Frequently Asked Questions

‘No win no fee’ means that you can make a claim through Walker Prestons Solicitors regardless of your financial situation. If your claim is unsuccessful it won’t cost you a penny, so there’s no harm in trying if you think someone else was liable for your accident.

You will receive 100% of your compensation and in most cases the costs will be covered by the other side. If you are liable to pay some costs, this will be made clear to you from the outset, on a case to case basis. We never charge hidden or unexpected costs.

The amount of compensation you receive will be based on a number of factors, including the severity of your injury and the impact it has had on all or some aspects your life. Any loss of earnings due to time off work as a result will be taken into account, as will any expenses incurred as a result of the injury, for example the transportation costs of attending medical assessment and treatments.

We understand that a personal injury may leave you in immediate financial trouble, and that having to wait until your claim has gone through may worsen the situation. That’s why we offer an advance of up to £2000 for our clients; lifting that extra burden from your shoulders.

For more information on the kind of amount you can expect to receive, contact our advisers for free, impartial advice on 0800 193 88 88.

The average personal injury claim takes 8 – 12 months to be settled; everyone involved wants to reach a settlement as swiftly as possible. In the event that you have a more serious injury that requires greater medical attention, the process may take longer but Walker Prestons Solicitors work hard to make sure that you receive your compensation as soon we can.

Proceedings in most accident claims should be started within three years of the date of the accident itself. This amount of time is usually referred to as the ‘limitation period’.

However, in some  other personal injury claims where symptoms have taken a long time to develop for example, in industrial diseases or deafness claims, you will still be able to make a claim long after the illness was originally caused. This even applies if the offending place of employment has long since shut down.

If you are concerned that you have left it too late to make a claim because the limitation period has passed or is coming to an end soon, contact Walker Prestons Solicitors today to receive expert, impartial advice on whether or not you are entitled to make a claim.

Making a personal injury claim against your employer may seem intimidating – you might be worried that it will lead to you being treated differently at work or even losing your job. However, it’s illegal for your employer to dismiss or discipline you for pursuing a claim and doing so could be regarded as ‘Unfair Dismissal’.

Most employers will treat a claim made against them responsibly and professionally – they will have insurance in place specifically for employee personal injury claims. If your employer does dismiss you because of a claim however, you are legally entitled to make another claim against them for ‘Unfair Dismissal’. The law is designed to protect employees who have suffered due to their employer’s negligence.
