The value of your claim is reliant on a variety of factors; these are very individual to you and your circumstances. When assessing the value of your claim your injuries, the impact on your life and any financial impact both now and in the future are all considerations.

No win no fee injury claims

The main concern many of our clients have when they contact us is how they can fund their compensation claim. The majority of the claims we work on are on a no win no fee basis, meaning there isn’t a financial risk to you. 

The first stage in the process of making a claim for facial injuries is to contact us by email or phone and talk to one of our team with the details of your claim. We need to know the type of injuries you have, how severe they are and how they came about. We also need to gain an understanding into how the injuries have had an impact on your day to day life and your finances.

Once we have this information we will be able to assess your claim and advise you on the likelihood of you securing compensation. At this point we would also be able to give you an estimated value range of your claim.

You will have no doubt seen lots of adverts for “Medical Negligence Solicitors” but it is very important you choose a specialist as many claims are undervalued and claimants do not receive the compensation they are entitled to.
