Will I have to pay to claim?
We believe that if you've been in an accident that wasn't your fault, you shouldn't have to pay out of your own pocket to make a compensation claim. That's why we handle 98% of our cases as No Win No Fee claims. This means that we only get a fee when we win compensation for you, to ensure that you are never left out of pocket by legal fees.
Will I have to have a medical for my pedestrian accident claim?
Yes, every successful accident claim is based on medical evidence that proves how serious your injuries are. So as well as getting copies of any medical reports or x-rays from the time of your accident, we will arrange for you to see a doctor to check how badly you have been hurt, and how long your injuries could take you to recover from.
Will I have to go to court for a pedestrian accident injury claim?
Some pedestrian injury claims do end up in court, but most are settled between your Claims Direct lawyer and the at fault party or their insurance company. In many cases, you won't even have to come to our offices if you don't want to. We have offices across the UK, but we're also happy to help you by phone and post if you prefer.
