Making a claim

When you make a claim, you need to make sure you have the best possible legal representation. We understand the intricacies that go into the process and can offer expert guidance from the very first call until you receive your settlement cheque. Lance Mason is more than just a law firm; we want to make sure that each individual client feels assured and confident in the people working on their behalf.

Claims process

Initially, we will discuss the specifics of the accident and advise whether or not you have a case.  One of our solicitors will then arrange a medical appointment and begin to gather evidence to support your case. If liability is accepted by the defendent’s insurers, we will negotiate a settlement on your behalf. If liability is rejected, we will issue court proceedings upon your instruction. However, it is important to note that most cases settle out of the courtroom, even when liability was denied in the first instance. For more information, see our claims process page.

What are my rights?

If you have had an accident that wasn’t your fault and suffered injuries as a result, you have the right to claim compensation. You have the right to choose your own legal representation and change law firm or solicitor at any point during your claim. You have the right to end your claim at any time, although you may become liable for any costs incurred on your behalf. Due to the statue of limitations, the window for making a claim is three years after the date of the accident.

No win no fee

“No win no fee” is part of your Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). It ensures that in the event that your claim proves unsuccessful, you will not be made liable for any costs incurred on your behalf. It is a means of financial protection. For a full explanation on no win no fee, speak to our experts today.

How much compensation?

The amount of compensation you will receive is dependent on the severity of your injuries, the time it took you to recover, the financial costs incurred as a result of the injury and any loss of earnings. To estimate how much your injury might be worth, you can use our compensation calculator.
