Reading Reviews Of Kingston Upon Hull Car Crash Solicitors
By reading reviews written by previous clients of a solicitor, you might be able to find out more information about the services that they can provide to you. You can also see if previous claimants were satisfied with the level of service they received, and the settlement secured for them.
However, whilst reading reviews can be helpful, there is no substitute to talking to our team over the phone and discussing what you need from Hull accident lawyers, or in the case of Legal Expert, lawyers who can cover this area.

What Types Of Injuries Are Commonly Suffered In Road Traffic Accidents?
As we have seen, there are many different types and causes of accidents on the road. However, when it comes to injuries, there are several types or classifications of injury which our personal injury lawyers see again and again in claimants. In the sections below we will briefly look at some of the most common place injuries we see in relations to RTA’s and which could happen as a result of a car accident in Kingston Upon Hull.
Whiplash is the injury most frequently associated with car and road traffic accidents. Whiplash itself is considered a less severe form of neck injury, though much more serious than general sprains or strains. More serious injuries to the neck might also include damage to the cervical spine or discs.
In a vehicle accident, some of the most common types of injuries are those affecting the back and causing back pain. Back pain can be caused by anything from a strain or sprain, through to a hernia or even fractures. Back pain can be debilitating and the associated injuries can caused severely limited mobility. Back pain and the injuries which cause it might not show up straight after an accident. This is why it is important to get an assessment by a member of our panel of medical experts.
Other types of serious injuries
Serious injuries which can be caused by a road traffic accident in Hull, or anywhere, can cause physical or psychological damage. Even if you were injured in a non-fault crash, the consequences could be devastating. Serious injuries could include damage to the cervical spine (such as dislocations), as well as damage to the discs. Such serious injuries might not present straight away and could become apparent sometime after the accident. More serious injuries can lead to long-term pain and suffering in claimants and could even lead to psychological conditions such as anxiety around travel.

Car Accident Claims With No Win No Fee Car Solicitors In Kingston Upon Hull
You may be concerned about the costs of hiring a solicitor. However, you could potentially hire a solicitor on a No Win No Fee basis.
No Win No Fee solicitors work on the stipulation that if you don’t receive a settlement figure, they won’t be paid a success fee. Additionally, the fee you do pay to your solicitor if your claim succeeds is capped at 25% under The Conditional Fee Agreements Order 2013. You won’t pay anything to your solicitor if they are unable to secure you compensation.
Other benefits include no upfront solicitor fees whilst any legal expenses that accrue during the claims process are usually covered under the agreement.
Do Claimants have to pay any fees?
Some claims management services, legal firms, solicitors or lawyers will often find ways of adding extra charges or fees into the no win, no fee agreement; meaning that if they are not able to win your case, they will still charge you some amount. At Legal Expert we think that this goes against the idea of a no win, no fee agreement.
If you choose a personal injury lawyer provided by us, we guarantee that they will operate with a 100% guaranteed no win, no fee contract. There will be no hidden extras or catches meaning you can rest assured, you will only pay if and when your claim is settled.
