What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim is a legal term for claiming compensation for injuries sustained due to an accident that wasn’t the victim’s fault and was the result of third-party negligence.

There are a number of recoverable costs associated with personal injury claims, which can be pursued by your file handler should you be left out of pocket as a consequence of your accident.

What is the personal injury claims process?

The process of making a personal injury claim begins when a client has suffered injury following an accident that wasn’t their fault.

Upon contacting Winns, all relevant details relating to the accident – how it happened, damage caused, injuries sustained etc. – will be gathered by your file handler who will then begin the process of compiling a case to present to the third party’s insurance provider and begin negotiations over compensation amounts.

Once liability is accepted by the other side then the negotiation can end with a settlement arranged to cover your personal injury compensation, medical costs and costs associated with vehicle repair. There are other out of pocket expenses, but these are dependent on your circumstances.

How much compensation can you claim?

The amount of compensation you can claim is dictated by the circumstances of the accident, the severity of the injury caused and the impact on the victim’s immediate and longer-term lives.

If applicable, any need for property adjustments to accommodate life with an injury will also be taken into account, with the final figure being calculated based on all of this information.

No claim is exactly the same so it is best to discuss with one of our advisors how Winns can help with a personal injury claim and the recovery of any other associated costs.

How long does a personal injury claim take?

The length of a personal injury claim, from start to finish, varies with every claim. This is because of a number of factors which can delay or hinder progress. These can range from the time it takes to gather all evidence that can help prove liability, through to the complexity of the injury and the need for extended input from medical agencies to help with the recovery process.

But if you have as much information at the start of the claims process and respond quickly to your file handler’s requirements, then the process can progress as quickly as the legal timeframes will allow.

How can I pay for my personal injury claim?

If you make a claim with Winns, you don’t need to pay any upfront charges for our service. We will do all the technical legal work, liaising with multiple agencies and progressing your claim across the board to ensure you get the compensation you deserve, all on a no win, no fee basis.

Once the award of compensation has been agreed and decided, as per the no win, no fee arrangement signed at the beginning of the process, Winns will deduct 25% of the personal injury amount awarded as payment for the legal services undertaken during the process.

If the claim is unsuccessful, we won’t take payment, as long as you have complied fully with the process and not been dishonest.

I was really shaken up following a motor accident this morning and wondering how I was going to pay the excess on my lease vehicle to claim for the damage to be fixed on my brand new car. Lewis assured me there would be no costs via Winns taking on my claim, and [he] went over and above to make the process as easy as possible for me.
