensation you can receive for general damages.
Solicitors may use the Judicial College guidelines to help determine the value of your injuries. Feel free to contact our advisors for guidance on how much compensation you could earn based on the details of your claim.
- Special Damages
If you are successfully able to claim for general damages, then you could possibly be eligible to also claim for what’s known as special damages. Special damages refer to financial losses which can be connected to the accident your case is focused on. If you can prove that an accident that wasn’t your fault had an impact on your finances, then you may receive compensation for this in addition to any money for general damages.
