Personal Injury Solicitors Cheshire
Posted on 9th January 2021 at 10:22
If you live in the Cheshire area you might never need to hire the services of personal injury solicitors. If you are unlucky enough to be the victim of an accident or have been caused injury through no fault of your own, however, you may be able to claim compensation.
At DSM Legal, we have offices serving Cheshire and the North West and our expert personal injury team will be able to advise whether you have a claim or not and what you need to do next.
What is Personal Injury Compensation?
Compensation is obtained if you have personal injury that was the fault of another party. You may have been in a road accident, for example, where the driver of another car was the cause of the crash or collision. Perhaps you had an injury at work and your employer was at fault because they didn’t take the right measures to ensure your safety.
There are three factors that are considered when you decide to take out a personal injury claim:
First, it needs to have occurred within the last three years.
Second, the injury must have caused you psychological or physical injury.
Finally, the accident needs to have been the fault of another party.
Compensation is awarded to help you meet financial expenses or to provide support should you need it following the accident or injury.
How Much Can I Get?
A lot depends on what your needs are and the severity of the injuries. An injury following a car accident that left you with whiplash, for instance, will be easier to get over than one where you have been permanently disabled and the level of compensation will reflect this.
You may need recompense for the time you had to take off work. You could be entitled to compensation because you are unable to work at the same level or earn the same amount of money as you did before the accident. If you have an injury that has left you disabled or one that means you need permanent care, you will have a right to be recompensed if someone else was at fault.
Why Hire Personal Injury Solicitors in Cheshire?
If you have been in an accident or injured and it wasn’t your fault, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible. A personal injury solicitor generally works on a no win no fee basis which means you can get your initial consultation and any subsequent legal help without having to pay out money right from the start. The solicitor’s fee is taken once compensation has been successfully awarded, usually a set percentage of the final payout.
