Making a claim FAQs:

How much will it cost to make a claim?

Corries Solicitors handle all claims on a No Win, No Fee basis, meaning that you do not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful. Our friendly experts are here to help you through the claims process. For a free consultation call Corries Solicitors on 01904 527430 or contact us online

Our success fee is usually 20% +VAT of the amount we recover for you.

Other than the success fee, will I have to pay anything else?

We will not charge if your claim is unsuccessful.

In some cases we might recommend that you take out an After the Event (ATE) insurance policy, we will advise you if this is necessary. The cost of this would also be deducted from your compensation.

How much compensation will I receive?

The amount will depend on factors such as the severity of your injuries,  your loss of earnings, travelling expenses and prescription charges.

Will I have to go to court?

It is unlikely as less than 1% of claims end up in court. Most cases settle out of court.

What can you help me to claim for?

You may be able to claim for the cost of the following:

Personal injury, the emotional consequences of that and the impact it has on your day-to-day life.

Property damage,  for example, damage to your vehicle.

Loss of earnings

Travel expenses and prescription charges

How do I know if I have the right to claim compensation?

If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should be able to claim. We can advise you if we think you have a good case or if there are reasons why you cannot claim.

How long will my case normally take to settle?

This depends on the individual circumstances of your case. Straightforward cases may be settled within a few months, however, the following issues will make a case a little longer:

– If the insurance company doesn’t accept liability.
– If the other side is uninsured.
– If the case has to go to court.

What’s the process of claiming from the moment I call you?

1) We will ask you to tell us what happened.
2) We will collect evidence required.
3) We will arrange a medical examination
4) We will present your claim to the insurance company.

5) we will negotiate a settlement and discuss any offers with you

Is there a time limit for making a personal injury claim?

You have up to 3 years from the date of the accident to lodge a claim.

You can make a claim on a child’s behalf at any time after the accident happened before the child reaches the age of 18.

Can I claim for someone who has died?

If you would like to pursue a claim on behalf of a loved one who has sadly passed away,  you can make a claim within three years of the date of death.

Will I need to meet with my solicitor face to face?

Many clients worry that they will need to take time off work or cancel prior engagements to meet face-to-face with the solicitor.  There is however no need to worry, Corries  Solicitors are happy to contact you via email, phone, text, post or face-to-face meetings should you wish.

Will I need to provide you with documents?

Any relevant documents will be helpful to your claim and speed up the process. Many of the documents can be scanned or posted when needed. We aim to help you make this as easy as possible.

How often will I be contacted regarding the progress of my claim?

We will provide regular updates throughout the claim.

Will it weaken my case if I didn't see a Doctor at the time?

You do not have to have seen a doctor at the time to make a claim.

Physiotherapy Treatment

If you arrange your own treatment then you will have to pay initially, however, if you let us have the invoices we will include the cost in your claim.

What if I do not understand any of the legal terminologies?

Your solicitor will explain any legal terminology that you are unsure of. At Corries we will always try our best to explain in plain and simple English.
