Relevant FAQs

If, for whatever reason, you are unable to win compensation for your claim, you will not pay anything. If your claim is successful, then we will take a percentage to cover our fee and the After the Event Insurance policy (ATE) – this will all be confirmed with you before we move ahead with your claim.

It also means that you are covered if the case goes to court and covered from the other side’s costs as long as you listen to our advice and do not mislead us in any way

Many people expect their local firm to have a better idea of their own circumstances, but the reality is that a majority of law firms (local or otherwise) operate in the same way (via letter, email, and phone) so there should be no difference between using Accident Claims Lawyers or a local firm, save to say that Accident Claims Lawyers are specialists in Personal Injury Claims.

If the claimant proceeds via their insurer, it simply means that their insurer will pass the claimant’s details to a law firm of their choosing. We would operate in the same way as the law firm recommended by the insurer except to say that we are completely independent. Some insurers will either be owned or underwritten by other insurers which may impact on the way the claim is dealt with. We however have no ties to any insurer, so our advice is given with only the claimant’s best interests at heart

We take the details needed for the Legal Team to advise you. If we cannot obtain those details, then our Legal Team (or any Legal Team for that matter) will not be able to assist.

We can add a note to your file to advise that your case is not to be accepted until someone from the Legal Team has called you to advise on valuation and next steps, however, until we have the full details of your claim the Legal Team will be unable to provide any advice or valuations.

Please note, NO firm would be able to provide you with an accurate assessment of the damages you will receive without seeing the medical evidence first, anyone that does would merely be guessing.

For the Legal Team to be able to provide you with advice, we would firstly need to take the details of the claim in full.

Once we have all the information we require, should you decide to pursue the claim with us, we will then advise you of what our terms and conditions. It is not possible to submit your file until have agreed to our terms and conditions, so you should review these at this stage in order to make an informed decision.

Once you have agreed to these, we will submit your file to the Legal Team to review. A note will be added to your file and your case will not be accepted until the Legal Team have called you first to discuss what you need before you make a final decision.

We will only contact you when we have an update to your claim or require any further information from you. You can also specify that email is preferred if you like however there would be some things that we would need to discuss over the phone.

As we are independent and not connected with your insurance company, we would not be able to advise you of this as we do not know how your insurance company works or what your policy entails however, usually if the Third Party is found to be at fault, then your policy should not be affected. You would need to discuss this with your insurance company for a definitive answer.

We only require one short medical appointment from you which we can arrange at a time convenient for you and in your local area. We can also contact you at your preferred times or use email if this is better for you.

A lot of our cases are settled prior to court, if it does go to court you still may not be required to attend. If you did need to attend, it would be a court local to yourself and we would discuss this with you, always acting in your best interest.

You will have taken out the After the Event Insurance policy (ATE) or have your own Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) so this covers you from paying any charges and ensures the no win no fee. The only time you would have to pay additional charges to what we have agreed would be if you go against our advice, are fraudulent, non-compliant or if you cancel.

All that we require from you is for you to attend your medical appointment so that it can be used as evidence and so the defendant can make an offer for your claim and for you to be co-operative throughout the duration of the claims process.

Your claim will be dealt with by a specialist team who will go through further information with you, they will go more in depth about the accident details and look to fight your side.

We will provide you with advice throughout as we always act in your best interest.

A number of factors make up how long a claim will last and, again, neither we, nor any other Solicitor, can give any guarantees on how long the claim may take to be resolved. However, where liability is admitted, and the medical evidence does not require further treatment or investigation, we would expect a road traffic accident claim to be resolved in 90 days. Non-RTAs may take longer

The amount of compensation varies depending on a number of factors and it is impossible for us, or any other Solicitor for that matter, to provide a valuation on the claim until medical evidence has been obtained. That said, our average level of compensation is in the region of £3,000 although the actual amount received could be higher or lower than that. Finally, we will consult with the claimant upon receipt of any offers and will not proceed to accept/reject those without their agreement

A solicitor would not deal with the whole case as we believe that we are able to progress the case more efficiently by having a team provide assistance to the claimant. However, a solicitor, or equally qualified person, will review the file and provide advice at key points.

