3.How much compensation can I claim for?
While it depends entirely on the type and severity of the injuries you have suffered, typical claims are for between GBP 2,000 and GBP 10,000.

7. What does the term 'no win no fee' actually mean?
A: No win no fee is the phrase given to a case where the accident lawyers don't charge any costs if they lose the case. Because of this rule, solicitors have to believe that they can win the case that they are taking on . Even when someone wins their case, they still don't effectively pay the solicitor's costs, as they are recovered from the other side.
8. What can I claim for?
A: If we look at accident claims as an example, then the person who was affected in the accident can claim for their personal injury. This includes the initial injury they suffered as well as any lasting effects they feel and also the mental effect it had on them. They can also claim accident compensation for any loss of earnings they may have had while they were injured, meaning how long they were unable to work or work effectively.
9. How will my claim be calculated?
A: Compensation amounts vary and no case ever really gets a set figure. When calculating a fee, the first thing that is considered is how your injury happened and how bad it was. This will then be combined with similar previous cases and legal guidelines to give a final figure.
10. Will my case go to court?
A: Going to court is often seen as a last resort because of the increased cost to the losing side. Because of this cost, most cases will be settled out of court to avoid it.
