If you can’t come to us, we can come to you.
In most cases where the driver at fault is insured, yes, we can act for you on a ‘no win no fee’ basis. We will confirm this with you during our initial consultation.
By looking at your income documentation, we’ll work with you to determine how much money you are missing out on while your work vehicle is unavailable. If portions of your income aren’t dependent on having your vehicle, we will need to take this into consideration.
As an example: If you’re employed and rely entirely on your car to fulfil your job, we may look at your daily wages and multiply this by the number of days your vehicle was out of action.
Please note that the required calculations differ for each case. You will need to speak with one of our experts for more details on how we’ll determine your exact loss of income.
The process can also be slightly more complicated for contractors and self-employed people.
This will depend on your unique circumstances. The best way to find out how much of your lost income you could potentially claim is to organise an obligation-free consultation with one of our motor accident lawyers.
This will also rely largely on the specifics of your claim. Depending on how straightforward or complex your case is, it could take anywhere between 6 and 18 months to resolve. However, your expert representative will do everything possible to speed up the process, and we will always keep you informed regarding timeframes and potential delays.
