Types of claims

We’ve been in business for a while, and during this time we’ve seen pretty much every type of claim under the sun. Below, we’ve listed pages with information on the most common types of claims we’ve come across. The list below by no means covered everything, so if you don’t spot what you’re looking, call the freephone number on this page to speak to a trained legal adviser, or enter your name and phone number in one of the secure online forms on this page to request a callback.

Am I eligible to make an accident claim?

If you’ve been injured in an accident in the last three years due to the negligence or intentional harm of another, you are in a position to make a claim for personal injury compensation. You should not be forced to suffer through pain, suffering and the burden of costly medical care because of another’s actions.

Legally, you must be at least 18 years old to make a claim for compensation. However, this doesn’t mean that minors are left out to dry. If you are under the age of majority and you have sustained a personal injury, your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) can claim on your behalf, otherwise you must wait until your 18th birthday to file a claim for compensation.

Will it cost me anything?

Making a claim for compensation doesn’t have to cost a fortune! You shouldn’t have to live with the consequences of another person’s negligence just because you can’t afford the legal fees. No Win No Fee is a conditional agreement between the client and solicitor. Hiring a No Win No Fee solicitor means that you won’t be responsible for expensive legal fees if you case is lost – and if you win, you pay a maximum of 25% of the compensation you are awarded. No financial risk means that you can access the legal representation you deserve. No Win No Fee guarantees peace of mind.

What is the accident claim process?

If you’ve recently suffered an accident, the most important thing you need to do is seek medical attention. Your health is top priority. Do not even think about your compensation claim until your doctor confirms that you are well enough. As soon as you’re in the clear, you should speak to a qualified personal injury specialist about your claim. This is where Claims.co.uk can help. Simply call a trained legal adviser free on 0800 234 6438 or fill out the online claim form and they will put you in touch with an expert injury lawyer who will be able to discuss your chances of success, potential compensation awards and advise you on your next steps.

How long will my claim take?

Unfortunately there is no telling exactly how long the claims process will take. The reality is that everyone’s claim is different. Some claims may be simple and straightforward, but others are not so cut and dry. With some claims, it may take longer to prove liability, fault or injury, for example. Your personal injury solicitor will be able to give you a better idea of the time frame you’re looking at.

Have you been involved in an accident? Were you injured because of another person’s actions? If so, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. A personal injury specialist is standing by! Contact them today on 0800 234 6438 to discuss your claim.

Other Important Information

*No Win No Fee

  • Although all our cases are handled on a no win no fee basis, other costs could be payable upon solicitors request. These will be fully explained to you before you proceed. Most customers will pay 25% (including VAT) of the compensation they are awarded to their law firm, although this may vary based on individual circumstances. Your solicitor may arrange for insurance to be in place for you to make sure your claim is risk free. Termination fees based on time spent may apply, or in situations such as: lack of cooperation or deliberately misleading our solicitors, or failing to go to any medical or expert examination, or court hearing.
  • *Criminal Injury Claims

  • If you want to make a claim for a criminal injury, you are not required to use the services of a claims management company to pursue the claim. You can submit your claim for free on your own behalf, directly to the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (England, Wales, and Scotland) or the Criminal Injury Compensation Scheme (Northern Ireland).

When you submit your details, you'll be in safe hands. Our partners are National Accident Helpline (a brand of National Accident Law, a firm of personal injury solicitors regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority). They are the UK's leading personal injury service. Their friendly legal services advisers will call you to talk about your claim and give you free, no-obligation advice. National Accident Law may pay us a marketing fee for our services.

By submitting your personal data, you agree for your details to be sent to National Accident Law so they can contact you to discuss your claim.

If you win your case, your solicitor's success fee will be taken from the compensation you are awarded - up to a maximum of 25%. Your solicitor will discuss any fees before starting your case.
