Making a Personal Injury Claim

Edward Hands & Lewis can help if you have suffered an accident that wasn’t your fault. Our friendly team offers the expertise and support needed to get you through your case, and to get you your compensation on a no-win, no-fee basis.

NO-WIN NO-FEE SOLICITORS – what does it mean?

Our firm is committed to providing legal services with a variety of flexible funding options to suit your claim. The Regulations relating to the funding for personal injury matters changed by statute in April 2013 and our expert team of litigation solicitors has undertaken considerable training to ensure compliance, understanding and awareness of the new Regulations to ensure you are properly advised.

Why make a Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injury claims can be made for most incidents resulting in physical or psychological injuries and compensation is rewarded depending on the degree of your injuries and financial losses caused as a result of the injury.

As many types of personal injury can result in time off work it is important to make a claim for loss of earnings during that time. It is common for people to return to work before they are fully recovered to reduce the effect of this loss. Sometimes this can result in the injury getting worse or preventing the body from recovering correctly. That is why it is important that accident victims make an accident claim and are awarded the compensation they deserve, to give them the time needed to make a full recovery.

Personal injury claims outside work should be successful if it can be shown that someone has been at fault in some way and that this fault or failure caused (or partly caused) the accident. For example, if a customer slips on a wet floor in a shop with no warning sign.

You can claim “General Damages” for your injuries, the ‘pain and suffering’ you have sustained as a result of the accident and for the ‘loss of enjoyment of life’ by, for example, not being able to pursue your hobbies.

You may also be able be entitled to claim “Special Damages” for loss of earnings, potential loss of future earnings and for any expenses which are necessary to aid your recovery such as prescription costs and travel costs.

Starting your claim

This is much easier than you might think.

A solicitor will arrange a FREE initial meeting with you to assess your claim.  We will talk you through the process and what to expect and take any details from you to move forward with your claim.  During our assessment we will give you an idea of how long it will take to settle your claim and provide you with an estimate of how much compensation you may be awarded.
