How long do I have to make a claim?
It depends upon the type of claim you are making but generally for car accidents, slips/trips and work accidents it is within 3 years from the date you suffered injury. In some instances this 3 year period is deemed to start from the date you knew, or ought to have known that you were injured.
Do I have a valid claim?
This will depend upon the facts of each individual case but generally if you have had an accident which was the fault of someone else then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
What can I claim for?
If you have suffered injury then you are entitled to claim compensation for this. You are also entitled to claim for other financial loss which you have suffered such as loss of earnings or the costs of care.
What will it cost me to bring a claim?
Nothing – Tylers Solicitors can act for you on a “no win no fee” basis meaning that if your claim is unsuccessful then we don’t get paid. If your claim is successful then we look to recover your legal costs from the party who is at fault for your accident.
How much compensation will I receive?
Every case is different meaning that it is difficult to answer this without specific information about your case. We are able to provide you with more detailed advice once you provide us with more information about your claim.
How long will it take to obtain compensation?
Every case varies depending upon its complexity. A routine case involving whiplash can settle within a few months whilst a case involving more serious injury can take a longer period of time.
Does it matter where I live?
No – Tylers Solicitors has an office in Manchester, but as your claim is handled by documented and recorded paperwork, we think it makes it easier for you, allowing you to be kept in the loop at all times. handle cases for people from all parts of the UK. The fact that you don’t live locally to our office doesn’t stop us from acting for you.
Do I have to use my Insurance Companies Solicitors to make a claim?
No – European legislation gives you the right to instruct a Solicitor of your choice. You are not obliged to use the panel solicitor of your legal expenses insurer.
What happens after I contact Tylers Solicitors?
