What Is A Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is a legal process, usually conducted by specialist personal injury lawyers. The claim comes about when the actions of another harm one party. The harm caused loss (physical or non-physical), and the victim (claimant) pursues the perpetrator (defendant) for monetary compensation for these losses. The kind of harm could be:
- Physical injuries such as those caused by an accident.
- Illnesses or diseases caused by being exposed to a health hazard.
- Psychological damage due to a traumatic experience.
- Damage to or loss of property.
Legal Expert can help you claim compensation for the harm you have been caused, even partially by a third party. Please speak to our personal injury solicitors for West Bridgford on the number at the end of this guide to learn how to claim.
How Can A Personal Injury Solicitor Help Me?
It is your right to handle your legal matters in the UK, and you could make your claim yourself. However, it makes much more sense to use a specialised solicitor to process your personal injury claim for reasons such as:
- A solicitor will be able to advise you on the types of damages you might be able to claim.
- A solicitor will be able to help you decide on an acceptable level of compensation.
- A solicitor will be experienced in negotiating with the defendant’s legal team, and therefore have a higher chance of winning an out of court settlement.
- A solicitor will know how to proceed if the claim goes to court.
Legal Expert can provide all of these benefits and more. Please speak to one of our team on the number at the end of the page to learn how to help with your claim.
What Rights Do You Have To Make A Personal Injury Claim?
As we mentioned previously, if the actions of a third party harm you, even if they were only partially to blame, then a personal injury law firm could process a claim for you. The third party you claim against would be any distinct legal entity in its own right, for example:
- Your local council.
- Your housing authority or landlord.
- A local supermarket.
- The corner shop.
- A friend or family member.
- The National Health Service.
- A local KFC.
As you can see, every company, organisation and private individual can be classed as a separate legal entity so that you can claim against them. And this is something that the West Bridgford personal injury solicitors can help you with. If you are unsure who is liable for compensation in your case, speak to one of the Legal Expert team on the number at the end of the page to find out.
Helpful Checklist For Comparing Solicitors And Lawyers
Finding a good solicitor covering West Bridgford to process your claim need not take much effort. Use the checklist below to vet any legal firm you are speaking to:

- Are they able to take your claim on under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)?

Legal Expert can answer yes to all of these questions. If you would like to learn more about our national claims service, call us on the number at the bottom of this page.
Look At Online Reviews Of Solicitors
If you want to cut down on the work involved in finding a good solicitor, even more, you could try to search for some No Win No Fee reviews online. These can be used to build a shortlist of potential legal firms to handle your claim. You can still use the checklist above to vet each review, and you will also need to take into account the following facts:
- Is the review too old to still be relevant?
- Was the review positive?
- Did the reviewer list the good points and bad points of the legal firm?
- How much did the solicitor charge as their fee?
Legal Expert can help you cut down on the work of finding good legal representation.

The Location Of Your Solicitor Is Not Important
Many people wrongly believe that there is some legal requirement that means they must use a local team of solicitors in West Bridgford to process compensation claims. This is not so. You can use any legal firm you like, and the location they are based doesn’t matter; you can still use a national law firm.
Now you know this, you need to decide whether the ease of dealing with a local firm outweighs the benefits of using a specialist accident and injury claims service. On the one hand, a local firm is easy to deal with, and on the other hand, the specialist firm could have a much higher chance of winning your claim for you.

West Bridgford Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs
What is the likelihood of my case going to a trial in court?
Pretty low, as only around 5% of cases end up in front of a judge.
Why is this?
In cases where the evidence against them is overwhelming, most defendants will seek to settle matters out of court ASAP.
What is the benefit of the claim going to a trial?
You have the opportunity to achieve the maximum compensation target if you go all the way to court.
But what is the downside of being in a trial?
This will increase your legal costs, and there’s still no guarantee that your case will win.
When do I receive my settlement figure?
The defendant must pay the settlement no more than 28 days after the agreement or after the judge’s ruling.
What are the chances of winning a medical negligence case?
If you have strong evidence in your favour, the odds of winning such a case are around 50-50.
Does it matter how serious my injuries are?
No, because as long as you can prove that the accident causes your pain and suffering, you could still claim.
And what must I conclusively prove to win my case?
