How Much Could your Claim be Worth?

We offer the Legit Claims Calculator so you can make an easy estimate as to how much you can possibly claim for compensation. Many additional factors have to be taken into account, so it is essential to consult your Road Accident Injury solicitor for full details with all your evidence.

Most solicitors offer a No Win No Fee agreement which means that you do not have to be concerned about the legal costs upfront. Under this agreement, the claimant only pays the solicitor’s fee if the claim is decided in their favor. This fee is usually a percentage of the awarded compensation as the costs are directly recovered from the compensation. Best advice would be to always consult your Solicitor just to be sure.

Many solicitors also offer a free initial consultation so you may discuss your case and they can give you an idea of whether to proceed and how much your claim could be worth.
