What Should I Do If I have Been in A non fault Accident in the uk?
Check For Injuries
If you’ve been injured in any form of accident, the first and most important thing to do is to seek urgent medical attention. Accidents of any kind can leave you with serious injuries, and various levels of physical pain and suffering. If you are able to do so, check for injuries amongst anyone else involved in the accident to find out if they need medical attention or not.
If there are any serious injuries in connection with the accident, you should call an ambulance to the scene immediately. If your own injuries don’t seem to be serious initially, make sure that you still visit a doctor as soon as possible, and keep good records of any doctor appointments and diagnoses that you receive. Sometimes an injury can develop at a later stage, and you need to make sure that you limit any possible damage. The medical report will also be important for when you contact the No Win No Fee Solicitors to discuss your claim.
Call the Police Or A Manager To The Scene
If you have been involved in a car accident, it might be necessary to call the police to the scene of the accident. It isn’t always necessary to do so, and will largely depend on the situation at hand. If someone is seriously or fatally hurt, you need to call the police. If the car accident is a hit or run, you should also call the police, as this is now a criminal case. Lastly, if there is severe damage to the cars and they are blocking traffic in any way, you will need to call the police to the scene so that they can manage the incident. Keep records of all these details, as our No Win No Fee Solicitors will ask for any reference numbers or police docket numbers when they discuss your claim.
If an accident happens and you sustain an injury at work, you should complete the workplace accident report book immediately, as far as possible in your own words. You will also need to report the accident to your manager so that your employer is aware of what has transpired. You can ask someone else to report your injury at work for you, if you are unable to do so yourself. Our No Win No Fee Solicitors will use this report in support of your No Win No Fee compensation claim.
Watch What You Say
It is important to watch what you say during this time. Tensions are high, and everyone is very stressed at the scene of an accident. One of the biggest mistakes people make is saying too much after an accident. The less you say, the better, as you don’t want to implicate yourself in any way, or affect any future compensation claim you might have.
Gather Information and Evidence About The Accident
Finally, you should gather as much detail and evidence from the scene of the accident as possible. As a normal part of the claims process, the No Win No Fee Solicitors will ask you to share any evidence or details about the accident and your injuries with them, to use in support of your claim. If you can, take photos of the scene of the accident, damage at the scene, and any injuries suffered. Be sure to take down the contact details of all the individuals involved in the accident, as well as the details of any witnesses. Witness statements may come in handy for a future compensation claim, and can help to strengthen your No Win No Fee compensation claim.
How Do I Start A Case With My No Win No Fee Solicitor?
Once you feel able to, it is a good idea to speak to a No Win No Fee Solicitor who is an expert in these types of claims. Making a personal injury claim against those who caused you harm may seem like a daunting task, but the No Win No Fee Solicitors at Free Legal Justice are available to support you every step of the way.

Our No Win No Fee Solicitors Will Check Everything For You
The first important detail that your No Win No Fee solicitor will check is the date of the injury or accident. Generally, any personal injury compensation claim has to be made within three years of the date of the accident, or within three years of the diagnosis of the injury.
The second important point that your No Win No Fee Solicitor will check is that someone else needs to be responsible for the harm or injury that you have suffered. To be able to claim compensation for personal injury, we have to be able to prove that someone else is to blame for the harm caused to you. Once we have made sure this is the case, and we have a clear idea of who is responsible for the injuries you have suffered, one of our highly skilled No Win No Fee solicitors will help you to claim the maximum amount of compensation possible from them. If your claim is successful, you will receive a cheque for your compensation and get the justice you deserve.

Who Can Make No Win No Fee Compensation Claims?
Anyone that has been injured as a result of the actions of another person, or as a result of a breach of a duty of care by another person, may have a potential compensation claim. If the person who suffered injuries was younger than 18 years old, a parent or guardian will be able to make an accident claim on their behalf. There are also specific rules for claiming on behalf of a deceased person. Our No Win No Fee claims team is happy to discuss your claim for free at any stage, and our No Win No Fee solicitors will happily advise you on the potential of your claim, without any obligation to appoint one of our No Win No Fee solicitors thereafter.
How Do You Calculate Compensation in No Win No Fee Claims?
