Leeds Solicitors in Personal Injury
Here at Accident Line Direct, our trained personal injury solicitors that cover Leeds and the rest of the UK are available to represent you if you have been injured or taken ill as a direct result of someone else’s negligence.
How to Start a Personal Injury Claim in Leeds
Collecting evidence and making that call to Accident Line Direct is the first stage of the claims process.
From there, we will assess your case and decide whether it is suitable for our No Win No Fee agreement by assessing the evidence available (witnesses, photographs, CCTV, etc.), who was at fault, and whether any medical documentation has been provided.
Whether or not you are entitled to compensation generally depends on your personal claim, as they vary so much between each case that it is difficult to gauge an idea without the full details.
However, personal injury claims revolve around they key phrase ‘duty of care’.
What is Duty of Care?
Someone has a duty of care if they are morally or legally obliged to ensure the safety or wellbeing of another person. For example, drivers and pedestrians have a duty of care towards each other, as do employers for employees.
If a party disregards their duty of care towards you, and you consequently become ill or injured as a direct result of their carelessness, you could be entitled to compensation.
Remember to get in touch as soon as possible, as you do only have a three year period from the incident to make a personal injury claim in Leeds. For any accidents that happened more than three years ago, please don’t hesitate to get in touch as we may still be able to help you.
As well as being owed a duty of care by people in every-day situations, it’s important to remember that you must also be careful not to breach your own responsibility for other people.
In sports, as an example, a duty of care is owed to the participants from the club, coaches, referee, other participants, the facility owner and grounds manager.
Finding the Best Solicitor in Leeds
Choosing the best solicitor for your personal situation can be difficult, and the claiming process as a whole is daunting for some that aren’t familiar with it.
Here at Accident Line Direct, we provide high-quality services and experienced personal injury lawyers who are ready to commit fully to your case.
We take pride in retrieving the best compensation for our clients, aiming to do so in a timely manner while keeping you updated on all major advances in the case.
We also provide our services on a No Win No Fee basis, meaning that we are significantly less financially risky than solicitors who do not.
How Does No Win No Fee Work?
No Win No Fee agreements allow you to make a claim with very little financial risk to you, as you are not required to pay any solicitors’ fees until after the claim is successful.
Here at Accident Line Direct, we only require a small fee once your compensation has been rewarded. On rare occasions that we accept your claim on a No Win No Fee agreement and it is not successful, you won’t have to pay for a service that has essentially not benefited you in any way.
We feel it is only fair that we don’t take a fee from you until the claim is complete and we have delivered adequate compensation for your claim.
What Percentage do No Win No Fee Solicitors Take?
When we successfully recover your compensation, our personal injury solicitors will only require a small percentage of the total amount paid out to you – capped at 25%.
If you believe you have been subject to negligence and have been injured as a result, start your claim today by giving us a call or completing our short contact form.
