To make sure you receive the correct amount of compensation for your financial losses you should try to keep a record of all the losses you incur. This will make this part of the claims process quicker and easier for both you and your solicitor.

All cases are different, and the more complicated the matter, the longer it takes to settle a claim.

Generally, a road traffic accident claim can take between 4 to 9 months, while accident at work  claims can take 6 to 9 months.

In choosing a Personal Injury Solicitors, you do not need to choose a firm close to where you live, and it is always best to search for a firm that is established within a field of personal injury you are looking for. The firm should  be active for many years as making a claim for personal injury is specialist area of law and your case would be best served by a firm well versed in the rules and procedure governing personal injury matter – You should also look out for client reviews and testimonials, ideally from an independent source, as this would give you insight into the level of service provided.

When deciding to begin your claim with us, you will be given a copy of the Conditional Fee Agreement to read and sign. As you will notice, our fees will never be more than 25% of the total compensation.

Additionally, you will be asked to purchase ATE (After the Event Insurance), which will cover your legal fees if your case goes to trial.

Following a road traffic accident, it is first important to ensure that neither you nor any other passenger has been severely injured. After that, gathering evidence such as photos and videos, as well as exchanging contact information with the other driver will be beneficial to your claim. Finally, do not forget to report your accident to the police.

Compensation is calculated based on the severity of the injuries as well as the level of damages to your vehicle. Your solicitor will also ensure that any other losses that have occurred because of the accident will also be included.

This would depend on the type of injury and the duration of the injury but as an average a personal injury claim for soft tissue (whiplash injury) injuries only which was prevalent for 12 months would attach an award between £3000 to £3800.

Emotional distress per se is not an actionable injury however if due to an accident you suffer a Psychologically recognised injury such as Post traumatic stress disorder you are entitled to claim for the same, provided there is a underlying physical injury.

There is no such average pay out – this would depend on the facts of each case and what actual losses to be claimed.

Dependents on the facts of each case. Contact us to discuss the matter further.

Be honest and you shall get what you deserve.

This would dependent on the type of nerve injury but any serious nerves injury would attract an award in excess of £10,000 as a wide ball park figure.

The first thing to do whilst your car is off the road is to arrange its recovery. If an engineer decides that your vehicle is non roadworthy then you can choose to rent another car. However, if your funds are insufficient, then you can select credit hire, which means that payment will be settled at a later date.

In most cases, the statutory limitation for road traffic accidents is three years. However, it is best to contact your solicitor as soon as the accident has happened, in order to ensure that he has the appropriate time to work towards the best possible outcome.

If the defendant is fully at fault for the accident that occurred, then your no claims bonus and insurance policy access will remain unaffected. However, if you are found at fault, or accept a split liability agreement, then your insurance will have to pay part of the total compensation, which will have an effect on your no claims bonus.

In most cases, you will not need to go to court. However, if your case happens to be extremely complicated and your presence to the court is required, you will be contacted by your solicitor, who will assist you accordingly.

The short answer is yes. However, passengers can only claim for their injuries and not vehicle damage, unless the passenger is the owner of the vehicle.

If you contributed to the accident in any way, you can still make a claim, and agree to a split liability agreement. In this case you will only receive part of your total compensation, which corresponds to the percentage of liability that you accept. For example, if you agree to a 50:50 agreement, it means that you have agreed to being equally responsible, therefore you will only receive 50% of the total amount.

If you instruct Freeman Harris Solicitors, your claim will be funded by us per the Conditional Fee Agreement. If your case goes to trial, all the legal expenses will be covered by your legal insurance. However, if you do not possess legal insurance, you will be offered the option of purchasing ATE (After The Event Insurance).

Simply put, a no win no fee agreement means that if your case is lost and you do not receive compensation for your accident, we will not be charging you any fees.

In most cases, you will receive your compensation 1 to 2 months after your case has been settled. Your solicitor will ensure you receive the agreed sum after the defendant’s insurance company releases your cheque.   

While the choice to accept the offer is yours, we would advise against it. It is almost certain that the amount offered will be less than the amount you will receive if you allow your personal injury solicitor to settle your claim.

An interim payment is an advance payment payed by the defendant to the claimant, which will be deducted from the total compensation. You can receive an interim payment before your claim has been settled when it is needed urgently.

There are numerous ways to prove that you have suffered injuries from a road traffic accident. Firstly, your solicitor will request your medical records, which can show that you have visited your GP after the accident to seek medical assistance. Similarly, hospital records can show that your injuries required urgent medical care.
Additionally, your solicitor will arrange an appointment with a medical expert who will assess your injuries and draft a medical report. The findings of this report will be essential to show the extend and severity of your injuries.

It is possible to claim against an uninsured or untraced driver via the MIB or Motor Insurers’ Bureau. After the claim has been submitted, the MIB will investigate the circumstances of your accident and if they decide that you were not at fault you will receive compensation. Those funds are raised from insured drivers’ contributions.

Any necessary treatment, such as physiotherapy, will be arranged by us and discussed with the defendant’s insurers who will cover the costs, as long as the price for the service offered is reasonable.
