An accident solicitor is a personal injury lawyer. They are responsible for helping their clients bring forward accident compensation cases against individuals, private businesses or public authorities who have caused accidents resulting in injury. Here at Accident Claims UK many of the solicitors have been in the industry for many years and have dealt with some of the most complex of cases so have the capabilities and competence to be able to assist you with yours regardless of the complexity of the case.
Accident Claims UK can provide you with a no win no fee solicitor for your claim. Having a no win no fee agreement with your personal injury solicitor is important. A no win no fee deal means you don’t have to pay any money upfront, nor will you have to pay your accident solicitor for his or her services if your accident compensation claim is unsuccessful.
The only money that a no win no fee accident claim solicitor will receive will be a prearranged portion of the compensation you are awarded, which will be no more than 25%, which of course they will only be able to receive if your accident claim is successful. Our panel of accident solicitors offer this form of service in order for you to be able to make an accident claim for compensation you may be owed without being discouraged by the expense of legal fees.
We enjoy a healthcare service that is quite rightly held in high regard in the UK. Most people who receive medical treatment in either NHS hospitals or from private providers will receive an excellent standard of care. However, if the standard was to fall below that expected standard patients could become harmed through no fault of their own. Medical negligence is when the treatment that a patient receives falls below that which is expected of a medical professional with a duty of care or if the patient is harmed as a result of medical professionals failing to follow the correct procedure and the patient suffers unnecessarily.
Medical negligence can result in serious illness, injury or even death. Our panel of accident claims solicitors can cover medical negligence claims in Ipswich against both private practitioners and the NHS.

If you’ve been injured in an Ipswich accident that was not your fault, you might be looking for solicitors in Ipswich, Suffolk to help with your claim. As we have mentioned, to help you with an accident in Ipswich, solicitors based elsewhere in England and Wales could assist you with your claim. So, how do you choose a solicitor for an Ipswich accident? Perhaps you should look for those who work on a No Win No Fee basis.
Why choose No Win No Fee lawyers to help with an Ipswich accident claim?
The beauty of working with a No Win No Fee solicitor is that you don’t have to pay anything upfront to begin a claim. Under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), which your solicitor will ask you to sign prior to taking on your case, you would pay a small success fee once your compensation comes through. There is a restriction on the amount that the success fee could be; it wouldn’t be more than 25% of your payout.
What happens if my No Win No Fee solicitor doesn’t get me any compensation?
If for some reason, your claim failed, you wouldn’t pay the success fee if your claim didn’t result in compensation. You would not pay the solicitor’s costs either.
To find out more about No Win No Fee claims, and how our lawyers could help with an Ipswich accident claim, please call our team. We’ll be happy to talk you through the process in detail.
How our specialist solicitors could help you make your compensation claim
When you have been injured following an accident that was caused by somebody else’s error, your first thought probably won’t be about making an injury claim. However, when you begin to realise how you’ve been affected, you might search for accident claims solicitors in Ipswich to see if you’re eligible to receive compensation.
We hope that we’ve shown you that you’re not limited to law firms based in Queen Street, Elm Street or Lloyds Avenue.

All of our solicitors are governed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) so you can be sure you’ll be represented by a fully qualified legal specialist.

Solicitors that work for you on Ipswich Accident Claims
If your case is accepted, your solicitor will work hard on your behalf to achieve a fair settlement. Initially, they’ll discuss your case with you so it becomes clear how your injuries have affected you. Then your solicitor will gather evidence that shows what happened, who caused your accident and what injuries you sustained. To help with this, your injuries will need to be assessed independently. Therefore, an appointment will be booked for you to see a local specialist.
Once your solicitor has everything they need, they’ll send your claim to the defendant. They will deal with any solicitors or insurers on your behalf to prevent you from having to answer complex legal questions. If there are any objections or questions raised, your solicitor will try to use their legal expertise to counter them. This might involve sending further evidence to back up your allegations.
Although you won’t need to do too much during the claim, your solicitor will keep you updated about any progress. They’ll also be there if you have any questions that need answering.
If liability for your injuries is agreed upon, your solicitor will try to ensure you receive the right amount of compensation. That means they might turn down the initial offer if they believe it undervalues your level of suffering. Are you interested in working with our personal injury claims solicitors covering Ipswich?
