Once you have finished reading this guide, you may have additional questions. If you do, you can speak to one of the Legal Expert team on 0800 073 8804. They will go over your claim with you, answer any questions you may have, and help you to get your claim underway.
What Is A Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is a legal process, whereby the victim of harm (claimant), caused by a third party, will attempt to claim monetary compensation for all applicable types of damages, from the third party (defendant), that was the cause of the harm. The harm caused must have been at least partially the fault of the third party for a reason to claim to exist. The types of harm that could become the basis of an injury or accident claim, are:
- Diseases and illnesses caused by being exposed to a health hazard.
- Physical injuries caused by an accident.
- Psychological damage caused by a traumatic event.
- Damage to, or loss of private property.
If you are unsure whether you have a reason to make a claim, please speak to one of the Legal Expert team on the number at the end of this guide. They will let you know whether you have a valid claim or not.
How Does The Personal Injury Claim Process Work?
When you first decide that you have a reason to make a claim, you will contact a personal injury solicitor. They will then inform you of what you may be eligible to claim for, and who may be liable to pay compensation. Next, your solicitor will inform the defendant of your decision to make a claim, and the defendant will then engage their own legal firm. The two legal firms will attempt to negotiate an out of court settlement if possible. If not, your claim will go to court, for a judge to make a decision on whether you are eligible for compensation, and how much this compensation will be.
What Are My Rights To Make A Personal Injury Claim?
As we covered in a previous section, you will need to have been harmed by the actions of a third party, in order for personal injury lawyers to process a claim for you. The third party needs to be any distinct legal entity, for example:
- The company you work for.
- Your GP.
- A local restaurant.
- Your corner shop.
- A family member.
- The local housing authority.
- Your landlord.
- The local council.
- An NHS hospital.
As you can see, just about any company, private individual or organisation can be pursued for damages in an accident or injury claim. To find out who may be liable in your own case, speak to one of the Legal Expert team on the number at the bottom of this guide.
Checklist And Tips For Finding A Personal Injury Solicitor
If you need to find a good solicitor to process your personal injury claim, it could take some time to vet a number of possible legal firms. Using the questions below will help you with this process:
- Does the solicitor offer a fee structure that is conditional on your claim being successful?
- Does the solicitor expect you to pay anything to start working on your claim?
- Will the solicitor expect you to pay ongoing legal fees as they process your claim?
- Has the solicitor won similar claims to your own in the last year?
- Can the solicitor arrange additional services, such as arranging for you to have a free medical examination in King’s Lynn to support your claim?
Legal Expert can help you with this selection process, by explaining to you how our claims service works. We won’t charge you anything until you win your claim. Speak to one of our team on the number at the end of the page to learn more.
Should You Read Online Solicitor Reviews?
Another way that you can vet a prospective legal firm, is to try and find an online solicitor review of them. If you do, alongside the checklist we covered in the section above, you need to check these facts as well:
- How old is the review and is it still relevant?
- Was the review positive?
- Are there any comments left about the review, and do they refute it?
- Did the reviewer list and pros and cons of dealing with the legal firm?
- Does the review cover a type of claim that is close enough to your own to be relevant?
If you need some help with finding out how best to commence with your claim, Legal Expert can help you. If you speak to one of our team on the number at the end of the page, they will go over your claim with you, explain your legal options, and help you to get your claim started.
Should I Use A Local Legal Firm?
You may think that you have no choice and are legally bound to use local Kings Lynn personal injury solicitors to process your claim. This would be an incorrect assumption. You can use any solicitors in the UK, no matter where they happen to be located.

Medical Negligence Claims
The graph above shows the main cause of hospital admissions due to an accident in Norfolk. The graph is based on data collected for a report by Norfolk County Council. Anyone admitted to the hospital has a chance of being harmed through medical negligence. Whenever a medical professional fails in their duty of care towards a patient and causes them harm, then a reason to make a claim should exist.
Legal Expert has helped many people make claims for negligence, and we are certain that we can help you as well. You might like to check out this full guide to this type of claim, here:
Slip And Fall Claims
One of the most common types of claims is for slip, trip or fall accidents. These accidents can happen anywhere, at any time, due to hazards such as:
- Obstructions that have been left on a public pathway.
- Wet or dirty floors that have not been properly signposted as a hazard.
- Damaged floor coverings, such as torn carpets or cracked tiles.
- Broken curbstones and paving slabs on the street.

Serious Injury Claims
These claims can often result in large compensation payments. This is because the serious nature of the injuries will have a permanent, negative effect on the quality of life of the victim. The kinds of injuries that are classed as serious can include:
- Brain damage.
- Amputation of a limb.
- Loss of mobility.
- Internal organ damage.
- Delipidating diseases.
Legal Expert can help you to make sure that you receive the most compensation possible for your serious injury. We have produced a complete guide to these types of claims, which can be found here:

What Does No Win No Fee Mean?
To answer the question, what is No Win No Fee? It is an agreement whereby a solicitor won’t charge anything until they have successfully won compensation for their client. For example, in a No Win No Fee car accident claim, if the solicitor fails to win the claim, then they charge nothing at all.
What Fees Will I Be Charged?
When you use Legal Expert as your solicitor, we really mean No Win No Fee. When we take your claim on, there is no fee. As we process your claim for you, there is no fee. If we fail to win you any compensation, again, there is no fee. We only take a fee when we have received a compensation payment for you. We will then take our fee from the money received, and give you the remainder.
Feel free to contact us now if you still have any questions about using Kings Lynn personal injury solicitors on a No Win No Fee basis.
