The simple answer is no. Your insurance solicitors may contact you to inform you that they can legally represent you in your case, however you are free to choose your own personal injury solicitor. This is why many clients choose us because we take care of everything for them.
The simple answer is yes there is. This time depends on a number of factors but the basis in England and Wales is 3 years from when then injury was sustained. This figure differs if it is in regard to children, criminal injury claims, if the client lacks the mental capacity and such.
For Clinical Negligence the time limit is slightly different. It is still 3 years from when the injury was sustained, or if the client didn’t know that there was an injury sustained, then the 3 year period begins when the client is aware of the injury.
More detailed information can be supplied from our accredited solicitors on request.
Depending on the type of accident you have had (e.g. road traffic accident, medical negligence) there are different solicitors that specialise in different areas. This is where Personal Injury Solicitors Manchester comes in. Depending on the type of injury you have sustained, we will get in contact with a specialist solicitor who has a great reputation and expertise in serving clients for their specific accident claim. In essence we take care of all the hassle for you when choosing a solicitor, so all you have to do is focus on your healing and recovery time ahead.
For the majority of cases, court appearances by the client are not necessary as our solicitors settle your compensation in court for you. There are however some cases that do require you, the client, to attend court to settle your compensation. On these occasions our solicitors will inform you in advance if you need to attend the courtroom.
This largely depends on the type of injury you have sustained and whether or not you make a full recovery from the accident and the recovery time. More serious injuries usually take longer to recover from and thus will take longer to settle a claim for compensation.
Again, one of our trained and qualified solicitors will be able to answer this in more detail.
Our accredited solicitors work on a No-Win-No-Fee basis so this means that you won’t have to pay a penny from your own pocket either way. The fee for winning the case will be collected from the solicitors on the other side. More information on this topic can be discussed with one of our solicitors who we work with.
The amount of compensation to be received by you will depend on the type of accident that you have suffered. One of our specialist solicitors that we work with will be able to advise you further on compensation amounts based on the injury you have sustained.
In addition to getting you compensation for the injury you have sustained, there is also a possibility of getting you compensation for your lost wages depending on if the type of injury you have sustained has affected the ability for you to work. Again, one of the specialist solicitors who we work with will be able to advise you more on this.
