Would I Be Eligible To Claim Compensation?
If you can provide evidence that your inflicted injuries were a direct result of negligence, you could be entitled to compensation. Our solicitors covering the Leamington Spa area are happy to provide a no-obligation assessment of your claim. To discover more information and helpful guidance, we can offer a consultation that is free of charge and has no obligation.
Do I need to have a lawyer in order to claim?
Despite common misconception, there is no legal requirement for you to have a lawyer in order to claim. Therefore, if you wish to make legal proceedings without representation, you have every right to do so. However, the benefits of having a lawyer handle your claim often outweigh any fees that they charge. This is particularly true if they work on a No Win No Fee basis, as they will only charge a small success fee once they win your compensation for you, unlike traditional solicitors that charge by the hour.
What are a No Win No Fee agreement’s benefits?
If you aren’t already familiar with how a No Win No Fee agreement works, the basic premise is in the name. In short, if your lawyer doesn’t win your claim for you, you don’t have to pay their fee. As mentioned, traditional lawyers often charge their clients hourly rates for their services. However, as part of a No Win No Fee agreement, any fees charged are conditional, based on whether they are successful or not. This way, you won’t have to pay out of pocket before you’ve been awarded compensation, mitigating any financial risk involved in making a claim. What’s more, any success fee that you do pay your lawyer once they’ve won your claim for you will be deducted from your final settlement. This is also legally capped at a minimal percentage to ensure that claimants get the payouts that they deserve.

Would My Illness Or Injury Need To Be Checked By A Doctor?
You are required to undergo a medical examination with an expert in the area of your injury. In doing so, a detailed report shall be created. Within the report, it will cover the status of your injury, its effects, and the overall prognosis. This report shall be completed by an impartial doctor, and the findings will be used when making your claim.
