    No Win No Fee Auto Accident Claims

    Your claim would be funded on a No Win, No Fee basis which means you will not have to pay anything at the start of your claim and there will be nothing to pay should your claim be unsuccessful.

    When you call us to discuss your claim, our personal injury lawyers will discuss funding and explain, in full, payments to be made from your compensation.

    Are there time limits on making a road traffic accident claim for compensation?

    The time limit for making a road traffic accident claim is three years. This means that court proceedings must be issued within 3 years of the accident date. There are some different time limits and court may decide to extend depending on the circumstances and type of case. When you call us for your initial free consultation our legal team will discuss this with you.
