How to claim

How to make a personal injury claim

If you’ve been injured and need to be compensated, we understand that you’re in a pretty tough situation. To get your life back on track, you’ll probably want to get legal advice as quickly as possible. That’s why our lawyers offer to assess your claim for free and give you expert claim advice. They will outline the types of things you can claim for, advise you on how to make a legal claim and go through all the steps that you will need to take.

At Arnold Thomas & Becker we like to make the whole process as simple and stress-free as possible so you can focus on your recovery.

The following four steps are a summary of how to claim:


Contact us – Talk directly to a lawyer when you call today

Call some big law firms and they won’t even put you through to a lawyer. But when you call us, an expert personal injury lawyer will listen to your situation, answer your legal questions and advise you on how to make a legal claim moving forward. If you can claim compensation, your lawyer will organise a meeting the next business day if you are available.


Meet with your lawyer for free, no-obligation

In this face-to-face consultation, your dedicated lawyer will get all the details needed to properly assess your situation and formulate a legal plan. They’ll also answer any further questions you might have and explain how long your claim might take, what the likely outcomes might be and how our ‘no win no fee’ payment system works.


Know where you stand – Receive a free assessment of your claim

After your first meeting with your lawyer, you’ll receive an assessment of your claim tailored to your situation. This will map out the entire legal process, listing all the steps we’ll take to help you get the financial compensation you deserve. It will also make you aware of important decisions you might have to make.

Rest assured, we’ll be there to provide expert claim advice every step of the way. With your assessment, you’ll now be much better placed to make an informed decision on whether or not you want to pursue compensation.


Get us to move your claim forward

If you decide to have us seek compensation for you, we’ll give you an agreement to sign and get straight to work to get the best outcome possible. Your lawyer should have most of the information they need to pursue your claim, but they will advise you if anything else is needed and keep you informed throughout the process.

We operate on a ‘no win no fee’ payment system, which means there are no costs upfront and you only have to pay us if you win if you have been injured at work, on the road or in public. Some other law firms have a similar ‘no win no fee’ payment system, except in the fine print they hide the fact that you still have to pay disbursement fees if you lose. If your claim is unsuccessful with us, we won’t charge you any fees at all.