Your legal right compensation is based on getting you back to where you were before your accident. In personal injury claims generally, compensation amounts are calculated based on how serious the individual’s personal injuries are, and the type of care that they may need in the future to be able to recover from, or deal with, their injuries. In a No Win No Fee claim we will also include out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the accident.
Personal injury compensation claims can include what we call general and special damages. In summary, general damages are compensation for the personal injuries you have suffered, whereas special damages are compensation for additional expenses incurred as a result of the accident. Your appointed No Win No Fee solicitor will go through the calculation of general and special damages with you in detail once you have decided to make a No Win No Fee claim.
No Win No Fee Special and General Damages
There are specific rules of the sums that can be claimed as general damages for different levels of injuries in accident claims. Your general damages will be calculated by matching your independent medical report with the official Judicial Board Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages in Personal Injury Cases. The amount of compensation that you will receive will be influenced by factors such as how serious your injury was, complications surrounding your injuries, and how long you will take to recover from your injuries.
To claim for special damages, you need to provide proof of the additional expenses or costs you have incurred to date, or will incur in the future, as a result of the accident. The category of special damages is extremely broad, and can include anything from travel costs, costs of medical and rehabilitation appointments, childcare, loss of income, and broader medical expenses such as prescriptions, physiotherapy, counselling, physical home adjustments, and the cost of any special equipment that you might need during the recovery process.
Examples of General Damages In No Win No Fee Claims
Head Injury Claims
A head injury is a very serious issue and must always be dealt with carefully. If you have sustained any form of head injury, there is a risk that you have suffered some form of brain injury and you should make sure that you seek medical attention immediately. In personal injury claims, the amount of compensation that you will be entitled to claim for head and brain injuries will depend on how serious the head or brain injury is. A person suffering from minor head injury, with no injury to the brain, may be entitled to claim compensation of between £3,000 and £6,000. If there is however serious harm caused to the head and the brain has also been affected, the victim may be entitled to over £20,000 in compensation. In the most serious cases of head injuries, where the victim is left completely unresponsive and has suffered permanent severe brain damage, a compensation claim can total over £200 000.00.
Mental or Psychological Injuries
As with other forms of injury, the amount of compensation awarded for mental and psychological harm will depend on how serious the injuries are. If you have suffered psychological harm that is ruled as temporary, and things in your life are expected to return to normal soon, your compensation claim total anything between £4,000 and £10,000. Where your mental and psychological injuries are deemed to be more severe or permanent, the compensation pay-out can be up to £50,000 in valid personal injury claims.
Upper Body Injuries
If you have suffered minor injuries your upper body, including your neck and shoulders, you may have a compensation claim of up to £6,000, depending on the level of your injuries. If you have suffered severe upper body injuries, such as a dislocation or fracture, you may be able to claim compensation of up to £29,000. The largest compensation claims will be for severe, permanent injuries such as paraplegia, where claims can total anything between £35,000.00 and £200,000.
Hands, Arms, and Wrist Injuries
It can be difficult to calculate the loss that a person might have suffered because of a wrist or hand injury. Less severe hand and wrist injuries could leave you with a compensation claim of between £3,000 and £5,000, while permanent injury or disability accident claims can lead to compensation pay-outs of £30,000.
Lower Body Injuries
Injuries to your lower body include all kinds of injury to ankles, knees, hips and legs. The amount that can be claimed for lower body injuries will again depend on factors such as the nature and seriousness of the injuries. Compensation for minor lower body injuries can reach up to £10,000. If you have suffered lower body injuries leading to permanent disability, loss of limb, or consistent pain, you might be entitled to compensation of up to £25,000.
Back injuries are risky, painful and draining. If your back has been injured in an accident, there is a high risk of spinal damage and it is important that you get a medical assessment immediately to prevent any further potential damage. Back injuries can decrease mobility, and in severe cases they can result in the victim being paralysed for the rest of their life. Accident claims for minor back injuries can reach up to £9,000 in value, while the most serious and permanent back injuries to the nerve root or spinal cord can result in pay-outs of up to £200,000.
