By Mark Ainsdale. Last Updated 24th September 2021. Welcome to our Borehamwood personal injury solicitors guide. Legal Expert is here to help you start your claim, whether you are located in Borehamwood or anywhere else within the UK. We can help put you with Borehamwood Personal injury solicitors that have experience in fighting cases just like yours and who will arrange a local medical if required for you to attend.
Making a personal injury claim
There are a significant number of regulations that have been put in place to assist anyone who is looking to pursue a compensation claim, and the personal injury solicitors in Borehamwood that Legal Expert work with have been helping clients for many years to find out if they have a case for claiming compensation.
In certain cases, some people find that they may be eligible to claim compensation for a condition even when it has developed due to an incident that occurred several years ago. This applies to certain injuries and illnesses like hand-arm vibration syndrome. The three-year time limit that applies to these cases does not begin until the day you are given your official diagnosis.
To secure a win in a Borehamwood personal injury claim, your representative must be able to establish:
- A duty of care was owed to you by the defendant
- The defendant contravened this duty of care
- Your injury or illness was caused as a result of the breach made by the defendant
The sooner you begin your claim, the more likely you will be able to collect vital supporting evidence. Please contact us to learn how to claim with the help of the Borehamwood personal injury solicitors.
A guide to choosing the best No Win No Fee personal injury lawyer for you is critical for your needs
It is likely that settlement for a compensation claim may take months to be finalised, and in cases where severe injuries are involved even years. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, but service levels may vary.
You must choose a lawyer carefully; finding one who has dealt with your type of case before is an important first step that you should give careful consideration to.
Reviews for injury lawyers in Borehamwood
One of the best ways to choose a solicitor is simply by ringing them directly to discuss your case. However, it might be worth checking on injury lawyer reviews to see what range of services they offer before you do.
Claimants are often surprised when they discover that there can be inconsistencies between the number of fees for successful claims and the insurance premiums that firms who work on a Conditional Fee Agreement charge.
For example, if an injured person is awarded compensation of around £93,956 for a severe leg injury, the financial compensation they keep may vary from £56.373 to £79,862.
If you would like more information regarding this, please get in touch with us. And our personal injury solicitors for Borehamwood can then help you to claim online.
Does the location of the solicitor matter?
Your location does not limit you to only choosing a local solicitor. If you prefer to make a choice based on other factors, this is not an issue.
A medical will likely be the only part of your personal injury claim that you will need to deal with locally. We can arrange for a local medical expert in the field to carry out the medical near to where you live. Some of those close to Borehamwood are,

Borehamwood Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs
What is a No Win No Fee agreement?
This is a policy that law firms such as Legal Expert utilise for personal injury claims.
Why is it so beneficial for claimants?
This is because the accident victim won’t lose out on unnecessary solicitor costs under this policy.
How does this work?
So, the claimant would only pay their solicitor’s legal fees if the case wins.
What would the claimant pay their solicitor?
They would pay a success fee that comes out of the compensation settlement figure.
How much is the success fee?
This varies because it depends on how much compensation they win, but the success fee does have a legal cap.
And what is the legal cap?
The legal cap stands at 25%, though the claimant and their solicitor can agree on a specific amount that is higher.
So, what happens if the case is unsuccessful?
In this scenario, the claimant doesn’t have to pay their solicitor’s legal fees whatsoever.
And when does the claimant have to pay their solicitor?
Because it’s a success fee, the payment comes at the very end of the successful case. And note that there aren’t any other surprise charges, either before or during the case.
