To maximise your chances of a successful claim, get in touch with us as soon as possible while the details of the incident are still fresh in your memory.
The amount of compensation you can claim is determined by the financial losses you've experienced due to your injury and the physical and emotional toll it has taken on you.
Your compensation can typically be divided into two main categories:
At Switalskis, we handle the majority of our personal injury claims on a no win, no fee basis. This means that you won't need to pay any legal fees to us if your compensation claim is not successful. Additionally, there are no upfront costs for you to worry about. Instead, our fees will be deducted from your compensation amount, and this will be taken into account when calculating your claim.
It's also worth noting that your insurance policy may provide coverage for legal expenses. For example, if your injury resulted from a car accident, you may be eligible to claim back some of your legal expenses through your car insurance.