We will need to share your information with third party companies for a number of reasons. For example we would need to share your information with the third party insurer to submit your claim to them and we would need to share your information with the medical agency in order for them to arrange a suitable medical appointment.

Please rest assured that your information will only be shared with third party companies that are required to complete a service in order to progress your claim as efficiently as possible, your information will not be shared with any public source.

The third parties that we would need to share information about your claim with will include any that have recommended us to you, the third party insurers who your claim will be submitted to, the medical agency who will arrange your physiotherapy and medical appointment, your After the Event Insurance provider (ATE policy) and others that may have been involved with dealing with some aspect of your accident such as a repair or hire company.

Please rest assured that we will not share your information with any public source, only those that help us progress your claim as efficiently as possible by providing us with information we need in order to progress your claim.

We would not share your information with any public source who may then cold call you. We would only share information with companies who are involved within your claims process and need the data in order to complete the services required in order to progress your claim.

Yes, but in order to do so we would need an up front payment on account of £2,000 to cover costs which will be incurred in order to progress the claim; things such as the cost of the medical report, engineers report (if needed), Court fees, etc. The reason why we would need the up front payment is that these fees are paid by Accident Claims Lawyers initially and if the claim fails the Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) would repay those. Without LEI to guarantee the payment, the suppliers (medical agencies, etc) will not agree to provide the report on a credit basis and will want to be paid up front.
Yes, but we would not be able to start work on the claim until the After the Event Insurance Policy (ATE) has been obtained and provided to us along with the terms and conditions. The reason for this is that we are only able to offer a “No Win, No Fee” Agreement because the ATE will pay the costs of the claim where there is “No Win”.

If we were to start work and the ATE Policy did not provide correct cover, it would put the Claimant, and Accident Claims Lawyers, at risk of incurring costs which we would each be liable for. We recommend against this as we know the ATE Products we recommend provide cover and obtaining those immediately avoids delaying the claim.

The reason for this is that we are only able to offer a “No Win, No Fee” Agreement because the After the Event Insurance (ATE) will pay the costs of the claim where there is “No Win”. If we were to start work and the Claimant’s LEI Policy did not provide correct cover, it would put the Claimant, and Accident Claims Lawyers, at risk of incurring costs which we would each be liable for.

We recommend against this as we know the ATE Products, we recommend provide cover and obtaining those immediately avoids delaying the claim. Instead, we recommend that the ATE Policy is obtained and the Claimant provides the LEI details within seven days. Once we have those details, we will make investigations regarding the LEI and, if it does provide sufficient cover, we will cancel the ATE Policy.

If you still wish to have no work starting on your claim until you have confirmed your own LEI, we will note this on your file and put a hold on until this is done.

The no win no fee agreement applies to the 25% that Accident Claims Lawyers deducts from the compensation if the claimant is successful, if the case was unsuccessful the TP will have the right to charge the claimant for any fees they have incurred during the claims process, the claimant would also be liable to pay for any court fees or medical reports. The After the Event Insurance policy (ATE) covers this if they were unsuccessful and also acts as a no win no fee agreement.
After the Event Insurance (ATE) is in place if you don’t have your own Legal Expense cover. We need to put a policy in place as if your case were to be unsuccessful for any reason, you could potentially be responsible for the defendant’s costs. It would be irresponsible for us as your solicitors to allow you to take this risk. The cost of the policy will be deducted from the compensation you receive at the end if your claim is successful. Full details of the amount to be deducted will be included on your policy document. If your claim is unsuccessful, the cost of the policy will be written off.
Our fee is capped at 25% and is non-negotiable, you can discuss this further with your file handler once you have been assigned one if you like however, the likelihood is that there will be no change to the fee. At this stage all we can advise is that we will take a maximum of 25% for our fees, we cannot progress your claim further if you are not happy to agree to the 25%.

Your claim will be dealt with by a specialist team who will go through further information with you, they will go more in depth about the accident details and look to fight your side.

We will provide you with advice throughout as we always act in your best interest.
