Do your personal injury solicitors take ‘no win, no fee’ cases?

Each case is assessed to see if it qualifies, in which case we may offer a ‘no win, no fee’ arrangement. This means that if you lose your case, you won’t be liable for our fees. Contact a member of our personal injury team to discuss your options and for advice on how best to fund your claim.

Is there a time limit for making a personal injury claim?

Yes, your claim should usually be issued with 3 years of the date of the accident, so we recommend speaking to one of our personal injury lawyers as soon as possible about whether your claim can be made within an appropriate timeframe.

How much will it cost to make a claim?

It depends entirely on the nature and complexity of your personal claim. If you have a suitable basis for a claim, we can normally offer a ‘no win, no fee’ arrangement. You may even have an existing insurance policy that will cover the cost of your claim. Speak to our personal injury solicitors who will advise you of your options and the best way to fund your claim.

How long will my personal injury claim take?

Every claim is different and we won’t be able to provide a realistic timescale until your case is underway. Those involving serious injury or where blame is disputed can take much longer than others, particularly if your ongoing care costs need to be negotiated.

Can I make a claim against an uninsured driver?

Yes, you can still make a claim if you’ve been injured by an uninsured driver, however your claim is likely to involve the Motors Insurance Bureau in addition to the uninsured driver. Our personal injury solicitors in Bristol have successfully represented clients in this situation and can talk to you about your options.

Can I be sacked for making a personal injury claim against my employer?

No, your employer can’t take action against you for this reason. It’s worth bearing in mind that compensation claims for workplace accidents are normally dealt with by your employer’s insurance company and not by your employer themselves.
