If you are involved in a vehicle accident or collision, you may be entitled to recover damages from a negligent party’s insurance company if the accident was not your fault. The panel member solicitors will help you make a personal injury claim against the other driver’s insurance company.
Vehicle accidents can lead to a wave of form filling, accident reports, medical bills, and other red tape. Solicitors are familiar with the legal system and the way insurance companies work and will help to navigate this process. They will arrange for you to be medically examined and prepare a medical report on your injuries. They use medical experts who specialize in car accident injuries and thus all relevant issues are fully explored and detailed.
Despite recent efforts by local authorities and the police to reduce the number of accidents occurring on our roads, thousands of road traffic accidents still happen every year.

No Win No Fee
People are often unwilling to approach the solicitor regarding claims for compensation arising from accidents because they are worried about incurring costly legal fees. But that is no longer a problem. Under a Conditional Fee Agreement (no win no fee agreement to many) solicitors will actually agree not to charge any fees at all unless they win the case (i.e. recover financial compensation). In the event that you do win the case your legal fees should be recoverable from the person who caused the accident, or their insurers. Therefore, there is no reason why you should not receive all of your compensation, and have all of your bills paid for you, in the event that you win your case.
Sure, that is all fine, but what happens if you lose? Will you be the one to pay the other side? The simple answer to this problem is to organise Legal Expense Insurance. Your solicitor can advise you on how to go about purchasing such insurance policy at no cost to yourself. In the event that you lose your case the insurance policy not only pays the other side’s costs for you, it also repays the cost of the insurance itself. Therefore, not only is it no win no fee, but also if you lose there is no fee.
No win no fee agreements are an excellent way to fund your claim for compensation arising from a road traffic accident, industrial accident or any other claim for compensation. However, it does not need to be the only method of funding your claim. People involved in a work accident may also have legal protection from their Trade Union, and those involved in other types of accidents may already have Legal Expense Insurance available to them under their motor insurance policy or their home contents insurance policy.
