Frequently Asked Questions

How long after my accident do I have to make a claim?

The simple answer to this question is 3 years from the date of the accident. However there are a few exceptions to this rule. For example if you were a child at the time of the accident you’re time limit does not start until you reach 18. To confirm whether you are still able to claim please contact GHW Solicitors as soon as possible.

How much will I have to pay?

The majority of cases we will take as on ‘No win, No fee’ and you will therefore not have to pay anything at all. If you win, we will seek our costs from the insurance company of the losing party. Please feel free to give us a call and we can discuss this in more detail with you.

How much compensation am I likely to receive?

It is very difficult to estimate how much personal injury compensation a person will receive until the full circumstances of the accident are known and we know a little more about the injured person.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no standard amount of compensation for any particular type of injury. Each compensation claim is dealt with individually and on its own merits.

Once one of our lawyers has spoken to you and assessed your personal injury claim in more depth, they will be able to provide you with an estimate as to how much compensation they think you should be awarded.

Will I need to go to court?

Very few personal injury claims proceed to Court as this leads to an increase in the legal costs, which would be payable by the person responsible for the injury or their insurer.

In extreme cases, where there is a dispute, you may have to attend Court; however, your Solicitor will talk you through the whole process to ensure you are comfortable with it long before the final decision needs to be made.
