What Are Injury Claims?
Injury claims is a legal process to get compensation for an injury. This is the money you receive in recognition of an injury. It covers any costs you may have incurred already due to injury and also any costs that are likely to arise in the future. It also covers any lost earnings, the loss of potential future earnings and also a sum to cover the pain and suffering you have experienced.
In order to make a claim for your injury, you send legal documents to the responsible person for your injury, to let him know about your action of making an injury claim and to ask them whether they accept responsibility for what has happened. Further legal processes may be necessary before they accept liability and then you talk about how much compensation is fair for your injury.
Making a claim can seem daunting, which is why our friendly team are here to guide you through the process, sending the letters, gathering evidence and giving you expert advice as to whether to accept an offer and so on. We want to make the process as easy and stress free as possible.
When Can I Claim For Personal Injury?
You can claim compensation if you really get an injury or harm because of someone’s fault. This doesn’t have to mean that they were the direct cause of the accident. Your employer can be liable for an accident at work, for example, if they did not give you the correct personal protective equipment (PPE). Similarly, slipping and falling on the pavement can just be an accident, but if it is the result of poorly maintained paving and the other party had a responsibility for the upkeep of that paving, they would be liable for your injury claim.
In extreme cases, it may also be possible to make an injury claim on behalf of someone else. This is usually in cases of serious injury or death when the victim cannot claim themselves. In this case, the next of kin would be in the unfortunate position of having to make an injury claim on their behalf. These cases can be very complex and we would strongly recommend that you call one of our injury specialists on 0121 565 4317 in order to discuss this claim in more detail.

You should make sure about above mentioned problems before making an injury claim. The amount of compensation you could expect to receive would depend of which injuries you had sustained, as well as a variety of other factors. If you have been the victim of one of these injuries, call us on 0121 565 4317 or claim online to see whether we can help you make a no win no fee injury claim.
How Do Injury Claims Work?
In order to make an injury claim, you would normally first sign an agreement with a solicitor. With our no win no fee solicitors, you are able to handle your claim. You do not need to pay anything until we have won your claim. If we are unsuccessful in getting you compensation for your injury claim, you will not have to pay anything.
Once we have made a no win no fee agreement, we would write to the person responsible for your injury, letting them know that you were making a claim for compensation following a personal injury. They would then have a set amount of time to let us known whether they were accepting that they were at fault (this is known as accepting liability) or whether we needed to collect more evidence to show that your injury was their fault.
Once we have enough evidence and they have accepted liability, we will then negotiate on your behalf to agree the amount of compensation you deserve.Both parties should settle an injury claim without going to court.
Occasionally, the other party will not accept that they were at fault. It is impossible to find an amount of compensation that both parties can agree on. In these cases, we would be with you throughout the whole court process. We’ll make sure that you get the compensation you deserve for the injury you’ve suffered.
Only when you agree and receive (this is known as settlement) do you have to pay anything for our services. This means that you are able to make an injury claim with complete confidence. You will never be left out of pocket for trying to get the compensation you deserve.
How Do I Make An Injury Claim?
The first step in making an injury claim is to appoint a solicitor. Some solicitors require payment up front to work on your personal injury claim. We prefer to work on a no win no fee basis. This means you do not have to pay anything up front. You only receive the amount if you win your claim for compensation for your injury. Call us on 0121 565 4317 or claim online to talk to our friendly, experienced team. We will discuss the details of your case with you and explain the whole process. We tell how much compensation you can expect to receive, and make sure that you are happy to go ahead.
Having discussed your personal injury claim with you, we will let you know whether we are able to offer a no win no fee payment agreement for your case. There are a few situations where we are not able to offer this service, but we will make sure to let you know clearly what the situation is and what your alternatives are if we are not able to offer a no win no fee arrangement.
How Much Can I Claim For My Injury?
The amount that you can claim differs depending on a variety of factors. These include the severity of the injury, how much it has affected your life and finance. Your compensation money takes you back to where you would have been if you didn’t get an injury.
We will always make sure that we let you know from the start how much compensation we believe you are entitled to, based on the information you tell us. During the negotiations, we will explain the reasons of the offer of other side. We will let you know whether we think that it is a reasonable offer. No matter what advice we give you, you will always decide your decision whether to accept an offer of compensation or not. We will support you through the whole process.
