No win no fee personal injury solicitors
Why should you burden the financial risk of making a claim, if the injury itself wasn’t your fault?
Here at Injury Lawyers Direct, we understand that you’re going through a tough time. And we want to give you the confidence to seek financial justice, without the worry of hefty legal fees.
That’s why, all of our personal injury lawyers work on a completely ‘no win no fee’ basis. We’ll oversee the entire claim on your behalf, and you won’t need to spend a penny. We don’t ask for any upfront payments. You won’t receive any bills. And there’ll be no hidden charges along the way.
We simply keep a record of any costs spent on your case. If the case is successful, the losing party will cover those costs – and we’ll take a small ‘success fee’ from the compensation awarded. If your claim is unsuccessful, the costs will be covered by a legal insurance policy taken out by us.
Further information on the ‘no win no fee agreement’ can be found in our blog. But the take-home message is simple – as the claimant, there’s zero financial risk to you and you have absolutely nothing to lose by making a claim.
How long does personal injury claim take to settle?
It’s one of the first things people ask when making a personal injury claim.
How long will the process take?
Unfortunately, there isn’t a simple answer. Our solicitors may be able to give you a rough idea. But every claim is unique and we don’t have a set formula to work out a specific end date. The time needed to settle personal injury compensation varies significantly from case to case and depends on a range of factors. Here we take a closer look at those factors and how they have an impact.
With our personal injury solicitors, it’s all about the service
We know that you’re going through a tough time. Personal injuries can have a huge life-changing impact on both you and your loved ones. Which is why, it’s so important to find the right legal help.
Here at Injury Lawyers Direct, our objective is simple: to offer the highest standard of service at all times – efficient, professional and compassionate. Guided by your best interests and working under a strict code of conduct, we aim to provide the expert advice and assistance that you need – to ensure your personal injury claim is successful.
As a friendly and approachable team, we’re always on hand to help. We realise that communication is key to an effective client-solicitor relationship. Therefore, we strive to explain everything as clearly as possible – without using any baffling legal jargon – and will keep you fully up-to-date on the progress of your case.
Ultimately, our personal injury solicitors will do everything in their power to secure your rightful level of compensation, whilst also arranging support and rehabilitative care where necessary. But don’t just take our word for it. Be sure to read some of our excellent testimonials:
All the staff were very professional and compassionate at a difficult time for us. I highly recommend!
I had nothing but a positive experience throughout my whole legal journey. Howard helped not only by dealing with the whole situation, but also relaying all options to us and ensuring we knew what that meant without the legal speak. Advice was always timely and to the point, and there was never a moment of ‘but what does that actually mean’ because everything was always clear.
Brilliant service, can’t recommend the guys enough!
If you’re recovering from an accident or injury, and perhaps struggling financially as a result, the last thing you need is a big legal bill to worry about. That’s why, understandably, this is often the first question that comes to mind – how much does the help of a personal injury lawyer actually cost?
The short answer is – absolutely nothing.
Here at Injury Lawyers Direct, we appreciate you’re going through a difficult time and want to make the process of claiming as stress-free as possible. The last thing we want is for you to be put off by the thought of expensive solicitor fees. Therefore, we oversee all claims on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.
Our personal injury solicitors will not charge you for any of the work completed.
We start by providing a free no-obligation consultation to assess whether you’re eligible to claim and the chances of your success. Then, we simply keep a record of any costs incurred. If your case wins, these costs are paid for by the defendant – and we’ll take a small ‘success fee’ from your compensation. In the unlikely event that you lose, all costs will be covered by an insurance policy.
Technically, no. You’re not legally required to instruct a personal injury solicitor to handle your claim. If you wish, you can act on your own behalf and pursue compensation without any legal assistance. But there are several factors you should consider before taking a DIY approach.
Firstly, although it may seem like the cheaper option – without the help of a solicitor – it’s very easy to under settle. And once you’ve agreed to a ‘full and final’ amount, there’s no going back.
There’s a strong conflict of interest between you and the defendant’s insurance company. They may dispute the claim or try to settle the case for as little as possible. But without knowledge or experience in this area of the law, it’s difficult to know if the level of compensation offered is fair.
By contrast, our personal injury specialists will always act in your best interests. We’ve dealt with countless insurance companies over the last 20 years. And we’ll do everything we can to ensure you’re properly and fully compensated for your injuries and recompensed for all your financial losses. What’s more, we can take care of the full legal process for you, saving you time and effort.
Whilst it is possible to handle a personal injury claim yourself, we strongly advise seeking the help of our team. An initial consultation can be provided – free of charge, with no obligation – and, if you have a potential claim, you’re able to pursue it completely risk-free, under our expert guidance.
