Merseyside Personal Injury Solicitors – No Win No Fee Claims
By Mark Ainsdale. Last Updated 29th September 2021. Welcome to our Merseyside personal injury solicitors. If you have been injured in an accident in Merseyside, you will rightly be considering seeking compensation. The fast-paced life we lead today means the chances of an accident are higher than ever before. From road traffic accidents and product liability cases to workplace accidents and slips, trips, and falls, there are so many different ways an individual can be injured.
No matter what has happened to you, if you are thinking about using the services of Merseyside personal injury solicitors or those covering the area but based outside of it, this guide reveals everything you could need to know about how to claim online, or dial 0800 073 8804 to find out even more about claiming.
Personal Injury Claims Explained
What is a personal injury claim? This is a claim launched to secure compensation for the victim of an accident that was not their fault. So, if Merseyside personal injury solicitors win your claim for you, then you will receive the following…
General Damages – This is the first part of your compensation when making an accident claim. This is designed to compensate you for your injuries. It is calculated based on the severity of your injury and the impact it is going to have on your everyday life. Therefore, the worse your injury is, the more money you will receive regarding general damages.
Special Damages – Next, we have special damages. This is the money you will receive to compensate for any costs you have encountered because of your injuries. This can include prescription costs, treatment expenses, counselling costs, costs of travel, loss of income, repair expenses, childcare costs, accommodation fees, and more.
How Legal Expert Can Help If You Were The Victim Of An Accident Which Was Not Your Fault
We will match you to the best personal injury lawyer from our team based on the ins and outs of your personal injury claim. They will handle the entire process for you, ensuring you get the maximum amount of compensation available.
What Affects Eligibility To Claim Compensation?
The first thing you need to do is determine if it is worth making an accident claim. Ask yourself the following three questions regarding the eligibility for personal injury claims in the UK…
- Who caused the incident?
- Did you see a doctor for your injuries?
- When did the accident occur?
These three questions will help you to determine whether you have a strong chance of compensation. Firstly, you need to be able to show that someone else caused the incident. You certainly won’t be able to make an accident claim if you are at fault.
Aside from this, you must see a doctor, as the medical report is one of the most vital pieces of evidence. The date of the incident is also important, as there is a three-year time limit on all personal injury cases.
Your Checklist For Finding A Personal Injury Solicitor
Finding the best Merseyside personal injury solicitors to work on your compensation case is no easy challenge. Many people end up abandoning their search altogether, as they get frustrated with the exorbitant prices charged by solicitors, and they can often end up feeling like it is not worth it. But don’t abandon your search just yet. If you are entitled to compensation, you don’t want to miss out on the money you deserve, and so read on for some top advice on finding a personal injury claim barrister.
Choose a No Win No Fee solicitor – One of the most effective ways to combat the enormous prices charged by most solicitors is to go for someone offering a No Win, No Fee service. By doing this, you won’t have to make a huge upfront payment while the financial risk is also eliminated. This is because you will not need to pay any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful. There is no denying that making a claim is stressful enough, without all of the worries about the potential financial implications of losing your case. Thankfully, you don’t need to fret about this when going down the No Win, No Fee route.
Look for an experienced solicitor – It is vital to find a solicitor with a large degree of experience and who has worked on cases similar to yours time and time before. After all, there is no point paying for the services of a solicitor that specialises in workplace accidents if you have been involved in a bus accident.
See what other personal injury victims have had to say – Last but not least, testimonials can be very telling. Before you make your final decision, you should do a quick search of the solicitor online to see if any reviews have been left about them. This will give you a unique insight into the service you are likely to experience. If a solicitor has a bad reputation, you will know to start your search again.
Luckily, you don’t need to stress about your search for the best accident solicitor anymore. Legal Expert is a company that is built on experience. We have helped thousands of personal injury victims. All of the Merseyside personal injury solicitors work to No Win No Fee payment agreements, and we have a helpline that is open seven days a week if you have any questions or concerns.
Check Reviews Of Solicitors Covering Your Area
As mentioned in the previous section, online solicitor review websites can be extremely helpful while on your quest to find the best personal injury lawyers. Nevertheless, it is important to use independent review websites to be certain the comments are 100% authentic. Furthermore, you should consider the comments as a whole. Get a feel for the overall vibe. Do not let one negative comment cloud your entire judgment. Moreover, while reviews are helpful, there is no substitute for speaking to the solicitor and getting expert advice, which is exactly what Legal Expert can give you.
Are You Restricted To Using Local Solicitors?
Many people assume that their only option is to make a claim using the services of Merseyside personal injury solicitors if they have been injured in the area. However, this could not be further from the truth. You won’t have to use Merseyside personal injury solicitors. You can use the services of any personal injury law firm based in the UK. This is because claims are handled via telephone and email today. Therefore, rather than prioritising location, you can look for the best possible service. Here at Legal Expert, we provide our services all over the UK, and there are a plethora of medical experts in Merseyside you could see locally as part of your compensation claim.

Merseyside Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs
How long does the personal injury claims process take?
A typical claim usually reaches its conclusion between 12 and 18 months after it begins.
Why might the claims process reach a quick resolution?
One explanation could be that it’s a high-profile case where the evidence against the defendant is overwhelming.
And why might a claim take longer to reach its conclusion?
Perhaps the evidence isn’t strong, or the defendant stands their ground in refusing to admit liability.
What is the latest point that both sides could agree on a settlement before the trial?
It is possible for the settlement to only receive confirmation the day before the trial itself.
What are the chances of the case going before a judge?
Very low, as only around 5% of claims go to court.
Why is this the case?
That’s because it costs more for both sides to take it to court rather than settling beforehand.
What is the upside of the case going to court?
For the claimant, they have the opportunity to win their maximum compensation target if they’re successful.
And when will the claimant receive their compensation settlement?
The defendant must pay out the compensation no more than 28 days after the final agreement or judge’s ruling.
