Making an injury claim

In all cases, answers and invaluable guidance will be offered through a no-obligation phone consultation with a specialist solicitor.
How to choose the best no win no fee personal injury solicitor
You will be in contact with your solicitor for a long period of time, from several months for less serious injuries to potentially years for claims for very severe injury.

Given the impact your solicitor can have on your life, both during and after your recovery, choosing a lawyer that meets your needs is an important first step.

Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for a broken tibula or fibula could vary between £1,000 and £7,370 (based on 2015 market research).
The questions you should ask a solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".
