Sheffield Personal Injury Solicitors Guide – No Win No Fee Claims
On this page, you will find a guide to choosing the best firm of personal injury solicitors to process a personal injury claim on your behalf. It contains everything you need to know about making a claim, and also covers some of the most common types of claims. You must be within the personal injury claim time limit of three years to make a claim. If you are, this guide should be useful to you.
How To Make Your Personal Injury Claim
Legal Expert is a team of personal injury solicitors, which has proven to be very effective in processing accident claims on behalf of our clients. We have a history of winning substantial compensation payments, across many different types of claims.
We always approach a claim, intending to get the most compensation possible for the claimant. Yet, we won’t ever take any actions that might threaten your ability to claim, or jeopardise your chance of winning compensation.
When you decide to use our national claims service, you gain access to a number of additional services. For example, if you need to undergo a medical examination to prove how severe your injuries were, Legal Expert can arrange a free examination in the Sheffield area for you.
Choosing The Best No Win No Fee Solicitor Can Be Critical To Your Claim
In order to have the maximum possibility of having a successful outcome to your claim, you need to find the best personal injury lawyer to process your claim for you. All legal firms are not the same. Some of them only focus on specific types of cases, or areas of the law. Others only offer legal services such as conveyancing. What you really need, is a specialist legal firm that deals with accident claims. Legal Expert is such a legal firm, we process hundreds of accident claims every year, and offer our claims service to people all across the UK.
Read Reviews Of Different Solicitors And Lawyers In Your Area
As stated above, finding the best solicitor to process your claim is critical. However, how do you go about this? How do you sort the good from the bad? One useful tool, is a review site. If you can find a good review site that covers solicitors, and allows members of the public to post reviews, this is a good place to start your search. When you are reading and comparing the reviews, make a note of information such as:
- The date of the review – is it up to date or too old to still be relevant?
- The claim it details – the claim the review is based on needs to be similar to your own.
- The contents of the review – what is the reviewer saying? Did they have a good or bad experience with the legal firm? What were the pros and cons of using them?
- Comments – if people have commented on the review, do the comments generally agree with the reviewer, or are they saying the review is wrong?
- The fees structure – does the solicitor the review is about offer a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)? If so, what percentage of the compensation settlement will they take as their fee?
Does The Location Of A Solicitor Matter?
It might seem logical to you to use a local Sheffield solicitor to process your claim, as it will be easier dealing with a local firm. You could use a local firm if you wish to, but there is no real reason to do so. You can keep in touch with your legal team using the telephone and email no matter where they are located. A more important consideration than physical location, is how effective your solicitor will be in processing your claim.
Some legal firms, such as us here at Legal Expert, work nationwide, helping people all across the UK to make accident claims. Our team can book for you to have a medical assessment in the area. Our local medical experts include,

What Personal Injury Claims Does Legal Expert Conduct?
Legal Expert can process any type of personal injury claims Sheffield residents may need assistance with. We successfully win compensation for hundreds of clients every year, across a very wide range of different types of claims. However, there are some types of claims we handle more often than others. So, although we are happy to take on any type of claims, these below are the most frequent that our clients come to us with.
Workplace Industrial Disease Claims
Despite strict UK Government legislation, intended to ensure that every company operates a healthy environment for their staff, industrial disease and illness claims are quite common. Some environments, such as working in a nuclear power station, a mine, etc. can expose employees to a higher risk of illness. Legal Expert can help you to claim compensation, if you have contracted a work-related illness due to your employer exposing you to a health hazard.
Claim For Instances Of Medical Negligence
Legal Expert can act as your medical negligence lawyers, if you have come to harm due to the negligent actions of a medical professional. Every doctor, specialist, consultant, nurse and member of care staff, has a duty of care towards their patients. If they fail in this duty and cause harm to a patient, then clinical negligence will be deemed to have occurred. In this case, Legal Expert should be able to help you to claim compensation. We have the experience required to tackle large organisations such as the NHS, winning compensation for our clients.

Your employer has a legal obligation to provide you with a safe working environment, free of health hazards.

Slip, Trip, And Fall Injury Claims
Of all of the types of accident claims we process here at Legal Expert, the most common after road traffic accidents, are slips, trips and falls. These accidents can happen anywhere, at any time. Either in a public place, or at work. Something as simple as a wet floor in a restaurant can cause a slip, which results in serious injuries. If you are injured in a slip, trip or fall, Legal Expert should be able to help you to make a compensation claim for your injuries.
What Are Serious Injury Claims?
A serious injury claim is any claim that involves claiming for life-changing injuries. Injuries such as paraplegia, quadriplegia, loss of a limb, damage to one of the internal organs or severe brain damages are examples of such injuries. When Legal Expert processes a claim for serious injuries, we know that we are likely going to need to claim for additional types of damages. These damages will compensate the claimant for the loss of life-quality, inability to work, and other long-term effects of their injuries.