It’s no longer necessary to meet face-to-face with your personal injury lawyer. All legal proceedings can be dealt with via email, conference call, post, or telephone – and you won’t be expected to visit the solicitor’s office. The only element of the claim that needs to be carried out in-person is the medical (should you require one) and this will be arranged at a local medical centre or GP surgery.
This means, wherever you are in the UK, we can help.
Our personal injury solicitors are based in St Helens, and we’ve assisted countless clients across the North West, including in Manchester, Liverpool and the surrounding areas. But your location really doesn’t matter. Wherever you live in England or Wales, we can assist with your personal injury claim and ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
Every claim is unique and its success will depend on several factors, including who is responsible for the injury, whether the defendant accepts liability, and the supporting evidence available.
But it’s important to keep in mind, our personal injury solicitors vet every case to establish if it’s worth pursuing. And following your initial no-obligation consultation, we’ll advise on both your eligibility to make a claim and the likelihood of its success – should you wish to go ahead.
Established in 2001, our firm is experienced and knowledgeable in this specialist area of the law. We also have a comprehensive team of insurers, medical experts, and barristers at our disposal, with the right skills and expertise for all types of accidents and injuries. As such, we have a fantastic record of success – and in most cases, a satisfactory outcome is reached during the initial negotiation stage.
But don’t just take our word for it – take a look at our fantastic client reviews and testimonials. Over the years, we’ve helped countless people to get financial justice for their pain and suffering, whilst also supporting their rehabilitation. And we could do the same for you. Just call 0800 110 5888.
Personal injury claims are time-barred.
That means, in most cases, you will have three years to start legal proceedings – either from the date of the accident/injury or the date at which you become aware it was someone else’s fault.
There are, however, some exceptions to this timeframe (e.g. if you’re claiming on behalf of a child). And in some situations, the time limit may be shorter. So if you think you may be eligible, it’s worth contacting our personal injury solicitors as soon as possible. Simply give us a call on 0800 110 5888.
The first step is to contact our accident and injury solicitors.
You can either call us on 0800 110 5888 or fill out our online contact form and we’ll get back to you to arrange a free no-obligation consultation. This is simply a chance for us to learn more about the circumstances of your injury and the overall impact it’s had on your life. Using this information, we can then advise on your eligibility and the prospect of your case being successful.
We appreciate it’s a big decision, particularly if you’re going through a difficult time. Therefore, we’ll never put you under any pressure. Whether you choose to go ahead with legal proceedings or not is entirely your choice – and we’ll give you as much time as you need to reach a final decision.
If you do wish to pursue your personal injury claim, simply let us know. Our team will get to work as quickly as possible, overseeing all aspects of the claim on your behalf. From the initial paperwork through to negotiating a settlement, we’ll take care of it all – whilst also helping you to access any services you require for your recovery and rehabilitation.
To start legal proceedings, our personal injury solicitors will typically request:
- personal identification
- evidence of the injuries you have sustained (e.g. medical records)
- proof that somebody else was to blame for your accident or injury
- a record of expenses that you’ve incurred as a result of the accident or injury
You may also be asked to attend a medical examination.
This will help us to build your case and complete the necessary paperwork to send to the opposing party – and the more evidence you have, the better. But if you’re missing a couple of documents, don’t worry. In most situations, as long as you’re eligible, it’s still worth pursuing a claim.
Our advice is to keep as much as possible – receipts, emails, letters etc. – no matter how insignificant it may seem. If you were involved in an accident, try to take photos of the scene. And be sure to make a note of any witnesses and jot down their contact details so we can get in touch with them easily.
Personal accidents and injuries can have a huge impact on your life – affecting your physical health, mental wellbeing, finances, relationships and much more. To ensure you’re recompensed fairly, it’s important that you receive the best possible legal help and support. And if you feel that your personal injury lawyer is letting you down, you’re perfectly entitled to get a second opinion.
It’s worth contacting your current solicitors first, to air your concerns and hopefully reach a solution. But after this, if you’re still not satisfied, our personal injury solicitors may be able to help.
For example, if you’re:
- experiencing frequent delays and periods of unexplained inactivity
- unhappy with the level of communication
- unsure about the advice they have provided
- concerned about the predicted settlement and whether it will cover your long-term needs
- not receiving any support with regards to care and rehabilitation
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We’ve worked on many ‘takeover cases’ in the past and are more than happy to provide our free, impartial advice on your claim – allowing you to make an informed decision on whether you should move.

And our goal – as leading accident lawyers – is to take away any stress, so you can focus solely on your recovery.
