Runcorn Personal Injury Services FAQs
Do all personal injury cases go to trial?
No, far from it. Most cases are settled out of court by negotiation, and all parties agree upon a settlement. Even if your case does go to court, there is no need to worry. Our personal injury solicitors covering Runcorn are expert advocates and will present your case strongly in front of the judge.
How long do I have to file my claim?
You have three years from the date of the accident. Don’t let that make you think you will do it sometime in the future though, three years comes around quick, and you don’t want to wake up one day and realise that you have missed your chance to claim thousands of pounds in compensation.
How much does a personal injury claim cost?
Our personal injury lawyers for Runcorn work on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that there are absolutely no upfront fees. If your case is successful, then we will take a pre-agreed percentage of your compensation claim. If you are not successful, then you owe us nothing. With our Runcorn No Win No Fee service, you really cannot find yourself losing out.
How much is my personal injury case worth?
Personal injury cases range from small amounts such as £1,000 for small, minor injuries up to millions of pounds for life-changing and fatal injuries. Every case is treated on its own individual merits, and only once we have studied it carefully can we give you a ballpark figure of how much it might be worth.
If I claim against my employer, can I be sacked?
Of course, this is a possibility that most employers would be silly to do because it would be classed as unfair dismissal, which would open them up for more costly legal action. Don’t let a worry like this put you off getting the compensation you deserve.
What is the process that you will have to follow?
The personal injury process is quite straightforward, if not a little drawn out. Once we’ve fully assessed your Runcorn case, we will submit a claim for compensation against the defendant, who will then have to respond within 3 months.
So, what happens if they do accept responsibility?
If they admit liability (which many do), we will obtain medical evidence, work out your loss of earnings and other expenses, and negotiate a full and fair settlement.
We will still gather medical and expenses evidence if the defendant does not admit liability, and then we will issue court proceedings and have your case heard in front of a judge.
What chance do I have of winning?
We can’t say for certain the exact chances of your Runcorn personal injury case being successful, but what we can say is that we are successful in the vast majority of our cases and have recovered a huge amount of compensation for our clients. When you use our Runcorn personal injury team, you really are in the hands of professionals.
