Frequently asked questions
What types of expenses can I claim for?
There are two types of losses that you can claim for; any financial losses you have suffered as a direct impact of your injury and compensation for the actual injury. Your legal advisor at First4lawyers will work with you to identify these losses to ensure you’re claiming for money that is rightfully yours. The key things you can claim for are:

- Loss of earning through absence from work
- The cost of any treatment required
- The cost of any prescriptions for medicine
- Any equipment or aids to help your recovery
- Traveling expenses to and from medical appointments
- Any increased bills due to being homebound or requiring extra help
- Cancelled holidays or activities you can’t attend because of your injury
- Vehicle hire, storage or repair costs if it was damaged in the accident

How long do I have to make a claim?
Typically you have up to three years to make a serious injury claim if you’re aged 18 or over but timeframes do vary depending on your age and individual circumstances. There are different rules for cases that concern industrial disease, medical negligence and criminal injury claims.
Also, if the accident involved someone who was under the age of 18 then the three years won’t start until their 18th birthday.

Is your service free?
First4lawyers’ initial service is free to all of our accident victims and their families. We will review your claim at no charge and your initial consultation with a solicitor will also be free.
We’re paid by our panel of solicitors because we provide a service that saves them both time and money. This enables us to pick the best serious injury solicitors out there to get the maximum compensation for our clients.
Once your case is taken on you will enter into a no win no fee agreement which means that if your case is unsuccessful you will not have to pay any legal costs. If you win your case then most of the legal fees will be covered by the defendant but you may be required to cover some of the costs from your compensation.
This fee will be discussed prior to commencing your case and will be fixed in advance of any work happening.
For more details about our service speak to our team on 0800 779 7862.
What does no win no fee mean?
One way of funding your compensation claim is a “No Win No Fee” agreement, also known as a “Conditional Fee Agreement”.
This means you will not be required to pay your solicitor a penny for their services if your claim is unsuccessful. There are no upfront or unexpected costs, meaning that making a claim with us is risk and stress-free. Simply let our specialist solicitors do the hard work while you focus on recovering from your accident.
You and your solicitor agree that you will only have to pay your solicitor’s fees if you win your case. There are very few exceptions to this but your solicitor will explain this to you before you start your claim.
