Select a question from the list below and click on it to reveal the answer:
What if I lose?
|If you lose, you do not have to pay a penny. We will cover our own legal costs, and our high level of expertise ensures we have a very large success rate in making personal injury claims.|
How much compensation do I keep?
|You keep 100%. If your claim is successful we get our legal costs from the same people that caused your accident.|
Do I have to fund the experts and barristers fees?
|No. You will not have to fund any of the expenses (called disbursements) in running the claim. The disbursements include medical report fees, medical record fees, experts fees and barristers fees.|
Am I protected from all costs if I lose?
|If we agree to take your claim on, we can set up what is called "conditional fee insurance," which will cover you in the event that your claim goes all the way to court and loses, so that you would not have to pay your opponent's legal costs.|
How much will I get?
|How much compensation you receive depends on what kinds of injuries you have suffered. The nature, severity and duration of symptoms will be taken into account when the claim is valued. Claims can only accurately be valued when a medical report has been produced on a person's injuries, but for a preliminary assessment of how much your injuries could be worth, please contact us on 0800 169 6203 for FREE ADVICE.|
How long does it take?
|Litigation is a slow process and how long the claim takes can often depend on what attitude your opponent (usually their insurers) takes to your claim, the complexity of the case, and the progress of your injuries. We will endeavour to progress your claim with as much as speed as possible throughout, so that there are no unnecessary hold-ups or delays from our end.|
Why use Flanagans Solicitors?
|As solicitors we understand the law and the complexities of personal injury cases. We will use all our expertise to get the most compensation we can for you. We devote the same dedication and care to all of our cases, large or small, whatever the circumstances. We offer a friendly, face-to-face service. We can arrange to visit you in your home or in hospital at the outset of the claim and you are always welcome to book an appointment to come and see us and discuss your claim at any stage during the case.|
Can I Claim?
|If you had an accident that was caused by someone/something else, then you may be able to claim. No two cases are the same, so whether you can claim will depend very much on the circumstances of your accident. If you are considering making a claim, or would like FREE ADVICE on whether you might be able to make a claim, please contact us.|
Will I get fired if I make a claim against my employer?
|Every employer in the country is required by law to have insurance which will cover them in the event of claims being made against them by employees who have had accidents at work. Accidents happen in workplaces across the country and it is perfectly normal to make claims against employers. Insurance companies are experienced in dealing with such claims. It should not represent a problem if you make a claim, but if you have any doubts about making a claim against your employer, please contact us.|
What if the driver who hit me was not insured?
|If you were involved in an accident on the road that was another driver's fault and the driver was not insured, don't worry, you can still make a claim. This is done through the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) and you will still receive the same compensation if your claim is successful.|
What if the driver who hit me did a runner?
|Again, don't worry. The same will apply as above - the claim will be made through the Motor Insurers Bureau.|
How much will it cost me?
|Nothing. If we agree to take your claim on, we work on a No Fee - Win or Lose basis. This means we claim our legal costs from the same people who pay your compensation. You get to keep the full 100% of whatever compensation we recover for you.|
