Making a Claim With Our Newcastle-Under-Lyme Team Of Solicitors
Once you’ve spoken to one of our Newcastle-Under-Lyme claim specialists who will ascertain whether you have a valid case for compensation, to construct the foundations of your case, your solicitor will need to know:
- The date of your accident
- Details of how the accident happened
- Where the accident happened
- Details of the injuries you sustained
- Any medical diagnoses and treatment you received
- Whether or not you are a member of any trade unions (this could mean you are entitled to free legal representation)
Our personal injury solicitors might also need to look at:
- Documentary evidence of loss of any earnings and expenses that may have occurred due to the injury you have sustained.
- Documentation about any insurance cover you have such as motor or household policies that may cover the costs of your claim.
- Any other documents that could be used to strengthen your compensation case.
Once your solicitor has all this information, they should be able to inform you of:
- How strong your claim is.
- A rough estimate of how much your claim may be worth.
Your solicitor will also inform you about the processes involved when proceeding with your claim and will talk with you about how your case will be funded. Don’t be afraid to write all this down and ask any questions that you need answering, our solicitors will be more than happy to put at rest any concerns you have.
Starting Your Claim
The first step your personal injury solicitor for Newcastle-Under-Lyme will take will be to send a claim letter to the defendant, the person who is allegedly responsible for your accident. This will set out the details of what injuries or injury you have and the circumstances in which it took place.
The defendant will then have approximately three months to investigate and reply to the claim letter. Their reply should say whether they deny or accept responsibility. If they do accept responsibility, your specialist solicitor shall then try to settle the matter out of court.
Making An Offer
Our injury solicitor will then be able to put a value on your claim. Your solicitor might also wnat to know if you have an idea of the amount of personal injury compensation that you are willing to accept and if you would want to make what is known as an ‘offer to settle’ for that compensation amount, also known as a ‘Part 36 offer’.
Your specialist solicitor for Newcastle-Under-Lyme will give you advice as to whether they think it’s a good step to make a ‘Part 36’ offer and how it may affect your case. If the defendant accepts the ‘Part 36’ offer and a compensation amount is agreed upon, the compensation claim can be settled without it having to go to court.
Settlements At Court
If a settlement cannot be made out of court, your personal injury solicitor will offer their expert opinion on whether you should proceed with legal action. This will mean going to court where it will be heard before a judge.
You may think this is daunting but it isn’t really and you’ll have our expert Newcastle-Under-Lyme legal team at your side who will explain everything that is going on and answer any questions you have. Once the case has been heard, it is then just a question of waiting for the judge to decide on the outcome of the case and finding out if you have won and have been awarded compensation.
No Win No Fee AKA Conditional Fee Agreements
We take cases on on a No Win No Fee basis. This is also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement. These were introduced in 1998 as a solution for those people who could not afford legal representation.
How Do They Work?
Essentially,you only pay for your solicitors work on the condition that your case is successful and you receive compensation. That means if your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t be charged a penny. That means there is no risk at all for you taking out a claim as you won’t be it with any sort of bill should you lose.
What Are The Advantages of Entering Into a Conditional Fee Agreement?
- If the case is lost, you do not need to pay for any solicitors fees.
- If the case is won, you know exactly how much the fee you will be paying (an agreed percentage, agreed before commencement of the case).
- Because your solicitors fee is based on a percentage of the claim, it is in their interest to get you the maximum amount of compensation.
