Types of Claim
Why Claim Compensation?
Anyone who has suffered an injury or illness that was not their fault has a legal right to pursue a claim for compensation. Some claimants will be facing life changing circumstances and the financial implications can be huge. They may be off work for a very long time – if they are ever able to return – and will be struggling to cope with a temporary loss of income.
At the very least, claiming compensation can recover this lost income and costs you have incurred as a result of your injury or illness. However, as well as winning a financial settlement, claiming compensation with Direct2Compensation and our expert injury solicitors can help you in other ways and there are many good reasons to make a claim.
- Making a compensation claim is a legal right, and if you succeed, it fairly compensates you for the injuries or illnesses you've sustained that were not your fault.
- A successful claim can help pay for private medical treatment and rehabilitation therapies to maximise the extent of the recovery you can make.
- Settlements can help you recover any lost income now and in the future if you are prevented from working again.
- You may also be able to claim any projected costs for post accident care and finance to cover expensive alterations to property and vehicles.
- If an accident or illness proves fatal, loved ones can claim compensation for their loss.
As all claims are made on a no win no fee basis, you will never be charged if your claim does not succeed. A successful claim will lead to a compensation settlement being made to you, with the value of the claim including any lost income and incurred costs as well as a settlement for the injuries and medical treatment that you have sustained.
The Claims Process
We remain involved throughout the entire process of the claim. We're here to help you should you need it. We take the hassle out of claiming and enjoy helping our clients win the compensation they deserve.
Step 1: Get in touch
The process of claiming no win no fee, personal injury compensation starts with you telling us the details of your accident so we can find the best way to help you. This enables us to evaluate your claim and to see if the circumstances of your accident and injury will allow you to claim successfully.
To discuss your claim, email [email protected] or you can call us if you wish on 01225 762045. At Direct2Compensation, we start as we mean to go on, offering a fully compliant no win no fee personal injury claims service. You'll face no charges whatsoever if you lose your claim and we'll always be honest, fair and sympathetic.
Step 2: Solicitor consultation
Once you contact us, we'll call you to find out more about your situation and obtain the necessary details for the first stage of your claim, and then pass your details to the right solicitor. The solicitor will then contact you to discuss matters in greater depth and offer you advice about your claim for injury compensation.
Once this is complete, they will prepare the paperwork and send copies to you along with a Conditional Fee Agreement so that you can officially instruct them to commence work on your behalf.
Don't worry if this sounds complicated, as at Direct2Compensation we offer the complete service, ensuring that your relationship with the solicitor is simple to understand and that any paperwork is explained in a simple and clear fashion should you so need.
Step 3: Claim starts
Your solicitor will ask us, or you the client, to complete certain tasks relevant to your claim and then take them forward in pursuit of compensation. The solicitor will keep you updated throughout the process of the claim.
It is important to instruct a solicitor to pursue your claim as they will fight for justice for you, working towards a prompt settlement to get you appropriate compensation for your injuries and losses. Your solicitor will also seek effective treatment for your injuries to return you to your pre-accident medical condition.
Step 4: Settlement
It is not possible to put an exact time-frame on how long your claim will take or how much compensation you'll receive, although your solicitor should be able to give you an idea as the claim progresses.
In some cases, such as road traffic accident claims, it is now a much quicker process than before with claims for minor injuries settling in 3-6 months. It can often take longer in matters where injuries and losses are more serious, or the full extent of the problems caused by injuries are yet to be known.
Every claim is managed on an individual basis, and your solicitor will be best placed to give advice specific to your claim as and when you instruct them to pursue it for you.
No Win No Fee
No win no fee has had its share of bad press but is in essence a fair and just means of providing everyone with access to justice, especially to those who can't afford to pay solicitors' costs.
We are proud to be part of the personal injury claims industry and help our clients to claim compensation they deserve in an efficient and ethical way. The no win no fee system may have changed since the introduction of the Jackson Reforms in April 2013, but you still pay nothing if you lose and retain the maximum amount of compensation should you win.
However, the changes mean you now contribute a small amount should you win your claim. Any deductions are limited to 25% maximum and are taken from your compensation before you receive the balance. It continues to be very much worth it for a claimant to pursue their claim.
At Direct 2 Compensation, our no win no fee claims process complies fully with the requirements of legal and government legislation. This guarantees that the bulk of your legal costs will be paid for you when you win your claim for accident compensation and that you will receive at least 75% of any compensation settlement awarded to you. The balance of your legal costs will be payable by the 3rd party.
In the event that your no win no fee claim is not successful, you will never be liable for the costs incurred. You will not be charged for any claim should it fail to succeed in your favour, so long as you are not acting fraudulently.