Your experienced No Win No Fee solicitor will be able to give you an estimate of the value of your claim once you have provided us with all the details of your case. The different amounts of compensation mentioned above are to be used as a broad guideline to compensation only, and must not be seen in any way as fixed compensation amounts for personal injury claims.
Special Damages In No Win No Fee Claims
To claim for special damages, we will need proof of those additional expenses or costs you have incurred as a result of the injuries that you have suffered. This includes those expenses that you have already incurred, as well as those that you will incur in the future. Special damages which are often included in personal injury claims include:
- Loss of future and past income
- Damage to any possessions;
- Insurance Excess costs;
- Prescription medication costs;
- Medical care, including physiotherapy & rehabilitation costs;
- Travel expenses, including travel to medical appointments and parking costs;
- Any loss of job opportunities, promotions, bonuses or pensions directly related to the injury; and
- Costs relating to the adaptation of your home, necessary to be able to live with your injuries.

Other Physical Effects Of An Accident
The immediate physical effects of an injury may seem quite obvious. First and foremost, your body has suffered pain and damage that can mean a broken bone, a missing limb, a crushed body part. Many injuries can result in someone being unable to complete basic routines and tasks without assistance. This is however not the only way that someone’s life can be affected by an injury. When your No Win No Fee solicitor assesses your claim, all of the physical effects of the Injury will be taken into consideration.
Mobility and Agility
Lower-leg injuries clearly impact a person by reducing their mobility and agility, meaning that they will not be able to walk in the same way as before. If the injury is serious such as an amputation, after proper care and rehabilitation, the injured person will be able to make use of a prosthetic limb to get around and go about their daily life.
Upper limb Injuries can also affect mobility, balance and ability to do daily tasks. A person may be much more prone to falls or collisions with objects after they have suffered an upper arm injury.. They won’t be able to move and use their body as they used to, hold and grip things, push and pull things.
Once someone has suffered an injury, it is likely that their daily routine and daily habits/ other tasks will become difficult or impossible to do – either in the short term or in the long term. Even straightforward tasks such as cooking, cleaning and bathing can be a struggle for people who have suffered an injury. An injured person could be left with limited activities they can do without help, and in serious cases this means that they will no longer be able to be employed in the same job or line of work. If someone has suffered an injury on their dominant side, for example someone who was previously right-handed has lost their right arm in an accident, this person would need to suddenly need to learn how to write, carry and manipulate things with their other hand.
Infections can develop if an injury is not treated properly, or not cared for properly after initial treatment. Unfortunately, infections also lead to further surgical procedures which may require removal of a limb or part of a limb.
Extreme fatigue is common amongst those who have suffered serious injuries, even if they try to hide it. The extra effort demanded of those with injuries, just to perform seemingly simple daily activities, can result in increased levels of tiredness and fatigue. Seriously injured individuals need to exert huge amounts effort and take much more time to do the activities that they did before the injury. Often pain medication prescribed to injured persons can makes them feel more tired and can cause them to sleep for longer. Understandably, the pain and discomfort associated with a serious injury can disturb a person’s sleep and intensify their fatigue.
Because of the obvious and immediately visible physical attributes of an injury, it can be all too easy for people to ignore the psychological and emotional impact that an injury can have on someone. An accident can be a life-changing event for anyone, and it is important that an employee who has been through such an experience is supported as they try to rebuild their life.
If a person has experienced a traumatic accident that results in serious injury, they could have memories and recollections of the incident for a long time after. This could cause post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or other similar psychological conditions. PTSD can cause sporadic flashbacks of the incident; various levels of depression; insomnia and night terrors; emotional instability and angry outbursts, and various other unsettling behaviours.
It is understandable that those with serious or very visible injuries may develop a complex and have poor self-image after their accident. In particular, they may become self-conscious about the appearance of their injured body part.
An Injury can affect an individual’s ability to take part in the same social activities, leisure pursuits or hobbies that they used to before their accident. This might be because of practical reasons, because they physically cannot do the activity, or it could be because of the high level of pain that is caused as a side effect of the injury.
Social withdrawal can often result from an injury at work, leaving the injured person feeling lonely and isolated. A victim’s personal relationships may be affected because of this change in personality and emotional state, and they can begin to hide from society.
